Goodbye Full Closet...











Occasion:

This is my last outfit post before I participate in Kendi's 30 for 30 Challenge. I am excited and a bit nervous and I have already written out a bunch of possible outfits to help me with my remixing:) I will miss the rest of my closet while I do this challenge, but the goal is to be able to appreciate my full closet when the challenge is complete.

Here is another Shabbos outfit from last Friday night. If you missed my first Shabbos post, you can find it here with an explanation of Shabbos and how we celebrate. As I said there, I am trying to document my Shabbos ensembles since dressing up in our finest clothes and looking all fancy-schmancy is one of the ways we, as Jews, honor the Sabbath.

I got this sequin tank from the LOFT on super sale...we're talkin', like, $10...SCORE! Since it's pretty flashy, I knew that I wanted to go with black for the rest of the outfit. I paired it with my shiny black pencil skirt and asymmetrical zipper sweater. To bring out the sparkly nature of the sequins, I wore a gold chain necklace and paired the outfit with some patterned fishnets Lastly, to add a bit of casual-ness (yes, I am aware that is not a word...I really like making up new words and trying to pass them off as real:)), I wore my (LOVE them) suede McAlister wedge booties.

Outfit:

Black Undershirt: Elzee

Tank: LOFT

Sweater: J.CREW

Skirt: c/o Kosher Casual

Tights: Target

Necklace: Banana Republic

Shoes: J.CREW
