this week's remix was a hard one for me, and i'll tell you why. megan picked the item this week. it is a cute white tunic-y type top that she bought on a whim at the salvation army for $3. she says she bought it because it was cheap and she was in a "shopping mood". her words. and that made me laugh, because i have honestly never known megan to not be in a shopping mood. anyway, when she tried it on, once she got home, she wasn't head over heels for the top. so, she did what we do. she threw it into the remix to see what we could come up with. now, i think the shirt is pretty cute, but the reason this challenge was so hard for me was because once i saw the shirt i had an amazing idea for an outfit. alas, megan had taken her photos first and when i checked our flickr account to see what she had come up with (i wasn't cheating. i just had an inkling...) i saw my outfit staring back at me! honestly! okay, okay. i suppose it was megan's outfit staring back, but it was very similar to the idea that i had for the shirt. great minds, right? and you know when you have a vision of a brilliant outfit in your head and you can't seem to break away from that idea and nothing else seems like it is ever going to work? no? just me? well, that is how i felt. so now i was left scrambling through my closet, hoping for some styling miracle to take place. well, i can assure you that no miracles took place in my closet, styling or otherwise, but i did manage to come up with something. lucky for my husband who was waiting for me, forever, to take my photos! sorry, jim! sorry for making you wait, too. at long last, here's the remix...
