A Week Of Outfits
A few months ago I read this Manrepeller article where founder Leandra documented 30 days worth of outfit selfies. While this sounds like a fairly mundane hobby, doing so actually revealed a lot to her about herself. As she says, it was:
A curious exercise in documentation — forcing yourself to remember things you might want to forget, freezing moments and using clothes as the sentences that tell your story.
And so between that and a very large floor to ceiling mirror in our office ladies bathroom I decided to try out this project myself on Instagram. I don't know if I've necessarily revealed as much about myself as Leandra did but I have noticed I wear jeans a lot more than I used to and dark colors even more than I imagined, especially when I'm sad. Shocking I'm sure, but I've also always been fascinated about what everyday women wear and how they represent themselves through clothing so I guess this is my contribution. I've decided to keep the project going for longer than 30 days and as such I'll be featuring my weeks of outfits here.
