To Close it Up







There you have it and there you are.
{If you're super duper observant, you've already noticed that number 4 is missing.  Read HERE to remember why}

It is no secret that I am incredibly glad to be finished with this challenge.  I've mentioned before that I was less than enthused with my 30 pieces as I got into the mixing.  However, looking back at the full, finished catalog of outfits, I'm pleased with how the whole deal turned out.

This time I ended up wearing a bunch of outfits (using these items of course) that didn't get photographed.  If I ever decide to participate in another 30x30 challenge, I would not do that again.  Because I did, the challenge seemed to (and did) drag on waaaaaaaaaaay longer than it needed to.  In the end it became more of a chore and less of an adventure.  It sort of zapped my creativity.  Eeek! I for one do not ever want blogging to be a chore.  Boo to that idea!

I had aspirations of waxing philosophical in this post, but as I sit here at the keyboard I just kind of want to be finished with this whole thing.  I have indeed learned some lessons (good and bad) about my closet and myself through this challenge.  I still really believe in the 30x30 concept and find Miss Kendi to be a sheer genius with a giant sized brain for conceiving of such a thing.  I'm ultra glad I finished.  But now I am just extremely ready to have some quality time with the rest of my closet... So, if you'll excuse me I'm off to give my other clothes a little attention.

Poor you! I tend to do mini versions of that challenge whenever I go on holiday, but I definitely wouldn't have the stamina for looking good enough to photograph 30 days in a row. Well remixed!
