Capsule Wardrobe Part One

I recently partnered up with PinkBlush as a Style Ambassador.  So exciting!  When it came time to order, I wasn’t sure if I should go with my classic style or more trendier pieces.  This is when I realized, I inadvertently have created a capsule wardrobe.

CAPSULE WARDROBE?

According to Wikipedia, a 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.

Up until a few months ago, I had never even heard of a capsule wardrobe. I thought it was a new concept but it’s been around for decades and I, without realizing have subscribed to this concept for decades as well.  I naturally tend to gravitate towards classic and basic pieces that I can wear interchangeably season after season.

QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

I like to invest in quality pieces when I am choosing staple pieces.  Since, I tend to wear pieces for years, I want them to last. If I really love an item, I will buy it in different colors or a duplicate for back up & to extend wear.  On occasion, I do buy inexpensive trendy pieces to add and mix in with my existing pieces.

WHY PINKBLUSH?
