New Wardrobe Musings...

Yesterday was one of those weirdly productive but not, kinda days. I sat in the house all day but I did organise almost all of my wardrobe and made a comprehensive list of what I was missing.
I found a lot of Project Runway helped!
I pretty much pulled all of my favorite clothes out of my wardrobe and put them on a rail downstairs. Originally this was to help me work out what I had that was handmade ready for Self Stitch September. Because of my harsh culling in the wardrobe pretty much everything I now have was sat on the rail.
The photo at the top encapsulates the main colours that seem to be the bulk of my wardrobe. Its quite a summery group of colours and I'd like to introduce more Autumnal colours this season.

I then looked at Tim Gunns Essential Peices list to work out what I had and what I needed. Tim Gunn's 10 Essential Items Every Woman Needs

• Basic black dress
• Trench coat
• Classic dress pants
• Classic white shirt
• Skirt
• Blazer
• Day dress
• Cashmere sweater
• Jeans
• A comfortable alternative to a sweatsuit

I currently own:
A patterned Blazer from Boden but i'd like a plain one too
Trench Coat Aquascutum
Jeans that are rapidly becoming too big
Day Dresses
Skirts but I have only one plain which is my needlecord Beignet (now too big)

Which means I need:
Cashmere sweater
White Shirt
Black Dress
Sweat Suit Alternative

These are just the basics! I have another long list of extra things I am going to need!
How do you organise your wardrobe?

  1. Ooh, I don't let anyone and their lists or rules tell me what should be in my wardrobe. Partly because I don't like being told what to do, partly because I'm just not that organised. Good luck with everything - sounds as though you're storming along with the healthy eating!


I love reading what you have to say!
