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.

Superbowl Smackdown!




Go Saints!!!!! Of course, I know nothing about football and The Superbowl is usually the only game I watch all year. Besides my son Leo's. Since it's Superbowl Sunday, I figured no one would be looking at my blog, so I decided to wear the second most hideous shirt in my closet. I think I have one other one that tops it. This one is going to the donation pile soon. I truly don't know what I saw in it. Maybe it was the $4.99 price tag on sale from $17.99 at Target. I think I was there to buy a juicer, but of course I had to stop in the clothing section. This was before the new year and I am happy that my One Closet mandate will save me from shirts like this, and myself!

Outfit:

Shirt: Mossimo from Target.

Sweater: Clothing swap. J. Crew.

Jeans: From Big Sunday fundraiser

Shoes: Fit Flops

This is our feral rescue cat, Rusty. Leo originally named him Coco Butter Formula, which I really liked, but he changed it. He is very sweet and really wants to live inside with us, but we are allergic. He never harms Hollis, even when she is pestering him. He has started giving her the cold shoulder though.
