Outfit: 30x30 Day 24 and a Dilemma






NOW Discount Red

I finally got around to wearing the red cardi I put in my 30 items. It’s funny, I thought I would get a lot more wear out of it than I have as I tend to wear it quite often anyway, but it’s taken until day 24 to get an airing.



On to the dilemma. One of my dresses has gone missing. The one I was yet to wear from my 30 items:


I discovered its absence last night as I was thinking of wearing it today but couldn’t find it when I went to get it out. I have my suspicions as to what has happened to it, but as it is unlikely to materialise anytime soon I am faced with a choice. Do I add another item in its place? If so, do I add another dress as a straight swap, or do I add something else (I’m thinking of a pair of boots)? Or do I stick with the 29 items I still have – after all, I’ve not worn the dress in 5/6ths of the challenge, do I really need it? I don't know, I kind of feel like I'm cheating if I add another piece, but as I (fortunately) hadn't worn the dress it would still only be 30 items.

Readers, I am going to let you decide! Please vote on the poll below and I will let you know the outcome tomorrow or Saturday.

What should I do about my missing dress?
Swap in another dress
Swap in another item - eg. boots
Stick with the 29 items I already have free polls

It is warm today. Warm enough that I have ditched my winter coat in favour of my leather jacket, and I'm wearing knee highs instead of socks.

  1. Well the red cardi looks fab on you, LOVE red with leopard!

    I say go with the 29, things happen for a reason, and Fate wants you to pull up your sartorial bootstraps and show your skills even with 29 pieces. :)

  2. You've done such a fab job, and only a few days left! (you have such a knack for style!!)

    So, you didn't wear red on V-day??

    I love this outfit!!

    p.s. you have great hair too!
