Could you wear the same dress for 100 days in a row?
Elizabeth McCarthy could – and she did – for 103 days to be exact. What better way to get value out of your new clothing item than to wear it on repeat for nearly a third of the year?
In this chat, we explore the reasoning behind this experiment, as well as the implications on her daily wardrobe, the impact on her travel wardrobe, the details of the dress itself, and what this might mean in terms of sustainability.
In other words: It’s a good chat!
Note: This audio was taken from a live video chat event we had in our community, HPLWorld.

- Why Elizabeth took it upon herself to take up the challenge of wearing the same dress for 100 days.

- How this will impact the way she packs for travel in the future.
- How this challenge will impact her own wardrobe at home.
