More about Outfit August

Hello sweet peas!

I wasn't expecting this much interest, so thank you everyone who wants to be involved.

As I said before, I've been thinking about doing a similar thing to Fatshion February (where I blogged an outfit every day for a month, mostly from items I already had) but in August, as it gives us time to prepare. I feel happiest when my outfits are a mix of new and old items. When I buy too many new things it actually puts me off blogging my outfits out of guilt/shame. I'm happiest when I'm being resourceful, and that means digging deep into my stashes for pretties and deep into my mind working out combinations of things I may not have blogged about before. There's so much that can be done to turn one dress into several different outfits using hats, hair flowers, bags, shoes, scarves, cardigans etc etc (as I proved when I wore the same dress for 14 outfits as part of Fatshion February.)

I'm as guilty as anyone of being a sucker for shiny new things all the time. The hope is that in concentrating more on the stuff we already have for just one month we'll be less tempted by new possessions. Hopefully. :)

  • You don't have to blog every day. Join in when you can.
  • You don't have to avoid new stuff entirely.
  • You don't have to be fat. All bodies welcome.

All I ask is on August 1st you write an introductory post with the header and linking to the other participants. (I'm going to add the links to this post as people join and keep updating.) After that, just join in as and when you can throughout the month.

I will blog a reminder post in a few weeks. I have loads of ideas which I'll talk about later on too. This post today is mainly to see who's interested.

So far we have:

Vicky G
Sarah D

If you want to take part in August give me a yell in the comments and I'll add you. 

Any questions?

Feel free to yoink the header direct from my blog now if you want, or else I'll have a grab code box when I post the reminder post in a few weeks.

Thanks for reading!
