I agreed to participate in the SYC Challenge going on this month and have not bought anything new yet. I added so many new items last year, about 45 including gifts, that my closet feels more than sufficient. I know that items will need replacing sometime this year so I will be shopping eventually but for now I am content. Angie's moto post yesterday inspired to try copying one of the outfits so I tried it. It didn't really work for me and I think I need a different black top or maybe black straight leg jeans, which I don't have, to make it work. I had a lunch date with an old friend and she suggested going to a restaurant where we might have to sit outside because of the crowds, so I wanted to dress warmly. So I shopped my closet and found this warm sweater and tried it over the turtleneck and jeans from outfit #1 with several of my toppers. I wore version #4 to lunch. Of course we were seated inside by a sunny window and I wound up taking off layers which wouldn't have been possible if I'd worn the wool sweater without the tneck so all worked out well. The sweater has a strangely wide turtleneck opening so I'm hoping I can shrink it a bit. Have you successfully done this?
