After last week’s Outfit Archive post, the fabulous Vix from Vintage Vixen set me a challenge that worked with my ‘style recycled’ theme – choose five things from your wardrobe (a dress, trousers, top, skirt and another of your choosing) and wear them (and only them) through the week, changing the pieces each time with a clever use of accessories.
Now, I’m not one to turn down a challenge, but only ONE top?! Rather than spend the week chained to the washing machine, I decided to cheat just a little bit and up the stakes from five to six – two tops, trousers, a dress, a skirt and my choice – a cardigan (naturally).
I chose simple basics in neutral colours because they’re so easy to style. Throughout the week I’ll be using my vast collection of belts, scarves, necklaces, shoes and jackets to make a whole wardrobe from just six items.
So, here it goes – Monday’s look…
Zara dress and cardigan, Zara Taylor necklace, Primark tights, socks and brogues, John Rocha satchel via car boot sale
This dress has fast become a favourite of mine, and teamed with tights and cute ankle socks the whole look is very school girl. Which, unless the word ‘sexy’ is inserted in front, is always a good thing.
So how’d I do on the first day of my challenge? What did you think of my outfit? And will you be joining me on my Six Piece Wardrobe quest?
