Do Or Do Not

Yoda - Do Or Do Not...

“Do or do not…there is no try.”

Warning:  The following is a clothing experiment that requires more than an, “I’ll try.”
The only way to fully grasp the freedom of the “Six Items or Less” challenge is to DO it.
Or do not.

“What do our clothes say about us?

Why do spend so much time on what we wear?

What happens when we don’t?
From the website, “Six Items or Less”

“Six Items or Less began as a small experiment between friends and quickly grew to become a global movement questioning the power of what we don’t wear.

The scope of the Six Items project expanded rapidly around the world, exposing individuals and even entire families to explore a life with less. The community now acts as a participant-driven platform that features discussions on everything from fashion to financials to personal feelings and development.

The experiment is simple: each participant gets to choose six (and only six) items of clothing and pledge to wear only these six items of clothing for a month.

Logistically, there are exceptions that don’t count towards the six: undergarments, swim wear, work-out clothes, work uniforms, outer wear (rain slicker, outdoor jacket), shoes and accessories. You can get multiples of the same item for laundry purposes, but different colors count as separate items.

Most people have asked about the reasoning behind the experiment and most also assume it’s a grand statement about consumerism. In reality, there is no dictated driving thought–it’s for you to decide its meaning and relativity in your world. It’s about putting a challenge out there and seeing what people bring to it, do with it and talk about.” 

Six items for 30 days.  
It will change the way you think about your clothes.    
There is no, “try.”
