Readers Getting their FAB on: Week 2 of FABruary

By Andrea Zanetich

FABruary week two

What’s February without a little ‘Fabulous’?

That’s the premise behind our current month-long challenge – FABruary. It’s a  fun nudge toward trying things we might not have done, to really explore our wardrobes, and make the most of what we’ve got lurking around in the back of our closets.

Two weeks in and we’ve pushed 3,000 pics on Instagram alone from women around the world who’ve taken up this style challenge with gusto.

It’s been so much fun to see the different interpretations of each daily style challenge, and also to get some amazing style tips, ideas and inspiration from such a fabulous and diverse group of women.

Reader Highlights

Here are some of the highlights from week two of the Fox in Flats FABruary style challenge. But to see all of the amazing shots so far, check #FABruary on Instagram – I’ll bet you $10 the shots will give you new ideas for your own wardrobes, and make you smile.

Andrea’s Photo Album

Here’s a little gallery of my FABruary efforts to date, including Day 14 – ‘Quiff’ day – where I was nearly too scared to get out of the car at pre-school drop off as my hair was just SO BIG. I don’t really know the teachers or any of the other mums there yet, so not quite sure what first impression this is making ;)

What’s also so amazing is the number of women who’ve blogged about their experiences doing FABruary.

chrystallovevintage is a fabulous blog I’ve discovered while doing FABruary. Her post 6 steps to not looking hideous will gobsmack you, and is also full of great tips.

Jess has been updating daily on her blog The Quest for a Functional Wardrobe.

Keisha’s done a round up of week 2 on her blog Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams. I love how she’s really exploring her wardrobe and being so honest about each daily challenge.

And Kim-Marie – one of our Top 50 Style Dare Bloggers - is at it again in FABruary, and gives us a shout out on her blog Kimba Likes.

If you’ve blogged and I’ve skipped you – sorry – and please let me know so I can include you here next week!


C’mon, join in the fun!

There’s still ten more days of FABruary to go, and it’s not too late to join in (or get back into it if you’ve slackened off)!

Simply pop over here to grab the daily style challenge list, start rummaging in your wardrobe, and get creative. It’s all about making the most of what you’ve got, doing things a little differently, and unleashing your fabulousnesses.
