As you know, I have to plan out all my outfits for the week in advance so I can photograph them while the sun is up. This weekend I pulled out each pair of colored tights I was going to be wearing and started building my outfits around them. This week also happens to be the final week of the No Repeats Challenge, and I was beginning to find not repeating a challenge.
The result ended up being day after day of black skirts (and a dress). I saw the five outfits sitting there and thought "Oh no! I can't wear black skirts all week! That would be such a cop-out and everyone would waggle their fingers in disappointment."
I made a few swaps, a few overhauls, and have eliminated most of the black skirts (and the dress). I did think it was pretty interesting, how after a month of not repeating, I still had enough black to wear for a week.
I've now decided on a 2011 rule, No Buying Black Skirts! Clearly I have enough, with the a-line, pencil, mini, tulip, and lace skirts already in my closet.
This swap was black for brown and tan. Maybe it lacks the drama of black, white and red, but everyone has done it, so why not be a little different?
