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.

Host Party!

I thought I reached a new low yesterday with my horrid outfit, but today, oh today, I did something that I've never done before! It started with having to take my aunt home at 8:15 in the morning. I did not have time to get dressed, so I simply put a jacket over my pajamas. Richard then said: "You have to put this on your blog." I said, "Do I really have to?" He said that I did. When I got home I realized that I had to get some groceries for dinner since we are having house guests for a few days. I did not feel like getting dressed, so I wore my pajamas to the store! I have never, ever worn pajamas to the store, but I guess there's a first time for everything. If I did not have to worry about repeating outfits, I would have just thrown on some jeans and a top as I did later in the day. But, I had to make sure it was not a top and jeans I had worn before.

I still have to write about the fabulous day I had on Saturday, but I have to put Hollis to bed and I cannot right now. Because of Passover and being behind schedule I had to take suspect pictures, but it's better than nothing I guess! I've included a picture of how I left the house this morning only to return and walk out to the grocery store! Talk about gauche!

Outfit:

This is my stepson trying to sabotage my photo session!


Cream Top (under layer): I got this at a thrift store in New York. It is a midriff bearing top and I really only wear it to bed or under things. When I was a younger woman, I would wear it in the summer on occasion. I wore it to bed last night!

Blue Sweater Vest (second layer): Got this on Jay Street in New York. Also seen in Science is Real!

Pink Belt: Thrift store purchase. Not sure where. Very old.

Shoes: Predictions.







Here is my morning glory:
