I have been doing this all summer. I lost some weight, but not quite enough, so I am working on that and don't want to buy a lot of clothes right now.
I started in June with 2 skirts, 3 t-shirts, 1 pair of shorts (sadly, I split the butt of these), running shorts, bathing suit and about 5 pairs of unders and 3 sports bras.
I don't really love it, but it is working. My clothes are starting to look really, really ratty and while I haven't quite made my weight goal, I think I need to pick up a few more bits of clothing. The thing I do love is that I know exactly what I want to wear now! I love skirts! So versatile and comfy. I love easy t-shirts and plan on getting 3 new short sleeved ones and 3 long sleeved. 2 sweaters/cardigans and another skirt or two. One or two pairs of warm leggings and I'll be all set for winter.
Sadly, today's fabrics just don't hold up to so much wear. And I don't know where to buy anything better. Summertime here is hot and muggy and sweaty clothes have to be washed after every wearing. I wash gently in a front loader and hang everything to dry, but with this much wear, my clothes have not lasted any decent length of time. I think if I was to really to to 6 items, I would need to buy really great clothes or make my own from heavier fabric.
