So this is what my capsule wardrobe (aka my Airstream closet) looks like at the moment. At first I was a bit stressed out trying to make it 'perfect' but then a cold front hit and I had to go digging back into the bins to pull out a couple sweaters. And that's when I decided, well it's my capsule wardrobe and I'm going to do it the way I want. That means I'm not going to stress out about having the perfect number or selection of clothes and instead let my capsule have more of a 'flow' to it. That means if I need something then I will let myself go back to storage and pull out what I need. Then that item will have a place in my capsule closet, thus the space for a couple more hanging items and the nearly empty shelf for dresses. I'll fill it as I need. Also whatever I don't pull to use in my capsule for the warm season will be up on the chopping block. I kind of see it as a 2 closet system and whatever doesn't get moved to the primary closet will be sold or donated. And for the most part, my going out clothes (ie blogger clothes) will stay at the garage and not be included in my Airstream capsule closet since I pretty much live at our workplace and I usually leave to go to events/dinners from there and not the Airstream (logistically it makes sense since the garage is closer to the city than the RV park we live in). So this may not be a fully enclosed capsule collection but that's okay with me. Whatever works and makes me happy right?
P.S. And since I'm a total newbie at this capsuling thing, here's a link to an expert capsuler so you can get some real tips on how to do this:
P.P.S. I'm happy to report that thus far my renewed shopping ban for March has been going very well. No new things in! In April I will go back to my original rules of allowing myself to thrift shop as well as try out Everlane and Grana items purchased on credit (thanks to everyone who has supported me on this!)
