The 21 Day Challenge: Week 1

Woohoo! Are you ready? The fun starts Monday and the first inspiration post goes up tomorrow!!

Remember that these are super basic prompts. Use them as a base to build a put-together outfit that suits you. Be as creative as you want! I intentionally drew up a flexible list so that participants of all styles would be able to come up with outfits that suit them using stuff they already own.

If you haven't already, now would be a good time to get a Flickr account so you can post your pics in the 21 Day Challenge Flickr group! If you're planning on blogging your outfits, the link parties will open at 7am Arizona time on that day and stay open for 72 hours (so for Monday's prompt you can submit your link starting at 7am and you have until 7am on the 18th).

So you have some time to prepare, here's an overview of the prompts for this week. Make sure to come back and read the individual posts though. They have tons of inspiration pictures and explanations and stuff.

Monday, August 15: Pick an item to remix 3 times over the next 3 weeks (can't be jeans!!)
Tuesday, August 16: Tuck it in
Wednesday, August 17: Mix patterns
Thursday, August 18: Color block
Friday, August 19: Belt it
Saturday, August 20: Get creative (wear something in an unexpected way)


  1. Fun--I'm excited! I have brainstormed a bit the past few days about what the prompts might be, and I feel like a good guesser now. I can also tell this exercise is going to stretch me a bit, which I was hoping would happen.

  2. Yay!! This will be fun!!

  3. Thanks for posting the list now! I can tell already that this is going to make me get creative - I'm glad I get a little time to brainstorm!

  4. Really looking forward to this! :) But how do the link ups work? Do I just paste in a link to the blog entry that fits each day?

    This is going to be a challenge for me!

    There's a widget that will be at the bottom of each post. You copy and paste your link into the field and follow the prompts. It's really easy and creates a bunch of thumbnails for you to see how other people have participated!


  6. Looking forward to this! I really appreciate you posting the prompts for the week, because that will help me get going!

  7. Woohoo can't wait to get started tomorrow. Now to just decide on an item to remix during the challenge.

  8. Ok- I'm going to try this out and I'm really excited- this is my first fashion challenge ever! I think I linked my blog to this but I'm not sure, how can I check? (I reaaly want my 5 points. my blog is :) And if I link my outfits from my blog do I have to do the whole flicker thing too?

  9. Just had to let you know that I'm already loving this challenge..they are my first posts to my new fashion blog! Thanks for the inspiration..I have been contemplating the idea of starting one up and your challenge gave me the push to just try it out.

  10. I think you should do another post like this for next week, it was SO nice to be able to plan ahead for the week knowing what each days challenge would be. Just a thought, I'm sure we'd all appreciate it.

  11. Amy-

    I did it for the second week here and the list for the third week goes up tonight.
