I’m not a very fashionable girl. Never have been. I’d rather buy the latest gadget, or a new pair of skiis, then purchase an expensive purse or outfit. Unfortunately for me, that means I always usually look like crap because I don’t really care what I wear. And because I’ve basically spent the last 3.5 years of my life either pregnant or recovering from pregnancy, I have a closet full of clothes I don’t wear anymore.
Enter ClosetGroupie. It’s a startup that’s in my program this summer (Techstars! Woo hoo!). Founder Kelly James is a really smart, strong woman who’s convinced that there are hordes of women, like me, out there who don’t wear 80% of the clothes in their closets.
So in an effort to a) improve the way I look, b) support ClosetGroupie and c) get rid of stuff from my closet, I’m introducing “Fashion Fridays”. It’s the one day a week I’ll wear something from my closet that I haven’t worn in forever – the goal being to wear EVERYTHING in my closet (ball gowns included, only exception will be my wedding dress). I’m hoping you’ll help me get rid of stuff by telling me “that looks bad Nicole, get rid of it!”! If the consensus is I should get rid of it, I’ll sell it on ClosetGroupie.
So I’m asking you to join me! First of all, join in the Fashion Fridays fun. Wear something on Fridays that you haven’t worn in a really long time, and ask people if you should keep it or get rid of it. If you get rid of it, sell it on ClosetGroupie (and give Kelly some feedback in the process so she can improve her company). Also – just vote! Tell me if I should keep it or toss it.
Here’s week 1’s outfit! What do you think? Keep or toss? (looking for honesty here!)
