71 Dresses in 71 Days: Week Two!
I started a No Shopping Project last week called 71 Dresses in 71 Days Here. The goal was to wear all 71 of the dresses I own (yes, you read that correctly) in 71 days before I shopped for even so much as a pair of socks for myself.
Since the project began readers have had a lot to say. One reader felt like posting a pretty dress each day was sending the wrong message and I agreed, now I’ll post once a week.
One reader suggested sell half of my dresses on consignment and give the money to a charitable cause (half? But. But. But.)
One reader suggested that I allow readers to pick which dresses I should give to charity.
And one reader ran her own incredible charitable project where she wore the same dress, styled different ways for 100 consecutive days. She earned over $30,000 for orphans. Here’s her video (beware, she’s adorable).
I’m not quite as ambitious as lovely Elaini. Yet. But I’ve decided to post all 14 of the dresses I’ve worn thus far and have you guys select which two dresses I should donate to charity. I’ll be donating to Out Of The Closet that helps fund AHF (Aids Healthcare Foundation). I’ll be donating a total of 10 dresses before the project ends.
But the main thing is I’ll be conquering my shopping addiction. If all goes well I may extend this No Shopping Project to include wearing every remaining article of clothing while continuing to donate.
Below is my gallery of dresses. I’d love it if in your comments you could vote on which dress I could do without. Thanks in advance. xo S
