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.

Sunny Sunday

Today, I will fight my urge to blab on and on about my pitzicaca life, and I will post a bunch of pictures. The pants I am wearing today, I believe I wore last weekend as well. I mentioned that they were previously a jumpsuit that I cut. Here is a picture of said jumpsuit:

I'm kind of sad I cut it. It had little anchors on the straps. I think I was about eight months pregnant here.


Sweater: This sweater was a hand me down from my cousin. It is Mossimo.

Shirt: I found this shirt at Salvation Army years ago when I was a fan of showing off my midriff. I think it was a shirt that was turned into a onesie and it cracked me up. If it was made for a baby originally, the person who designed it had no idea how big babies are...

Pants: See above

One more Photo for the road:
These are the hand made stuffed animals I mentioned my best friend created for each of the children before they were born. I told you she is talented! Her Etsy site is:

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday. I thank you very much for looking at my BLAHG!!!! Oh! I inventoried my drawers. I'll have to write about that tomorrow!!!
