30 for 30 remix challenge

I am sure you have all heard about Kendi from Kendi Everyday...if you haven't checked out her fashion blog You MUST! Kendi is an extra fabulous lady who has incredible style and a wicked sense of humor. Seriously after checking out her blog all you'll want to do is go shopping with her.

Not only is she fashion savvy but she's also budget friendly and she came up with the wonderful 30 for 30 remix challenge. Here's the explanation from kendi herself
Ok so... what is the 30 for 30?

The 30 for 30 is something I came up with in April to help me learn my way through my closet by remixing my clothes. So here is the basic premise, I take 30 items from my closet (shoes included) and mix them into 30 different outfits over about a month period.

So you want to try it out? Good for you. Here is how to do it.

1. Pick out 30 items from your closet. Shoes are included in the count, coats and accessories (i.e. tights, jewelry, hats, gloves, and so on are not.) I won't use a coat yet here in Texas, but you might in say Chicago so I don't want to penalize you for Mother Nature's wily ways.

2. Remix the 30 items into 30 or more outfits.

And that's it! Ok -- not totally.

3. No shopping for 30 days.

Eek! Why in the world would I add insult to injury? Well so that you'll learn to work with what you've got and you'll learn to appreciate it. Learning to shop your own closet will in turn help you learn to shop outside of your closet. When you have to get creative with your wardrobe you discover other ways to wear a shirt or skirt, that you might not have thought of. Or you might just discover that you really like a certain type of skirt or that you gravitate towards a certain type of jacket, etc.

So I 've decide to take on the challenge!!! and I am really excited. Here are my 30 items!








5 pairs of shoes
4 pants
2 skirts
2 Jackets/blazers
12 tops (1 not pictured..in the laundry)
3 cardigans

So get ready tomorrow for day 1 and some other exciting things:)
