The whole point of the project was to see how long I could go without having to re-wear something. It would have been brilliant if I had kept track of when I started, which I honestly have no idea of. I seriously can't even pinpoint an approximate week. I'm at a loss. The secondary whole point was for me to see what clothes were the duds of my closet, the ones I would avoid wearing at all costs, so that I could get rid of them. I have sort of failed on that account too, as I'm pretty much out of clothes now and only have two things that I really don't want to wear.
I considered taking a picture of each outfit so I could actually see all my clothes, but that seemed narcissistic in a silly way (as opposed to the fun narcissism that is so popular on the internets), so I didn't.
Getting down to the end does make getting dressed a little trickier though. Now that I've got maybe three or four possible outfits left, I have to think about what I'll be doing over the next few days and what clothes will be the most optimal when. Do I want to save my cute tank top that I got for $10 even though it should have cost $40 for the end as a reward, or wear it today? (I'm wearing it today.) Will I be forced to wear a dress on a dress-inconvenient day?
The BIG question, however, is what to do with the drawer of summer clothes. I set it aside in fall to make room for sweaters and whatnot, but it's getting into the warm weather now and I would probably start integrating these clothes into my regularly-scheduled-programming any day/week/month now anyways. So should these be included in the project? If so, I have significantly extended The Closet Project. I will basically start Wardrobe Number Two: The Doubling, because summer clothes don't take up much space and a full drawer of summer clothes is pretty much the equivalent of three shelves of winter clothes.
Either way, I have been pretty lax with this entire project, so it probably doesn't matter very much what I do. The only thing I have really learned is that I do, indeed, own a lot of clothes, and that they almost all make me happy when I wear them.
I am confused now! Did The Closet Project fail? Should I keep it going??? I NEED GUIDANCE!!!
