I Am The Champion


Outfit 30: Shirt: Thrifted, Skirt (dress): Target, Belt: TJMaxx, Tights: Target, Shoes: Steve Madden, Headband: Made by me
I'm done and Kendi crowned me queen of the remix go check, and if you believe that I'll tell you another pretty lie.I know I was all excited yesterday but now I'm realizing that I'm the ungrateful little child that didn't know what they had until they lost it. I've spent all of five minutes picking something to wear every day because there was so much less to choose from. Now I'll once again go back to the days where I sit on the floor and gaze up at my closet with glazed eyes, tears running down my face and screaming "Why???".
But, that doesn't mean this ungrateful kid has changed her ways, she's still very excited to go hug each and every item on the untouched other side of the closet. 
I did learn a few things this challenge:
1. Patterns are awesome, I now am a pattern mixer, wearer, and lover of. I rarely mixed patterns before and now I'm kind of obsessed.
2. A wardrobe can be remixed and remixed, you never have to look like you're wearing the same thing even if you have fewer pieces in your closet. 
3. I now love turning dresses into skirts with the roll and tuck technique, I have officially doubled the amount of skirts I have.
It was real, it was fun,It was real fun.
Here are a few of my favorite outfits from the challenge here here here here and here

  3. Jessica could be right, this is a really lovely outfit. And that skirt's a dress? Even better. Your last 'here' is definitely another contender for my fave outfit from your 30 for 30.

  9. Such a fabulous outfit like always. Your blog is one of my all time favorites. I'm so glad I found it when i did!

    Thank you for the kind words on my blog! :) I do have some flary high waisted trousers but i'm stuck to what to wear on top. I always feel like the pants already draw attention so i never know what to wear on top.

    And congratulations on finishing the challenge - YAY!! And yes - it will be overwhelming to have your closet back again. I'm so overwhelmed that while I have moved on to some other items in my closet - I've officially worn those items for almost 3 days in a row :)

  25. I love these patterns together. This was a great last outfit. When it starts back up I think I'm going to do it. I'm a little nervous though. I mostly get dressed on the weekends, because I can't dress fashionably at work. I dress for the elements.
