Six Items Challenge

APRIL 15, 2014
It's the home stretch of the Six Items Challenge!  (*hooray*  *yeah*  *long audience applause*)  We really underestimated how hard the challenge would be!  The last two weeks have been very difficult.  We did prevail as we really wanted to raise money for garment workers.  We raised over $150.00 CAD dollars which will can partially cover the cost of meeting and lobbying companies and government bodies to legislate for better protection for garment workers.  If you are looking for a great book to gain insight into the people that make our clothing, I totally recommend "Where Am I Wearing" by Kelsey Timmerman.  Thanks for all your support!

It is honestly a miracle that we made it through Week 5 of the Six Items Challenge.  This week felt very much like a fast from our fashion fast.  We mostly lounged around in our sportswear and became snippy with the six items in our closet.  In this video, we go to crazy town and begin speaking with our clothing.

Filthy Rebena is two weeks deep into the challenge.  Our bathroom sinks have become the laundry room and we have slight paranoia that people are starting to notice us sporting the same outfits.  (Although, probably no one has really noticed.)  In this weeks video, Darlene does the “Closet Confidential Tag” and ponders whether or not she has a healthy closet.  If you like these videos, be sure to tune in every Tuesday get your update how the Fashion Fast is influencing us.

Well we made it through a week.  Since we packed up our wardrobes, the closet has become a serene spot in the apartment.  For the first time it’s housing books, antiques and accessories. In this video, Darlene shows you how accessories can transform an outfit.  You’d be surprised how a basic outfit can become so many different looks.  If you like these videos, be sure to tune in every Tuesday get your update how the Fashion Fast is influencing us.

Hello y’all and welcome to my Six Items Challenge update page.  I plan on “vlogging” with you every Tuesday to keep you updated on how the Fashion Fast is influencing me.  The challenge begins tomorrow, so I thought it would be swell to film a prequel.  I have been spending the last few days wearing all my favorite brights while I still have time…
