After having some technical difficulties, I'm finally back in business, so I'll spend the next couple of days catching up! This outfit is from last Thursday when it was in the seventies. There was no way to be in a bad mood that day. After a long, cold winter, that first feeling of spring warmth is just heavenly. I went all out for the occasion and sported some bare legs!
That brings me to my outfit and an unfortunate confession of another switcheroo. This is my first 30 for 30, so it has definitely been a learning experience. To me, this challenge is about getting creative with your clothes and getting better at using what you already have, so I'm not going to be too hard on myself for bending the rules a bit.
Sadly, I carelessly ruined my lace birthday dress. I'm notorious for playing Russian Roulette with my laundry because I hate doing dry cleaning. It's expensive, it's inconvenient, and the chemicals are nasty. I can almost always get away with hand washing or doing a delicate machine wash, but every once in awhile I regret my lazy laundry ways! Anyway, the dress is still sort of wearable as a tunic, but I knew it wouldn't be an ideal candidate for remixing, so I switched it out for this accordion-pleated dress.
