The Pretty Life Girls: Results and opinions

Results and opinions

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

First off, let me thank you all for the overwhelming response to the poll post. You sure know how to give a girl some information. I mean, seriously. As for my opinions... I will share them. But as a preface, I need you to know that these are my opinions. That just means I wouldn't wear them... that doesn't mean you shouldn't. Plus, as lots of you said, its all about styling. The right styling of any of these things might just make me a believer.
  • Maxi dress: Of course these all depend on body types and styling, but for the most part, I think maxi dresses give the illusion of really long legs and are super fun for summer.
  • Shorts over tights: I love it... on other people. I think its classy and creative and a perfect way to mix fun colors and patterns.
  • Flare (FLARE!) pants: I'll go ahead and say that I am just not into the enormous flares. I'm more into timeless pieces, and I think these are on their way out sooner rather than later. Also, I really like my shoes to not be hidden under giant pant legs.
  • Lace-up boots: I'm just going to say no. 
  • Fur vests: Currently being in the mindset of having a workable closet and re-mixable clothing, I would probably give this one a no, simply for functionality. Other than that, I have no problem.
  • Large, fake glasses: I just don't understand wearing glasses if you don't need glasses. Also, I think they hide important facial features, and never have they improved anyone's appearance. And while some people look super cute in them, overall I am going to say no go.
That's all I have to say about that. Thanks for indulging me, and for your input! I love to get a little fashion debate going!

Now, is anyone else totally over 30 for 30? Maybe I am just because I am like the only person in the world who did it for 30 CONSECUTIVE days, which makes it the most maddening project ever. Needless to say, tomorrow is day 30, and I could not be happier. Except now I am afraid that I will never want to wear my 30 chosen items ever again. See days 27-29 below.



  1. I think the bar chart really shows the diversity between bloggers! Loved that the results were really mixed.

    Great outfits S. Especially day 28! x

  2. I am so over the 30x30. And I feel like you can tell with my outfits. Might just have to do what you did here and post a few days in a row in one post. I've worn a 30x30 outfit everyday just not taken the pictures, might be time for some back posting.

    I agree with you opinions... but I love my lace up boots! Still working up the courage to wear my maxi skirt though.

    LOVE day 28!

  3. I have worn my 30 items everyday. For the 29 days. I will be happy to have my clothes back. I will say 30 for 30 made it a little bit easier to get dress in the morning.

  4. Ah yes. The first time I did it, I forced myself to take pictures and post every day for 30 days. I was totally burnt out.
    This time, I have worn 30 for 30 clothes everyday, but I loosened up my picture schedule. Made it much easier on myself.

  5. Hi! My mom shared your blog with me - I LOVE it! I am totally subscribing :) Come stop by mine too if you would like!

  6. I'm so just gonna steal outfit 29 right outta your closet. That whole ensemable is perfect. I have actually done this 30 for 30 consecutively, which means tomorrow is the end. And how am I going to celebrate? Half-off day at Salvation Army!

  7. This was my first time around doing the 30 for 30 and yes, I am SO over it! I have learned a lot, don't get me wrong, but I eagerly await the addition of new spring styles.

    Love you style, btw. Looking forward to your post remix OOTD.

    Style in General

  8. i did my 30 for 30 in 30 consecutive days and i am SO tired!!! i can't wait to wear some other things. i might go on a 30 day strike of the 30 pieces i had for this challenge.

    love the opinions. thanks for sharing!

  9. I love the 30x30 but I would miss my other clothes so much. I know you got shoes for a gift, and now you get to wear them!

  13. Hey, I just wanted to jump in really quick and say that I think people might have misunderstood what you meant with the "big fake glasses" - I was thinking of those enormous old-Hollywood style SUNglasses, which a lot of people still like a lot (including me). The fake regular glasses trend? So over it! Especially as a nearly blind, real glasses wearer - why oh why would anybody do that to themselves?
    Love your blog! Wish I would have won the houndstooth give-away. :(
    Ah well, next time! :)
    [Sorry I had a typo in my previous post]

  14. hey hey hey, i have been doing 30 for 30 for all the days. i am tired too!

  15. I just stumbled across your blog and I love it. I'm getting married and living with my sister now, and it's much more fun to have 2 closets rather than one! Fabulous outfits ladies :)


You must know how much we love validation. Bless you.
