Oh hi there, 30 JoAnns from the Remix Challenge. It's a little exhausting for me to look at, because I feel like they're all staring at me, wanting to borrow my clothes.
Anyway, some (non-scientific) statty-stats about my foray into remixing:
- I never wore the sequin shirt that I claimed would be the "piece de resistance" of the entire challenge. I am also apparently not good at predictions, so do not rely on me for lottery numbers or your future children's names*. Actually, not wearing the sequin shirt became deliberate after the 20th outfit. It was getting colder, and I couldn't think of a different way to wear it without covering the sleeves.
- Most-used items: the French Connection white bridal dress (5), the Old Navy leather skirt (5), the Target boots (20!).
- Favorite outfits: Anything that involved a red/black/white color scheme or the J. Crew paisley dress.
And some final thoughts: This was not an easy challenge for me to do, and not just because it required me to do my laundry more often. It really challenged me to be creative with my outfits, but so much so to the point where I felt like I was constantly competing with the yesterday version of myself and trying to outdo whatever I had previously done. I am very happy that I pushed myself to do so, because I do like a lot of what I put together, but I am relieved that kind of internal pressure I created for myself in this challenge is over and I can move on to more important things.
Like wearing sweatpants.
Kidding. Just wanted to make sure you were paying attention.
(Could you imagine, though? My dresses would be sharpening their pitchforks)
*I have a feeling you should name your child Astrid, regardless of gender, because that's a wicked name. Also, 42 is a good backup for any lottery number situation.
