I’m now beginning to feel like this is my permanent uniform! It’s colder at the International Headquarters of The Vivienne Files than it is in the rest of the apartment, so I bundle a bit…
Note that all of the tops except the last are worn OVER my dress – the last top is a long-underwear-ish piece that’s under my dress!
I honestly (still) can’t decide if I would be hitting the boredom wall right now or experiencing a new-found freedom. With the number of accessories and different tops I have it wouldn’t be hard for me to do this, I’m just not sure I would want to……. this coming from a person who has three pair of the same pants, because that’s how often I wear them!
It’s both. And then I realize that if I’m bored, maybe there’s something OTHER THAN CLOTHING that will amuse me. Between falling a few days ago and being busy at home, it’s kind of freeing to just get in the morning, grab a tee shirt or turtleneck, my dress, and a scarf and be finished…
I hope you’re o.k. after the fall, Janice.
I’ve found this fascinating.
I LOVE the idea of wearing THE dress everyday, how freeing! I do have some practical questions though. Being 75% wool, is it scratchy? Do you wear a t-shirt layer under the dress everyday before adding an outer top. Also how does it wash? Many thanks!
Hi Geri, I thought I would respond to your questions because i have 2 Wool& dresses one with 3/4 sleeves and one with long sleeves that I bought when Janice started her challenge. I wear a black full length slip because of static cling and also they are thin and I prefer the modesty. If it’s cold I will wear a cotton camisole or a 32 degree long underwear tshirt I purchased from Costco. I have rotated them into my wardrobe and I wear them both each week. I went on a 10 day trip and wore the grey dress every day and I really enjoyed it. I have found that i needed to hand wash it about every 10 days, hang it to dry overnight and it is good to go. I hope this info helps.

24 more days to go – what will you wear then? I think that I would be counting down the days now until I could wear something else. I need colour and variety in my life. Hope you’ve recovered from your fall.
Janice, I hope you are ok, too.
How is the static/cling of the dress on leggings? Do you wear a slip?
A beige/goldish sweater? Wow. There are strange goings on at the International Headquarters of the Vivienne Files.
I am still loving all your looks. I have put in my request for a dress or gift card for Christmas. So we shall see!
