Hi friends! For the next five Wednesdays, I’m going to be doing a mini-series dedicated to the art of designing your wardrobe. Let me just clarify: I’m not talking about creating a closet or adding a bunch of on-trend items. I’m going in-depth about the process it takes to create a collection of clothing that brings you joy.
How many times have you stood in front of your wardrobe and wondered what you were going to wear? I’ve been there. I’ve been the person that tried on 5 different outfits, came back to the first one, didn’t love it, walked out the door and spent the rest of the day with a nagging voice in my head telling me I should have gone with the navy skirt, not the black one.
On the flip side, when you feel comfortable with your clothing choices it’s easy to put together outfits in a pinch for that last minute job interview, evening out, or special occasion. You want to know every item of clothing in your wardrobe is versatile, comfortable, well-fitted, and well taken care of. That’s when a wardrobe sparks joy.
So that’s what this mini-series is all about. It’s about building your wardrobe from the ground up. It’s about doing an overhaul of your clothing. It’s not just about out with the old in the with new, it’s about what to do with the old and where to buy the new. I want to make it clear that my philosophy on clothing is not about excess, trendy, cheap or sales. It’s about curating a collection of treasured pieces that will stand the test of time and wear.
I want to walk you through where I donate or sell my gently used, no longer worn pieces and my favorite brands for buying quality pieces. We’ll go step-by-step through a version of a capsule wardrobe so the core of what you own is perfectly selected and can be the foundation for the rest of your wardrobe. I’ll share my favorite ways to properly take care of the investment pieces, what to do with your clothes in the off-season, and how to display your items so you don’t forget about a sweater, scarf, or shoe.
So, if you’re interested, follow along with me for the next few Wednesdays as I walk through how to design your dream wardrobe.
