7x7 Remix coming your way!



That's right, folks!  I'm teaming up with Natalia from Ma Nouvelle Mode and a few other bloggers to do a 7x7 remix, and we want YOU to do it with us!

With the 7x7 challenge we are all going to choose 7 items (including shoes!!) and create 7 different outfits with them.  The ones shown above are NOT the ones for my remix, so you'll have to wait to see mine.

The crew of bloggers that Natalia has corralled will all post our remixes on June 12th for you to see.  BUT since I've been talking about wanting to host a link up for sooooo long I thought this would be a great opportunity to have you all participate and link up too!

One thing that is loud and clear from you guys is that you love seeing a piece worn several different ways.  The linkup will also give you all access to seeing lots of other people's remixes.  Whoop whoop!

Here's what to do:

  • Get your 7 pieces (remember, shoes count!) and get a-remixin'!  Create 7 outfits from those pieces.
  • Write a post showing us your 7 items and your 7 outfits.  Kinda like this one.
  • We'll provide a button for you to link back to here.  (Look out for it later this week.)
  • Be ready to link up on June 12th!

NOTE: Since I'm not the mastermind behind this challenge (that credit goes to Natalia) I don't know if you'll be able to link with Go Chic or Go Home like I've mentioned in the past.  However if you try it on June 12th and it doesn't work, feel free to leave a GCOGH link in the comments on June 12th.  I'll totally check out your remix!

  2. I love this idea and intend to do a remix myself! However, I'm kind of scared of choosing pieces that can't be remixed well :p Do you have any tips? How does one choose pieces to make sure they can be mixed into different outfits?

  3. The 7 x 7 idea sounds really fun! What do we need to do to participate in the link up?

  4. I love 7x7. I did a 30 in 30 in January and it was a lot of fun. I hope to get some inspiration from you for my road trip. Make packing a bit easier and lighter.

    I've got a great giveaway on my blog today: Sephora Gift Card. Stop by and enter and don't forget to link up this Thursday.

    Agi:)

  5. Sorry, that wasn't clear! I just edited it to include instructions. Just write a post showing your 7 items and 7 outfits and be ready to link up on June 12th. I'll post a button to include in the post to link back here. You're an expert at this so it should be no problem for you! :)

  6. I am excited to see how you mix up your 7 pieces! I am not sure that I could do it!

  7. I accept the challenge. I've been meaning to challenge myself to think out of the box when getting dressed at the moment. I'm mentally putting outfits together right now.

  8. This sounds great. I hope I can make it work. It's the shoes that are going to be a challenge...

    I would be so willing to give this a try if shoes weren't included in the 7 items...

  10. I'm so excited, I think I'm in this time!

  11. I'm not much of a commenter, but I never miss a post here! I have to say, this sounds like a lot of fun. I'm living out of a suitcase this month so I'm already kind of doing this! :-)

    Thanks for extending this challenge to your readers. <3

  12. I've been dying to try something like this! I have exams, so I can't promise anything. Plus I've never linked up with anything before, so I might get that wrong :P. I'm excited either way!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh man, I wish I would have known about this earlier! My weekend is way too busy to get my act together before the 12th. But I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else does!

  14. Okay, shoes count, but what about belts and jewelry? What if one of my pieces is sheer - does the cami I wear underneath for modesty count as a separate piece? I just want to make sure I'm doing it right. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Belts and jewelry don't count. Accessorize to you heart's content! I'm personally not counting camis because they're undergarments to me. The rules aren't strict--bend them to whatever feels like a challenge to you while still maintaining the spirit of the challenge, which is to simply exercise your remixing skills and inspire some other people! :) I'm so excited that you'll be participating!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Doh! I will line up some other challenges with some more notice next time.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Cool! I thought accessories and camis were "free", but I wanted to be sure. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! I'm really excited about this too! You, GCOGH, and a handful of other bloggers, have really changed my life over the past year. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I had a similar question about accessories and tanks (which I wear under everything). Thanks! Pulling some items now and trying to decide what to pick...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really want to try this too. I'm sort of scared if shoes count, that means I can only wear however many other pieces are not shoes. and I'm not even a shoe horse. I wear like 3 pairs ever.

    This sounds like fun. I am going to have to try this even if I don't have time to write a post for it. Thanks for challenging us to stretch our wardrobe.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Exactly, me too! Am totally going to do it. The creativity and resourcefulness required for te 30x30 without the time comittment!

    So fun! You know I love a good remix challenge, and it's been a while. Can't wait to see your 7 looks!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am really excited about this challenge! I did a 30x30 in April and really appreciated the clarity that I got about how to use what is in my closet, rather than just buying a new "outfit"

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmmm...now THIS...could be fun! I may have to join in!

    Only 7 items? Wow that is a challenge! I will need to extra creative to see if I can do this one but can't wait to see what others come up with.

    sounds fun. I don't know if I can do it...

  27. Oh I LOVE this Audrey! I'm in for sure! The 30x30 seemed a bit daunting to me...and quite frankly...unrealistic! 7 days is PERFECT...especially if you are traveling or are behind on laundry :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Audrey--I have a question. For my 7, I've included a lightweight sweater and a chambray top since it's rather chilly in the mornings. If I use them as layering pieces, and then do almost the same outfit another day without them--does it count as 1 or 2 outfits?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi Mindy! Hmm...I could see different people counting it different ways, so it seems like something that would be up to you. I think it also depends on how you wear them and how you accessorize them. Personally I'd say why not count them as two? And if you can, try to accessorize them differently or do whatever you can to make them look different.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ditto. I love this idea, but I wish shoes weren't included. The only way I can get my list to work is if I use only 1 pair of shoes, which is kind of boring.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is my first week of summer vacation (I love being a teacher!), and this sound like a great Friday project! I wonder how long it will take me to convince my husband to be my photographer...

    Awesome!! I just came across this - sounds so fun and I'm definitely up for the challenge. I love doing these as they always push me to try new things. I discovered your blog a few weeks ago - love it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oooh I hope I can get my act together and get photos done this quickly... because this is a fun idea, and even better for me to practice with my limited maternity wardrobe for the summer!

    ReplyDelete
  34. FUN challenge! But it looks like you didn't put any shoes in your 7 items...

  35. Hi AJ--there are no shoes because like I wrote in the post, those are *not* the pieces I chose for the 7x7 and that you'd have to wait and see. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. OOO, I read it that the 7 items included shoes. This sounds fun!

    ReplyDelete
  37. shoes are included in the 7 items. She said those items pictured are NOT her 7 items.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I just mapped out my 7 pieces, but mine ended up being 8! Oops, not including shoes! I am planning to try these outfits out and then makeany changes I want to to the process! I am traveling to my cousin's wedding in July and want to pack intentionally and simply. Here we go!
