That was a spontaneous outfit, all the rest until now I had somehow planned ahead.
There is a little something I've been meaning to ask you , do you always write what you wear ,you know the name of the brand...etc.Why you do that? And if you don't why not!I'm in two minds.

I thought that the best part of the challenge would be the remix of clothing itself.But I was wrong!It's the comments! Almost like a random act of kindness your sweet,encouraging ,smart comments give me motivation .
And what's more,this exchange of comments builds up and some form of closeness happens with some of the bloggers! And this along with my family and friends makes everyday life a lot more rich and fun!!!
How do you feel about the comments you get? Do you feel a kind of connection with the bloggers you comment more or get the more comments from?

Exotic how?I asked again.He said that she wore colors,skirts and colored tights.This innocent conversation got me thinking that I dress outside the conventional way thus... the exotic.
But how far away have I gone down the road of style ? Am I turning into someone funny ? Where is the thin line between personal style and turning into a weirdo? Do you ever worry about these things or is it the lack of shopping?

- I've never worn so many pinks before in my life!
- I've never used the same belt so many times!
- I've never had my husband taken my photos before!
- I've never been that organised before!!!
- I only have 4 poses!

In the middle of the week I started feeling a pressure of posting one outfit a day. The thing is that each post needs time to brew as I like to say. From the selection of clothes to the take of photos, the editing and the actual writing is a lot of work and it takes time to be done.
I'm a working mother of 3 primary school children and I have that much time left. I was almost ready to quit but then I realised that we don't have a dead line and we can skip a few days if we are busy and that this challenge was about having fun with our clothes, not stress over it.
Have you faced similar problems?Do you post every day? Have you thought of quiting!
PS this is my first attempt with colored tights.What do you think?

To my utter disapointment my husband said I looked like a gondolla boy feeling cold! I made a serious attempt to prove him wrong and I loaded myself with accessories.
Before I go out the door he said I looked classy!!! Men are so unpredictable!!!
Do the men in your life approve of your stylistic choices? Do they have a good sense of style that has saved your butt occassionally?Do they notice of the things you bring back home?
P.S Yesterday wasn't my lucky day but it was an easygoing, productive, happy day I got to spend with the people I love! Isn't that luck after all!!!

Six is my lucky number. Six was the date I was born and I'm telling you I'm a lucky woman! I hope this will be my lucky outfit. If so, I will wear it once a week!
It consists of a fairly simple colored sweater, one of the skirts I made myself , my trusted belt and a lovely scarf.
But are you familiar with the consept of lucky clothes? My husband wears a shirt he considers special every time he wants to make a deal. He swears it 's working everytime and he has yet to be proved wrong!
Do you have clothes or accessories that bring you luck? I will put this outfit to test and report back tomorrow. Have fun!!!

After almost a year in the fashion blogospher I'm under the (false maybe?) impression that you shouldn't wear florals in autumn.
Well,today I'm gonna break this rule (if it ever exists!!!)
This dress (yes,it's a dress)has made it's debut in spring and was worn most of the summer.I love the color so much that I want to give it one more chance before I put it away for the winter. See how good I am with my clothes?
Do you put your clothes away according to season or wear all of them all the time? How good are you with your clothes? Do you give them many chances before throw / keep away for some time?

What kind of an outfit can be made out of a 4 year old capri, a 20 year old blouse made by my aunt, an old fashioned cardigan bought for a few euros in a local market and an impulse buy of shoes?
An outfit with personality. My personality! That's the kind of outfit you get when you remix the things you love!
Does the following happen to you? The more I remix the same clothes, the more I love them and the more I love them, the more creative I get in wearing them. Or is it just me?
If I'm allowed one style tip, this cardi is long but for today is nicely & carefully tacked under my brown belt!

Do you also beleive that Paris is a magical place? Do you also think that women in Paris have the style gene inserted somehow in their DNA?

Yesterday, I confessed how super organised I am when it comes to my clothes. I've already planned ahead all 30 of my outfits. It's a long list but I pick and choose as I wish every morning. Then I adjust, polish the look and I'm ready to go...and pose! After that, I'm off to work as fast as I can !
Today's special item is a purple top, which, I swear, I remember my mum wearing back in the 80s .It's pure silk and it has got the best shades of purple I've ever seen.
In an attempt to impress you all, I did my double layer trick. I layered a top over a dress and a cardigan over the top. That's the next level in layering and in this way, I hope that I scored high in comfort and creativity!
What do you think of my outfit? Do you do the double layering thing? and the most important how far ahead are you in planning your outfits? I'm sooo curious!
