What a Control Freak!

Ok, so I have made an executive decision, since I have decided that I am the head executive of my life. I am going to participate in Kendi's from Kendi Everyday famous 30 for 30 Remix.

Some reasons why...
I figure it will give me some semblance of control in my life. Between the job search and my body's decision to have a mind of it's own, I seem to not have control over anything these days. So I will be the master and control my clothes.
The Remix is going to be a real challenge. I am going on two trips to new York during the time period and also going on job interviews. But I am stick with my thirty through it all.

I did Kendi's 30 for 30 Remix this summer... It definitely was harder than I thought it would be... I learned a few things that I am going to try this time around.
Pick items that I love. I am going to have to wear each item many times, so they better be my faves. Last time I picked a few things I had just bought because I wanted to wear them right away. That was a fail because I was not sure how to remix them yet or even if I liked them.
Pick clothes that are realistic for my lifestyle. Last time I picked too many casual clothes. Since I still work and have to go on interviews, I have to make sure to pick enough dressy stuff, but also some casual for my travels.
I am adjusting the rules a few to make the challenge work for my life...hate to be a rule breaker...but I have to be realistic...
Shoes do not count in the 30 items.
Tank tops and tights are also not part of the 30 since I wear them everyday under everything... Cold here... must layer.
Finally, the only time shopping is permitted is when I am in New York. It is not often I get there and one of the reason for the second trip is shopping!
Now, of to my closet to obsess over what items will be included in the vaunted 30...

On a separate note...
Must watch football, eat nachos and cheer for my Chicago Bears to eat the Green Bay Packers!!

I'm so glad you're going to do it! This will be my first time so it was great to read your tips and tweaks.

I hope you have tons of fun in New York! And good luck on your interviews!

I'm jealous that you get to go to NY twice! I definitely think interview clothes should be exempt from the 30.

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

I'm doing the challenge, too (I did the last one, and I really enjoyed the new perspective it gave me on my closet), and I absolutely agree that tank tops don't count...I consider them an extension of my undergarments, actually :)
