Spending the day in Bellingham with Joe. Here we are walking to the little store by his apartment to buy Vitamin Water, potato chips for me, and lotto tickets for him. We saw two deer about fifty feet from us in the other direction.(Notice the sweater again. Ever buy something and get a little obsessed with it?)

Last day in the house where Tori and I were "extended house sitting" for four months. She took the quilt down to let in light the day before. The busyness of trying to move and the fact that my clothes were split between two houses meant I ended up wearing the same shirt and sweater as the day before, but with different pants.Bye house! We'll miss you!
I love how the composition of this one came out--the light coming in from the window, and even how I accidentally caught a bit of the countertop in the frame.Being a petite person, I used to be kind of obsessed with clothing fitting closely, even tight, because it is so hard for me to find things in my size. I'm starting to flirt with the idea of structured looseness in my clothing. I added a green tank under the shirt for a bit of color, though it doesn't come through much in the photo.
Back to real clothing. This is a week after the last picture. I discovered the best place in the house to take my pictures, just in time to move out. I love the way the colorful makeshift quilt curtain competes with my outfit.
I am a bit new to the whole experimenting with layers--originally I wasn't wearing the sweater. But it was a bit cold for the vest/tank top combo, and I didn't want to fuss with a jacket all day.
Immediately after posting my first picture a couple of weeks ago, I started to feel sick. Within the span of an hour I went from feeling fine to having a miserable cold. So nothing I was wearing for about a week could be considered an outfit, per se. This was the closest I came, I think it was Monday and I had gotten sick Friday night. Good old little boys size college sweatshirt--the ultimate in lazy fashion.

Anyone for exercises in self-indulgence? Looking back at pictures of myself over the past year or so, I felt (not for the first time) that my personal style was grossly misrepresented. Over and over again I appear in the same grey American Eagle cardigan and skinny jeans. Yes, I wore that cardigan a lot. But when I look in my closet, only about ten percent of the clothes I own have ever been photographed on me.
I've been intrigued by minute documentation of seeming mundane daily details since I discovered the book "Everything I Ate" by Tucker Shaw. So, in an effort only for myself, and only because I am interested in being able to look back someday at what I was wearing, when, and why, I present this blog.
Also, I just discovered The Sartorialist.
