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.

Tay-Tay and K.K.!

A little angel, named Aunt Janine, let me sleep in until 11 today!!! Yay!!! I got to bed at 1:30 a.m., after my rockin' night, and I was pooped after a hectic past few days.

Sometimes I am so tired I can actually feel fatigue in my bones...

Anyway, It is the birthday of two of the loveliest ladies I know! My sister, Kim, and my genetic half- sister-a.k.a.-cousin Taylor! They were born on the same day in the SAME year! Some qualities they share, besides being related to me are:

Beauty, intelligence, kindness, humor, courage, and just down-right amazing-ness!

I could write a book about all of the things these ladies have done over the years, because they have done a lot! Oregon Shakespere Festival, a one woman show, moved to Japan, single mom at 23, gone back to school (they both did that one). For the rest, you'll have to guess!

Can't write a lucid post, of late. Writer's block, or post-traumatic-post syndrome?...

Happy Birthday little sisters!!!! You're the greatest!!!

Outfit:

Print shirt: Friend hand-me-down.

Under dress: Goodwill. Old Navy.

Skirt: Salvation Army. High school purchase!

Shoes: American Eagle.
