31 Dresses - Day 1

It's October 1st. There are 31 days in October and I'm going to wear a dress for every one of them. I've been really into personal style blogs as of late. When I counted my dresses recently and was chided by my husband for having too many, it gave me an idea.
Wear a dress a day for a month, blog about it, then ask my readers to decide if the dress should stay in my closet, be donated, or burned.

Let the fashion democracy begin!

Here's the first dress:

 The dress was purchased at Dottie May's Closet, in Arcata Ca. by my husband, just because he loves me. I don't think there was any occasion, perhaps I was having a bad day. The boots are from this wonderful vintage store called Shipwreck, in Eureka, and are my go to summer boots. I'm wearing a necklace also from Dottie May's by a Humboldt designer Robin Nelson, it's a square pendant with real Humboldt moss and the word "grace" in tiny letters. Grace is my middle name and favorite concept.  The vest is from Crossroads. 
I love this dress. So I'm starting off the month strong.  Hope you all stay tuned for my next 30 dresses.
Some blogs that inspire me:
The Starship Narcissus - I liked this girl's blog before I found out she was the lead singer of Cake's little sister

Special thanks to my photographer, Emily Sutter!

Great concept. I love dresses, and outfit challenges and I see you are up for it.

Thanks for the mention, chica. Most appreciated!

Would love to see some more close-ups, especially of that necklace! Sounds really pretty!

Well, I was lucky enough to see the whole ensemble in person and it looks fabulous! Definitely a keeper...as you know.
This is a favorite blog of mine you may already know about, but it's timely:

It's well worth digging into the archives. Check out the "Secret Lives of Dresses" in the right margin...great short stories told from the point of view of the dress.

Such a great idea! Maybe this will inspire me to do the same- I'm more of a pants and top knda girl :)
