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.

270 Days!

It's been a looooong weekend and I am spent! Today I went from wedding brunch, to band rehearsal, to the annual party my school throws! Wow! What a day.

And it was fun.

That's about all I have in me right now. Tomorrow is another day.

  1. As long as I get to see updates of the kids I'm good.

    I'll call you later. It was a busy crazy weekend. I'm spent too.

  2. Shelayna - I just want to tell you how inspirational your blog has been to me. I'm really challenging myself to find different combinations of tired pieces of clothing.
    Thank you! - Emily
