"Fixed it" - take an outfit you've already posted in the WAYWRN at least the week before (to prevent "gaming" by posting a deliberately bad first outfit during the challenge week), and improve it for your entry, submitting the old outfit alongside the new. It would be a great learning opportunity for all of us, though it would limit entries to those already posting in WAYWRN. To broaden entries, one could do it as a "Thought Process" challenge, where you post what you were going to wear and also what you actually wore, describing why you changed/improved a detail. Voters can decide for themselves how to vote (i.e. purely on absolute success of outfit, or most improved, or a blend).

 

I think that's brilliant. I like my suggestion of a "What would you wear to (x) event" challenge, and those suggestions above are even better.

Great idea. Don't see why we couldn't allow people to post fits from some of the prior challenges in lieu of WAYWRN fits to attract a broader audience. In principle the "Fixed It" concept would remain the same.
