    Hi Folks, just wanted to throw something out there, not sure if it has already been done, but I came across an article in the New York Times:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/22/fashion/22SIXERS.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2&ref=general&src=me

    which I think was a very interesting challenge.

    That is, to only wear 6 pieces of clothing for a month. Now some of you I know already do this on a regular basis but I thought it was a challenge that I would like to take up and I have put the above url in for you guys to have a squiz at. Let me know what you think. Some work, some of us are at home, some of us do hard yakka that means we get dirty a lot. So I thought we could come up with ideas for cleaning, managing and picking clothes to be successful with this challenge.

    Cheers Tina 😀

    i read an article about a woman who made a brown dress and wore it every day for a year.

    i rather wish i had more than 6 items that would fit my expandingness.

    i have made a real effort to wear overalls when i’m going to do something dirty or rough (pruning roses etc) to avoid trashing other clothes. that has worked quite well and i don’t feel that i need to wash them all the time because they are only for grotty work.

    If I looked as good as the woman in the article in denim shorts and a black tank top I would happily wear them every day ;):lol:
