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.

A Fall Day!

After the bizarre weather we've had these past few weeks, it was nice to have an actual fall day! However, it was chilly, and I spent almost the entire day wearing my jacket and scarf. I had three meetings today, which is uncommon, but made for an interesting day.

It also made for a long day, and when I finally left, I was tired. The boys and girl were also spent, and our last hours together before bed time were harried and very exhausting.

I am hoping we all get some good shut-eye tonight.

Outfit:

Brown shirt: Hand me down from friend. Mossimo.

Knit vest: I got this many years ago at a store on Jay Street in NYC. Everything in it was knit and very cool!

Jeans: Goodwill. Gap.


Shoes: Wanted.

  2. Geez Louise she's cute! Maybe I should try to get some baby modeling auditions for her in November and December. At least one of us would be getting some work! :)
