twentypieces.org is inspiring to me. authors julie and cate pick 20 items of clothing and remix them for an entire year. now that’s hardcore.
a few of my favorite things from their site:
- julie and cate write that their “project isn’t just about clothes, it’s about engendering thoughtful dialogue, introspection, a better way of life, and, hopefully, a growing community of people who are interested in what it might look like to move a little away from our consumeristic mindset towards the way we dress, and in a larger sense, the way we live.” <- gulp
- a reader of theirs did a mini series…20 pieces for 20 days. <- love
- the last of their rules for their challenge is to “Use the project as a way to grow and understand that the hard parts are the ones that are doing the best work in your soul…” <- truth
i think this whole adventure of remixing my closet for a year is going to be a lot bigger than i realized…
