The Autumn Winter Capsule Wardrobe hit and miss lists!

As the Autumn/Winter Capsule Wardrobe comes to a close, I’ve been looking forward to recapping what worked and what didn’t! 

Today I’m looking at the hits & misses from my Autumn Winter outfits. Most worn and best value items up for review…

These little espadrilles were the season winner!

They cost me a bargain $15.00 from Kmart at the start of the season!

After 14 wears they’re down to $1.07 per wear.

Unfortunately after washing the car in them, the colour has ran and they aren’t so pretty. Time to hunt down a new pair for spring!

Corporate wear in general was a clear front running winner in my wardrobe! These were my most worn and best value items…

Two seasons of capsule wardrobing: what I know now

I know some things now after nearly two seasons– Spring and most of Summer– of capsule wardrobing. In my last post I explained the concept of capsule wardrobing: pick a number of clothes that works for you (I picked 37 items of clothing including shoes and outerwear but excluding accessories, intimates, and workout gear); lay […]

A capsule wardrobe ain’t perfect, and neither are we!

Hi there fellow capsule wardrober’s!

So… I have been a MIA compared to my usual twice weekly posts! What happened you ask?

The shopping guilt’s…that’s what happened!

See I’m a person of my word. Integrity is high up there on my list of values! And for almost four months I’ve been advocating living with less and the benefits of a shopping hiatus. From the word go it was however the plan to allow myself a little shopping for the ever important capsule rotation period. And that period is right now! So, sure enough I have hit the shops and bought a few new beautiful things for my closet. However the post shopping pangs of guilt have been tough, really tough. Shoppers remorse has hit me, BIG TIME!Read More »

Confession time!

My dear capsule wardrobe followers and shopaholics alike…

I have a confession to make…

I shopped!

For the second time in this capsule wardrobe shopping stoppage, I made some clothing purchases.

See my beautiful friend who is a fashion designer has taken a leap of courage, taken a career break and opened her brand new boutique store; Marvel Clothing.

Marvel (2)Beautiful shiny fashion torture right!?

One best-friend is on a shopping hiatus, the other is off sourcing fashion pieces and “buying” in the full sense of the word to operate as a fashion retailer.

I am ever so proud of my dear friend! And in support of this incredible venture she has taken on, I had long planned to support her in her opening week.

And luckily the opening date of Marvel was originally perfectly in time for my planned spring-summer capsule rotation week where I would allow myself to shop for a few pieces- that was before I pushed back my capsule wardrobe rotation date.Read More »
