I stopped blogging at Fat Shopaholic because consumerism is no longer a primary focus in my life. It felt disingenuous to continue posting on a platform born out of the need to shower myself with things I neither deserved or could afford when I’d been using a capsule wardrobe since November 2015. Capsule dressing has brought a tremendous about of ease to my life. I wear more of my clothing than ever before, getting dressed in the morning no longer requires digging through over flowing bins and sloppy piles of clothes, and I can redirect the money spent on clothing to experiencing more and paying off debts.
This is achieved by limiting the number of pieces in your wardrobe (usually between 30-40 pieces a season,) being more intentional about the pieces you add to your wardrobe at the beginning of each capsule, and not shopping during the remainder of the season (about 3 months).
I will be filming the entirety of my 40 piece summer capsule soon, but in the mean time, I’ll be showing you how I put together the pieces in my limited wardrobe to create minimal outfits with ample style.
The discouraging aspect of many capsule wardrobes is the lack of color as most minimalist style bloggers populate their capsules with neutrals. My wardrobe is stocked with plenty neutrals, but I realized after my first two capsules that I need to add a little print and color to keep my looks from getting stale. I styled my Nakimuli duster around neutral pieces this go round put am looking forward to mixing prints and pairing it with other colors.
