'I, Bernice, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made item each day for the duration of May 2012'.
As you can see, I'm a little nervous about making this commitment. My biggest hurdle will be that odd morning when I'm in a crazy rush and a RTW item is the easier option i.e. doesn't need an iron, or doesn't go with an item that needs to be ironed. But hey, it's better to slip up on the odd day, then not to give it a go at all, right?
I think the key to my success will be to plan my outfit the night before. My usual style is to pick something to wear minutes before I have to actually leave the house. In fact, I'm superfast at getting ready and generally step into the shower about 10 minutes before I have to leave with three small children in tow. It's usually when I'm in the shower that I decide what I'm going to wear. All I need then is a bit of concealer under my eyes, a touch of lip gloss, a groovy ring or necklace and I'm good to go. I'm pretty sure this system will need a little bit of a shake-up in during May.
Wish me luck!
