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.

Postponing the Post!

I have been sitting in front of the computer for an hour thinking about posting, but not posting. Let's call it: "Procrastiposting". The truth is, I am tired and I don't have anything illuminating to pontificate about. Another truth is that it is difficult to post everyday, especially after a late night "at the office". We didn't get home until 8: 30 and the kids didn't get to bed until 9. I could have fallen asleep with them, but I had to do my post...

So, short and sweet today, okay?

Outfit: I got dressed this morning with the intention of changing into my newly rediscovered sparkly bell-bottoms. However, as it got closer to the evening activities I realized that jeans were fine. And yet, this is one of the reasons I wanted to do this project: The Jean Trap. Wearing jeans everyday, just because it's easy... Oh well, I'll try to avoid jeans tomorrow! 

Shirt: Goodwill. James Perse. This is the first time I've worn this shirt this year!

Sweater: Hand me down from cousin. Mossimo.

Jeans: Goodwill. Gap.

Shoes: Predictions.
