Day 9

Happy (Jewish) New Year!

Okay, so in these pictures my hair is still wet because I’m in a bit of a rush this morning. Please excuse the mess! I’ve been into blowing my hair out a’la Tami Taylor lately (Friday Night Lights) which takes a minute but I assure you it will look much better. It’s bit brisk this morning and I’m going to be out all day on this job thingy and then I have to go to Long Island to bring in the Jewish new year with my family. I thought the button down shirt underneath the dress looked pretty smart. Not sure what shoes to go with yet. To be honest, I’m not really wanting to wear the dress today. It feels bulky. Judi is trying to work it out in a new material but in the meantime I’m still wearing this thick-ass denim that is starting to feel like a burlap sack. I don’t want this to deter you from loving the dress, because it is awesome. But you know, every day in this material… I’d be lying if I said that every day I did it with a huge smile. When you order the dress for yourself I think it will be in the other material. Okay, I have to run to Duane Reade and then Kinkos and then work and then Long Island. Talk later. xox

Before silly people start harassing just because they can- I shall say that I think that you (and the other Pilot’s and UP in general) and what you are doing is wonderful. I especially appreciate your honesty. It isn’t easy- and that is why none of us are doing it!
Have a lovely day today. You look wonderful- I quite like the Chucks. They seem quite you.
With love from New Zealand.

Oh man I wish I was wearing that! And when you look so good you need to be comfy, so I hope your comfortable version arrives soon. I hope you went with the sneakers. Love the look! Happy new year!

I usually love cons but with this outfit and for a job thingy I think the brown shoes are the better choice.
I also think it’s brave of you to share how uncomfortable you feel in the dress sometimes. I’d feel the same way and I don’t think I’d have enough ideas to reinvent the same dress every day just for 1 week. And I think you’re doing a great job. So be proud and have faith in yourself. 🙂

The sneakers are nice with the dress. Also, I would pair it with knee-high (violet?) socks and some black brogues.
Hope youl’ll get soon the more comfy version of the dress, because it’s very versatile!
Happy New Year !

I love your honesty about this whole project. For my part I have sworn off buying any new clothes for a year and I am beginning to hate my choices. It must be so hard to know you are wearing the same thing everyday. Keep on trucking!

I wouldn’t have predicted that a button-down would look so nice under the dress but it looks great. I love the shoe pic you posted – that’s me just about every morning. Only I wake my partner up to ask which she thinks I should wear. 🙂

I appreciate your candor and your honesty. I think this challenge proves how difficult it is to reinvent the same article of clothing everyday and the fact that you have taken this on is very brave. Keep it up, you’re doing great! 😉

Brown shoes, def. I love how in certain photos (the seated shot today, or the seated shot in the coral dress) you look like you’re posing for a classical portrait.

I enjoy looking at your daily variations of the LBD, though your written posts are getting negative by the day

No, I don’t think those comments are negative. They’re honest. I like that you wear the dress candidly. Not only are you doing the UP experiment, you’re truly taking the dress for a test drive. Good to tweak.
