  1. I so respect those of you who do these challenges...go get em...I look forward to seeing what you do with these!!

  2. Very nice collection, Lise (and you are a super thrifter!). Let us see how you do it, should be fun.

  3. I give you credit too for doing the challenge! It just takes so much PLANNING! ugh.
    Can't wait to see what you do with it!

  4. I love a woman who is all about skirts & jeans. That's how I roll, too!

  5. You Roooock!!! I am such a skirt person also (big suprise). I love the pieces you chose and can't wait to come over and take some more pictures!

  6. I don't have the guts to do the 30 for 30!! You've got some great pieces and dang you SCORED on ALL of them!

  7. I can't wait to see all the outfits you put together! I've never been brave enough to do 30 for 30 but I love seeing everyone else's outfits! I noticed that a lot of your items are thrifted. I love thrifting and every week I host a thrifting link up. It'll be up all week starting tomorrow and you can post thrifted finds or outfits that contain thrifted items. I'd love for you to join in!
