30 for 30, Round 2: Sneak Peek

As I mentioned Monday, I will be participating in Kendi Everyday's 30 f0r 30 Fall challenge. For this challenge, I will have to chose 30 items of clothing (including shoes but not coats), and remix these items (and these items only!) for 30 days. The other kicker: no shopping for these 30 days. I'm going to allow myself to shop on Black Friday because I consider that day more of a holiday than Thanksgiving itself, but besides that, I'm sticking to the rules. For more information or to join in on the challenge, check out Kendi's post. I participated in a previous 30 for 30 in August (check it out here), and I'm excited and a little nervous to be joining in again. I thought I would give you a sneak peek of 5 of the items I've chosen so far; my final 30 will be posted on Sunday.

For those of you who are participating in the challenge, how are you going about choosing your 30 items? Is there a method to your madness? Are there any items of mine you would like to see included in my 30 picks? And does anyone else feel a desperate compulsion to go out and buy a bunch of new clothes to fill the "holes" in their wardrobe? Because I know I do. Friday may end in a shopping trip to H&M and F21 to find some seasonally appropriate skirts and dresses and possibly a new leather jacket. I guess I can try and justify it by saying I won't be shopping for at least another 30 days?

I'm still trying to decide whether I want to even attempt this challenge! I know my wallet will thank me if I do since I go shopping ALL the time and I have so much stuff that I have yet to figure out how to wear...I almost want to say no jeans to me, or at least my favorite pair, because it's pretty much all I wear.

Ha, I totally just stocked up on a few things from F21 for the exact same reason. It's bad--I'm telling myself to stop browsing clothes online because I'm totally going to defeat the purpose of 30 for 30. I'm pumped to see so many people participating though (just clicked through lots of bloggers who commented on What a Nerd Would Wear). Good luck!

Good for you! I'm to intrigued by the 30 by 30, but I'm way too intimidated to give it a go. Can't wait to see what you end up doing with your 30!

Nice choices! It's so hard to choose! I usually spread everything out all over my bedroom while I decide. And yes, I feel like I should go on a huge shopping spree this weekend knowing I won't be able to for 30 days!

I'm going to do 30 for 30 too :D However no prechallenge shopping for me :D I'm going to work with what I've already got.
Choosing the right 30 items is difficult thing :D I know I'm going to regret the choices in a week of time or so. :D

I am having a devil of a time! I am finding I am choosing all the same colors. This is my first 30 for 30 challenge and I want to make sure I pick the right things. I did purchase a couple of items right before I committed so, waiting for them to arrive! Any secrets you would like to share, as you are a seasoned pro.
