Day 21 & 22 of Project 365

Confessions of a shop-a-holic  ~

I have found a new blog !! She has become my fashion Icon....sometimes its hard to find someone with the same flare and style as you but I DID. My Stalker tendencies have kicked in, I have downloaded her pictures on my Ipad and use them as a guide on how to branch out on new outfits ! I am having  a blast, and not to mention I went shopping for the first time in a long time for myself. Me and my dearest friend Cassi hit the mall, Friday and spent about 5 hours in only 4 stores!!!! We tried on everything, and we walked out with quality, staple pieces and not to mention, stylish  for both of our wardrobes. My new fashionist will  be starting what she calls 30 for 30, and I have joined!!!!!  I will be taking 30 articles of my clothing and only wearing those for 30 days. I will have to mix and match those pieces. Not including jewelry and / or accessories. I will be starting Feb 1st and will post my adventure of remaking my own style and expanding my creativity....and as I think about it I feel it may be easier said then done. The goal of this is to make us realize that we don't need new cloths we need to expand our own! And not be limited in our "Clothing creativity"
A few of my new purchases as I gear up for 30 for 30:
January 22nd -Saturday Date Night with My hot husband: 

I got this new Army Style Jacket and Shirt, I pared them with my skinnys and brown large belt! As I like to call them but my new "Stacy London shoes"!  She is my Absolute Favorite
(she is on TLC What Not To Wear) 

My Date Night with My husband !! Thanks babe for taking me shopping and out to a movie :) 

January 23rd- Sunday Church :

Trying my new out fit out. I go this new Dress and belt I pared with it. 
 Dress: JC Pennies
Sweater: Target
Brown Belt: Urban Outffiters
Knee Socks: Urban Outffiters
Sued Boots: JC Pennies 
TOTAL PRICE= $60.00 :) I love sales
One of my favorite parts of the day: One of the employees at the store asked me if I was in fashion? I said no. They said "oh you look like you should be and you know what you are talking about! you should consider going into the fashion industry. " I am learning that if you buy staples that you can use over and over, even if its a little more than a sale price its worth it in the long run. Also Have fun and look at the sale racks and buy things that fit, and if they don't fit and you wont get them tailored, DO NOT BUY them!!!!! I am the role model for that one rule...I buy even if it does not fit and never get it fixed!!! I end up never wearing it and it adds to my confusion of what I should wear in the morning. So after my shopping spree (and I wouldn't even call it that, seeing as I had A LOT of self control and only purchased a few items) I went home threw out 3 garbage bags of cloths and re arranged my closet! Like I said Total make over for my look and my closet!

  3. I also LOVE that blog and have been thinking about doing the 30 for 30 remix myself... but I'm chicken! I can't wait to see your pics though, I wasn't at church Sunday or I would have raved all over you because your outfit is FABULOUS!

  4. Haha, Well more power to ya! I know a girl that is doing that and she is struggling a bit she is on day 17. but she is enjoying it. will you take pictures of your outfits everyday?
