I’m going metal-free in my wardrobe. Why? I don’t hold a grudge against the Steelworkers’ Union. I’m not protesting third-world labor practices. I’m just curious to see if I can pull it off.
I participated in an fMRI experiment this weekend and I couldn’t have any metallic traces on my body. As I went through my clothing options that morning, I found the task harder than I expected. And so, I decided to challenge myself to a metal-free week. My inspiration also partly stems from The Uniform Project, in which a "pilot" pledges to wear one dress for 365 days to promote a cause.
The first picture is me on "Day O." I wore this outfit for the fMRI experiment.
1) No metal on any clothing item
2) No jewelry
*3) Purse and watch are excluded
Let's see what happens this week...
