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.

Mmm Bop it's Monday!!!!



Good Morrow! I woke up this morning and tried to get my post together, only to be met by MANY technical difficulties. I have been called a "Luddite" by Richard and I have the equivalent of a black thumb when it comes to computers. I don't know how to do anything. Without Richard, I probably would not be doing this blahg, but I am learning as I go. I was trying to import the pictures I also had trouble taking, and I got the spinning rainbow pie icon on the screen. It twirled for a long time, then I finally called Richard and he helped me figure it out. There were other problems as well, but I'll spare you the details. Before this blog, I had never imported pictures onto the computer. Never. And we are well into the 21st century. I'm lame that way. A friend was trying to help me search for something on the web and when I was typing my query into the browser she said "You don't know what you're doing". She didn't mean to be mean, she was stating a fact. I don't know what I'm doing much of the time.

I did not do my week in review last night because I was very tired when I got home. I hope to do it tonight as there is nothing on my dance card. Today however, I am the luckiest person in the world because I was invited to sing back up vocals for Mason Reed on his new album! He is an incredibly talented and soulful musician and I am just so happy to be singing with him on this beautiful song he wrote.

I saw Mason sing the song at a screening of The Legends LaLa. It was so lovely I came home and sang it to HaHa all night and all day. I am very excited and I hope my voice doesn't crack! Also, I wanted to assure everyone, especially my mom, that everything is good with Richard and me. I was only joking when I mentioned him having his vasectomy in vain the other day. I am hopelessly devoted to Richard, for better or worse. Most of the time it is worse...

Kidding again!

Outfit: Since I am going to a studio I thought I would honor some legendary musicians. I found this shirt sometime in the 90's at a store called Conways in NYC.

Jeans - Gap from Goodwill.

Sweater - Same as yesterday.

Shoes - Sad but well loved.
