And here you have it, my 30th and final post of my summer 30 for 30 wardrobe challenge.  I’m so happy I finally completed it and have it on the site.  It’s funny though that as I write this, I’m wearing a sweater and boots now that it’s fall and here I am in this photo wearing shorts and sandals.  Next time I have to not procrastinate and get these photos up and on the site within a few days of taking the photos.  I have no excuse nowadays now that I have an iPad and it’s totes easy.  That or make it a goal to finish the challenge within the allotted season.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a recap post including photos and links to all thirty outfits.

Striped Out

I’m finally back from Miami! We had a fantastic time and I can’t wait to finish up the mega blog post I have started on all we did and saw while there. It’s going to have tons of pictures and information to share, my favorite to share being all the vegan friendly eateries we visited.

In the meantime I’m totally wiped out. I got back from work on Monday, and yesterday was out of the office visiting clients and today having the worst work day ever. Crisis after crisis. Ugh. And next week I get back on a plane for a business conference in Annapolis, Maryland. So much for a vacation to chill me out!  Now I have to plan another one.

So while I stress out today, you guys get to finally see number 28 of my 30 for 30 challenge. Only 2 more looks to go!

Skippin’ Like a Record

So I’m skipping  over day sixteen straight to day seventeen. Why? Because I never got any photos of day sixteen. On day sixteen I had the opportunity to check out Comedy Central‘s Comedy in the Park for Summer Stage, and in the time frame I expected to take my pictures, I was instead stuck in traffic for one and a half hours! It usually only takes me about 20 minutes to get home from work. I was PISSED.  Then once I got home I had another 20 minute subway ride to Central Park.  It was a LONG evening.

While I did get lots of pictures at the event (a post is soon to come), I didn’t get any photos of my outfit. So I’ll attempt to recreate and photograph it hopefully sometime this weekend and get a post up.

In the meantime, enjoy my uneventful day seventeen photo. On day seventeen if memory serves me correctly I promptly went home and changed into my neon pink Peta sweatpants after taking these photos.

I Only Dance If There’s a Pole

This past Saturday, I attended my Uncle’s 65th birthday party all the way out east on Long Island. The event was a surprise party, so my Aunt had instructed everyone to wear “wedding attire” since my Uncle had thought he was attending a friends daughter’s wedding. I’m really glad I had decided to include my convertible 70’s style jumpsuit in my 30 for 30 challenge since it worked perfectly for this event.

The party was one to remember. My family likes to go all out when it comes to parties. There was a DJ, beautiful centerpieces, lots of delicious food and plenty of drinks.

Day Twelve 4

Oh, and there were cigar rollers! I love me a good cigar, I’m totally weird that way.

Day Twelve 5

My absolute, favorite part of the evening was getting to see my Great Aunt. She back a few years ago had moved to Arizona, and it’s been really difficult for her to get back to New to visit us or for us to go and visit her. My Dad managed to get her to NY as a surprise for my Uncle. She’s totally one of a kind. She’s in her 80’s, hilarious and has a horrendous potty mouth. To give you an idea, I asked her if she wanted to dance with me and she told me “I only dance if there is a pole involved!”. I was dying! I am beyond happy I got to see her!

I love you Auntie!

Pixellated Houndstooth

17 Aug

This dress is probably one of my favorite stoop sale finds… ever.  While at stoop sale this weekend with the hubby, I spotted this sheath dress on a rack and was instantly drawn to the houndstooth pattern.  Little did I realize that up close it actually looks more like pixellated space invaders!  The dress was a size 4 (I’m usually a 6) but it was only $5 so I took the plunge and decided to buy it.  So glad I did, the thing fits like a glove! 

As a happy bonus I guess I’m now a size 4. 

What I’m Wearing:

Dress: Stoop Sale Find- Jessica Simpson (who knew she had a clothing line?  I didn’t!)
Earrings: Bejeweled (the old store on Graham Ave)
Heels: Payless
