Fashion "Diet"?: Six Pieces of Clothing for a Month?!

So I was doing my rounds online when I saw this post: Shoppers on a ‘Diet’ Tame the Urge to Buy. It was pretty much a challenge to only wear SIX items of clothing (not including shoes, accessories, or underwear) for 31 days.

My reaction was: WHAAAAAAAAAT?!?! O____O

Six items of clothing might only last me a week or two which and even that's a stretch. But the more I thought about it, what a challenge will it be to your creativity to mix and match six items to last you a whole month with your kajillion shoes and accessories.

I love clothes too much. If I were to do the challenge, I'm not sure which ones will be my six items. Sure it might be easier for guys to do this since I hardly notice what guys wear, but girls check other girls out (don't lie). But imagine the payoff... more money in your pocket that can go to something else. And it does kinda help you put your shopping into perspective. How much of the clothes in your closet do you really wear? But then again, a hobby is a hobby.

QUESTION: Based on your lifestyle, is this challenge doable for you? Would you do the challenge? If so, what will be your six items? I'd like to hear your answers in the comment section.


  1. hi! Its a very interesting post and challenge. But as much as I want to do it, I dont think I can. 6 clothes for 31days?!? hehehe i think this is gona be really really hard. I would def include a pair of jeans, for the remaining 5, I have no idea. :)

    looking forward to interesting comments. :)


  2. Wow that's crazy. I don't think I could ever limit myself to only 6 items. I would just try not to shop and only use what I already have, hehe.

  3. Six items in 31 days? That would be a real stretch. Did anyone make it through the 31st day?
