Time Capsule: One Month Round Up

It’s been a month since I started my capsule wardrobe, and at the 1/3 mark, it’s time to reflect on the experience so far…



Black converse – but they were my only shoe option for a while, and I was wearing them yet hating them. Making it work on a budget! Glad I held out until the universe delivered (in the form of a gift from my grandmother!).



Quite a few items I only wore once, but a few of them I feel like I got more use out of as the weather got colder, so they’ll pop up more next month. The purple pencil skirt though may be a goner!



I didn’t have any gigs this last month, so only wore one of my fancy dresses. The pin up dress and the Dita dress remain untouched. I have at least one gig coming up though, so I’m glad they’re there, although I may need only one seeing as how versatile the lovely leopard print dress has been!



My oversize cream jumper has made an appearance more than once, and I feel it will be officially co-opted with the cooler weather coming closer! Looking back at my outfits over the last month, there’s a couple of combos I’ve only worn once that I definitely want to repeat again. Having limited choices has been way easier and more creative than having a huge wardrobe!
