Day Thirty: Hokey Parisian.
This exchange happened today: Chris: Did you get any compliments on your outfit today? Me: No Chris: Oh, I'm sorry. (Notice that that is also not a compliment.) Me: Well, I think it might be a bit hokey. Chris: Hokey? Me: Yeah, like corny. Chris: Like a sma...

Day Twenty-nine: And just like that- I feel like myself again!
I've decided that just about any combination of black and white prints or patterns get along like a house on fire. I was concerned when I pulled these pieces together that they would be too different, or too much, or too something . But I liked it, and I go...

Day Twenty-eight: A swing- and a miss.
In my mind's eye I saw this outfit as a fun mix of disparate, funky elements. Elegant equestrian meets dime store princess. Or something like that. In these photos I can see that the only thing funky about it is that it pretty much stinks. The 'shrunken' ja...

Day Twenty-seven: A big push to the finish.
It seems a bit ridiculous to still be labeling these posts 'Day whatever number is the next in line' when I am the only person in the history of blogging to take four freaking months to post 30 outfits, but for the sake of consistency I'm not going to chang...

Day Twenty-six: It looks like me, but it's not *really me.*
To my eye this combination looks really consistent with my age, location, education level, social status, politics, and proclivities. I mean, you can just tell by looking at me that I live in a Northern California university town, support recycling and alte...

Day Twenty-four: A pseudo suit.
This jacket seems to work much better without a shirt underneath it than it does with one. At least it doesn't work well when paired with any of the shirts, blouses or tops I currently own. I had been hoping that the sleeve length and proportions would allo...

Day Twenty-three: Double duty.
This is my version of the classic day into evening look-only mine is a Costco shopping into tea party look. Out local library has a terrific rose garden and the Library Rose Club hosted a Valentine's Afternoon Tea fundraiser. The dress code was specified- S...

Day Twentytwo: Moving towards a better boring.
I'm quite encouraged by the fact that, by sticking to the limited 30 items I chose for this challenge, even my get-out-the-door-and-go outfits aren't the abject failures they used to be. While this ensemble is a bit boring for the blog it looks and feels li...

Day Twentyone: I belt a cardigan and I am not convinced it is a good idea.
This black cardigan is the dark sister of the grey one I wore on days two and ten . I also have a blue one which is not included in the 30 garments I selected for this challenge. These cardigans are fairly boxy in shape which makes them, perhaps, not the be...

Day Twenty: In which I explain my absence and vow to keep going.
This outfit seemed to be destined not to be photographed. The first time I put these pieces together it was one of those days when everything conspires against you and it's already too dark for pictures by the time you have a moment to stand around posing. ...
