4.10.15 Today’s Outfit (Weekly Wardrobe Capsule)


Cheers, it’s Friday! Today I felt like dressing up again, so I put on a dress that I found at the Goodwill. This dress was a size 10 until I tried my hand at making it fit with my sewing machine. I’m very happy with the result. You’ll see more of the dress later this week. Dresses are an outfit in one piece but I wanted to keep layering so I added the brown leather jacket by New York & Company, given to me by my Mom-in-law last year. Then I grabbed a pair of earrings that my Mom made for me and a pair of sandal wedges from DSW and bam, outfit completed. This is the first time I’ve paired leather with a cotton dress but I like the results. I think the pattern makes a great contrast with the brown and the golden buttons on my jacket. What do you think?

Have courage,

Weekly Capsule April 8 – 15


Ok, so I had to start my capsule mid week this time around but here we go. The items I chose this week. I decided to make pink my accent color and experiment with layering this week. I’m not sure how well things will pan out but I feel pretty hopeful about them. I also bough two pairs of shoes! I still need a few more pairs to have enough variety in that area. I only have a few pairs, most of them being casual, so the next pair or two will be dressy.

Have courage,
Elle
