wunder under challenge: day 31 with my pants
posted: January 31, 2010
Day 31 learnings:
1. lululemon makes amazing black stretchy pants.
Both pairs of my Wunder Unders have stood up to this challenge beautifully. They weren’t brand new to begin with but they haven’t “aged” either. The color did not fade, the fabric did not stretch out and there has been minimal pilling from abrasion.
2. It IS possible to re-purpose.
Prior to this challenge, much of my closet was “categorized”. I would only wear certain pieces for work, play, dressy events, and to work out in. I’ve started to look at all my clothes differently. Something that I would only have pulled out for “dressy” occasions are starting to see the light of day (Examples: Day 1, Day 15, Day 25) and lululemon pieces that only saw the inside of my gym bag are going with me to work and play (Day 12, Day 14, Day 19).
3. I’m already wearing my yoga/run/work out clothes. I have NO excuse not to get my yoga/run/sweat on
The response I received from this challenge has been overwhelming. To every friend, co-worker, and guest who took the time to have a conversation with me, provide encouragement and support, comment on a post, share their day with me by checking into the blog or ask me how I was doing (I loved the concern fellow co-workers expressed over my hygiene), you are WUNDERful. Your words have added more fuel to my fire at reaching my personal goals in fashion and styling.
I would like to personally thank Alana, Shawna, and Ron for making this all happen EVERY DAY.
Thank you to lululemon Briar Hill for sharing your tweets with me.
Note: Do try this at home. No Wunder Unders were hurt during the course of this challenge.
