30 for 30- Remix Items!

Sometimes people ask me for style suggestions. Maybe its because I'm a clothing designer. Maybe its because I wear all black, so my clothes always "magically" go together and they think I have good style. Maybe its because I write a blog about fashion and they think I know stuff. I like to give people advice about what they wear. I like to be helpful. Sometimes they listen. Not usually.
Many times, my advice is to clean out your closet, once or twice per year (Spring and Fall) and try on everything - making outfits- so you know what fits, what goes together, and what you still like! (I can go into more detail about this process another time.) I even suggest taking pics of your outfits, so getting ready in the morning is a breeze. I did this last Fall, and not only was it super fun, but it helped me style my wardrobe in ways I hadn't previously though to do. Now- Summer. I am struggling with my Summer clothes, as you know. So, yesterday, I came across a fabulous way to challenge my Summer styling skills, and save some $$. Check out Kendi Everyday, and follow her immediately. Please. After you follow me. Please.

SO, here are the rules of the 30-for-30 Challenge!
1. First rule of 30 for 30 challenge, don't talk about the 30 for 30 challenge.
2. Pick out 30 items (shoes included) and list or take a picture of the items and post on your blog. (other accessories are not included- belts, jewelry, watches, etc.)
3. Only wear the selected 30 items for the next 30 days- "remixing" them in new and awesome ways, making fabulous outfits.
4. No shopping for 30 days. This was Kendi's rule, which many of the other participants have also adopted. However since I am currently already on a shopping freeze, I am giving up eating lunch out during the week. Instead I will come home, or eat at work.
5. Spread the love to the other re-mixers. And invite others on your blog to join in as well.

So, here are my 30 "Remix" items. I know what you're thinking, they are all black and white. (Duh. Its me!) But as you can see, I have SOME color in my accessories. So you will not die of boredom for the next 30 days.
(I felt like I was taking a pic of my kids here) 5 Dresses
4 Tops
2 Cardigans
2 Skirts, 1 long short, 1 cropped pant, 1 pari of jeans
6 Tanks (layering)
4 Tees
4 Shoes
see? Color!

What do you think!?
If you want to participate in your own 30 for 30, let me know!!
Also, please know that I will still find the time to post pics of people with terrible and offensive style over this next month. So if you don't want to see pictures of ONLY me. So, don't worry. There will still be pics of horrible looking people on this blog, you know I can't help myself.
