Soooo happy to share a fun little challenge I’ve joined — Get Your Pretty On’s “Build Your Wardrobe Basics” for Women Over 40 (although don’t be deterred if you’re not 40 – several participants are in their 20s and 30s).
These two gals, Alison Lumbatis and Cyndi Spivey, have teamed up together and are styling 21 days of outfits. Alison is the creator of “Get Your Pretty On” and Style Me Pretty Challenges. These challenges are designed to make getting dressed a breeze and are available at a price that anyone can afford. Imagine, no more wandering around the mall not knowing what to buy or staring into your closet trying to find something to wear. You get a capsule wardrobe shopping list and lots of great outfit options to create from it. All of the work is done for you!
This particular challenge has been great so far, and it’s not just about the shopping help! Yes, I did get a shopping list of items to create a great capsule wardrobe of basics: five pants/dresses, four shirts, and four sweaters/jackets plus four pairs of shoes and jewelry/belt/handbag options. Alison and Cyndi sent me not only a shopping list, but links to several shopping options for each item, including plus-sized choices that I need.
The most fun so far, though, has been entry into the private Facebook group where more than 1,000 of us are posting, sharing and supporting each other in this new little style adventure!
We just got our “Day One” assignment and here is my interpretation of it (I need more practice at “selfies” and less fuzziness!):
The official assignment included boot-cut jeans but, since that doesn’t fit into my workplace, I’m subbing black pants and added a red blazer, plus switched leopard flats for the neutral shoes. I’m so excited to have my outfit ready for tomorrow ahead of time!
I’m going to be blogging this challenge along with some other great gals — check out our posts each week!
I’ve had so much so far that I’m thinking joining the “Winter/Holiday Style Challenge” too! The thought of feeling stylish while spending extended time with friends and family is so exciting, plus she’s planned out holiday party outfits too. And it’s being released on Black Friday. Can’t wait!!! Hope you’ll join in the fun.
