I'm not a very organized person in most situations, but for whatever reason, I've been really nutty about planning this whole 30x30 remix thing. Sitting in my hot little hands is a comprehensive list of the 30 outfits I'll wear over the next month, complete with tally marks showing how many times each item will be worn. I know, I know - I'm ruining the whole spontaneous vibe by being so structured with this. The one area where I am keeping things spontaneous is WHEN I'll wear each look. That all depends on how I'm feeling on any given day. I decided to start with this outfit because it incorporates the two pieces that were late additions to my 30: this striped BR sweater and red dress.
The sweater is a favorite and has been buried in my hand-wash-laundry pile since May, so once I had it all freshened up, I knew I'd want to wear it as much as possible before the weather gets warmer.
This dress is one of my all-time most memorable thrift store finds. It was clearly handmade by its previous owner, and I picked it up at Buffalo Exchange in Las Vegas. The pattern is incredibly simple and really versatile as well.
