This challenge has allowed me to put new things together and has allowed me to see if it's time to give some things away. The latter is a benefit that came unexpectedly.

First, the top...My outfits with this top have not been my favorite. When I went to buy this top, I remember asking myself if I would be able to style it, and obviously I'm having a challenging time doing so. I know the top looks great tucked into something, but I wanted to see if I had other styling options with the top. I think my "generous" bust along with the bow and the a-box shape of the top makes it a challenge to style for my body. 

Now, the dress...My mom got this dress for me because I entered the Miss Black & Gold Pageant at school. When I got it in 2006, it fit much tighter. I couldn't zip the thing on my own. Since I've lost weight, it's loose and I'm not a fan of the shape.

I'm going to try to do a closet clean before Thanksgiving to get rid of things I don't wear. I think this may be the last time I wear this dress. I love the top too much to give it away. I think I'll just have to stick to wearing it tucked into something...most likely a skirt.


  1. Monique,

    You are so crappin' (believe me that is nice when I write it) cute! I have been looking through your outfits and I love what you out together. That is a mission for me next year to do better w/what I wear. Sweats and jeans have carried me a long way and it's time to change.

  2. I'd say that the top is a keeper, it looks great on you and actually this outfit is very cool. Love the tights with sandals.

  3. Yes, you are doing it! I would have went shopping 2 weeks into the challenge, lol! But, it's all about discipline ;)

  4. I think the outfit is cute, especially if you want to dress a little casual conservative...

    Your hair looks great!
