It is with great sadness that I write this post for today is the last day of the social media campaign #IwillwearwhatIlike. If your unaware of this hashtag, click here and it will tell you all about it.
It has been so much fun meeting other women, and seeing what fun and creative photos and comments they came up with while wearing "what they shouldn't wear". I will miss it greatly.
This past week was another fun one. First up, "Booty Shorts". I don't own any booty shorts, did not want to buy any, and I certainly couldn't do a fitting room 'selfie' of my bottom, so I just used this picture of me on Instagram. If you think you've seen it before, it's because you have. I did a fashion post on this outfit HERE.
Day 25 was old sneakers. Now what is wrong with women over the age of thirty wearing old sneakers I wonder? There were some really awesome photographs on Instagram of women wearing old Converse, Keds, and other popular brands. It seemed the older, and more scuffed up the sneakers were, the better they looked. Some brands, especially Converse, just improve with age. Although I own one pair of Converse shoes, they are brand-spankin new looking as I think I've only worn them once. So to meet the challenge, I just picked out an old pair of Sketchers that I use to wear to work.
Day 26 was Cheap Bras. Now this one, I understand. Mature women usually, definitely not always, because it depends on body type and size, need more support than a young gal GENERALLY does (there's always exceptions); and cheap bras normally don't offer that support. HOWEVER, sometimes you can find really amazing deals and price isn't always an indicator of quality. I normally have to spend around $50 for a bra (but of course I wait for a sale or a coupon and end up spending half of that). But on my last vacation my husband and I were shopping at the largest Forever 21 store I have ever seen in my life and they had unbelievably low clearance racks. I think I walked out of that store that day with multiple bags of clothes and didn't even spend $50.00. Anyway, I found these beauties there which cost me less than $5.00 a piece and are not only very pretty, but very supportive and well-constructed too!
Day 27 was Glitter Eyeshadow. I love the eye make up sets "Naked" by Urban Decay. I own two sets, and I am dying to purchase the new "Smokey" set by Naked too, but at $54.00 a set, I have to be patient. These sets have a mix of glittery and flat shadows, but most of them are glittery. I mentioned on Instagram that I don't put glitter shadow all over my eyes, but just in strategic spots to highlight certain areas: like the inner or outer corners. I use the flat shadows in the set for other areas.
Day 28 of the social media campaign was Platform Flip Flops. I bought these years ago, but they are still in great shape. They don't have too much of platform, but enough to qualify!
Edited to add: Catherine just announced on her latest blog post that she will be turning this social media campaign into a weekly series/link-up. Yes! That's great news! You can read all about it HERE.
Have a great day! Amy
