PURCHASED/ PURLOINED/ GIFTED/ PRESS SAMPLES*/Happy 2014, everyone!
Start the new year with a 52 Pick-me-up challenge. It's a weekly series that I started last June.
You can see all the prompts if you click on the menu bar tab up top.
This week, it's time to wear something old, something that you haven't worn for a year (also known as a closet orphan). You know you have such items. I do, in spades. I've got the "too small but still like" box.
I've got the "needs repair or revamp it" boxes.
I KNOW those boxes are full of things I haven't worn for a while, if ever.
Here's the one I dug around in:
It was too small, but I got it anyway for the print, which I adore.
(Please ignore the fact that I didn't press it and it's a wrinkled mess.)

Co-workers rejoice. Me, on the time clock, not so happy.
2.5 days of working will NOT pay the rent. So I didn't clock out. Maybe they'll pay me for a full day.
Through forces beyond my control (OK, in the wrong lane on the 605),
I ended up going a different way home (105 vs 60/10 through dtLA).
So I thought, why not go to the beach and do some sort of end-of-year ritual?
I always gravitate to the Playa Del Rey beach. Easy to park is reason #1.
No rocks, but this piece of "beach plastic" served well:

Now, back to my challenge. What can you find that you haven't worn for a year?
