I imagine Julia will be around soon with her Day Six outfit. Talk very soon for now lovelies!
Hi Rhitbee Readers! As Robyn has written above, this is going to be a 30 day challenge and collaboration between two friends. Now, you’ve gotten to know Robyn pretty well over the past little while, but who am I and what are my connections to Robyn, this particular challenge, and even to fashion itself? Good questions, readers, good questions.
My name’s Julia and me and Robyn, we go way back. At this point, she’s my fam. I thought of this project recently while looking through my closet on a rather routine cleaning day. During my bout of sweater folding I had a passing thought: “Man, I have a lot of shit, I bet I could go a whole month without repeating a single article in here if I tried.” As I considered it in greater detail, I realized that there could be more to my passing thought. It could be used as a launching pad for a much bigger creative and political statement: “Let’s use our imaginations instead of our wallets to express ourselves through fashion!”
When this idea came to mind, so did Robyn as the person to visually explore it with. Besides the obvious factor of her already having an established fashion blog, she also has a different personal style than I do and would interpret the challenge in a totally interesting and unique way. Lastly, she’s just super fun to talk clothes with! If I had to sum up our styles, I would say Robyn’s is about flowers, lace and those pointy oxfords she always wears, where as I’m for loud colours, raw denim and sneakers. It’s going to be an interesting month.
Anyways, that’s my spiel, but I hope you guys will stick around to see where this project takes us and maybe even participate in it yourselves. I’m stoked for this challenge, and look forward to seeing what outfits Robyn and I come up with! Hope you like it and happy blogging!
