"Why Don't You?" Wednesday

Taking a page from the legend Diana Vreeland's "Why Don't You?" column from Bazaar, it's time for a "Why Don't You?" Wednesday! Here are twenty things I think you should seriously consider doing.

Why Don’t You…
...try one of the fall fashion trends?
...try one of the fall make-up trends?
...create a fashion bucket list - things you wish to buy before you die?
...create a style board? Go through magazines and clip out anything that inspires you stylewise - it doesn't have to be clothing or accessories. Then make a collage on a bulletin board with your findings.
...try on a style that you never thought would look good on you? Who knows? It might look great!
...try on a colour you never thought would look good on you?
...learn to shop on eBay? This is my go to place for one-of-a-kind finds and great deals without having to leave my house.
...get friends together for a clothing/accessory swap? With the recession, this is a great way to get new-to-you stuff without paying a dime.
...do some fall closet cleaning/organizing and donate your clothes to charity?
...feed your dog some bacon? Zeke - get off my computer!! Your article isn't until tomorrow!
...get a makeover? Enlist the help of a friend or head to your nearest cosmetics counter for a free makeover.
...try a new hairstyle? Head to your library and check out the hairstyle magazines, or hit the internet and see what the stars are doing, then go to your trusted hairdresser.
...try a new haircolour? Do blondes have more fun? Are redheads truly spicy? Find out by changing your colour. If you don't like it, you can always go back to your original colour.
...take your clothes that don't fit properly to a tailor? Nothing cheapens an outfit faster than clothes that do not fit.
...try on a pair of shoes you would never buy? If you mostly buy heels - try on flats and vice versa.
...buy a statement necklace? Chunky necklaces are in right now.
...put together a bunch of outfits (including accessories), take photos of them and display the photos on the back of your closet door? Thes can be your go-to outfits when you are having a "I don't have anything to wear" day.
...wear red lipstick? EVERYONE can wear red lipstick. You just need to find the shade that is right for you.
...go shopping with a friend who has a different style than you and buy something she suggests?
...check out a thrift shop? I have found great stuff at Value Village, Goodwill, Salvation Army Thrift Store, etc.
...check out a consignment store? Designer ones are a great place to get that piece for your wardrobe that you could never afford brand new.

 Let me know what you do and how it works out for you!
