Remix review

So here is everything I wore:

to make 30 outfits!
01-0506-1011-1516-2021-2526-30

Just in case you didn't notice, I actually only wore 27 items and made 30 outfits. I am patting myself on the back right now. I do feel like I cheated a little in that I wore the same dress 4 times, but with different shoes and accessories each time.

I really enjoyed the picking-my-clothes-as-I-go method because I am really a terrible planner and this made me feel like I had more options. My goal was to wear every time at least 3 times but I ran out of outfits before I had time to wear everything that much. This is why I decided not to add more clothes and just keep remixing.

The only shopping I did was for some accessories, most of which were on sale at Target and would be gone if I waited. So another pat on my back :)

My favorite outfit was probably #9 - comfy yet stylish and still showed off my best assets. This time around I have discovered that shorts can be stylish with a little bit of thought. And I think I will want to do another challenge sooner rather than later. Yes I am weird like that.

So now it's time for a break. I have plans to post my vacation outfits; however being in Maine with the fam is not usually the time we dress up. We will do some shopping however and since the challenge is over, I think I may splurge a little!

i've totally thought about doing a thirty-for-thirty every month just because it seems to make me more creative with what i pair together. but then i remember about how much a like my shoes! anyway, congrats on finishing yours up...i really liked all the ways that you wore that pinkish drapey top. it's giving me some great ideas for remixing!

You did AWESOME!!! I would've bought the accessores too. That's not cheating, it's being smart. :)

I knew you were savvy enough to make the Pick Items as You Go work. 27 in 30. Wouldn't it be amazing if you can push that number down next time? My favorite is the Print Dress 4 ways. Although I also realy liked the Print Skirt with the Brown shirt and big belt. But i cant remember the outfit number. Also cant see it while commenting. It was the first Week. Congratulations Eek!
