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.

Progress Reports!

Howdy. Glad you stopped by. By the way, I have 52 days left! Pretty crazy, huh?
Almost a year has passed.

Just like that.

Outfit:

Maroon shirt: Goodwill. Antik Batik.

Leopard Wrap top: I got this many, many years ago at a store called Le Chateau on the Corner of Bleeker and Broadway in New York. My co-workers gave me a gift certificate for my birthday.

Jeans: Goodwill. Gap.

Sweater: Friend hand-me-down. H & M.


Shoes: American Eagle. I was going to wear heels, but it just seems so impractical working with first graders...
