Daily MelWear: Outfit 23/30

Moving right along and we're halfway through this week! Yay!

You guys are all so incredible. Thank you SO much for your recommendations and help regarding my camera/laptop questions yesterday. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! I think I've narrowed it down and I'm pretty sure about the camera at this point. Now I need to figure out the tripod and the laptop situation.

Toward the middle of this 30 for 30 challenge, I felt like I was running out of outfits and didn't know if I'd be able to finish it out. Now that we're in the last third of it, I know I can make it to the end! I've figured out a few repurposes (like today's outfit - wearing my leopard dress as a shirt and layering a skirt over it!) for certain items. I have a couple more outfit ideas but I'm pretty sure I can figure out the rest of them too. I hope so, anyway! I've been considering doing a recap post of all the outfits together. Would that be helpful or interesting to any of you or do you normally just skim over those posts?


So what do you guys think about extending Fabulous In February and making it Magnificent In March? There weren't many replies so at this point I'm thinking maybe we should keep it to February as originally planned. Do you think we should extend it?

Today's outfit:
Leopard Dress (as a shirt): Wal-Mart
Black Pencil Skirt: Ross
Blue Belt: Salvation Army
Black Pumps: Target
Gold necklace: Gift from ML

  9. I read the text of a recap, but honestly, there are just too many pictures all in one spot for me to process. It's probably too late for this, but if you did a recap of each article the last time you wear in the challenge, that would be interesting! Kind of like how Eeek! does in every post.

    But using dresses as shirts is key! Great move!

  10. I love the animal print and I must say that I am jealous of your belting abilities. I don't think I have the right body type for belting.

  15. LOVE the leopard print.
    I wish I could help with the laptop but I spent a fair bit of scratch on my new one. I thought that it was worse than trying to choose a car. It totally sucks so good luck!~ <3

  38. Love this look- the blue belt really pops it up! I misread the first sentence and thought you meant we were only 1/2 way through the challenge...I would have to quit if that was the case ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the idea of using the dress as a top. I do that too. Or use the dress as a skirt and cover the top. Kind of doubles the possibilities within your closet. Recap would be cool. I just would love if you do larger photos to see details. If you are getting a compact camera you can by those flexible tripod thingies. They work great.

  44. You are just too cute with the leg up pose! Love that leopard print! I definitely chose more dresses because of their versatility. I just wish I had one with the sass of the animal print.

  46. I ADORE this outfit!! I have almost no animal prints in my closet, but I think I've finally realized I should give them a try more often, because this is super cute!! I love the way the belt adds that final bit of color too! Just perfect! :)
