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.

Staving off Sickness!

I started feeling a little achy last night, and woke up feeling bad. I stayed in bed a long time, made some chicken soup, and am nursing a hot toddy as I write.

I feel better than I did earlier, and with a little luck, I'll wake up feeling back to normal. With all of the sickness that has been through our house of late, I'm surprised I managed to last this long

Maybe I was waiting for Christmas!

Teena Marie passed away today. She was a major musical presence in my house growing up!  For a thoughtful tribute read, r.i.p. lady t. 

She will certainly be missed.


Sweater: Cousin hand-me-down. Mossimo.

Pants: Goodwill. This is the Express "Editor" pant. I like the cut, but I feel that these are slightly tight. Richard said they look "fine", and that I just "need different underwear". I guess by that he means a girdle. Maybe they will fit better after the holiday season is through!

Still Rockin' the skirt
Shoes: Friend hand-me-down. Nine West.


  1. Kids know what's good. They find the thing they love then wear it everyday if they can get away with it. Sort of goes against your whole blog idea. They are about not changing it up at all. I guess as a grown up that gets too easy and boring.

  2. Not to mention stinky! They're a little fresher than we!
