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.

Into the Woods!




I am literally running out the door to see a play presented to the Alumni of the High School I attended. It is Into the Woods, one of my favorite productions! I am hoping other people dress up because this is L.A. and you just never know. I am bringing my rain boots just in case!

Outfit:

Maroon Shirt: I found this at a Thrift Store and fell in love with the details. It is by Antik Batik.

Velvet Jacket: I found this at Forever 21. The fabric and cut drew me in.

Tweed Skirt: Thrift store.

Tights: Hue

Shoes: American Eagle from Payless. These are the most comfortable heels ever. I have worn them to many wedding gigs and my feet never hurt.

This outfit is all about texture! Happy Saturday!
