I also had feedback from one of my favorite bloggers, Melissa at Peanut Butter in my Hair. Melissa and I both read and reviewed the book Didn't I Feed You Yesterday by Laura Bennett (of Project Runway fame!) last spring. One of the chapters in Laura's book discusses how style is "about making a conscious decision to present yourself in a particular manner." I was fascinated by the fact that even as a mom of six children, she makes it a point to dress up every single day.
Melissa and I were both struck by this particular point in her book, hence Melissa's feedback on my Dress Like a Girl challenge to myself. After several emails back and forth, Melissa and I decided to launch a monthly Dress Like a Girl challenge to our blog readers. Here's how it works:
- One day during the month, on a day that you would normally wear your "mom-iform" make a conscious decision to wear a dress and accessorize it accordingly.
- Take note of any comments you hear, how it affects your day and any other effects of wearing something out of the norm for you.
- Blog about it, grab our Dress Like A Girl button, and then come back here (or Melissa's) on the first Monday of the month to link up your post. There will also be a facebook page and a flickr album to upload pretty pictures of yourself!
- Each month we are going to have different ways to challenge you to dress with some style and hopefully we'll have a few giveaways along the way!
