1-5 and i'm still alive!

I jumped into this 30 for 30 remix without really planning. I try to be a planner, but when it comes down to it, I'm kind of a last minute girl! I mean, I am a dreamer, an idealist, a planner of things that more fiction than reality, but when it comes to daily life, I fly by the seat of my pants. So here we are, a recap - it's like a plan after the fact!!

Okay... this remix thing doesn't seem so daunting.... 5 days down and I have only worn 18 items! That seems pretty good to me! Not to mention that every single time I have worn something this week, I have had another idea (or 5) of a way to wear it again. I have also been thinking of ways to redeem myself from my pre-remix-over-shop, and I think I have come up with it!

I have already decided that I am extending my "no shopping" until March 24th (maybe I said 25th earlier, but I need to be allowed to shop at the National Marathon Expo on the 25th...), but what I think I am going to do is exchange 15 items and continue to remix for 15 more days! It will kinda be like the 45 for 45, but I will only be working with 30 items at a time.... does that make sense? The "no shopping" part of the remix is probably the hardest part for me, but probably also the best part! I tend to binge on shopping, so it's good that I am getting myself under control before the next change of seasons!

  2. Hey fellow remixer! I saw your blog on the list and decided to drop by. I love your outfits so far! Especially 1 and 4 (maybe I just like skirts too much?). Also, wow, I don't think I could get up the guts to extend my no-shopping period that much longer...good for you! I agree that that's the hardest part of the challenge. Can't wait to see the rest of your outfits! :)
