For the final day of our challenge, the Southerner’s choice of outfit was inspired by the street performers or buskers on Cuba St. in Wellington, while Stahay attended a high school graduation in her outfit.
I asked Stahay to contribute her thoughts on participating in the challenge since I contributed mine on Day 1. Here they are:
“This was a great challenge for us. I had definitely gotten into a funk with my clothes. I had a few select outfits I would wear over and over. Jorge would always say things like, ‘you´re not wearing that, are you’ or ‘you have so many things that you don´t wear.’ I was really happy to give him the opportunity to show me some new options. Each outfit he chose was quite a process…’try this shirt, how about this one, no that doesn´t work, where are your belts…’ On day 4 he went through every single item in every closet in the house and had me try on at least 7 outfits before choosing the right one. I did like all of the outfits he picked, but was a little uncomfortable wearing the sleeveless shirt to school on Day 2. My favorite and something I would have never put together was Day 1. I have not tucked in t-shirts since I was a kid, but now I think it is something I will try again. It was so much fun to have a project. I am ready for another!”
