I love clothes. I love the challenge of putting together an outfit that says something about me. In spite of many years of private art lessons as a child, I can't paint or draw above a 4th grade level. But something about getting dressed every day feeds my need for a creative outlet. I have a very small closet and a small budget to match it. There's also the added challenge of having to shop almost entirely online. And only at stores that ship to St. Thomas. I've also been doing a lot of thinking recently about the whole issue of buying lots of cheap clothes (which often contributes to both child and slave labor) versus buying just a few well-made items. It takes a lot more thought, time, and patience to go the latter route. This is where to follow along my journey of putting clothes in my closet and on my body.
