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.

Stage Fright!

Tomorrow I am doing something that I am quite nervous about: performing a musical theater piece I am not completely comfortable with in front of my whole school! Luckily it is a short piece so the torture will only last a few minutes. I wouldn't be doing it if not for the very talented and inspirational man I'm performing with. I guess as long as I remember my lines, I'll be okay.

Here's hoping!

When I picked HaHa up I noticed that she was wearing a super-cute outfit. I asked Richard if he picked it out, and he said that she's pretty much been picking out her outfits on her own for several weeks. He says it takes them a lot longer to get out of the house now.

Go figure. She's definitely a girl!

Anyway, since I am singing at the crack of dawn, I should get myself to bed!


When I got home and took my pictures I had yet another flash of "I've worn this before." And yet, I have not. However, it is a very Shelayna outfit, and I've definitely used this color palate before. I love me some pink and gray!

Shirt: Forever 21. I got this when I worked in admissions.

Sweater: Hand me down from cousin. Forever 21.

Skirt: Goodwill. Zara.

Slip: Thrift store.

Shoes: Mossimo.                                     The L.A. sky at dusk.

  1. It's a very pretty outfit.
    I wish I could see Ha Ha picking out her own outfit. It's so sweet that Richard has the patience to let her.
