|I'm one of those blog button people now - aren't YOU jealous???|
Invisible Internet Friend Amy at Forever 29 and I will be co-hosting this first What to Wear Where link-up! *jazz hands*
The idea is that we - and hopefully you! - will post an outfit each Tuesday that we plan to wear for an event actually happening in our lives at that time, in clothes we would actually wear - you know, as opposed to the magazine editorial look where moms are dropping off kids at school in pigeon-fur stillettos or whatever.
Here's what our first month's schedule will look like:
- Tuesday, August 28th: back-to-school open house
- Tuesday, September 4th: family photo session
- Tuesday, September 11th: girls' night out
- Tuesday, September 18th: transition to fall
These posts can look however you like - take photos of an outfit you already have, for example, or create a Polyvore set of your dream look. Style the cat in her family photo finest if you prefer. All we ask is that you work with that week's theme, grab that button thingy up there, and link back on the host's page (so next week, that's either Amy or me) to your post.
("But MELISSA!" I can hear you thinking, a perfectly groomed eyebrow raised in judgment. "Didn't you just talk about how stuff doesn't make you happy?!? Isn't this, like, way ironic?"
Maybe, but - as a former lawyer, there's always a "but" - (a) it's my blog; (b) so there; (c) also, we do have to leave the house in clothes that cover our bits, don't we, so we may as well do it in clothes we enjoy?
For what it's worth (d) I'm challenging myself to do at least the first two of these with clothes already in my closet, so stuff still < non-spendy non-stuff. (e) No, really. (f) I do promise to try and mix it up with non-spendy stuff in between.)
Before I run out of letters, let me wish you a happy weekend and beg / plead / harrass those of you with blogs to link back here on Tuesday, August 28th!
