Picture this: you’ve been invited for a rare night out – hoorah! Now you’re standing in a towel with a mere 30 minutes to get ready…WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR?
Maybe your wardrobe is so full that you need to use your whole body weight to push the hangers aside, but that doesn’t mean there’s anything in it. Your innate love of clothes and accessories is not only killing your credit card, but also your ability to throw together a decent outfit. You have too many options, you’re overwhelmed.
Start with a “capsule wardrobe”, a small wardrobe of 24 items or less that you can live off for every occasion, by creating different combinations. Sound impossible? If you don’t believe me, feel free to return to crying in your pile of clothes on the floor, but if you’d like to save money, reduce effort and dress for your body shape and personal style, please continue…
