January 30th, 2011:
It’s my last day of the challenge! So bittersweet…I have to admit, it was truly a challenge. Every night, I would plan my outfits for the next day and spent many mornings rushing to the office very, very late because of my picture-taking sessions. It was also very time-consuming to blog real-time twice a day, since I have a full-time job. However, it felt really great to know that I looked my best every day this month, and that I was inspiring others. I’ve even been asked to continue my fashion posts, and although I would love to be able to do so every day from now on, it’s just not possible. But, every time I really enjoy my outfit, I’m going to try to make a similar post as to not abandon the concept all together past January.
But on to the outfit! I had to go out with a bang, so I used one of the shots from our impromptu photoshoot today at the park across from our home. The last time I wore this dress was at Epicenter while onstage with Bush, so it immediately brought me so many great memories the second I slipped it on. The hubs had bought it for me for the trip from a great Etsy seller that finds thrifted items and alters them to have a more modern fit. Absolute love! I paired it with my new favorite wedges and my trusty “cold” weather staple: the jean jacket. The ears were just for fun, but I would not bat an eyelash if I had to wear them around – they were one of the last hand-stitched ears available at Disney World. They are made electronically now, so it feels kind of special to have “vintage” memorabilia.
So how did you like my fashion posts these past 30 days? I’d love to hear your feedback!
