What’s the big deal about a capsule wardrobe?!

I can’t scroll down more than ten seconds on Instagram without seeing a post about capsule wardrobes. Just like other amazing inventions, like the Nutribullet, a capsule wardrobe can make our life way easier. It’s basically timeless, non-trendy, quality basics that can be mix and matched with each other to create many outfits.

Two popular capsule how-to curators are Unfancy and Project333. They both say once your capsule is created you only wear those items for 3 months until the next season. Yep, that’s right. Say goodbye to those emotional shopping binges and late night QVC purchases! The usual number of pieces ranges from 30-37 including accessories. However, if you prefer a little more or a little less. It’s okay, go for it. Give it a try….make the process your own.

I’ve created two capsules versions for you; a classic capsule for men and one with a little flair for a woman. According to your personal style, unique coloring, closet size, and preferences, your choices may vary from item to item. For example, if you work in Silicon Valley as a tech guy you may not need two suits as in my classic capsule. Or if you don’t look great in the colors in the capsule, we changed them to suit your unique coloring. Or if you’re a fabulous stay at home mom or you may not prefer a suit either. We’d switch it out for a more casual ensemble.  

MEN’S CAPSULE

WOMEN’S CAPSULE

If you love any of the pieces above you can shop from it! I finally found a cool site where we can curate looks just for you. You may think, “okay, this is great but I don’t have $10,000.00 to invest in a new wardrobe”. I got you! We can just start with the basics and add one piece at a time. When I shop for my clients, I don’t use the term capsule. Everything we purchase can be worn together with pieces that we kept from the closet audit. 

Whether you decide to capsule or not shop with these three suggestions in mind for easy stress-free dressing: 

  1. Shop in the same color scheme.
  2. Keep your quality pieces in solid neutral colors. 
  3. Organize your closet so you can see what you have. 

If you’d like for me to create you one contact me for details. If you’d like to try it by the book check out the two how-to bloggers above and pick one that suits ya. If you hate to wear anything twice and love to shop and wear new items weekly my three suggestions still imply. You’ll just have more items! Let me know your experience.

Want to be more fabulous than you already are? Hire an expert in the skills that you are lacking. I did! Meet Youtube style maven, Oprah reality show finalist, inspirational “sista”, and my new mentor and friend, Tiffany Hendra of Sanctuary of Style.

After watching Tiffany’s how-to style videos, I knew she had the answer to my “please send someone to help me with my videos” prayers. I’m an expert stylist …not a expert director/video producer. I want to be great at creating videos to help more people BE THE BEST DRESSED THEY CAN BE. Well, if my videos are not “the best they can be”, then who is going to watch them?

Best part is, she needed advice on the direction of writing her first book. We are able to help each other get our inspirational messages and goals out to more people! Her “SISTA” community is so supportive too. Win-win for us all! My point: we can’t do it all…we need help. The possibilities to what “two heads” can do instead of one  is endless. If we want to be the best we can be… we have to work, pursue, and push ourselves toward all of our goals. Without sounding dirty…LET’S PUSH IT PEOPLE!

You can find her on youtube, facebook, or her blog!  You can google Tiffany Hendra or Sanctuary of Style…and her must-see videos to keep us looking FAB and feeling confident will pop up.

Tiffany,  thank you for opening up your heart, community, and world to me. Thanks for reminding me our strength comes from God. Thank you for being just as beautiful on the inside as the outside. You are a blessing. You are an angel to us all.

PS. Please check out my website in a few weeks for my new WELCOME VIDEO directed and coached by the “inspirational style maven”  Tiffany. I can’t wait!

PPS. Thanks to Tom Antion(my business mentor) who introduced me to Ursula Mentjes(my sales mentor) who introduced me to Kim Somers, who had me on her Willow Tree panel, where I met so many other fab women like Tiffany and Jeanette Ortega(my inspirational GET IN SHAPE mentor;))

Fashionably and Gratefully Yours,

Rayne
