Two thrifted coats- one winter, one year-round.
Two year-round and two summer dresses; two thrifted, two purchased new.
Three sweaters and two linen t-shirts, secondhand. Update: I sold the sweaters.
Five pairs of shoes
Accessories: One purse (thrifted), one pair of sunglasses, one wedding ring and watch. I have one pair thrifted gloves. My hair is my scarf.
I'm not one for selfies, but this is typically what I wear everyday. People see me in a coat a lot, so it makes sense to wear nice ones. See the Michelin Man in the last photo? It's the warmest thing I've ever worn, like snuggling the center of a roasted marshmallow.
I have one pair of leggings for under clothing- I was the first one in my middle school to wear them with skirts à la Claudia Kishi, and two girls in health class made fun of me. A year later, they weren't friends anymore and were wearing leggings with skirts like everybody else. But I was over it and on to wrap dresses or something.
This isn't a capsule wardrobe (I hate that term). These are all the clothes I own. Nothing is in storage. I didn't mean to keep my closet small or 'curated,' but I keep only what I wear, and shop only when I need something. I don't feel hampered or constrained- I'm 25, live in a city with four seasons, travel to tropical and freezing climates, work, socialize with friends, volunteer, and attend formal events. Counting pajamas, intimates, socks, and exercise clothes, I have 40 items.
I'm sick of shopping and curious to see how long I can wear just the clothes I have now. It's more than plenty, and I revel in the private joy of infinitesimal cost per wear. To see my current spring wardrobe, click here.
