I really enjoyed this challenge, and would encourage anyone to try it. It made me appreciate my closet more, made me realize I have too many clothes, and made me think outside the box a bit. Thanks, Kendi!
That being said, I made several mistakes in my remix challenge. I choose several items poorly. 3 of my dresses, two pairs of shorts, one shirt, and one cardigan were worn only once. Because of this, I feel like it was less of a remix. I should be able to get several uses out of each item. Three wears in a month seems about right. Once? Not even on the remix radar.
There are still several outfits I can make out of my choices, and I think I might go ahead and do that, but I think, overall, I kind of failed at this remix challenge. While I might have done the same concept over and over, I don’t feel like I truly remixed.
I do think I will try again in November, when layering and pants are welcome once again in Texas. When I do try it again, I think I might pick fewer items, go for longer, or make a rule that forces me to wear each item at least 3 times.
Did you learn anything from your remix?
