Tomorrow, I’m going to start the “1 Dress, 100 Days” project, sponsored by Wool&, and completed by hundreds of other women. I’m very excited…
My dress will be the Sierra Tank Dress – 100% wool and softer than you can imagine. Mine, of course, is black!
I plan to Instagram what I wear every day and put it here on The Vivienne Files. That means there will be posts here EVERY DAY for the next 100 days – although many of them will be pretty brief. On my normal “off days,” I will show you what I’m wearing and make any observations or comments about what I think about the whole process.
But what can one do with the same dress for 100 days?
- Wear it alone, with accessories, or
- wear it with something under it, like a blouse, shirt, tee shirt or lightweight turtleneck, or
- wear it with something over it – a sweatshirt, sweater, shirt, or jacket!
What ideas do I have about this dress?
(I thought up 14 things for the 14 weeks of the project; please note that these are NOT how I will be wearing my dress…)
There’s a group on Facebook (you have to be approved to join, but I don’t think that’s a big deal) dedicated to this project. Many women do NOT choose a black dress for their 100 days, and many women don’t do a lot of accessorizing or layering.
But most of the participants seem really happy with what they’re trying…
We shall see!
p.s. Seven years ago, our heroine set aside 9 pieces of clothing to be worn for NOTHING but travel for the next few months… She’s wearing the same outfit to work every other Friday – will anyone even notice?
