My body isn't very average so I haven't been able to get everything, but here's how far I've come:
The three jackets are still only two:
|A real second hand jacket!|
|A cheap thing customized with silver edging|
The five bottom pieces:
|Pencil skirt from Eastex|
|New skirt from Marks and Spencer|
|New skirt from Phase Eight, not yet worn!|
|Old, long black skirt, seen often this winter|
These were the five bottom pieces, now the seven tops. The pink pullover and cardigan is meant as a twinset and count as one item. I'm still missing a fitted/tailored cream shirt - but it's just impossible to find!
|cardigan - 1. twin|
|pullover - 2. twin|
|Dark burgundy plain top|
|Plain black top|
|Black top with sleeves|
|Printed top from Kaliko|
|Supposed to be a printed blouse!|
In addition to these items I have my accessories - shoes, jewellery, bags and scarves. In colder seasons I'm adding coats and heavy jackets.
Not being able to find shirts and blouses that are fitted has been the biggest obstacle. Plus I've had to change two pairs of trousers into two skirts since I've given up on trousers for the time being!
In this process I've also realized that I've never ever before owned a plain black t shirt! I'm excited to see if I'll find it useful. The burgundy skirt is A line - another first.
On Monday I'll be back to school and I plan to see if I can get through the week in only clothes from the capsule.
The day before yesterday I was so lucky, my hairdresser called me and said that someone just cancelled their appointment and would I like to go now? I almost ran out the door! She didn't have time for dying it, but who cares? I have before and after photos that my daughter took on the train.Try not to look at the red top, it was more than the camera could handle.
Last night we had friends over for dinner. I made a flower decoration that turned out ok, and a starter that was way more than ok!
|Starter with smoked salmon and eggs|
Yesterday I was so busy that I never got a chance to take any outfit photos, so I'll have to make up to you in during the weekend!
