Oy, children. How are you today? Well my day was pretty unbelievable. Like literally, not to be believed. So rather than try and go into it, I’d rather just cut to the good stuff.
It is still THEME WEEK here in Closet365 land. All week I am hauling out a few of my favorite things. Namely, DRESSES! in celebration of a very special blog launch coming up! This week I’m taking the opportunity to introduce you to my new venture: ALLTHEPRETTYDRESSES.COM. My new baby is about to launch, but while we’ve got time to kill, I thought I’d introduce you to the new challenge one piece at a time. Or list, as the case may be.
So. I’ve already told you about my plan to read 100 great novels and watch 100 great movies before my 30th birthday. But did you know that I am also planning on listening to 100 great albums? Oh yes. Over the course of the next two years, I’ll be working my way through the VH1 list of 100 greatest albums. The list is now up at the blog, so feel free to check it out. Fueled by the used section at Amazon.com and a few generous friends with CD burners, I’m going to finally listen to all those great classic artists I’ve always wanted to check out, but never really gotten to. Possibly because I was busy listening to too much age-inappropriate bubble gum pop. But whatever. Really, just whatever. It’s time to finally form a context for what makes truly great music. This is one of my favorite parts of the project. A new great album every week for the next two years. I think it’s going to be amazing.
Hey how about a dress?
It’s baaaaaack. How many of you guys remember this old thing? Clear back in April of last year, my theme week consisted of wearing this same dress all seven days in seven different stylings. You’d actually be amazed at how much you can diversify a garment like this. It was actually a lot of fun, save for the part where I got sick of wearing the same. dress. every. day. But since then, she hasn’t seen any action and I thought it to be a crying shame. Look how cute! I have to say this dress is one of my favorite thrifting finds, ever. Ten dollars at ARC, Fossil Brand, in new condition and just look. No. LOOK at the print. It’s simply awesome.
For today, I actually styled the dress an eighth way compared to the theme week versions. Nothing too new or exciting, but I added some cream accessories and a big old pop of blue to draw from the print. It was so weird yet awesome to be wearing my dress again. It brought back fond memories of early last year and of the project in general. Feels strange to say, but the Closet365 Project will live on in my heart for a long time. I learned so many small lessons and had so many fun day in and day out experiences because of it. Not to worry though. I carry my torch (and my dresses) on to the next big adventure.
Stay with me for the rest of the week as I style yet more of my favorite dresses and introduce you to the rest of All The Pretty Dresses! And hey! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway before Monday night!
