[june 2011 fashion]
In a light bulb moment (some call these flashes madness) I came up with the *brilliant* idea to also sketch my outfits. I added notes to describe colors and textures my meager drawing skills could not capture. I also added details about where I got the clothes, and, if I remembered, how much I paid for them. It helped me see that many of the items in my closet are hand-me-downs (from Mom or Jaxs) or gifts (like the suede jacket from Dad and scarves from family and friends), or purchased on sale.

Result: I'm happy with the way I dress! I feel good in and about what's in my closet, and this is a project I'd do again, maybe in the winter, or maybe during a trip. While continuing to edit, I will try harder to pull out some less-worn garments. I just did laundry, too -- including hand washing and ironing -- so have a lot more choices at the moment. And I just scored a couple items at the thrift stores. But more on that later!
What's in your closet these days?
