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.

I was back in science again, and the Thursday schedule is brutal! There are back to back classes from 8:30 to 12:30, with no break! Luckily one of the groups was lagging and I ran to the bathroom. We worked on the periodic table of elements and it was a lot of fun. The kids were great. Later in the day, another class was working on claymation movies they made about the food chain. Pretty awesome stuff!

After I made Charlie a tuna sandwich, because I did not have time to make one this morning, I only had about half an hour for lunch. I did not have time to do my post, as I thought I would. Even now, I don't have time. I should be making dinner...

Okay. In light of the fact that it is late I will keep this brief. I got home and the light was working against me. I imported pictures and you couldn't see the black shirt because it blended in with the tree trunk. I moved inside and those were just as mediocre. I need the light! I also realized that I am not a huge fan of this outfit, so I had to psych myself out to pose. In the first one, I'm pretending to sing "boys, boys, crazy boys" from West Side Story. In the bottom photo I decided to show you how the majority of my pictures look because I am the least photogenic person ever. At any rate, I am happy that America's Next Top Model is back on because I might get some pointers, and Andre Leon Talley is the new judge! Peace out!


Mock Shirt/Sweater: From Cousin. Forever 21.

Skirt: Salvation Army. High school find. I like the sparkle and the zig-zag action. I thought it was a nice compliment to the dots on the shirt.

Shoes: American Eagle.

Here I was trying to look like I was "walking". Yikes!


  1. First of all, yay for ANTM! Second, I was Anita in my HS's production of Westside Story, so thanks for letting us in on the song you were singing for inspiration. Third, I think you look like a sexy secretary...

  2. Love this outfit. What's your problem with it?

  3. Anita!!! I wish I could have seen you! The best! I don't know, maybe too black and white?
