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.

Give 'em the Slip!

I have had a longstanding love affair with vintage slips and nightgowns. The delicate fabrics, the lace, and details have always made me swoon. I really, really adore them. However, I can't really go around town wearing my slips and nightgowns for all the world to see.

I can however, wear my slips and nightgowns all around my house. And I do. Sometimes. More often I can be found wearing sweat pants when I'm hanging at home on a Sunday. But today, 12 days before my final non-repeat-outfit, I am taking advantage of my slips, as well as my need to not repeat!

The rain made for lovely accompaniment to the day. I love the pitter-pat upon the roof.

I am wearing 3 slips all together, but you can only see two.

Under slip: Thrift store. Calvin Klein.

Pink tank: Old Navy.

Half slip: Thrift store.

Sweater: Cousin hand-me-down! Mossimo.

Shoes: None.


  1. I'm with you on vintage slips and nightgowns, loooooove to collect them and have fun wearing them around the house.

    Your "outfit" is muy bueno and the look of adoration on HaHa's face melts my snarky heart.
