what do you think? (day 26)

hey there. i need your help. (er…i mean. good evening to you, too, sweetums!)

i think i can pull off more than 30 outfits with these 11 pieces. what should i do?

a. be done with the 11 pieces after this weekend.

b. finish them out (i’m thinking i can make another 5 or so outfits.)

mainly i want to know if you’re tired of seeing the same 11 pieces over and over (and over) again. i do miss my other clothes, but i’m really digging the fact that such a little number of pieces can create so many unique ensembles!

please (pretty please with strawberries on top) tell me what your thoughts are. and then go and have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious night! (and be amazed that i sounded that out correctly on my first try- or it’s such a ridiculous word that the spell check didn’t catch it. pick your poison.)

    I say, finish it out! You are almost there

    Finish strong baby.

    I looked up Mary Poppins and you did indeed spell the word correctly. Ah, the beauty of phonetic spelling!
    If you’ve got extra outfits, go for it! Maybe you can switch back to your full wardrobe for Independence Day.

      Woo! Yay phonics. I like the Independence Day idea…

    I think it’s great that you are even considering going longer. It’s been inspiring to see you stretch your wardrobe and encourages me to do the same. However, as a daily reader, I’ve lost enthusiasm for reading your blog over the last week or so. While I hardly noticed the first 2 weeks, it’s starting to get repetitive. I am looking forward to the return of the rest of your closet. I am really looking forward to a recap post too!

      Thanks for all of your thoughts, Aubree! I think I’m going to go ahead and do a few extra outfits, but after that, I am welcoming back my whole closet with open arms!

    Finish! Some people don’t even have 11 items in their wardrobe.

  • Linda June 26, 2012 at 9:17 PM

    Keep going! I’m loving that you are doing this!

    Dont stop now when you have made it so far! I say continue and keep playing with the accesories. If I start becoming bored with my clothes, I usually pile on some fun jewelry for new look. Almost always, I like the piece of clothing even more!

    • Caitlin June 30, 2012 at 7:12 AM

      That’s great advice, Rose!

    I say keep going and at least finish out your inspiration! You’ll probably be glad you did. :)

    We live in a world where we say “less is more” but most people live in a “more is more” lifestyle. So, go ahead and show us – less is truly more!

    I say if you can stomach it, keep going for 5 more outfits, and go back to your full wardrobe in July, since it is getting a bit repetitive. Personally I’d love to see a wrap-up of all the outfits you made with these 11 pieces all together. Maybe with numbers so we can more easily see the combinations (like 1+4+7). I know it’s really simple, but I struggle with how to put outfits together, and can use all the help I can get.

    • Caitlin June 30, 2012 at 7:14 AM

      That’s a fantastic idea, Lisa! I will definitely do that. I want to write about remixing in a way that’s helpful, so keep the suggestions coming!

    Go for B. I’m impressed by your unique outfits out of 11 main pieces. You’re in the home stretch YEA!

  • Alexandria June 27, 2012 at 11:45 AM

    Finish out! Yeah!

  • Sharon June 27, 2012 at 3:00 PM

    Go for it, Sweetums! I, for one, would like to see what else your agile mind has come up with. :)

  • Selah June 27, 2012 at 3:25 PM

    You haven’t tied that yellow button down at the waist yet :)

    • Caitlin June 30, 2012 at 7:16 AM

      So true! I almost forgot about it. It’ll definitely be in one of that last 5!

  • Caitlin June 30, 2012 at 7:24 AM

    Thank you for your input! I have decided to go ahead with 5 more outfits. I never would have thought I could squeeze 35 outfits out of out of 11 pieces, but I want to finish out. I think if I didn’t, I would feel like I left things undone. More thoughts on that later, though. Have a great weekend, my dears!
