When I posted My Year Long Capsule Wardrobe back in April I said that I would occasionally update it when I buy new pieces for it, and since April I have made a few purchases. Not as many as I have made in the past, but enough for an update. Over the last few months I bought a boxy striped shirts from Everlane, some boyfriend jeans from Gap, black denim pants and brown, suede ankle tie flats from Zara, and a pair of tan booties from Winners.
I talked about my decision to steer myself away from seasonal capsules and focus on building a complete wardrobe that will take me through the whole year. I don’t have a magic number, or an outline of all the pieces I hope to eventually include because I expect those will change over time. I’m always on the look out for pieces that I feel will be positive additions to what I already have, and things that can replace what is getting worn.
I don’t think this is a project that has an end because I will be slowly replacing pieces as they wear out and when I can afford better quality items over the years. It is nice to have finally reached a point where I no longer have to stand in front of a crowded closet with that lost feeling of having nothing to wear.
How many new items of clothing do you buy in a month?
