30 for 30

Hey!  This is Leah.  I've been mentioned a few times on this blog and let me just say it has been an honor.  Not quite as honorable as being given the login name and password!  (text me for the details.  up for grabs for the highest bidder! OK not really...)  If you are reading this blog it's because you absolutely adore Lise and Joy.  (DUH!)  or you are into reading blogs about fashion. 

If you are into fashion blogs I'm almost positive you have heard of the "30 for 30 Challenge"  You take 30 items (shoes count, other accessories don't) and mix and match them for 30 days.  The point of the challenge is to appreciate what is in your closet and find creative ways to wear the clothes you already have.  I feel like I do both fairly well.  I'm doing the challenge because I'm a little bored and wanted a good excuse to get on this blog!

So...  Lise came over and played photog for me while I played model.  And let me just tell ya I've got a new found respect for those skinny, pouty, airbrushed ladies (well and it's girls now these days eh?  but that's a WHOLE 'nother blog post)  Trying on all those clothes lickety split was hard work!  Here's my first week all in one post.  I'll do next week... uh... next week... that is unless they change the password...

 I am not scared to pattern mix!!!


Pretty much everything I am wearing in just about all of these pictures comes from my favorite thrift store, Peace Place.  I wait for the "bag sale" when you can get 8 items for $8.  Other items (teal Loft blouse and coral Banana Republic blouse) are from yard sales for no more than $1 each and everything else (striped tank, NY&Co necklace, Target Cardi) has been gifted from my lovely friend (Shout out to Krystle!)

This is all for now.  Hope to post again next week!  See y'all later!


  1. There is so much here to comment did a fabulous job and I really like every look. I think my favorite is the polka dot cardigan with the striped shirt!!
    Come over and visit the three posts I wrote on Fashions Night Out in San Antonio...I took lots of pictures to share with everyone. I hope to see you back on this blog...if you can sneek in again!!

  2. What a cute post! You did a great job :) Blogging is definitely a lot of hard work so I commend you! The best part was almost everything was thrifted! SCORE :)


  3. I think everyone can see why you are about my favorite person....ever!
    You look amazing in all the pictures, but I love the ones we took with the chicken. Seriously, if you can look glam with a chicken, you can look good anywhere. Love ya Leah.

  4. Was the chicken an accessory or one of the 30 items? Cause I want to see it again!! You did a fab job! Maybe we should just make you a permanent member of Team Southern Comfort!

  5. @Pam- Those pictures look like y'all had a great time! I wish I could try on a prada dress!

    @Heather- Blogging IS hard work! I am a stay-at-home of 4 children under the age of 6 while my husband works part time and goes to school full time. Thrifting is a MUST! In fact, my friends say I'm a thrifting snob. I'm not impressed unless it's thrifted! lol

    Lise and Joy- The chicken (whose name is Fehdohs) will return. lolololol

    @Matilda- THEY. ARE. MINE. (seriously though that is the only sad thing about thrifting. Pretty much everything is one of a kind and you hit the jackpot if it's in your size. I think they are Daisy Fuentes but couldn't tell you the year. Try ebay?)

  6. so is the chicken part of your 30x30??
    you are off to a great start!
