It's me again! This week I've been prepping my capsule wadrobe for fall. - A capsule wardrobe is a planned set of seasonal clothes (usually 30-37 pieces per season), that helps you focus on your personal style, not overspending, wearing all of what you own regularly, and getting rid of clothes that don't fit or work well for you. In the end there's less fuss when you get dressed each day because things work well together, you can experiment more knowing things will pair well together. It also clears out space if like me you end up with more than you wear and also hold on to things that don't fit.
In my latest blog post I explain more about my process for putting my fall capsule together as well as look at what worked and what didn't in my summer capsule. You can check that out here - http://lydiadickson.blogspot.com/2015/08/making-my-second-capsule-wardrobe.html
Here's a sample shot from my planning sheets:
Also if any of you want to check it out there's a site called Thred Up which allows you to sell your clothes on consignment. They send you a postage paid bag to fill and you get credit for whatever they accept (which is probably going to be more than average for plus sized clothing because it's in high demand), and then there's the shop where you can buy, and use your credit if you've sold items. I'm sending a bunch off so in a couple weeks there will be a nice influx of items in sizes 16-20 and 6.5-7.5 shoes if all goes well. If you're interested you can use my link and get $20 off your first purchase http://www.thredup.com/r/SY7WLZ
