How's everyone doing with their challenge? In just a few days I will have worn every item out of the thirty at least once and then the real science begins. Science? Yes, I really do believe there is a science behind dressing and it's one of the original reasons I started this blog. Life is a multiple of factors (name plug) and figuring out what to wear to accomodate various situations can be a huge challenge. For example, when I wake up and it's raining I need to figure out how hard, whether or not it's warm rain or cold rain, what (if any) meetings I have to attend and what I want to pack for lunch ALL before I can even think of what to put on. More often, it's just a trial and error process: I think, "I want to wear my brown wedges," but then I realize that it's raining too hard to ride my scooter so walking to work is in order and my brown wedges are really heavy and I'm already bringing a can of soup and a grapefruit, so I opt for carrying along a lighter pair of shoes. I would say that in this way, my outfits usually start from the bottom. Once I have the shoes figured out I can figure out legwear/dresses.
What about everyone else? What item of clothing/accessory do you build your outfits around?
