IT’S FASHION FRIDAY!!!
I have a pretty interesting topic up ahead, so let’s whiz through the afternoon eats quickly.
As planned, I enjoyed some Carrot Raisin Manna Bread mid-morning, spread with some PB2. I started off with one piece…but I may have possibly gone back for another.
I had a couple of questions on the nutritional stats of the bread, so here ya go:
A little while later, I enjoyed a wine-glass fruit & yogurt parfait.
A vanilla flavored Chobani mixed with a fresh kiwi & some strawberries. So so good.
On the side, I also had the rest of our leftover green beans, along with some baby carrots + hommus. Twas YUMMY!
Alright – let’s get on with some Fashion Friday, shall we??
There’s a new “diet craze” out there friends, but don’t worry, it doesn’t have anything to do with giving up carbs or solely eating cabbage. In fact, it has nothing to do with food at all, which is why we’re talking about it today on Fashion Friday!
What it does have to do with is what you wear, and it’s called the “Fashion Diet.” The gist is this:
Take any six items from your closet and wear only those six items for 31 days.
I first heard about the idea this morning while watching the news and became quickly intrigued. After doing a little research, I came across the site that started it all: Six Items Or Less. According to the website,
“Starting Monday, June 21st 2010, a group of people from California to Dubai are going to take part in a little experiment: each participant gets to choose six (and only six) items of clothing and pledge to wear only these six items of clothing for a month. They’ll share their experiences here at sixitemsorless.com
“There are exceptions that don’t count towards the six: undergarments, swim wear, work-out clothes, work uniforms, outer jackets (rain slicker, outdoor jacket), shoes and accessories. You can get multiples of the same item for laundry purposes, but different colors count as separate items. Or you can tell us to stuff it and make your own rules.”
As I was watching the segment this morning, I was shocked to hear just how many people were totally unaware of what these people were doing. Even spouses had no clue – I mean, really? I think my hubby would notice an enormous decrease in laundry, wouldn’t you think?
Even still, I find this “Fashion Diet” totally interesting. Without having a full closet of clothes at your disposal, it forces you to really get creative with your outfits. That means playing around with one of my favorite things: Accessories! Belts, broaches, scarves, hats, shoes, & jewelry can all add a little extra “pizazz” to your outfit without a lot of effort.
Plus, on top of everything else, only being able to choose from six pieces most definitely gets rid of a lot of the “guess work” when trying to figure out an outfit. One followers even said that the experiment led them to exercise more, eat better, meditate, and cut back on spending, almost like a ripple effect!
Personally, I think I’d have a really hard time following this “Fashion Diet” because I have so many favorite pieces of clothes, I wouldn’t know what to choose! But on the other hand, I think the challenge would be pretty darn interesting.
Soooooo, I’ll leave ya’ll with TWO Fashion Friday questions for today:
- Do you think YOU could ever follow the “Fashion Diet?”
- If you had to choose 6 pieces to wear for “x” amount of time, what are some that you know you would include?
