It’s Day 16 of my Six Items or Less challenge, and I’m currently LIVE BLOGGING from my apartment in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. What you see here, my friends, is my look from yesterday — the Crystal Castles look — the exact halfway point between the beginning and the end of my decision to wear six and ONLY six items of clothing for the month of September.
I know that you — not unlike the countless millions of other Acorn Archive readers — have probably been wondering how its writer has been holding up. You’ve probably been sitting there at your respective office desk, kitchen sink or steering wheel, unable to concentrate on the more urgent tasks at hand, silently asking questions like, “Which two, exactly, of her six items is she going to pair today? Is she going to buck her pants-only regimen and finally introduce the much-awaited skirt into the mix? Or is she going to blow all of our minds and find a way to wear not only two pieces a day but, I dare say, three?”
Well, to answer all of the above questions in one fell swoop: It’s super boring. I’m doing little to no laundry; it takes about five minutes to get ready every day; no, I’m NOT ready to shave my legs and therefore have NOT worn the skirt yet; and the only thing I’m convinced of is my need to embrace accessories like jewelry. Jewels in my crown, y’all. You know what I’m sayin’?
