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.

Tourist Attractions!

As I said yesterday, we have friends visiting from New York, so I have been a little distracted. Today we went to the Santa Monica Pier, so we rushed out of the house and we were gone ALL day! When we got home I had to make dinner, so I am just sitting down now to post, and it is almost midnight in New York! I haven't even checked my email today!  Since I want to get this done before midnight in New York, I am going to just put up my outfit and move on!

When we left the house this morning it was very chilly and overcast, so I wore layers and and brought back-up in the form of a vest. Of course, it became boiling hot and I had on too many layers.


Jacket: Goodwill. Ann Taylor.

Sweater Vest: Same as yesterday (I got dressed in a hurry). Jay street. NYC. Old.

Black sweater: (Underneath) Cousin hand me down.

Jeans: From cousin. Gap.

Shoes: Predictions.

P.S. When I take my pictures at night, I just can't get them right! Please forgive this very bad post! However, it is similar to my very first outfit post: Today's Outfit.
