Dress #31 - The Last Dress

Well friends, we've reached the end of this little fashion project. This is the last of the 31 Dresses. It's been a fun project and I've enjoyed the challenge, but I'm excited to wear skirts and pants again.
Please continue voting on all the dresses (full list of dresses on the above "31 Dresses" tab). I'll publish the official burn/donate list in mid-November.


 Feeling reflective after a month of dresses and photo shoots. Special thanks to my darling husband, Luke, for this shoot on our drive home from Humboldt. I love this stop just after Confusion Hill on 101, in the summer we stop here to play in the river.


The trees are really big.
Seriously, huge! These trees are insane!

 This dress is a little knit number from Crimson and Clover, purchased last year for $1. Teal Urban Outfitter pumps, $10, Volcom monster print hoodie, purchased so long ago I forget the price and black leggings.
Here are some more shots from yesterday's Halloween Festivities, since we didn't do anything halloweeny today.




Tomorrow, I'll get up, make coffee and then wear whatever I want. Maybe a dress,  maybe a skirt, who knows? You may never know, unless you see me tomorrow, because I no longer answer to my readers for my daily outfits.
I'll still do style posts, don't worry, and I always welcome feedback and comments.

The next big adventure/project begins December 1st; an entire year of thrifting. No new clothes for 365 days.
I want to encourage fellow bloggers and my readers to take up the challenge with me. Maybe no new clothes for a season? Maybe only buying fair trade coffee for a month. You make up the terms, but let me know so I can mention it on my blog.

So, this month I'm stocking up on underwear, socks and tights.

I love it! Grandpa Luke and a unicorn! I am looking forward to your next challenge. And you know what my commitment is! I am only giving handmade gifts for Christmas as part of the Orange Christmas movement (thanks for the link love on your blog)!

Thank you so much for the "follow"! Your dress project looks like it was so cool. I'm sad that I'm just finding you AFTER it's over.

I'll have to snoop around a bit and check it out. :)
Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Oooh yes, my pleasure Lena, after all our projects meld together quite nicely.
Molly, I'm glad you found me. Please do go through and vote on all the dresses! Voting's open for at least another week.
