Year Three

yearthree

Sometimes it’s hard to express how much My Closet in Sketches means to me without sounding redundant. There are so many tangible ways that this website has affected my life, but what’s more important to me – and what I find difficult to convey over the internets – is what it has done to my future, my past, my confidence, my soul, etc.

The creative center in me that burns with a desire to make something, all the time, is the same place that is stoked with joy every time a reader shares how I have inspired them. My goal is that My Closet in Sketches will always remain a place of imaginative freedom, of gettin’ down and dirty and doin’ shit just because something inside compelled me there.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here.

Take an abridged tour through these memorable outfits from the last three years:

-My First Post

-Cleaver in Color

-Year One

Ways To Wear Your Tee

Once upon a time, I also drew How To Wear Jeans.

Here’s another sketch of those red jeans, that black skirt (LOVE doesn’t even express my love for it), the trippy skirt, the leopard print jeans, the classic denim, and that stripey skirt.

Scottish Rites

In celebration of recent events, my nuclear family is jetting to Scotland for the next week (and London for a few days). It wouldn’t surprise you to learn that before almost every trip, I draw out a packing list that looks something like this. Doing so helps me focus my vacation vision, which inevitably has turned into an homage to my ultimate semi-sportif hip-hop lady-playa who digs the rolling hills – a flat brim hat, some Adidas spandex, an incognito trench, etc.

I’ll be carrying on my dad’s old backpack, a Lands End Canvas fisherman sweater, the St. James tee, some American Apparel and J.Crew tees, my London Fog trench, my Urban Outfitters jean jacket, Cheap Monday and Zara jeans, Adidas running spandex, a Gap henley, a Lands End Canvas polka-dot button up “borrowed” from mom, my men’s department J.Crew shirt, new Converse All Stars, Bass boots, Target socks, the Avs, the Cat Eyes, and SEE glasses, a DC baseball cap from Jonas’s baseball team, mom’s scarves, books, books, books, (screw e-readers), Moleskines.
