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.

Two A.M.!

I'm back. I'm tired. I'm just hangin' up the phone after an-hour-and-a-half conversation with my Fresh friend, and it's 1:20 in the morning! She has to go to work in a few hours. And go to workout... What is she thinking?!

Actually, what am I thinking? I have to drive my mom to the airport in 4 hours. Okay. Maybe I need to get my pictures up and call it a day. Why am I such a procrastinator? Why? Why? Why?

Since I'm pressed for time, I will simply put up a few pictures from the last two New York days. One day soon, I promise to write a decent post!

Outfit:

Lace top: Hand me down from friend. I'm wearing it backwards for the second time.

Grey Tank: Urban Outfitters. It's at least 15 years old. I think I'll need a new one next year. It's starting to fray.

Jeans: Hand me down from cousin. Gap.

Shoes: Goodwill. Kensie Girl.
I love the woman's face above HaHa...  (Top Photo)                   

HaHa with my good friend Khaled. (Middle photo)

HaHa being the social butterfly that she appears to be. In the bottom picture she was saying"Hi" to the woman hawking sunglasses at the airport! The woman loved her. Of course!
