Those of you who have been following on recently, know what I'm about to tell you.
But I've been thinking a lot recently about the 'why' behind this magical formula I'm about to reveal.
In my last post I spoke about being a slave to fashion (catch up here), and I have realised just how mixed up this whole fashion and self-confidence/esteem thing really is.
For each of us our 'Why' is so very different. We may want the same things from life, but our reason 'why' is unique to you and you alone.
For me, the reason why I wanted to create a Minimalist Wardrobe (capsule collection - whatever you might want to call it) was because I realised how much energy was being wasted everyday getting dressed - especially because I didn't feel like ME in any of my clothes.
If I didn't feel like me than who did I feel like?
I felt like a charade of society's expectations of me. A mixture of trend, modesty, comfort and fitting in. A typical recipe of not being good enough, comparisonitis, and worrying what other people might think. I had lost my youthful flair and love for experimentation - and my unbreakable self-confidence hung in my wardrobe like a forgotten super-hero costume...
When I realised that this was what I had done to myself, I dusted off that costume, found the pieces that complimented it and grew it's power 10 fold. But it took not just inventive smart shopping skills - it took a mindset change that enabled me to FULLY embrace my unique style and not give a sh*t what anyone else thought of me.
So, where are YOU at Kitty-Cat? Do you worry that someone might notice that you are wearing an adaption of the same style everyday? Can you let go of the need to impress others and choose instead to impress only yourself? Can you empty a wardrobe of 100 pieces, stick to under 50 - and not hyperventilate?
For now, we're going to assume you can - keep reading the follow up posts to this one because with each step there will be more help with the mindset stuff (your super hero costume will be waiting for you - I promise).
Right now it's time for the big reveal!!
Wardrobe Minimalist - The 7 Steps to Build your Capsule Collection
In a nut shell, that is all it takes!
A little bit of personal insight, a big chunk of organisation and whole lot of playing!
But you didn't think I was going to just let you work it all out for yourself now did you?!
Over the next few weeks we are going to tackle this head on - you and me, sister. And I will give you the details you need to do this. However, it is time for you to consider your 'Why' - why do you want to minimise the mountains of clothes in your wardrobe?
If you can't think of a compelling enough reason - don't worry my pretty little Fox, for now you can relax and catch up on the last two blog posts which will get you on track for when we jump in next week - your 'why' just might be hiding out in there.
