And the winner is...

The green snake cardigan and the white ruffled blouse!
It was close race with the purple ruffled top, winning only by one vote. That was fun - I think I'll poll more outfits in the future!

Day Seven: Black Pencil Skirt
Last worn: September 2009
Green snake cardi

So my Style Challenge of wearing items that haven't been worn in a long time, or ever has come to an end. I think I did quite well, wearing a total of 12 neglected items. I think next time I feel like my wardrobe needs some refreshing, rather than heading out to the mall I should just dig around in the back of my closet and the bottoms of drawers.*

I wont argue with the results of the poll, black and white is classic, and the snake cardi is bright, patterned and a bit quirky. I adore my camera necklace and seem to want to wear it with everything.


I really love this pencil skirt, particularly the double direction zipper pulls, so I can unzip the bottom, just a bit. Why I've been ignoring it, I simply do not know, but now that I've got two other outfits planned out, I can't even try to make excuses!

The Rundown
Black Pencil Skirt H&M - White Ruffled Blouse Gap - Green Snake Cardigan Express - Argyle Fishnet Tights TJMaxx - Cutout t-strap Pumps Kenneth Cole Reaction - Camera Necklace Etsy - Earrings TJMaxx

*Nevermind. Knowing I have lots of great items already in my closet is never going to stop me from buying more.
