The Capsule Wardrobe #5 - Optional Occasional

Remember in December? Where I was talking about how much lace intrigued me as a big player for the New Years Eve outfit? Well, I did go with lace. Knowing myself and my dressing habits fairly intimately by now however, I opted for a button down shirt/blouse with a lace front for my look. A dress would have been ace, mind, but honestly I would have hardly ever worn it afterwards and the shirt/blazer combo is far more me, don't you agree?

Links a la Mode January 28

It's been awhile that I hadn't submitted my posts to IFBs Links a la Mode weekly round up. I started again in January and am happy to say that my capsule wardrobe post "Half Time Impressions" has been picked to be among this weeks Top 20 fashion posts.

The Capsule Wardrobe Experiment #4 - And A New Bag

I am very fuzzy about my bags. For one, except for the couple of clutches I have, they must come with a shoulder strap. Of cross body length. Not one of those larger handles where you just so manage to squeeze your arm through and wedge the bag between arm and body. The reasons are fairly simple. First, I'm paranoid. Second, I have a kid. Third it makes shopping way easier if you don't have to pay overly much attention to your bag because it isn't attempting to slide off as soon as you move your arms to grab something.

The Capsule Wardrobe Experiment #3 - Half Time Impressions

After about half of time I've set myself for "The Capsule Wardrobe Experiment" passed, I wanted to share a brief "so far" reflection. I must say that I really like it even more than I thought I would. I don't feel deprived or unable to express my creativity at all, especially since I didn't set any limit on accessories & shoes. Which doesn't mean I went out to stock up on those. Quite the contrary. Thanks to doing the capsule project, my shopping during our holidays has been almost inexistant.

5 Most & Least Loved Posts in 2015

Happy New Year to you my dears and I hope you all made it across fabulously. 2015 was quite a particular and in many ways transformative year for me on a personal level. I'm still not quite done with evaluating it all, but I feel the deep shift that has happened over the course of the year and its events.

It was also a year where my blog has grown and transformed right along with me. Of course. It is a way of self expression, so when I change, the blog has to follow, or else it will become dissonant.
