As I’ve learned from watching many a makeover tv show, a proper change of wardrobe starts with stripping down to the bare bones. So I started our Six Items Challenge by taking a long hot bath and scrubbing off some embarrassingly tattered nail polish.
Then I went for the simplest outfit I could think of for an afternoon on the wet and slightly cold town (day 1), dropping the kids off at the childminder and a neighbourly visit (day 2) and working from a local cafe (day 3).
I’ve now worn five of my six items. The wedding dress has to wait until I’m a bit more brave.
Next stop is customising and accessorising, with which I will need help. What kind of bag/belt/scarf/shoes/hat/jewellery would you put with my outfits?
