Only 30 Spaces Available--Who Made the Cut?

Here are my 30 pieces for the 30 for 30 Remix Challenge from Kendi Everyday. What a brilliant idea Kendi had for her wardrobe, and how awesome that she shared this with us and have invited us along.

Six dresses

Four skirts*

Nine tops#

at dry cleaners
Five cardis%

One pair of jeans, one pair of pants

My ninth top# and fifth cardi%. These were
the last articles of clothing to make the cut
leaving four more spots for footwear.

These items were in my Fall 30 and made the cut again:
1-This made an appearance later in my Fall 2010 and needs more blog love
5-Okay, this dress wasn't in my Fall 30, but its fraternal sister was
8-Makes a great bandeau
15-Great as a skirt
16-Great as a skirt
19-I want to do more with this
23-I only wanted one pair of jeans this time around and this one can be worn with any kind of footwear
24-I only wanted one pair of pants. I almost didn't choose these because they didn't get much wear in the fall. That's exactly why I chose them because I'm loving the paperbag-waisted look right now
27-Needed black flats for when my new heels start killing my feet
29-I wanted some dressy flats
30-My only pair of brown/tan heels

That's like 1/3 of the items for this challenge. Is that cheating because I know they work well? Or, does it prove that this challenge can help us to work with what's already in our closets? Believe it or not, I have not purchased a single article of clothing since I completed the Fall Challenge. Granted, I ended after most everyone, but considering I didn't shop since I began that challenge, I haven't purchased clothing for myself since the end of November! I have purchased accessories but not blouses, cardis, sweaters, pants, jeans, skirts, dresses . . . you get the picture. I've got about ten more hours in case I get a wild hair (my hair is always wild).

Tomorrow: Let's Get This Party Started!

  3. Wow, you haven't bought any clothes since November? I'm REALLY impressed. For some reason I thought you were a shopaholic, after telling me that you found 4 pairs of flats at the DT nordstrom rack ;)

  7. I think it's so great that you've been on a shopping hiatus since November. This is definitely much more self restraint than I have!

    I can't wait to see what you come up with this time around for the 30 for 30.

    I've finally posted my answers. Sorry it took me so long. I actually had a small set-back and had to go to see my surgeon again. He had to remove excess tissue around the one of spots where my bottom left wisdom tooth used to be. so anyway, i'm ok now. how are you doing?
