The hows and whys of “capsule wardrobes” – curated collections were every item of clothing is carefully selected to work with everything else – have been a hot topic in the world of personal style for a while now…but what if that kind of sartorial minimalism isn’t your thing??
As a self-confessed shopaholic, keeping myself restricted to a few well-thought-out purchases every season would be torture; as would being limited to wearing what basically amounts to a “uniform” of sorts. Sure, I could swap out yesterday’s trousers for a skirt today, and trade a pair of pumps for some boots instead…but that just seems so boring when I can (and do!) have an entire smorgasbord of pieces to chose from instead!!
Of course, “wardrobe maximalism” has its challenges, too; sometimes it’s hard to see the proverbial forest for the trees…meaning that outfits can take a little longer to figure out since there are just so darn many options at my fingertips!! But all the ingredients are there to allow me to dress for every possible mood and every side of my personality; something I just can’t imagine a mere “capsule” could accomplish.
From your lovely comments on my last post, I know that at least some of you share my passion for shopping…and probably have a similarly expansive closet to show for it!! Do you sometimes struggle to come up with an ensemble to wear?? And is the challenge a worthwhile compromise, since “variety is the spice of life??” Consider this an informal poll, dear readers (I’ll tell you what it’s all about later!) so I’d really love to hear from each and every one of you!!
P.S. These super sleek Vince Camuto booties?? You guessed it – they’re new!! 😀
