six items or less founder tamsin davies and her minimalist picks - more photos here
i just read this article on the NY Times about a web/blog challenge called 'six items or less'. i think the idea is absolutely brilliant, as i and many other fashion bloggers have posted about ways in which we try to edit down our wardrobe, cut out impulse shopping, and really try to refine a personal style that transcends seasonal trends.
i am intrigued and really want to do the 'shopping diet' experiment for a month as a conscientious daily regimen to supplement my ongoing closet-editing on laws of general economy. since we have a wonderful community of commenters and fellow bloggers here, i am also very interested in what your thoughts are on this experiment. perhaps we can start a small viral community of '6 items or less' bloggers for a month?
what is 'fashion' to you on a daily basis? what is your current shopping modus operandi? my efforts to scale back and refine my consumption habits and sartorial purchases in the past few years can be characterized as efforts to rationalize what is essentially an irrational desire: the love of beautiful clothing and the thrill of discovering 'the new'. do let me know what you think!
