I know that literally no one is still thinking about MMM ’13 at this point. But, while everyone else was doing their wrap-up posts, I was having several sorts of breakdowns. So, here I am a month late and all the better for it.
Lessons that MMM ’13 Taught Me:
- Separates. For the love of all that is chocolate, I have got to make some separates. Knits, in particular.
- Basics. I need more basics. Like, a nice white button-down shirt. Clean and crisp and perfect for all seasons. Also, I have NO skirts that I want to wear. And since I am a girl who prefers skirts over pants, this is sort of a problem. Also, why do I not own a regular white t-shirt? I do not own a regular white t-shirt. This is absolute madness.
***Friends, what’s a good knit for a white t-shirt? I want something that I don’t have to layer anything under. I want it to be fitted enough that I can tuck it in. Your thoughts and opinions on this matter are oh-so-greatly appreciated!
- I can always use more simple dresses. The crazy florals are great and all, but sometimes I just want a basic, clean-lined dress.
None of these are revelations. They’re all things I already knew. And increasing the knit quotient of my wardrobe is not something I need to finish my sloper for–so, theoretically, I could go ahead and get cracking on that.
I tried to experiment a lot with MMM. There were several outfits that I had never worn before–and several that I will never wear again. I found a few pieces that need some refashioning and some that just need a new home.
I’d say altogether it was a challenging but successful endeavor.
