Shopping in a Store Called Randi's Closet

I picked my items for the 30x30 today...it was a lot harder than I thought.  I had to make sure I had all my bases covered...casual for travel and days with kids...business appropriate for work...job interview appropriate...dressy for nights out... Not an easy task.  But here is what I have chosen...
Skirts                                                Sweaters
-blue denim skirt                              -Red cardigan
-black denim skirt                            -Gold cardigan
-black pencil skirt                            -Black ruffled cardigan
-black lace skirt                               -Black and silver drapey cardigan
-tan corduroy skirt                           -Black chunky cardigan
-navy wool skirt                               -Purple short sleeve sweater
Pants                                               -Pink v-neck sweater
-Jeans                                              Shirts
-black leggings                                -Blue button up
Dresses                                          -Plaid button up
-Black cotton sheath                       -Gray and blue striped t-shirt
-Gray wrap dress                            -Nude and black lace tank
-Flowered Tucker dress                   -Blue lace tank
-Black sweater dress
-Black brown patten dress              -Fuzzy vest
Blazers                                          -Free People sweater coat
-Black Tuxedo blazer
-Gray Blazer

Just call me a cheater, cheater pumpkin eater, but I know I do not have and shoes or boots listed in my 30.  Well, I had to be realistic with everything I have going on and cut myself some slack.  I am looking forward to testing my remixing skills since I had to cut the challenge short this summer.

It's not cheating. You really get to make your own rules in this so you need to do what works for you. I'm glad you're doing it!

Can't wait to see how you put everything together. I also don't think it's cheating. I contemplated having 5 "rotating items" that could be swaped out, so don't feel bad.

I don't think it's cheating at all! You still have the basic idea down, and there's no point in adding unnecessary stress to your life :)

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I almost didn't include shoes either. I'm so glad you're doing 30 for 30 too! Are you going to go the 30 days straight or just post when you've made outfits using your 30 until you've done 30 of them?
