Blogging Society Challenge

Okay, so this is probably a crazy idea for something that will never happen, but I just thought of it and it sounded exciting.

Beth over at The Vintage Society has been doing Society Challenges, which I totally love. She and her friend take a trip to a budget store (like Target or Forever 21) and pick out an item that they will both plan an outfit around. Then, using different items from the store, they put together their respective outfits and come out with two different - but fabulous - ensembles. Cool, right? Well, here's my idea....

There are so many bloggers with fantastic style. And all the American bloggers (well, at least most of them) have access to certain chain stores, like Target for example. Wouldn't it be amazing if several bloggers picked an item from the website of a store they all had access to to plan their outfits around, and then had maybe a week or so to go to that store and put their outfits together? If the item wasn't in store, they could get the store to order it in. And they could post the picture online when they were done. I think it would be amazing to see what people came up with. Our blogging community is so unique and fun, and it would be great to organize a Blogging Society Challenge.

Not to steal your idea or anything, Beth. It's just a thought. And a fun one, at that. If people are up for it, we could actually plan it, but for now, I'm just musing.

Update: I just thought of an even better idea that wouldn't exclude international bloggers or people who don't have certain stores nearby. How about challenging bloggers to style something classic that is everywhere, like a mens' button-down shirt? Bloggers could do anything from pairing it with their own clothes to tearing it apart and resewing it into something fantastic. Oooh, sounds exciting! Please do this with me! Let me know if you're interested, seriously!

I love the idea! Well, both ideas, in fact. I'd love to participate in some form, though I can't promise I would because I have bad procrastination issues. :P

I love this idea. I think, like the Grey said, it'd be fun to work with both depending on who's interested in participating. You could even have a flickr group for it.

Isn't the Vintage Society awesome?

Yay! I'm glad you both liked my idea! I was a little worried that I would be the only one who was excited about it. Maybe if a few more people express interest I'll set up a poll as to which idea we should start with. We can always use the other one another time!

Kori said...

Oh, and yes, Ambika, the Vintage Society is tres awesome!

coque - You're welcome to participate! I'm pretty sure this will happen, because I've had so much positive response! You would either send a picture to be published on a blog, or perhaps we'll make a flickr group. I'll be writing out the details in a post, so keep reading!

beauty and bangles - Thanks so much! I'll definitely take you up on that!
