RECAP: Wardrobe Capsule Challenge

As I mentioned earlier the Wardrobe Capsule Challenge was fun.
It made me rethink what to wear and also how to use an item in different ways. It forced me to be a little creative although honestly I think that I played safe by using basic colors. That is something I intend to change for .. next time.


Sooo.. I had to live one week with:


5 Accessories
- Red patent bag
- Animal print belt
- Animal print scarf
- Red Suede belt
- White gold Gucci earrings



10 Garments (shoes included)


1- Black patent shoes PM brand
2- Black Polka dot dress RETRO brand
3- Black satin dress Richard Chai for Target
4- Black sweater (no brand)
5- Grey pants Speechless brand
6- Colorful satin top ABS brand
7- White short sleeve jacket Best brand


Ok, something is off, I just realized that I only wore 7 items this week !!!
Meaning that I could have spared 3 items more... 




So what do you think ? I think you would have to be really nosy or just my H to know !


Here they go once again:

I think all these outfits say your sophisticated! I simply love it and some may think that matching black, white, and red is easy; but it actually isn't. If you're not too careful...it can be kind of dull...which wasn't the case here at all!

Oh btw, Just wanted to mention that I awarded you for the Kreative Blogger Award. You certainly don't have to post anything about it, but I did want you to know in the event that you do want to participate and/or you just want to post of the jpeg image of the award. Stay Blessed!

I cannot believe you only wore 7 items!! You got a ton of versatility out of them. I love how crisp, professional and pretty each day looks. That's the style I aim for, so it's nice to have found someone I can follow for inspiration. :)
