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.

Aunt D!

I had a wonderful day with my family in celebration of my amazing Aunt Diane! It is so wonderful to be with people who have helped take care of you, influenced you, and inspired you in a myriad of ways. People who love you no matter what, in spite of, and just because. People who understand you, who make you laugh, and people who rock! I am lucky to have many of these people in my life. Blood relatives and friends alike!

On a different note, Richard ate so much garlic yesterday that when I walked into the back room upon arriving home, it smelled like a deli! And he was upstairs! Frightening. The stench that emanated from his body was so horrible that I had to sleep in a different room. I'm not kidding. Hor-i-ble. This was first time since we've been together that I have opted to sleep in a different room. Actually, it might be the second time. I think I slept in a different room when I was sick once. Once. Okay. On that note, let me get to my outfit!

Outfit:

Dress: Forever 21.

Skirt: Goodwill. Forever 21.

Shoes: Mossimo.
