Almost famous: Items cut from the 30 for 30

Before i inundate you with too many 30 for 30 posts, I thought I'd show you which items were thisclose in making it into the challenge. Because I wanted to really utilize some of the lesser-known items in my closet, I tried not to include many duplicate items. Here are the almost-made-it items from my closet:

This vintage skirt: I really wanted to include this skirt for its blue pattern and length. However, when I tried it on with my other blouses and dresses, its thin fabric didn't layer very well with other items. So it was out.

Banana Republic top: Despite my efforts to include this benchwarmer in the challenge, its design was too similar to another top I chose, and I already had a lot of blue items.

Naturalizer heels: These heels go with so much, and I love the low style for work or for football events. However, with the cold weather coming in, I couldn't include another pair of open-toed black heels.

Do you have a lot of duplicate items in your closet? For those of you remixing, what items almost made it to your list?

  1. Love that blue top! Such a pretty shade.

  2. I have a lot of duplicates in my closet. Every time I am about to purchase something I have to answer these questions: Is this black? Do I already have something like this in my closet already?

    I am banning myself from purchasing any more black coats (blazer does not count since I don't have one yet), but I have A LOT of black clothing, A LOT of black.

  3. Oh yes, I have many duplicates! When I find something I really really like, it's super hard to stop myself buying it in different colours or prints... oh dear!

  4. It was REALLY difficult to say, "later" to a few of my favorite pieces too. This whole project makes me so grateful for the closet I have instead of wanting, wanting, wanting more!

  5. I love that you did an 'almost' 30 for 30 post. Very unique. I don't have many duplicates in my 30 items but, then again, I planned it that way haha.

  6. You look so adorable!

  7. Love that you're trying to use some more challenging pieces for the remix! I definitely have some duplicates in my closet, but black heels are probably my worst offender! :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
