Regret and Silver Boots.
A: The new way to wear a tee apparently involves wearing it with clothes.
M: Crap, all along I've been using them as grocery bags???!
A: Well, you're TOTALLY wrong. You're supposed to wear them with pants??
M: SIRI HOW DO I CLOTHES
A: Does Siri wear clothes? Related: Got this t-shirt wrapped around one leg. #fashion
M: I keep thinking about your micro wardrobe problem and want to help.
A: PLEASE HELP ME.
A: Seriously, though. I want to do this without buying a bunch of stuff and I also have to be work-appropriate. I do wear my black coated jeans to work (which I shouldn't) but regular jeans only on Fridays.
M: Oh I don't really have ways to help but I don't think a wrap dress is going to help you unless you turn into someone who would wear a wrap dress as a duster and that does not seem like you. Same with layering over a turtleneck.
A: I don't own a turtleneck, so.
M: See? I'm not helpful.
A: My wardrobe is not cut out for this.
M: You don't like turtlenecks, right? They are nice for layering. I don't know. I liked the culottes so don't listen to me.
A: I don't like having my neck constricted. I'll admit the culottes are growing on me but I'm not sure it's a look I could personally pull off?
M: Oh it would be a disaster on me, full stop.
A: My main thing is, I don't want to change my style to do this challenge but I've also got some glaring holes in my wardrobe. It's dumb, really.
M: Yeah it's tough for sure. I think I could do it but that's only because I wear the same shit all the time.
A: I do too! Most of what I picked so far is stuff I wear all the time it's just not very mix-and-match.
M: Clearly you need culottes and silver boots. I mean I just looked at her outfits again and I'm mad that she makes it look so easy with such unique choices. But I do like the idea of it pushing you to wear stuff you don't wear as much. IDK. it's hard.
A: I know, I was thinking maybe it would force me to wear stuff I've been neglecting (like one of my two remaining skirts) but that seems like a different challenge. This is so much harder than I thought it would be! And I still really want those silver boots. Imma find them.
A: God dammit.
M: Well that's not helping anything.
A: If I had silver ankle boots I could just wear a sack and nobody would notice.
M: Ooh shiny.
A: Ugh, those are beautiful! I wish the heel was an inch shorter.
M: HERE ARE ALL THE CHEAP SHINY BOOTS HERE!
M: Okay back to your list. A denim shirt? Maybe that color blocked Boden dress? You could wear a sweater over it...god I don't know. Sorry I just gave right up.
A: I am mad at that dress right now. And my Everlane sweaters are so slouchy they look like hot shit with any kind of skirt.
A: SIRI HOW DO I CLOTHES.
M: This is stupid.
A: Well, I can't wear a sheer blouse with distressed jeans or an off the shoulder top with half a dress to work. Or at all. I also don't look like a moddle.
M: Oh I mean the whole idea. It's just torturing yourself.
Note: I still plan on doing this but it might be a while.
