Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!
Oh, my goodness! I cannot believe it–the J.Crew Challenge is finally back! It’s been a full YEAR now…phew, time sure does fly when you are having fun *wink*
Before I reveal the very first outfit of the brand new J.Crew Challenge tomorrow, I want to give a little info on how many pieces I am going to be working with this year + how many outfits I have planned + a brief throwback to some of the hottest outfits from the 30 Day J.Crew Challenge! Ah–we have lots to do, so let’s quit our lollygagging and get to work *wink*
For this year’s J.Crew Challenge, I will be working with 16 items (that’s 4 more than last year) to create a variety of lovely looks. It is going to be so fabulous, and I cannot wait to share all of the awesome outfits with y’all!
For all of the new readers out there, here are the goals of the VIP J.Crew Challenge:
- Encourage y’all to invest in quality and versatile clothing items and accessories.
- Inspire y’all to get your money’s worth out of your apparel.
Now, let’s take a look back at five of the hottest J.Crew outfits from last year’s 30 Day J.Crew Challenge. Whoo hoo!
Hey, y’all! It is that time of year again–closet cleaning time! I have been going through and donating my clothes to various charitable organizations since I was a little girl. Every spring and fall, my mom and I took out everything in my closet, and she would ask me if I still wore it…if I still wanted it…or…if I wanted to get rid of it. Staying true to this fabulous tradition, I went through my wardrobe and gathered items to donate–which is always bunches of fun! I really wanted to donate my fashions to a local organization–usually I donate to the Salvation Army–but this time I really wanted it to be more personal.
I had my clothes bagged and ready to take to a drop off box when I found out about Moody High School’s clothes closet on Facebook. BINGO! *LIGHT BULB* It was perfect–I just knew it was fate! I was so excited to give the six black garbage bags full of my fashions to the brand new clothes closet at Moody High School. It was such an amazing and heart-warming experience, and I encourage all of you to closet clean and donate some of YOUR clothes to a local charity!

Oh, and while I was doing my annual closet clean…I stumbled upon this fabulous gold sweater! I forgot all about it–I bought it about a year ago and the tags were still on it! Fabulous! Anyway, today’s VIP OOTD is all about mixing some Grand Haul items with the snazzy cord sweater I found in the back of my closet! Whoo hoo! Yay for closet cleaning:)
