Virgin Run: My 30 for 30 Picks

Well, Here it goes, everyone. I might have selected myself into a few corners, but there’s nothing to do now but go ahead and try! These are my 30 for 30 picks. You may have seen a lot of this stuff before, and so oh well. Come back in a month. Just kidding! I promise to be super wacky and creative. 
In case you don’t know the rules, I am going to wear nothing but these pieces and whatever accessories I chose for the next 30 days. I am not going to shop during this time. Or at least I wont buy anything when I do shop. 
Here’s what I’ll be remixing (sort of like R.Kelly’s “Remix of Ignition,” but with more chartreuse).

UPDATE:  I have two dressy events this month and I didn’t add the dress I will wear to the fancier one yet. The dress isn’t really remixable, but I will take a picture of it soon because I have now made myself feel guilty.


SEVEN TOPS (three are tie-front, how fun!)
FIVE SWEATERS (hope it cools down)
THREE CARDIGANS (who are presently engaged in some sort of a three-way tryst)
Sorry for the weird lighting. Inside plus at night were not the ultimate conditions. I think I will make up for it soon enough! I have only 29 things here, so I may just add another pair of shoes. Or a blazer. Jury’s out.

    I love what you did with your cardigans! It can get mind numbing taking all those pictures. I should have done something fun too.

  6. Jen HaHA says:

    Great dresses! I had five pairs of shoes last time and really only needed four. Still, I'm probably going to do five again. You crack me up with your cardi party 😀 I look forward to how you remix.

    I like how all your pants are set up like they're simultaneously jumping in the air, kicking their legs up. Like in those jumping wedding party pictures everyones tries to do.

  19. MONKEYFACE says:

    UMM, that first dress? YES. Incredible. So excited you're in!!

  20. Austin Eavesdropper says:

    Ok, this has nothing to do with your (fabulous) clothing selections … but. LAUREL what surface is this, that you are laying all of the clothes on in these pictures??

    Is that your BEDSPREAD?

    I must know where you got that! It is dreamy!!!

  21. Molly O says:

    Oh goody, I love remixes, but WOW, that's commitment. I don't think I could do that. I usually can't decide what I'm wearing until the very last minute. I'm not one of those people who plans ahead well. So good luck! i'm impressed already.

  22. Lauren says:

    Good luck! I have watched the 30×30 from the sidelines for now a year, too chicken to participate… Maybe someday!

    The picked out clothes look great! Can't wait to see what you do!

    Brilliant idea! Have you seen The Uniform Project? If not check it out – similar sort of idea. Ms Wanda approved – BIG TICK!!

  24. blahblahblog says:
