Whatcha Think?

OK, so I'm lovin' the comments from yesterday's post and am thinking about doing one of those carnival thingys, where you get people to participate by linking up.


Well, first of all, I have to figure out how to do it, because seriously, I have no idea.

Second, I have to get Beau to try and create some little cute button thing that people can click on and it takes them here.

Third, well actually, ... this should be first ... see if anyone would even want to participate.

So, here's the idea, related to yesterday's post ... Dare to Wear. Basically, what are you afraid to wear because you either think it's too young for you or too daring or out of character for you?

 You get several weeks to find something new for your closet, whether it be leggings (like me) or shiny red pumps (which I own) or giant sparkly hoop earrings (also own). Then, when the date arrives you post a picture of yourself with the item on and write about your purchase and how you feel about it, link up here, and post a link for others to come on over.

Whatcha think? Would you want to do it? At least twenty people would be a good start. Come on ... you know you want to.

hmmmmmmmmm...very interestING.

Not sure if I'm interestED.

Only because...it is really HARD for me to step out of my "comfort" zone where fashion is concerned.

Maybe if someone coaxed me along...and helped me choose the right item.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Still thinkin'. It's really early ya know?

I'd "link up" Mama Belle! Sounds like a great time to me!

sara said...

I'm in! This is something that I am constantly asking my husband when I buy something new...and I tell him "if I ever look too old for what I'm wearing, do NOT let me leave the house!!!" This will be fun!

Sounds like a fun time!

beeeeeeeee said...

count me in! I'm afraid of highlights and ballet flats and a myriad of other fashion items so this would be good for me!

Carlie Faulk said...

I know how to do the linky thingy if you need help :)

Sarah@Life in the Parsonage said...

I'm in. I needed a good excuse to get my nose pierced ;)

Julie @ blessedwithfive said...

Sarah cracks me up!!! Nose pierced! hahaha

I think I am a bit too out of my comfort zone for this challenge! I think I will sit back and watch the fun on this one!

Good Luck~

I could do it. I actually got my first pair of heels in 10 years. I stopped wearing them when we got A.

Tracie said...

ooooh...Sarah has a grand idea. I would defeinitely do the nose piercing.

OK...I guess I'm in.

Sara@ Butterville said...

This sounds fun. Really. But I have NO idea what I'd buy. I did own leather pants once. THAT was a mistake. Remember Ross, on Friends, with his leather pants...yeah that...

Rachel said...

This does sound fun! I'm kinda chicken, though. I'd have to break out of my comfort zone to do this. :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Hey I have plenty that I have already bought that would be perfect...count me in! :)

And the Blueberry muffin and juice was a perfect morning start with the StarBucks card I won! :)

Huse Yo Mama said...

I'm SO IN!!! My post wouldn't be as great as yours, because I'll be in the midst of moving, but I'm game!

Tami said...

I AM IN!1 I Can't wait. I already know what I'm going to wear.

Andrea @ Mommy Snacks said...

I'm still recovering from what the young/skinny fitting room attendant (that I referred to in the previous post) said - or didn't say - to me to do this one!

Plus, I don't think the www is ready for this "jelly!" channeling Beyonce on this one :-)

I will watch and encourage though!
