Bag It Up Challenge | R O U N D U P

So it's been a whole month since I finished the Bag It Up Challenge and I've had time to reflect on it and the looks I put together for this Round Up post! I thought it was a really great challenge for me and it opened my eyes to the bags I have an how I've worn them in the past, and it showed me I have some clear favourites that got a lot of wear, some hidden gems, and some pieces that just aren't for me - which are now/have been in my Bazaar to go to a better home^ The challenge not only highlighted what some of my current favourite bags are but also brought my some great outfit combinations that I'm in love with now!

On my first look for my top outfits, I managed to pick out 12, which I think is a pretty good cull considering how long this challenge was! But I got it down to my 5 top looks from the challenge and I'm really loving all of these, I'm stoked to wear them again - and I'm also impressed that each look has individual items from the others, I'm a bit of a serial repeater, especially with these coats and jackets that are in the looks! Pinky tones, and colours in that range are clearly favourites, and I'm just loving that, and I do like some quirky colours too, like the yellow and the peach which can be trickier to wear so I'm glad that shows in my top picks. I'm also glad that I really haven't got any all-white or all-black outfits there and that I've really stepped out of a comfort zone for my styling during this challenge!

Again I've gone with my top 5 bags but could have picked a few more^ With duo and trio stylings I had more than 250 bags, and have added more to the collection during then with HBs and since then too, but I think this has shown me I can work quite well with a much smaller collection of bags than I have - so while I don't have a ton more to immediately sell or clear out, I think I will go through my wardrobe soon to have second decisions about some pieces! And with these picks I made an effort to choose pieces which weren't my favourite pieces before the challenge, because I definitely have a few of those!!! These are pieces which have left my wardrobe so many times since their first stylings to be worn in a multitude of looks and I'm so glad to have 'found' them as such =D
