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.

Today, a post in pictures.


Shirt: I Heart Guts.

Skirt: Forever 21.

Sweater: Hand me down from FRESH friend.
H &M. It is freezing in the convention center! I don't know how the girls in bikinis do it!

Shoes: Fit Flops!

Pollyanna fancied this guy in the skirt. He was very agreeable!

Me with the man of my 9th grade dreams, He-Man! I'm not kidding. I watched He-Man battle Skeletor every day!

Below is an I Heart Guts customer who wanted to show us her elaborate costume made all the more special by her black heart!
