Sadistic Dressember Goals

Maybe I'm a sadist but I thought having some additional goals for Dressember might spice it up a bit. You know, besides wearing a dress for 31 days. These goals read like a laundry list of closet orphans and DIY projects. (Because that's what they are.)

Henceforth, for the month of Dressember, I challenge myself to:

1) Wear lace collar I bought 50 billion years ago (still unworn)
2) DIY a bleached black t-shirt dress
3) Wear gray Hearts of Darkness Charisma boots
4) Make myself find a space in my new apartment where I can take outfit pictures
5) Purge the dresses I just do. not. wear.
6) Wear embroidered bow tie & black tie

7) Figure out how to layer dresses so they can be worn more than 1 way

#6 is selfish. I told myself I couldn't buy any more of With Care's ties until I wore the ones I'd just purchased. But look how cute they are! Handmade. In the North America.

  1. Yay for Dressemberers! I'm challenging myself to purge the hell out of my closet also. Layering dresses is KEY for me too, I usually end up thrifting a few basic LLBean style dresses to wear as under layers around this time of year. And is your bleached black t-shirt DIY like artfully brushing / splattering bleach on a black t-shirt dress? Because I have a black dress I've been wanting to do that too for a long time, thanks for reminding me!

    Hopefully I'll master the layering. One day.

  5. @ Nichole - just a "tie-dyed" or contrast bleached dress (using something like this - http://www.flickr.com/photos/jessecoug/6218387748/)
