Winter Edition: Week 1

Just a quick note before we get going- remember that the prompts are really basic so that they're accessible for anyone who wants to participate. BUT that doesn't mean you should take the easy or obvious route. Stretch yourself! Try new things.

Also, the prompts are open to interpretation. Just a guideline to help you when you walk into your closet in the morning. During the last round one of the prompts was to tuck. Malorie was pregnant at the time (not an ideal time for tucking shirts into pants) and ended up wearing a tie tucked into a cardigan. Perfect example of taking a prompt and making it work for you and your life and your closet.

(P.S. Just saw that Malorie had her baby a few short weeks ago..congrats!!)

Here are the prompts for week 1:

January 23: Layers
January 24: Monochrome
January 25: Embrace a trend
January 26: Channel someone
January 27: Pattern mixing

The first inspiration post goes up tomorrow! Let's get this party started.


  1. These are all great! Thanks for posting them ahead of time...I put all my week's outfits together on Sundays...I got zero time in the am to play with my clothes!

  2. I'm in! Can't wait :D

  3. Stupid question: what counts as a trend? It seems to me that whenever I see enough people wearing something and I go out and buy it, they all stop wearing it soon afterward. Hahaha. I think I wait too long. I know you did color blocking at the last one, but I don't know if that's still "in." One thing I've been kind of wanting to try is the loose blouse with pencil skirt look, but I don't have a pencil skirt. Hum.

    Stripes are everywhere; is that a trend? What about skinny jeans, or is that just a foundational piece? I looked up what the trends are for fall 2011 and spring 2012, and it just seemed to couture for me. Like, I can't afford to go out and buy something furry just to be on the cutting edge of fashion.

  4. That's funny that you ask...I had a heck of a time figuring out what current trends were so I could give a list in my post. The ones you mentioned are good. Stripes, polka dots, sequins, braids, ballerina buns, skinny jeans, wide legged jeans, colored denim. I think color blocking is still in but haven't seen much of it lately (because of winter?).

  5. Ooh, I thought of some more: tiny graphic prints of birds and other whimsical things, colored pants, '60s inspired, coral and rust.

  6. I'm super excited. I don't know whether to start from the beginning or pick up with tomorrow's prompt!
