It seems like it was just yesterday that I sat down and wrote up what I had worn up to week 35. In fact, it seems like it was just yesterday that I sat down at my computer at all, when in fact it has been almost a week since I have even pulled up my Word Press dashboard. Where has this summer been going? Better yet, where has the year gone? It is flying by and I am not even exaggerating! I feel I can barely keep up.
Today I have a few dresses to show for the last four weeks of this wear my closet challenge of mine. I have no idea how many dresses I currently have hanging up in my closet, and I keep telling you all that I am gonna get a dress count ASAP. It just isn’t happening. I know I have several that I won’t wear. I have tried to wear a few, but never make it out of the bathroom with them on. I’d say I have at least five to get rid of, which is good because in the last month I have probably added five more. And here are two of which that I have recently bought. They are a bit of a departure from my regular obsession of fit and flare, cotton dresses.
H&M knit dress that I bought brand new for $12 something. It is very hard for me to pass up a black and white dress at that price!
Another new, store bought dress. This one is from Kohl’s and I got it on Sunday. I love everything about it, even the neck tassels, which kind of surprised me.
Now for the ones I wore that I have made myself. My first ever make of a Simplicity 2444 dress. (Sorry for the headless photo; it was a bad hair day.)
And lastly of what I have worn the last several weeks, my Cotton and Steel typewriter dress. I did take the sleeves off after all and I have to say, it didn’t turn out that bad. (You can see the before look here.)
Dresses 46 – 49 have been worn and will live to see another year. I might be getting close to being half way done. I will never know until I get into that closet of mine and have a recount though. Maybe this is the week it will happen…
Until next time, I hope to be wearing a dress a day, or every other day at the least…
