  1. I would like to ask for a capsule wardrobe for my season colors.[cool summer]i am 48 years old and i own together with my husband a shop selling natural building style is easy,natural,classic.efstathia.

  2. Oh I can see this for one of my best friends! She wears these colors already and it is so right for her. Great job

  3. How's the cold coming along?

    A style ignoramus, I wrestled awhile with Google and discovered the magic phrase "capsule wardrobe," culminating in the discovery of your marvelous blog.

    For work, I wear four print skirts with either a long-sleeve or short-sleeve (depending on the season) solid color t-shirt, denim skirt on Fridays. I do not accessorize because I never think of it, much to the despair of my mother.

    Although what I wear is appropriate for my office environment, I have decided that this slapdash and boring approach needs to end. This, in turn, leads me to ask about the possibility of a layout similar to what you did for your 2004 two-week trip, showing not only the articles of clothing and accessories, but also the combinations thereof. I'll learn eventually to see them myself in your briefer layouts, but I'm a fledgling at this point. A two-week cycle would help me to keep things fresh and give me a base to build on.

    I'm aiming for business casual, as suits or blazers would look way overdressed. I have never worn pants there, though I would consider it. I sit at a computer and do not meet with clients or senior management. No idea what "season" I am and my brain freezes up when I try to figure it out. Blue and dark purple seem to work; pink, red, orange, green, and yellow all seem hideous on me. I gravitate toward dark colors, so a base of black or gray sounds right. I wore a coat maybe three times last winter, so one isn't necessary in the collection. On the flip side, it is unmercifully hot here in summer (but that's a request for another day).

    Have you considered using this blog as an advertisement for a (maybe sideline) career as a personal stylist? All these examples you've provided serve well to give potential customers an idea of what to expect and a comfort level that you'll come through with something they'd actually want to wear.

  4. This wardrobe is absolutely breathtaking! Bravo! --LizY

  5. Hello! I stumbled upon your blog last night and fell in love with it! Do you think you could create a capsule wardrobe for a 29-year-old teacher who lives in NY? Style is chic and sophisticated; colors are olive, plum and chocolate brown. Thank you!

  6. I actually enjoyed reading through this posting. Many thanks.
