Before I start I wanted to give you a little info on what a capsule wardrobe is. "Capsule wardrobe is a term coined by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique called "Wardrobe" in the 1970s. According to Faux, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don't go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces." With that in mind lets start :)
I just started today on step one so I will share my first step!! There are four steps and once done it will be time to BUILD your own!! So if any of you want to join me feel free :) Every week I will be adding the next step to this process! I also want you all to know that I am following a guide by this amazing lady I have been following and checking all her stuff out lately!! I will provide a link below so you can get all the information I have on her site! P.S you can get a guide from her for FREE!!!
Write down WHY you want to start a capsule wardrobe?
As for me, I want to minimize what I own now. I want to only keep the things that are significant and make me feel happy and comfortable! I realized that a lot of the items I own I never wear, just a waste of space, money and clutter. I want to feel clutter free,save some money, be happy and at peace.
There is a guide that Karin has that allowed me to do a "mood board" with all the items that inspire me. A nice little vision board :) get this for free and all the steps I am doing here: DON'T FORGET TO BE YOURSELF AND PAY ATTENTION TO HOW ITEMS MAKE YOU FEEL!
These are some of the items on my "mood board"
