Yes, You Read Right, I am a Cheater Saturday, Feb 26 2011 

In my last blog, I admitted to cheating on the weekends. I need to set the record straight, since I am a woman of integrity (I like to think so anyways, you would have to ask someone who knew me in college, since that is clearly where my personality was formed). I give you evidence of outfits I have worn not in my 30×30. And no, these are not just pajamas and work out clothes. They are full-on going out clothes (I refrain from cheating at work, the Nerd would look negatively on that, plus I don’t want it to take 3 years for me to get 30 outfits out of this. That would really defeat the purpose).

Ok, so this one isn’t so bad. Although you can’t see them, I am wearing my navy Express jeans and my nude Franco Sarto pumps from my 30. (Top: Brown Eyed Girl)

This one is a little worse, but I am still wearing my black dollhouse pumps (not pictured), which are in my 30. (Top: Target, Skirt: Express)

This I have no excuse for, and worst of all it was last night after admitting to the world that I am a cheater. To make matters worse, I don’t know the name of the store where I got this dress. I know it was on Magazine Street in New Orleans and the designer is called Moon Collection, but I failed to make note of the boutique name. Shame, shame, shame. The gray pumps I am wearing (not pictured) are from Lotus Boutique.


Being a Good Friend’s Pitfalls Friday, Feb 25 2011 

Being the good friend that I am, I allowed my friend who I will refer to as Creole Lady borrow a few dresses last weekend to wear out. No biggie, we swap clothes all the time. It turns out there is just one problem: she took two of my 30×30 dresses back to her house. While I know I will get them back eventually, Creole Lady has a bad habit of procrastinating when it comes to returning my clothes. I still have a significant number of outfits left before I reach the intended 30 (I have been cheating on the weekends occasionally), so I will have to blitzkrieg her home in the next couple of days so that I bring my dresses to their rightful home in my rotation.

Day 15


Carnival Time! Thursday, Feb 24 2011 

I love Mardi Gras. I think it is about 30% of the reason that I moved to Mobile (that is probably a gross exaggeration, but whatever). Not only are purple, green and gold three of my favorite colors, but I admittedly enjoy the general revelry (i.e. food, drink, fabulous outfits, parades, dancing, basic merriment). Not that I have used up my quota for parenthesis, I better get to the last couple 30×30 outfits. I think I will try to write a blog about Mardi Gras once I get some good pictures.

Day 13


One of Those Days Tuesday, Feb 22 2011 

The night before last I woke up at 4am and could not get back to sleep until about 8am. The next day followed suit and I was basically worthless. I managed to get make-up on my skirt, I was generally wrinkled and my hair looked like I just rolled out of bed. After returning home I continued to accomplish nothing except napping and hanging out with my dog. Oh, I did watch an entire 2 hour episode of the Bachelor.

Day 12


It’s Starting to Get Weird Thursday, Feb 17 2011 

I am finally starting to see how remixing can help me with future wardrobe choices. I am also learning that taking pictures of yourself every day you become wackier and wackier. Today, I posed with my friend Manny:

Day 11


So, This is Awkward… Thursday, Feb 17 2011 

Yeah, it has been a while since I have updated. I am sorry to all my fans out there (I know there are so many of you), but on the bright side I get to show off a whole array of outfits all at once. And, in no particular order:

This was my “I got the blues” outfit, so I felt that it was only proper to photograph it in my blue bedroom. I guess I should have made the bed, but it’s the blues, man, and it is dirty. Dress: Brown Eyed Girl, Sweater and tights: Target, Shoes: Shoe Carnival, Belt: Red Dress Boutique

Day 7


Day 8

This is my attempt at being trendy. I love this because I can wear it to the office and to the bars. Also, I think I am getting much better at photographing myself. I picked a reasonable spot that looks cute and I am almost centered! Top: Francesca’s Collections, Pants: Express, Shoes: Marshall’s (Dollhouse)

Day 9

This, for anyone who does not work with me, is Exploreum Green. Sometimes I like to feel like part of the team even though I work upstairs in the office. Top: Limited, Skirt: Anthropologie, Shoes: Shoe Carnival

Apologies to the Nerd Wednesday, Feb 9 2011 

Well, as I suspected, it took me a few days to get mt pictures together for the last couple of days. I left my camera at work, didn’t utilize my break to upload pictures and found ways to generally procrastinate putting up my last couple of pictures. But I am now trying to wisely utilize my time (by staying at work after my shift).

Anyhow, this would not have been a problem except for the fact that I also had all of my friend the Nerd’s photos on my camera as well. I would like to extend my apologies to her for making my procrastination her procrastination.
