My mother in law is so very generous and has bought me some beautiful things from Hidden Treasures in Topanga Canyon, California. She brought me the dress below when she visited on Easter weekend. I costumed it up quite a bit on the first wear but I think I'll do something cleaner and more simple next time I wear it. It was really cold outside!

so my clothing experiment is going fairly well, i think. i have cheated a couple of times. for one i shopped in ojai, which i previously revealed. secondly, i bought a pair of black ag angel cords because they were on sale and i love them so. in addition on the same website i bought the cords, in order to get free shipping i just had to spend a little bit more, and i got sucked in and bought a super girl tee. lastly, i cheated a few days ago after getting am email from victoria's secret that some dresses i've had my eye on were on sale plus free shipping. in a moment of weakness (and stress) i grabbed a few. and a bonus treat was a butterfly bikini from jcrew that i bought to celebrate passing my personal trainer exam. eek! there was one more, also last week i was at target and bought a little white baby doll top with pockets and buttons. oh my, i don't think i should go on, i just remembered i went to the city two weeks ago and at h&m with my friend amy and i was enchanted by the low prices and newness and companionship (excuse excuses!) so i picked up a dress, a pink tee, a pair of brown shorts and a grey and pink striped mini dress. i am so weak when it comes to shopping! oh man, i just recalled another purchase at the gap of a pair of black shorts. it was hot and all my shorts don't fit! i have a lot of size sixes and with a belt it's not baggy cute, it's baggy ridiculous when i need a zero.

well, after taking a loose count of the items in my closet i have yet to wear, i could probably go another four months (it's already been a bit over two).

over the last few days i've worn my amy tangerine bliss top, a grey glitter dumbo tee from disneyland, i bought about four years ago i think. and today i wore my white thermal (again) and my old navy grey v-neck hoodie sweater, which i also think i've worn before. i've had to become much more organized in my crazy closet since i am in it full on now.  i recently separated everything into sections of what i've worn from what i haven't.

i'm baring my soul and closet here and clearly i need help. i know, i know i'm only cheating myself! i really, really don't want to start over again. and i've worn quite a few things over again because they're personal favorites.

i do feel like this process is helpful. for the most part, i've been a little more creative with my purchases and outfits. wish me luck. because as you see i need it.

clothes!

yesterday i wore a fitted brown long sleeved v-neck tee from old navy, with a necklace i made, a white and fuscia scarf from urban outfitters, seven for all mankind jeans, and brown italian suede clogs.

today i'm wearing ag angel jeans, a white jcrew long sleeved tissue tee under a grey paul and joe for target wool sweater with a baby pink ballerina on it, and black camper sneaker mary jane heels.

for the last four days i've included something in my outfit that i've never worn before. that is why i'm doing this!

oh! and i told andy today there is one exception to my rule. if i need anything for boot camp i'm going ahead and buying it, because when it's 35 degrees outside i may need a puffy coat and some new gloves!

 i can't believe i need a puffy coat. i can't believe i'm going to wear a puffy coat. and my butt needs a puffy coat, literally, i come home after camp and it takes my booty the longest to thaw out.
