>1/30: Let’s get this party started!




Nothing says “party” like sequins. Am I right? I love a top that makes me feel like a walking disco ball all day, but I’m not sure that the poor, innocent passerby appreciated being blinded by my blingy clothes in the Florida sun… {Sorry folks sitting outside at the coffee shop}. 
As I kick off this round of the 30 for 30 with hundreds and hundreds of others, I have a few things in mind to make the most of this remix.  I picked much more practical pieces this time in a mostly neutral palette — although not entirely blue like the last post suggests, durn lighting — so mixing and matching feels more convenient than taxing. I hope to get around to lots of new-to-me blogs and meet more people in this amazing community Momma Kendi has spawned.And I sure hope to finish on time! In order to do that, I’m working a few days ahead (i.e. I actually wore this first outfit on Saturday). 
To all the other bloggers who started their remix today, good luck! Leave me your URL so I can check out your lineup :-)

    >Yey! Love your remixes! You are one of the first remixers I started following. : ) And I am beyond nervous about this whole thing, but what's the worst that could happen, right? How do you get your wonderful images of your clothes with a white background? Photoshop? You're too cute. xo

    >Cute! I love the sequin top! I'm wondering – where do you do your collages? They always look so fun and nice. I also am seeing a lot of the colour "swatches" on fashion blogs lately – is there a website you can put these together? If you could send me an email letting me know your process that would be awesome! Thinking of starting a style blog and would love to do similar montages! Thanks :)
