Forewarned is forearmed, so consider this your notice: Shop What You Got will be happening for a third year in a row this November!
Inspired by many other similar challenges before it, the Shop What You Got Challenge is about creating a capsule wardrobe of just 30 items and wearing only those clothes for the month of November. That’s right, 30 items to style and re-style for 30 days. It’s all about your ability to use a few items to create many many outfits – and each year never fails to remind me about the versatility of my existing collection.
I choose not to shop for new clothes over the month as an added challenge – hence the name ‘Shop What You Got’. Sometimes I forget when I’m on the hunt for the perfect outfit that it may already be hanging in my closet! It’s also a nice little money saver in the lead up to Christmas, and inevitably leads to a closet-clear-out for summer.
Thinking about joining me this year?
The rules are pretty simple:
- Choose 30 items of clothing. Shoes are included. Underwear is not.
- Wear different combinations of those items as your main outfit each day for the month of November.
