30x30- Day One and I'm Having Fun!

For those of you who don't already follow the beautiful and hilarious Kendi Everyday- she is the creator of the 30x30 remixing concept.  You take 30 fabulous pieces of clothing (footwear included) and you mix and match until you have created 30 distinct outfits....plus you don't shop for 30 days (a great reason to participate- your credit card will thank you!)

Initially I was nervous to start remixing but I organized my closet last night and 30 pieces could stretch for a year with the right accessories.  My first outfit consists of a great new black tunic dress I bought on sale at Gap as well as my leopard print stilettos which are my prized possession (last year's birthday gift from my best friend).  Don't worry all you frozen Canadians, I wore my waterproof boots (also in my remix- I'm not cheating yet!) to work and then changed into my heels at work. Sky-high leopard print heels and fishnet stockings...appropriate for daytime work?- probably not (good thing my boss is a fellow fashionista!)....fun and flirty?- absolutely!

Dress- Gap; Blazer & Belt- Thrifted; Heels- Aldo; Bracelet- A SweeT, Beverly Hills; Nail Polish- Speed Dating by Rimmel; Tights- Wonderbra

 Isn't it crazy how much my hair has faded in one week?! It's now closer to my natural hair colour so I don't feel like a stranger caught in my own body at least!


  1. This is so cute. I love the tights, and heels together. It reminds me a little of pin-up style. I look forward to all your remixes.
