Capsule Wardrobe Challenge

Calling all you creative fashionistas. If you could choose only ten items to see you through a working week, what ten items would you choose. This includes everything including accessories but not underwear!


Stacy said...

This is without actually looking at my closet....

1.green short sleeve sweater
2.silver ring – I have to wear a ring each day!
3.raspberry colored peep toe wedges
4.white dress
5.light blue ¾ sleeve sweater
6.brown polka dot dress
7.denim skirt
8.cream colored tank
9.green leaf necklace
10.patchwork purse

Now, if my closet were in front of me, I might make different choices. I think I *could* get by with all of that but boy would my shoes stick by the end of the week! ;-)

I'm going to take this challenge and post a response on my blog later this week and link over here to you :-) I have a draft of 5 work outfits on 10 items but want a day or 2 to make sure this is the best I can do :-)

KT said...

I'm like Leslie- A challenge! Game on!
1) What is the deadline?
2) Is there a price limit?
Oooh I am excited!

Sheila said...

Easy! From my wardrobe:

1. Black suit (ha, I'm cheating - that's 2 pieces, pants and jacket)
2. Yellow satin blouse
3. Grey pencil skirt
4. Turquoise cardigan
5. Yellow/turquoise full silk skirt
6. Turquoise camisole
7. Black pumps
8. Silver flats
9. Chunky silver/black bracelet
10. Silver hoop earrings

You could easily do 5 outfits out of this. If you don't let me cheat on the suit, I'd dump the yellow/turquoise full skirt.

Thanks Stacy. I know what you mean about the shoes. I once heard that it wasn't advisable to wear the same pair of shoes for more than one day in a row. But we'd have to let that go!
Thanks Leslie. I look forward to seeing your post. I was thinking about it on my morning run today. Later I will post the five outfits and ten pieces I came up with.
KT - a deadline? How about the end of the week - no price limit!
Possibly the challenge would be to carry it out!
Sheila, I am afraid I would have to we strict with the suit but love the ideas.

Wow! What a cool idea. I am in and will think about this. I am pretty booked in the evenings the next couple of days, but will map it out and post about it this weekend. I love my accessories, so this will be hard!

Megan said...

Nice to find your blog, as well! I like this idea and will do a picture blog about it, too!

I am feeling all inadequate now. I think I only have ten things that are fit to wear for work.

I am ashamed.

I need to crawl away to where the unkempt, scruffy people live.

P.S Is that true about the shoes? I never knew you weren't allowed to wear them more than one day at a time. I have showers and clean feet every day, if that makes a difference.
