This is What I Wear

I engaged a week of what Trena calls "stunt dressing". I wore the same skirt every day to see if anyone would notice. I mean, of course, I wore a skirt made from the exact same pattern every day this week. Here they are, left to right, Monday through Friday:
These were all made with the tried-and-true McCall's 2029 A line skirt, version B which is above the knee: I made each of them with a wonderful Hoffman fabric from equilter.com that is 55% cotton and 45% rayon. Monday was southwestern chili pepper day:
Tuesday was tropical drinks day:

Wednesday was surf boards day:

Thursday was vacation/holiday:

And Friday was even more surf boards:

As expected, no one noticed. Although three different folks did say during the week, "You made that skirt, right?" I think everyone knows me so well, they wouldn't be surprised by anything I wore to work. Once you have seen the Crab Dress, you have seen it all.
Parting Shot: My friend Aimee and me. I'm wearing Wednesday's surf board skirt!

Excuse me, but unless you actually left work every day for real people to see you there was absolutely NO CHANCE that someone you work with would notice that you wore the same skirt! Keep in mind that no one in our office has noticed that I have been wearing basiclly the same black knit pants and matching knit jackets for FOUR YEARS! LOL!

I agree. People are self-absorbed they don't notice such things. Cute skirts!

If it was the same pattern each day maybe... Love these skirts. I would make the long one myself with my legs though :-)

So cute, love the skirts!

People around me are either so self-absorbed (oops, maybe that's ME) to notice anything or they are so focused on finding fault in anyone other than themselves they would jump at the chance to say something...
