Help me get dressed – an interactive project

dress me challenge

A topic that comes up again and again in my posts is how interaction is the lifeblood of the blogging community. So I’ve come up with this post to make by blog more interactive, we’ll see if it’ll work or not! Anyway…

What it is is that I want you to help me get dressed. The advantage of being a wardrobe remixer and a fashion blogger is that I have a photographic record of almost all the clothes I own for everyone to see, so it is possible for you guys to have a look at what I have and come up with new ways of mixing and matching. And that’s exactly what I’d like you to do, if you’re so inclined – put together an outfit for me.

If you’re in, you can have a look at my wardrobe remix set here. In case you don’t want to look through the 360 odd photos, I’ve picked out some items that I think are mix and matcheable to get you going (although please don’t feel constrained by that). I’ve also tried to reflect the spirit of them visually in the polyvore set at the top of the post. So:

1. this white dress
2. this black tunic
3. this pussy bow shirt
4. this red blouse
5. this blue skirt
6. these turn up jeans
7. this grey dress
8. these green cords
9. this dress/tunic
10. this yellow cardie
11. this stripy shirt dress

I also have:
* long sleeved tees in: red, yellow, blue, green, purple and black
* tight in red, yellow, blue, green, purple, orange, grey and black
* scarves in just about any colour you can think of
* tank tops in purple, pink, blue, olive green, light green and black.

I really hope this works and I promise to make every effort to wear whatever people come up with. Be as daring or as classic as you like – I’m in the market for both work and play outfits! And if you’d like to do the same for yourself, let me know, and I’ll be happy to put together outfits for other people.

Have fun!

Oh, and in the interests of full disclosure, I stole this idea from the ‘dress another remixer‘ thread on wardrobe remix back in 2007. Wow, time flies!

    Hey! This looks really cool, I will have to check it out on another computer though, my work one is having issues. šŸ™

    I'll play! I remember that wardrobe_remix thread and I had wondered recently (to myself) if anybody would be interested doing it again.

    Here are a mix I picked out. I'm okay if you need to sub out things, hopefully you still have the skirt:
    these red chucks
    these teal tights
    this skirt
    this top (or the yellow/orange one from the tights photo)
    this vest
    this necklace

    I'm in a "getting dressed" rut, so if you'd want to pick something out for me I'm game too. my set Thanks!

  • What Would a Nerd Wear 9 March 2010, 11:20 pm

    what a sweet idea!
    how about the white dress with the red blouse layered and belted over it with some brown shoes??
    i think red and white are so crisp together.

    Hmmmm this is indeed interesting !
    You have given me an idea for a cape I bought LAST YEAR and have not gotten to wearing… I honestly do not know what to do with it !
    Maybe fellow bloggers can help… šŸ™‚
