Why the Capsule Wardrobe won't work for you

Yep, I totally went there. The Capsule Wardrobe is a sensation right now and I am here to tell you why it's just not for you. 

First and foremost, if you have no idea what I am talking about - check out what the Capsule Wardrobe and what it's all about. In general it's a pretty cool concept that speaks to focusing on living life and not worrying about what to wear. And that concept I can totally jump on board for. But then the theory goes a little crazy with only wearing 37 pieces of clothes (including shoes) for three months. There are exceptions and a few rules but that is the gist. 

1) Not practical for the working women! I love a great casual wardrobe, but what they heck are those professional dressing gals supposed to wear!? Boyfriend jeans with a graphic tee? I don't think so!

2) Only 37 pieces!? I mean, how is one supposed to only wear one dress for three months!? Not this girl. 

3) Why do I have to get rid of everything? So, as a stylist, I think it is super important to build the right wardrobe for my clients. The operative word is build, not destroy. I create looks with the pieces my clients love and donate the pieces they aren't wearing anymore/ those pieces that are out of style. It just seems like a waste of money to just throw out clothes that you do wear.

I sincerely hope you find the best solution to any of your wardrobe needs! And if I can help - I would love too!
