Jan 10, 2012 2 Comments by laura

Hurray! Free Fashion Challenge II is a huge success: over 500 participants already and we are still counting. To celebrate this milestone we interviewed participant no.500: Lorraine de Roodt! Read more about this daring teenager below.

I decided to join, because I love shopping and I am really curious what it feels like to stop shopping for a whole year!

Most challenging? Sale will be a difficult period for me… And I love to shop for special occasions. I like the feeling of wearing something new. I will just try not to look at the windows when the new collections are in, hope that helps ;-)

I am an impulse buyer: I often regret what I bought. I will just wear it once or twice and then it stays in my wardrobe. I hope this shopping sabbatical will learn me more about what I really need. So I will take some time to think before making my purchases: Do I really need this? And isn’t there something similar in my wardrobe? And hopefully I will develop my mix & match skills, so I can make more different combinations with what I own.”

Thumbs up for this young participant! Lorraine and all other participants: we are really proud that you joined us, together we will make it through the year. Good luck to you all.

About the author

Hej! Exploring…that’s what I like most! Exploring new cities, trends in society, books and magazines, colours,blogs. I collect everyting: in shoe boxes, envelopes and closets, but also in my head. My dream is to change the fashion industry into a long term, quality driven business. Their main goal should be to make people feel beautiful and confident instead of that consumers feel afraid to be ‘out of fashion’. At the moment fashion is not as forward as they pretend to be… // Laura Founder and editor in chief of the Free Fashion Challenge

    hi, I was wondering… I’m keeping a FreeFashion blog since 01-01-2012, can it be placed under the “Free Fashion Challenge II participants?”
