Fashion Challenges

Back to business as usual then?


My wardrobe needs serious supplementation.   I have observation and tutoring to prepare for and I would like to halt my descent into schlubbiness as quickly as possible.  (Sweatpants and t-shirts are the devil.  They are so comfortable and they just lure you in.) 

I want to really move out of my comfort zone this season so I decided to set myself a few fashion challenges.

Fashion Challenge Number One: Makeup
I love playing with makeup but I rarely wear it.  I have decided that I want to begin working on my face on weekends so I can discover what works best for me and any egregious errors won't matter much.

Fashion Challenge Number Two: Tucking In
I have this irrational fear of tucking in shirts.  I feel like it somehow accentuates my largest part, my belly, and that it looks unattractive.  At the same time, I really like the look of higher waisted skirts and pants and I wonder if I could pull something like that off.

Fashion Challenge Number Three: Tall Boots
First, I discovered on Manolo for the Big Girl that Duo boots is offering free international shipping right now.  I kind of hate that I wasted so much cash on the wedding!  Duo makes fitted shoes, many that accommodate the wider calfed of us.  I want a decent pair of knee boots and maybe even go crazy with some over the knee numbers.

Fashion Challenge Number Four: Dresses, Skirts, and Tights
I pretty much live in pants but I have a growing appreciation for dresses and skirts.  I also love the idea of colorful tights. 

Fashion Challenge Number Five: Accessorizing
I never do this, but I think I should.  I have the notion that this is how you make style really personal.  I need to develop mine.

So these are my fashion challenges for fall.  I'm excited to see how it goes-and also how I'm going to accomplish it on a budget!
