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!

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 :-)

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.
