Fellow blogger The Small Fabric of my Life had challenged the fashion blogosphere to a capsule wardrobe challenge for the week. Once I've got new batteries in my new portable Sony digital camera I will photograph my choices properly.
The rules allow for 10 items from your wardrobe and 5 accessories - thankfully underwear and hosiery are unlimited.
New black Reiss Lucia draped casual skirt
Black satin bustier Wallis dress (years old!)
Gap stripey long sleeve Breton top (2 years old)
Gap grey cashmere t-shirt (2 years old)
H&M white shirt (this season - £14.99)
H&M sequin leggings (this season - £12.99)
H&M tuxedo jacket (years old - best ever £30 spent)
new champagne Reiss shrug cardi
Tods black loafers (3 years old bought in Rome)
Black ankle boots (4 years old and still working them)
My new Toast bag
A purple scarf
Chunky gunmetal Topshop necklace
Green coin Topshop necklace
Navy blue patent belt
As my capsule wardrobe is lacking in colour I've added red to my nails to add a bit of drama.
Today I'm wearing my black skirt and grey cashmere top with the chunky necklace, red nails, bare legs and my Tods loafers. If it gets a bit chilly I'll throw on the shrug cardi.
