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.

The Wonder of Learning!

Some days are meant for jumping out of bed and getting on the road! I am volunteering for Leo's school this morning. They are sponsoring an exhibit called "The Wonder of Learning". I am helping to install it. It will focus on The Reggio-Emilia approach to education and the "100 languages of Children"! The exhibit has been traveling the States and now it will be in will be in Santa Monica!

I am dressed for function.

Shirt: This is from Prince's fan club from the Lotus Flower tour. I thought this would be a fine occasion for wearing it.

Sweater: Old Navy Maternity

Vest: Eastern Mountain Sports. When I lived in New York, this was a staple.

Jeans: Hand me down from cousin.

I will do a week in review later when I get home. Happy Sunday!!!!!
