Project 333 October Capsule Wardrobe: Week 2 of 4

This past week I added 17 items to my Fall capsule wardrobe for a working total of 38. If I don't count jewelry I'm at 31 items.

I finally decided to let go of the lovely shoes I wore to our son's wedding 2 1/2 years ago. I've worn them a few times since, but my feet hurt when I put them on now. This is a good way to weed out items you just keep holding on to because you like them but they just don't work for some reason.

On Thursday I added a sand top, black pants, black belt and two necklaces for this outfit. The black loafers were already in the capsule.


Then for going out to dinner Friday night at a neighborhood Thai restaurant I added a gray ruffle top, black slim jeans, red 3/4 sleeve cardigan, a silver/black pendant necklace and a black cross-body purse. It's hard to get good pictures by myself LOL.


 

Feeling a bit Boho on Saturday I added this top, turquoise bracelet & necklace, and a navy belt to the medium wash jeans and navy loafers already in my capsule.


 

I also added a casual dark gray top, berry cardigan, wine scarf, walking shoes and a pair of boot cut medium wash jeans. I'm still not sure about keeping the tangerine jeans so I'll see if I reach for them at all over the next few weeks.

    1. Sure. The 3 tops shown are all from a local consignment store. The cardigan was from a Ross or Marshalls. My jeans are all from Kohls although they aren't carrying the same brand in petites anymore. I'm a low cost clothes shopper for the most part as I know the markup is crazy in department stores. The exception are when I can't find something to fit then I go up the cost ladder.

    2. Also the jewelry is a combination of antique items from my Mom, Etsy and ebay finds.
