Birth of a project

I was getting dressed for a friend's birthday party and I didn't know what I was going to put on my body. I looked in my closet and it seemed empty, unpromising. I've had these moments before; everything was old, ill-fitting, or blah. I thought to myself, "Ugh! I have NOTHING to wear!" Then I began rifling through my closet and saw a forgotten shirt I loved and many more, and I realized I was crazy. I had plenty to wear, and plenty to choose from. My closet was FULL of treasures! At that moment I decided I would take a year to explore my closet and to add NOTHING new to my wardrobe.

I would create a NEW outfit for each day in order to maximize my wardrobe and shake up my style.

Basically, I would try to "snap out" of my fashion rut, and appreciate what I have.

It was my New Years' project:
One Closet, One Year.

Dentist Bound!

After waking up before the crack of dawn, I got back in to bed and slept until 9. I jumped up, realizing I had an appointment at 10. Since it involved dental work, and possible discomfort, I opted for comfort in the clothing department.

Jeans - Big Sunday

Sweater - Cousin Hand me down

Shirt - Hand painted by the amazing art teacher at the school I hope to work at again in the fall. Each leaf was made by students in my class last year.

  1. My fave is that shirt though I'm sad you couldn't see it under the sweater. I think you upcycled it if I remember correctly. Perhaps you're actually my style icon. I think you may be.
