If you’ve been reading a while, you’ve probably already heard about The Challenge from Feelin’ Feminine: Seven Days in a Dress.
As For My House will be hosting the December 2010 edition of The Challenge, beginning next Monday, December 6th. Jewel and I are proud to be your guides for this exciting adventure!
The idea is to wear only skirts/dresses every day for a week. You can mix-and-match outfits, accessorize, and have fun styling your hair.
We hope you will also take a picture of your outfit each day, post it on your blog, and share with the other participants. I will include a “Linky” share with each of my daily posts.
Of course there are no “rules”, as each person is on her own journey, but to honor the spirit of the challenge, and the integrity of readers of both genders, we ask that all outfits posted be a skirt that reaches at least to the knee, and a modest top (nothing sleeveless or with plunging necklines, etc.).
Even if you don’t have a blog, or don’t want to share (or even choose to share just once or twice during the week!), I hope you will take up the challenge. Give it a try, and see just how much – or how little – your attire impacts your life, in a variety of different arenas.
At the end of the week, you may wish to refer to (and perhaps even post and share your answers to!) Feelin’ Feminine’s list of questions for reflection:
- How was the experience for you?
- Any particular stories?
- Did wearing skirts rather than pants affect the way you felt?
- The way you felt about yourself?
- The way you acted?
- The way you carried yourself?
- Were you able to go about everyday activity as freely as pants?
- How did people respond?
- After the challenge do you desire to keep wearing skirts more regularly, or were you desperate to wear pants again?
To honor everyone’s Sabbath, we will have the post-intensive beginning and end of The Challenge on Mondays. Since we have readers in both camps, and this is definitely My Father’s Business, I will continue to post our outfits and a Linky on both Saturday and Sunday next week.
So, how about it? Will you join us? See what it’s like, and how it feels and works for you?
