Yes, it really has been that long! Technically, it lasted about 14 or 15 weeks, which was around the time I had my first “repeat” outfit. However, I have been enjoying the creative aspect so much, I’ve just kept going. The aim is still to wear something original every single day, or as often as possible; in fact, the “repeats” haven’t been all that common, except when it comes to dresses.

Monday, April 1, 2013 – shopping

Remix Challenge
Dress, Milly (consignment); jacket, Esprit (swapped); brooch, vintage; boots, Hunter; bag, Longchamps

Monday was a holiday at our office, so I was home with Luka. I was rescued from wearing pyjama pants all day by my mom, who stopped by and took us out for a bit of shopping. I took advantage of the continuing nice weather to wear my “new” military jacket again. So versatile!

Remix Challenge
Skirt, Winners; top, Ann Taylor (thrifted); cardigan, Winners; brooch, vintage; shoes, Enzo Angiolini. Featuring a walk-on role by toddler (20 months)

Going back to work after a 4-day weekend is always a bit of an adjustment. I added some extra sparkle to my cardigan to make up for it. This outfit features another piece of my clothing swap loot – notice my gorgeous Enzo Angiolini pumps. The close-to-midi length of the skirt needs a bit of extra heel, and this is a surprisingly comfy pair.

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 – work

Remix Challenge
Pants, J. Crew Factory; blazer, Theory (consignment); blouse, Moda International; shoes, Stuart Weitzman

I normally wouldn’t wear all the colour on the bottom, but I wanted to take advantage of the (still) warm-ish weather and wear my pee-toe pumps.

Remix Challenge
Skirt, BCBG; blouse, Max Studio (swapped); belt, J. Crew Factory; shoes, Cole Haan (thrifted); necklace, Jacob (swapped); bag, Chanel (consignment)

Another piece of clothing swap loot, with a bit of history to it. This flowery Max Studio blouse was a piece I’d helped my friend Robyn pick up at Goodwill a couple of years ago. I loved the print then, and I still loved it enough this time around – to nab it when it made its appearance at the swap. It works well with my new chunky pearl necklace – a piece I originally swapped 2 or 3 years ago, which eventually came back to me. It’s rare that I take back swapped pieces if they turn up in a later swap, but this was one I’d actually kinda missed in the interim. Funny how things work out!

Friday, April 5, 2013 – work

Remix Challenge
Jacket, RW & Co. (swapped); top, Tory Burch (consignment); flats, Tory Burch (consignment)

It snowed again. Le sigh! I decided to wear something bright to try to save myself from my doldrums, so I picked my most “tropical” top. I also ended up wearing one of my best (recent) consignment finds: Tory Burch Reva flats ($30). All in all, not a bad outfit for something I put together on the fly in the morning.

Till next time!

6 Comments on Remix Challenge: week 29

  1. Nice blouse in Thusday’s outfit. 😉 I’m glad its getting some time outside the closet.

  2. I think I like Friday’s outfit the best. I’ve had a hard time picking outfits lately – it’s so chilly outside but then my office is roasting all day. So lots of layers! I’m also just really tired of winter and waiting for spring!
