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.

Tonight I went out to celebrate my very sweet friend Aman's birthday! His party was at a cool little spot on the Sunset strip called Libertine. There was an awesome band and they played some great songs including a rockin' cover of MGMT's Electric Feel. I really love that song. It is good.

So, after a lovely night out, I arrived at home at 1:30 to a room full of men playing poker in my living room. I went into the back room to do my post, and I promptly fell asleep. Now it is 2:37 a.m. and I have to decide: decent post, or bed?

I think I am going to go with bed. I am so, so sleepy. Long day at The Espy compound.

By the way, at this time, 2:47 a.m., the boys are STILL playing poker. And it's a work night. Oh, well...

Tomorrow is another day!


Top: This is a vintage dress I found in a thrift store long ago. The hem is a little short for my taste, so I decided to throw a skirt over it.

Skirt: George.

Shoes: American Eagle.
