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.

The Groundlings!

I'm leaving to go to The Groundlings in mere moments to see a friend perform. The performance begins at 10 and tomorrow is the final day of summer school! I am a little worried that I will look bedraggled and busted in the morning, but I probably won't be seeing most of these parents ever again. So who cares if I look like yesterday's bread?

I guess the upside of aging is that you care less about how other people see you. At least I do. I feel sad that I wasted my youth feeling ugly and hating the way I looked. Now, I've accepted my flaws and imperfections, and I think I'm alright... But I'm old!...

Ah, the ironies of life!

Outfit:

Shirt: Hand me down from cousin. Forever 21.

Skirt: Thrift store. This used to be a dress and I cut it for some reason. Silly me!!!

Shoes: Predictions!

  3. All right, when you're 98 and I'm 67, we'll talk!!!

    Babies, eh? Believe me, I'm old. When you have two assistants that are sophomores in college, you're old!
