We just finished Week Four of #IWillWearWhatILike on Instagram. If you have not heard of this social media campaign, check out my original post HERE. It explains what it is all about.
This was the first week where there were a few items on the list I couldn't do because I didn't own them or I was not willing to do them…like Rainbow Hair for example. I spend waaaay too much money on my hair as it is, that I wasn't willing, even for the sake of the cause, to dye my hair odd colors. Some of the ladies put wigs on, but I did not have access to any of those either.
Another one was Abercrombie & Fitch. I do not have any of their clothes, nor do we have any of their stores where I live, so I couldn't even do a fitting room selfie.
But here are the challenges I could do!
Day 15: Maximum Three Colors. Did you know that anyone over thirty should never wear more than three colors at once? Neither did I! So here I am wearing four colors: white, yellow, blue, and pink!
I bought these fur trimmed boots while vacationing in Italy a few years ago. I rarely wear them anymore, but I still hang on to them for memory's sake.
Day 23 was 'American Eagle'. Now I had originally planned on just stopping at the American Eagle store in our town, trying something on, and doing a fitting room selfie. But you know what, when I found these flare jeans (I've been looking for a pair of flares FOREVER!) I actually bought them! They were my first American Eagle purchase ever! I've never been into an American Eagle store before this campaign because I thought it was too expensive or for high schoolers. But I really liked a lot of the items they carried, and the staff at the store was absolutely wonderful! They were so helpful, directing me to what I was looking for, finding sizes, etc. And they never once let me feel or think that I was too old to shop there (I've had those awkward store experiences before). I also found their prices quite comparable, if not cheaper, than a lot of other stores I frequent. I had such a positive experience, I will definitely be visiting again!
And finally, Day 22 was 'Furry Anything'. Older women, can't wear fur? Really? We are known for our fur stoles, fur gloves and hats, fur coats and vests. So of course, I had to be a Prima Donna and break out my old faux chinchilla fur coat! I bought this coat over thirty years ago! I never wear it anymore, but I keep it for a theatre prop. I use to do a lot of acting, and every now and then a role would call for a fur coat, and out this baby came. It has seen a lot of memories, let me tell you!
Have a great day! Amy
