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.

Halloween!!!

Another busy day at Casa Espy. But are we different than any other urban family? I think not. We are living in a city of industrious and connected folk. They have plans, obligations, families, friends. They get around, and so do we.

We had two parties today. Both were lovely. We had a good time. The kids came home late, so we'll see how they fare in the morning. I skipped out on the trick-or-treating this year because I had some work to do. I went with the kids the last two years in a row without Richard, so I figured it was his turn. I missed out on HaHa's first trick-or-treating, though.

Oh well, I guess that's life in the big city!

Also, I promise to write about my writing class soon!

Outfit:

When I looked at my photos, I realized that I unconsciously dressed like a bumble bee, I think. I guess I was inspired by HaHa!

Shirt: Goodwill. Anne Klein II.

Sweater: Thrift store.

Pants: Big Sunday. Bu by Malibu jeans. I am going to have to get rid of these when this project is over. They really don't fit well.





Shoes: These were a hand-me -down from my friend's mom! Lucky me!

  1. Please tell Charlie and Leo that they looked great for Halloween. Hollis looks as cute as ever and she looked like she was really having a good time. I also love the faces on the pumpkins. I hope you got to see some of the rally in Washington with John Stewart and Colbert. It was fabulous, fantastic, inspiring, entertaining and I wish I had been there. All the things he was advocating is how I feel. Peace out!
