You can read all about it on her blog, but the general idea is that you choose ten things from your closet that just scream YOU, and then you wear at least one of those items every day with anything else you want. It's born out of the same cloth as a capsule wardrobe without the restrictions. Here's the thing - I tried a capsule wardrobe, and I hated it. It was far too restrictive for me. I enjoy my clothes, I enjoy having fun with fashion, and I have a big enough closet that it's really not necessary for me to try and whittle my closet down to seven shirts and one pair of shoes. I'm hoping that this challenge helps me learn a little more about what my style REALLY is. The other thing that's cool about it is that at the end of a month, I'll have a whole list of "One piece, X amount of Ways" to show off! I'm going to push myself to really remix the pieces and wear them different ways. It's a great opportunity to learn how to get the most out of the pieces you love the most.
I had a little trouble picking out my top ten. As it so happens, my most worn pieces are some of my most loved. But they're ALSO some of my most basic items. That wouldn't stretch me at all, so I chose some pieces that are a little more difficult to wear but I love, or pieces that I've been wanting to do more with. I've already learned something from this challenge - I seriously need a little variety in my closet. I also learned that I still can't quite put my finger on what is and isn't my style or what makes me like certain things than others. We'll get there.
So without further ado...here's my top ten! Note, this could be subject to change if I determine one piece isn't working out.
