30 for 30 Challenge

Okay, I am nervous about this but I am diving in.  I am joining Kendi Everyday's 30 for 30 Closet Remix starting on Monday, November 8, 2010!!  See her beautiful invitation above?  Well YOU could join also :)  Wouldn't that be fun... then we could do it together!!

Here's what Kendi says you need to do:

What is the 30 for 30? 

The 30 for 30 is something I came up with in April to help me learn my way through my closet by remixing my clothes. So here is the basic premise, I take 30 items from my closet (shoes included) and mix them into 30 different outfits over about a month period.

So you want to try it out? Good for you. Here is how to do it.

1. Pick out 30 items from your closet. Shoes are included in the count, coats and accessories (i.e. tights,  jewelry, hats, gloves, and so on are not.) I won't use a coat yet here in Texas, but you might in say Chicago so I don't want to penalize you for Mother Nature's wily ways.

2. Remix the 30 items into 30 or more outfits.

And that's it! Ok -- not totally.

3. No shopping for 30 days. 

To find out how to join in on this, click on the pink invitation above or visit Kendi Everyday.  If you want her to add you to the list make sure you email her!!!

Oh boy.. are you going to join us???


Don't forget or you will be mad at yourself :P


  1. Hi Hunnie....wow, good for you.....Im sure youll do a fab job on the challenge...I may still join in....but Im going to NEW YORK the first week of December to film, that kinda makes the "no shopping" an issue, hehehehe:)

    Stop by and say Hello ♥

  2. No shopping for 30 days. Ehhh... do not think I can do that haha

  3. I'm doing it too! I'm very excited to finally be able to participate, since the last few times I was in the middle of moving...
    I can't wait to see what you put together!

  4. Wow! I am not joining you but what a fantastic challenge! Can't wait to see how you do with it all!

  5. I'm doing it too. We can all remix together. Just finalising my items at the moment.

  6. Woo hoo this will be fun!!! I have to get home and plan it out...oh boy, whoopee. ;)

  7. Seems those challenges are the thing of the moment XD Good luck and lots of fun with it.

    Thanks for your nice comment and to answer your questions:
    At the moment I do mainly strength training since I have a knee issue that I'm currently trying to get rid of. I "follow" mainly my gut and my whims. And as soon as I have read it the "Primal Blueprint" by Mark Sisson.
    I'd like to start at a short distance tri next year and get finally my marathon done, all of which was planned for 2010 but the knee...
    Congrats to your fiancé, this is an amazing accomplishment.

    Good luck for your training, by the way, core strength is key.

  8. I have been thinking of doing it too. Especially since it starts on my birthday, so it seems appropriate.

  9. I'm debating doing the 30 for 30 this time. It seems a little intimidating!

  10. Sounds Fun but I have a shopping trip to Bangor booked in the middle of November so looks like I am out. Looking forward to see what combinations you come up with from your wardrobe. My advice take lots of time picking and try all the combinations on so you know they look good and feel good. Good Luck!

  11. good luck with this missy, cant wait to see your outfits

  12. Way to go! I think that is a great idea, hmmm... I will give that a try one day soon I think, need to save up for the holidays lol

  13. HEY WOMAN!!!! Thank you so much for your comments and your feedback on my Chictopia post!! I really appreciate everything you said. So, yeah I tihnk I am pretty much done worrying about updating those sites!!
    This challenge looks SO Fun but OMG I dont know if I could go 30 days without shopping, how sad is that!!
    Keep us updated though!
