Shop What You Got 2015 – My Edit

Every year Jo from iCurvyWorld hosts Shop What You Got – an online fashion challenge. The idea is you edit your wardrobe down to 30 pieces (including shoes) and only wear those pieces for a month, creating a different outfit each day.

I did it last year and loved the idea of making my clothes work a bit harder as well as coming up with new combinations. Last year I cheated and didn’t include shoes in my total. This year, I am going hardcore and not only including shoes, but I am not even going to declare my Melbourne Cup dress as an exception. I will declare two pairs of dress shoes as exceptions though (a girl has her limits.)

This is my edit…

Shop What You Got 2015

My approach

  • I have tried to keep within a colour scheme (blue, white, black with splashes of pink and red).
  • I have plenty of “base” outfits that can be amped up with accessories (not part of the thirty listed below)
  • I have a few items that can be worn in a few different ways.
  • I have the washing machine at the ready (this was biggest lesson from last year – you will be washing more regularly than normal!)
  • I have kept the bottom half minimal and I will add interest and colour with tops.

The Bottom Half

  1. White shorts
  2. Black shorts
  3. Blue print shorts
  4. White linen pants
