    Took my first pictures yesterday. Holy Awkward! I'm trying to resist the pigeon toe but it's only a matter of time, only a matter of time…

  2. You're really making me wish I picked up those red cords from Gap the other day while I still had the chance πŸ™‚ Such an eyecatcher!

    I really wanted to participate in this one, but as of right now, I am required to wear a lovely ensemble of unforgiving khaki pants and an unflattering green polo to work every day. But I interviewed for a promotion, which, if given the job, will allow me to chuck the khakis and start looking fabulous. Maybe next time?

    oh dear- jackets count in that 30? I have to tweak a bit, as my 30 didn't include a few pieces of outerwear πŸ™

    jess, i'm just guessing but i think it totally depends on if your jackets are outerwear and only serving for that function. of course, if you wear it inside as part of the outfit, it counts πŸ™‚

    I am sooo excited for this. It's such good inspiration for someone like me who doesn't have many clothes (a crime, I know!). I need to get creative with my wardrobe.

    Jess — Kelsey is so right. If you aren't remixing your outerwear, then don't worry about it. I don't have tons of sweaters or long sleeved things, so I included them as layering. If you are simply going to pop on a jacket and go, don't worry about including it! I'm sure your picks are JUST fine.

    I promise there will be no harsh punishment for bending a rule πŸ™‚

    oh kendi! first off you're making me wish i had a good/new camera! second, you're choices are excellent. I can definitely see how they will all fit together seamlessly into some lovely outfits!
    I'm concerned about 2 or 3 of the pieces i've chosen. I'm worried that they might not actually get used but once (unless i repeat an outfit – which i guess is ok – is it?) or not at all.

    making my choices has already made me realize what i need and what i need to "toss".

    as for the jacket conundrum, i left actual jackets off of my list because I live in the Bay Area and its so unpredictable what the weather will be like. I need lots of layers all the time and if i left jackets (and hoodies) on the list then my entire wardrobe would consist of jackets and hoodies. I consider them outerwear and so left them off. I did however include a cropped black jacket because it is not really outerwear but usually a piece of the outfit.

    very exciting…let's do this!

    Nice picks! There should be some fun outfits with the various mixes of colors and texture from the items you picked.

    About breaking the rules…I didn't realize that EVERYONE was starting Monday, I totally started yesterday. Still haven't shopped and I'm sticking to my 30…however, I'm realizing it's going to be harder than I thought…I think I picked too many sweaters, but it's freezing in PA, so I need them. Ok, ending my editorial NOW.

    Kendi, I'll be glad to do some laundry for you baby, with one caveat. You have to mail it to me!
    It will be a long distance laundry service and well worth your trouble because I iron and fold nicely too.
    Love the items for the remix, especially the leather skirt and gray dress from Loft. If only we lived next door and could barter laundry service for fashion tips. Think about it!

    I love your picks! Is it bad that it makes me want to go shopping to buy some different picks for mine? I'm already having shopping withdrawal, just thinking of not doing it for 30 days.

    Btw, I noticed some people included camis and such in their picks…but I kind of figured those were more like accessories…mine don't show most of the time anyway, so why include them?

    I'm so pumped to check out everyone's outfits, go us for being willing to get creative with our clothes, YAY!

    fantastic pics! i posted mine yesterday but my photos don't look nearly as nice as yours – i was rushing to get out the door and did a pretty crap job! i made peter take my outfit photos this week and they just look so horribly awkward – hopefully i get less stiff/uncomfortable looking as we get into the remix πŸ™‚

I'm excited you included the lace skirt, because I mentioned I have one, but haven't worn it yet. I feel like it's Christmas Eve or something, can't wait to see everyone start posting their outfits!

    I'm looking forward to seeing how you rock out this challenge and learning a thing or two from the remixing master (mistress? But that sounds like you're a man's luvah in the Victorian era). Anyway, I'm ready to get some skillz. Can't wait!

  62. No flats? You are a hardcore brave woman. I really wanted to do 30 for 30 but, 1) I'm a chicken. 2) I'm in the midst of an apartment fiasco so no time to even try to think about what I wear. Poop.

    I found your blog through one of my friend's links, and, let me say, it's refreshing to see someone work with a regular budget. And buy at stores that I regularly buy at. I can relate to you!

    Mom — THANKS! Turns out doing it by myself is cheaper.

    Alessandra — It's a sweater. Nothing fancy πŸ˜‰

    ほし — I consider boots as flats! Is that crazy? Probably. I had a pair in there but I just couldn't commit. I am a heel addict, sad but true.
