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.

Today's Outfit

Today is New Year's Day and we are staying at home. I'm keeping it simple. Jeans purchased at Goodwill in Santa Monica on 6th Street. They are GAP Curvy. Sweater from Bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker. I bought it on sale for $5.99 when there was a Steve and Barry's in Santa Monica Place. I was pregnant and must have thought that looking like a giant bumble bee was a good idea!
