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.

Brown Town!

Brown is my new black. Well, actually, I haven't been into wearing black since my early days in New York. I don't even own a pair of black pants anymore, although I used to wear them all the time. These days I love color, and prints, and brown. I love me some brown.

I think brown perfectly compliments so many colors. It is warm and strong, and it reminds me of chocolate.

And coffee.

And skin.

I am down with brown. And I have 99 days to go!

Please excuse the short post. I was literally falling asleep when I wrote this.

Outfit:

Ruffle top: Goodwill.

Purple shirt: Forever 21.

Brown pants: Goodwill. I.N.C.

Shoes: Predictions.

  2. Totally "down with brown." Couldn't agree more, it's an awesome color. Brown & turquoise, brown & pink...two of the best combos ever.

  4. I'm down with brown too. Had to shop on Amazon to get some lovely brown socks to go with my brown cords. BTW, I love those pants you have on.
