Curating a capsule...

Monday, September 18, 2017

In the same way that many vegetarians are often asked, "But, what do you eat?" fashionistas with a capsule or minimalist wardrobe are often asked, "But, what do you wear?"  

The answer to both questions is the same: quality. 

Just as vegetarians cut certain things out of their diets, minimalists cut things like fast fashion out of their wardrobes.  The focus is on pieces that are made well, are versatile, and can withstand the ever-changing cycle of fashion.  

It's taken years to arrive at the point where I can say that I'm truly weeding out mass-produced garments and curating a capsule wardrobe of my own.  This outfit is an example of some of the staple pieces that have made the cut!  They are well-made, can we styled tons of different ways, and can be mixed and matched to create outfits that suit a number of different trends. 

What's sustainable about this outfit? 

: the tank gives back to global education initiatives
: the trousers were re-purposed
: the earrings were handmade with zero waste
: the necklace was handmade
: the bracelet was handmade
