7.28.10fBad news — the real outfit number 18’s photos got deleted. I know. You can blame my husband for that. Just send complaint mail to mistereveryday@randomemailprovider.com. Subject line: How Dare You?

So this is the stand in for outfit 18. She was a little upset when I explained to her that she was going to be 18 and not 19. But that’s the way it goes when you are just a number in my closet line-up. Speaking of outfits and the 30 for 30 challenge, how the h are some of you almost done?? Just how is that possible? I’ve got 12 more outfits to go and about two more weeks. I’m envious of your determination, endurance and quick remix abilities. Also, I’ve noted that I must be a really slow dresser.
We were in Austin for the day and stopped over at BookPeople (one of my favorite spots in Austin) to take some pictures. You guys, this took lots of bravery because most of the time it’s just me and Bryan and no one else. Today it was me, Bryan and a store full of books and people. Ha — Books and People, BookPeople. I didn’t even mean for that to happen, but I’m glad it did.

  1. Whenever i'm blogging I think "why am I not as funny as Kendi?".

    and then I think WWKS? (What would Kendi say?). It's never as funny as i'd hope.


  2. Noooo! I was just there last week (from NYC) and I wish I could have happened upon your pics-taking!
    I probably would have felt like a creeper for recognizing you though, and not said hello.

  3. Kendi, you crack me up. 🙂

    I have to get through the challenge quickly so I can reclaim the rest of my closet (and possibly my sanity)!

  4. Even though this outfit is just a stand in it's doing alright by itself 😀 Now I can't wait to se number 19! She has a lot to live up to.

  5. I am also shocked people are done – I think I've averaged an outfit a day since the 5th, and I think I'll be finished on Monday…I guess I don't have an exciting enough social life to warrant outfit changes…or something.

    Those glasses totally freaked me out, by the by.

  6. I tried to contact mistereveryday but his mailbox is full 🙂

    Oh my gosh, I used to work at the Whole Foods next door and ended up spending most of my paychecks in BookPeople! Love that store and I love that you took pictures inside. Kendi recommends..

  7. Maybe its just because I'm a huge bookworm, but I absolutely love these photos. The one of you laughing and reading is so cute! Loving the outfit too…I hope someday I get up the courage to take my outfit pictures somewhere like this!

  8. hahaha you are seriously funny! (Ooh wait that is the title of the book you're reading.) really cute pics! 🙂

  9. I really like the pics in the book store. Good job being brave – I'm all self-conscious when we take my outfit pics too. Even when I'm taking them with the timer on my camera by myself in my house. Just kidding 🙂

  10. I'm really glad you were brave enough to do this because the pictures are so, so great! The outfit works so well with the colouring of the background too.
    I am real shy about having my picture taken in front of people for my blog too. I wonder if we'll ever get over it…

  11. but really, how are he!?
    just kidding, happens to me all the time.
    i always take these really good outfit pics, forget they're on my camera, and delete them..

    but i do love the stand in for number 18.
    book shop photographs are my favorite.


  12. I applaud your bravery because I adore these pictures!! There is nothing that I love more than a bookstore – it's my next favorite store after the J.Crew outlet! Cute outfit!

  13. How dare he! Did he get carried away deleting photos on the camera and accidentally slipped and deleted the photos he wasn't suppose to delete? — I do this ALL the time!

    Cute outfit! I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

  14. Ah this is so cute! You have guts too girl! My fiance and I were on a mission a week or so ago to take outfit pictures in our Borders but once we realized how many people where in EVERY section… Well it just became real awkward and I couldn't go through with it! I just need to suck it up!@

  15. You should punish Mr. Everyday man by making him wear your 30 pieces (at once, of course) and taking a picture and NOT deleting it and actually posting it here… I'm just saying!
    Nah, your Mr. is a great photographer and deserves forgiveness.
    The challenge is great, as soon as I start blogging (which will happen someday in between today and next February 31st), I'll take it too 😉

  16. Hi Kendi, I love your outfits and think the 30 for 30 challenge is a great idea. Maybe I'll join in one day when I'm happy with my wardrobe haha. Just wanted to let you know I've given you a little something on my blog =)

  17. ahhh… i used to live in austin and book people was one of my favorite places to spend an afternoon. i was so excited to recognize the background of these pictures. way to go for being brave!

  18. Yoiks. I hate the accidental delete. Back in the film days … oh, nevermind.

    That belt is the bee's knees.

  19. You always make me laugh…almost spit out my coffee when i scrolled down to you in those glasses. Love that belt and that skirt!

  20. hahaha…creepy glasses. cute outfit, though — she's holding her own as # 18.

    i also like how clearly i can make out laura bush's face in the background.

  21. I've been stalking your blog for a bit now and have decided it is absolutely fabulous.
    I Love your style, I love your sense of humor, I just love.

    I'm your newest follower! Thanks for such a fun blog!

  22. I wish I had the courage you have to take pictures where others can see them. I barely even want to take them outside for fear my neighbors might see me.

    But now you have me really wanting to go to a store for pictures. That would only work if my husband took them instead of me having to set the timer and running over.
