Wine & Jewels: Day #17

Had a quick jaunt to a fancy jewelry party this Saturday afternoon. With an actual event to attend, thought I might dive into my 30 items and make it count. Wine, fabulous food, friends, and a wonderful array of necklaces and bracelets I got to parade arround in and pretend I could afford.

Ruffle Top: Joie,  Tank Top:    Pants: NYDJ Skinny Jeans, Boots: Rack Room Shoes

I’m getting a lot out of this ruffle blouse, including a few happy approvals at the Sporadica party.


Mustard Leather: Day #1

Oh hey wind chill factor, thanks for coming to see me today! Sure enough the day I plan on wearing a skirt the cold takes its turn on my dance card. Yes, in this case forms of weather can dance.

I forge ahead anyway to begin my 30 for 30 Challenge and wear this mustard-hued skirt that I skillfully thrifted. It looks like leather but it is actually a delightfully lightweight fabric with a bit of sheen. A basic white blouse I will definitely be using later in the challenge, and I round it off with tights and my pirate boots. I eventually ditched the tights since they were really uncomfortable.

Fall Challenge: 30 for 30, Care to Join Us?

Can you handle the challenge?

I’ve decided to embark upon another 30 for 30 Challenge, this one for Fall/Winter. This means new maddening adventures with choosing 30 items from my closet and using ONLY those items to create 30 different outfits. And this time, we are looking at some layering action, as it gets chilly even here in the high desert. Wondering what is considered the low desert…

Anyway, some rules:

  1. No repeating.
  2. No shopping.
  3. Be creative, get outside your comfort zone.

I don’t count shoes or accessories in my items, that just makes it unbearable. The idea is to use what you already have and put it together in new ways. I will be joined on this wayward adventure by my lovely friends Samantha and Sara (click to check out their respective blogs), and hopefully we can all stick with it.
