Wardrobe Wear Out // Week One

It has been a week since I told you all about my newest closet inspired, clothing challenge, but it hasn’t been a week since I came up with the idea.  I actually thought this little thing up and wrote my post about it a week before I published it.  Part of the reason for this is so that I will always be a week ahead of myself, thus giving me the needed time to get my photos off of the camera and up here onto the computer.  Great idea, right?  I’ve done weekly round-up, outfit posts before and it is a big help to be a week ahead, let me tell you.

With that little bit of info out of the way, here’s what I wore the first week of my self-imposed outfit challenge.  But wait, maybe you all want to know my starting stats… 111 dresses!  Clearly I never had a shoe problem, it’s always been a dress problem.  I would have never guessed that was the number that I had in that half of the closet that is mine.  Well, it seems that I am going to have to wear about two dresses a week for this to be evenly spaced out, but the good news is, I already wear dresses pretty regularly.  Those that I don’t really like are gonna end up showing themselves pretty quickly.  Hey, I might even have this challenge finished early.  I might, but it is still way to early to know for sure.

Okay, back to week one.  From Sunday the 11th to Saturday the 17th of October, here is what I wore:

#ErikaWearsHerCloset
1/111  dress – Apt 9
#ErikaWearsHerCloset
2/111  dress – Apt 9
3/111 Made By Me
3/111 dress – Made By Me

My goal for the first week was to wear two dresses; already I am making good progress.  This little challenge of mine may be easier than I was thinking it would be.  Really, the challenge is gonna be getting good photos, as is usually the case for me.  Or, making the photos that I do take look a little better than they end up.  I am realizing that my new red deck reflects nicely off of my face, giving me a redder than usual hue.

Three down, and only 108 left to go.  I will say it again, I love a good clothing challenge!

PS – I am going to work on getting some better pictures, but be warned in advance, some will have to be iPhone photos.

Until next time, tell me what you think about cleaning out your wardrobes: do you enjoy it or is is a great big chore?  I go back and forth between the two.

  1. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.

  2. Wow! That is a lot of dresses, quite a challenge. Good luck, can’t wait to see the rest of the posts.

    1. Thanks! These kinds of challenges are a little on the fun side as well. I enjoy finding different ways to wear the same old things.

  3. Great idea to use up some clothes – i have stuff thats been sitting in my wardrobes for years that i can’t get rid of!

    I look forward to the rest of the posts :0)

    1. I am hoping this is just what I need to realize what it is I don’t, and won’t wear. It is kind of hard to get rid of clothes though, I know the feeling. 🙂

  4. I look forward to seeing all the dresses! These look great! I think I struggle with dresses the most in winter, how to dress warmly and still feel pretty with them. -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    1. I am happy to hear that you are looking forward to them, Marci! Thank you. I love a nice pair of warm tights for the winter time. I recently came across fleece lined tights, they are perfect for cold days when wearing a dress.

Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
