I have always loved a capsule wardrobe challenge but this one was the most challenging yet.
Last month my blogging buddy Sarah London and I decided to launch a Capsule Wardrobe Challenge using only preloved items.
The 10 items I chose would not have been the clothes I would neceassrily have chosen from my wardobe but what I learned was how much restriction leads not only to creativity, but pushing oneself out of the comfort zone.
I hate my legs. I feel they are short and stocky and would only have dared to wear a mini skirt with thick back tights. But I was bored with thick black tights.
And now, I had nothing to lose.
Unless my legs are tanned I hate to expose bare legs so these large fishnet tights offered a little coverage.
And once I tried them with the skirt, I quite liked it.
I then tried some bright red tights I had bought but never worn and experimented with wearing the shirt back to front and underneath a top.
I even had a go at showing off my midriff which I had never even considered but by the end of the challenge I had gained a little more confidence.
So what have I learned from this challenge?
Just one lesson - don't knock it until you've tried it!
Why not have a go?
I am off to see how Sarah got on here.
