Many of us may be wondering how we can inject some color into the dreary month of January…

But for Taryn de Vere, the answer came when she spotted a bottle of toilet opener in her bathroom – and imagined herself wearing the same colored clothes.

The mum-of-five challenged herself to style her outfits based on an article in an Everyday Home in January and posted a photo on her Instagram page.

They included outfits based on everything from a box of baked beans and a box of Quality Street to a packet of Always Ultra and a tube of toothpaste.

And his posts have gone viral, attracting more than a thousand new subscribers a day.

Accessories designer Taryn, originally from Australia but now living in Donegal, Ireland, says: “The last few years have been really hard work and I haven’t had a break.

“I decided to take time off in January and do something creative, but then the Covid numbers came up and I knew it would have to be something at home.

“On December 31, I was sitting on my bed and my eye spotted the unblocked sink in the bathroom. I thought, yes,

“I have the colors to do that.

“Then I got really excited and went around the house to find all the items I could dress up.

“Every day I dress inspired by a different object, doing my best to replicate the packaging of any product.

“I was overwhelmed with the response. I get messages from people saying the first thing they do in the morning is check my Instagram feed to see what I’m wearing.

“I’m so excited to help brighten up January for other people too.

“My only rule is that I have to use the clothes I have and not buy anything new, but I’m a hoarder and have been collecting charity and vintage clothes for years, so it’s not difficult.”

Taryn has now decided to continue her challenge until February, when she will try to dress like objects in other people’s homes.

She said: “I got a lot of messages and requests asking me to dress up as something important in their country or city, and some of them are really cool.

“I think it will be a fun challenge, connecting with the world and people’s pride in their local brands.

“Other people have messaged me saying, ‘please can you keep doing this forever? Maybe I will!”
