Clothed with Grace: 30x30 Day 22: Ace in the Hole

30x30 Day 22: Ace in the Hole

Day 22: 

My 30x30 challenge is 2/3 done, and after yesterday's rant about things that are stupid I wanted to wear something I knew I'd feel good about. This look was actually the first one I thought of for this dress. Why didn't I wear it sooner, you ask? Well, because I wasn't sure how this whole thing would play out, and I figured even if I had a number of flops towards the end of this challenge, I knew I'd have at least one outfit I knew I loved. Any other 30x30 girls think the same way? I've styled this dress two other ways so far, and I think I have one more look in mind before this challenge is done. 



Cardigan: JCrew (circa 2007)
Dress: Express $30
Belt: The Limited $10
Necklace: Target $3
Tights: DSW $1.5
Shoes: Nine West $30

    1. I have a couple ideas of things to keep it fresh, like a free button swap in February if you're interested. I have another idea for march, but am still working on the details :)

  14. I love the bright colors in your outfit. Wearing something bright is an easy way to cheer myself up when winter is wearing me down. And I don't have twitter either, I don't know if I'd have enough to say!
