flash back friday

30 for 30 flash back: 
lessons, recap and a secret

what i have learned: 
  • i need to lose about 4 lbs so i can get back into my brown dress.  
  • every girls doesnt NEED a little black dress ... i survived 30 days without one. 
  • my blogger site does not like me sometimes and was not very cooperative when posting and organizing the pics below.  
  • i can wear 2 dresses at the same time.
  • how to be more creative with my wardrobe and be confident about it.  in the past, i might would put together a great remix but then change before i left the house.  over the past 30 days, i didnt have a choice ... i had to be brave.  
  • its less awkward taking pics by myself but they usually turn out better and its more fun when husband helps.
  • this challenge has definitely altered the way i will shop and look at my current wardrobe.  now i know i need to focus on replacing some items and adding a few things.  
  • i know now that i need more cardigans.  the two i have were used a lot in the past 30 days.
  • my cowboy boots were a fantastic purchase and have served me well, but i will eventually need a regular pair of brown boots.

a secret: 

i broke the rules.  i went shopping twice during this challenge.  once i just went to get tights and found a hat at kohls for $2.  i really dont consider this cheating because tights and hats are not counted in the 30 items.   but the 2nd time, it was just flat out wrong ... but oh so right!  i went to target a couple of weeks ago, looking for a baby shower present.  in the corner of my eye i had seen a dress that i loved since the summer.  get this ... it was 70% off AND they only had my size left.  please tell me ... whats a girl to do in a situation like that?  so i bought it ... i paid $5 for this dress.  yes, it is a summer dress, but i can pull it off now and im pretty stoked! 

whew!  i feel a lot better now that i have gotten that off my chest.  

thanks to all the encouraging comments, here and on my fb page!
