Week 1 of Frugal Fashion February done and dusted, and I’m sharing what I wore and why.
Another month, another style challenge. Well, this time it’s more of a fiscal challenge.
Boy, the last few weeks were hard.
I had every intention to blog about my progress every week for my #NoSpendber challenge but the second week of November was jam packed with marking so there was no chance. However, the week that just passed also saw me participating in a different style challenge which is a good reason to blog about both.
On Tuesday (the 1st of November) I announced on Instagram that I would be undertaking a personal challenge which I dubbed #NoSpendber. Here’s a little bit more on what it’ll entail and why I’m doing it.
I did it! Who would have thought, 30 outfits from only 13 items of clothing? It was DEFINITELY a challenge, believe me, but it did get my stylist head into gear to create some practical yet stylish outfits that could work in a variety of situations.
The jumpsuit makes another (and last!) appearance for Outfit 29 of the 13 going on 30 challenge, and assuming that one didn’t sweat excessively in the previous wear of it, then it’s OK to wear again.
Print on petite ladies such as myself is a bit hit and miss. Generally, the bigger the print, the more overwhelming it is on women who are a bit vertically challenged, especially if it’s longer piece of clothing like a maxi dress of maxi skirt.
Prints are a great way to draw attention to a part of the body that you’re proud of. It also works to enhance an area that might need a little “help”.
Are you a silver person? Gold person? White gold person? Rose gold person? Some people prefer a particular metal over others when it comes to their jewellery; my aunt, for example, wears nothing but gold.
