Spring 2011 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge: my choices




It’s time for another round of Capsule Wardrobe Challenge organised by Jane of the Small Fabric of My Life. The rules are such:

  • Choose ten items of clothing from your wardrobe and mix and match them for five days between Monday February 14th and Friday February 18th.
  • You can have any combination of shoes, dresses, skirts, tops and jackets as long as it adds up to ten individual items.
  • You are also allowed five accessories which include jewellery, scarves, bag, belts etc.
  • Underwear and hosiery do not come under the ten items and five accessories!

I’ve taken part three times before, and both time I included a few grey and black pieces. Here are the links for autumn 2009, spring 2010 and summer 2010.

This time I challenged myself to live up to my reputation and include nothing but colour. You can see my items in the hand drawn sketches above.

I have actually been going for a week already, because I intend to make at least 10 outfits, so I’m slightly ahead and will be posting 2 outfits a day to catch up. I’ve done 6 so far!

I also made a subsitition, as I bought some new shoes and could not wait to wear them! I substituted them for the only thing I hadn’t yet worn, the purple scarf.

Looking forward to showing you my outfits!

    I could never commit myself to post daily, but I follow you all the way my dear Franca.

    It is great to see so many ethical, second hand and vintage pieces in your picks. I can't wait to see what outfits you make.
