The mini Capsule Wardrobe Lookbook part 2



So here it is, a project I spoke about so much, all over in a second. It has been really amazing to realize how little clothes I really need and that having a well edited wardrobe indeed makes a huge difference. In fact I almost took 30 minutes to get dressed yesterday morning as I had my whole wardrobe again in front of me, which led to a brain confusion :)

It really does feel like I came off a detox. A real eye opener of a detox! Things feel more cluttered than ever, my wardrobe is still full of clothes I do not need: substitutes, impulse buys, "great" bargains. It seems no matter how much I reduce it there are always more clothes lurking in the background. I am going to take a very drastic approach and try and get rid of everything I just don't love. There are so many pieces that are ok, but they are not amazing. They would look better if I was taller, thinner, younger, older, black haired, but they do not look good right now and haven't actually looked good in a few months, years, if ever.  

The fight for simplicity and de-clutter continues ....

P.S. because I do not have a photographer these photos are a hapzardous collection of instgram shots and a mini lookbook I shot this weekend.

P.s.ss. Just arrived to Koh Samui this morning, I wish I never had to go back to the city.... Imagine living on the beach forever?

  4. Love how many amazing looks you can create with just a few pieces. I swear, decluttering is like a drug, once you started you can't really stop.

  7. loving all these looks!! You picked such great pieces to work with~
    I totally agree with giving away things you don't love anymore. But there are times where you might fall back in love with things you thought you were out of love with! hahaha, it's happened to me a few times. While most of the things I've given away are things I'm more than ok to part with, there are always a few things I wish I had kept. Can you say I'm a bit attached to stuff? fug-yeah. I've decided to just buy less (somehow this will happen...!)
