If I find myself stuck in a fashion rut, I find that the easiest way out is to spill the whole contents of my wardrobe on the floor and reinvent each item to suit my newly acquired tastes. This and a quick trip to the local charity shops and vintage shops to get the missing pieces generally results in a happy Mademoiselle Robot. I find it more rewarding than buying lots of different pieces each season. But that is out of the question anyway, as there is no way I could afford to redo my whole wardrobe each season, unless I start selling myself.
Here's what I would pick for myself if I could:
Tops & Bottoms
And finally, this would be my ideal capsule wardrobe for this Spring/Summer. There are lots of unusual colours (for me), clashing with brighter shoes and a pair of light skinny jeans - which I already have.
Basically, I want my Spring wardrobe to be more minimal, more grown up while still being in tune with my usual inspirations & more importantly with myself.
I think I have a teal marching band type jacket somewhere, I can just get that one out, change the buttons, add some feathers & tulle ruffles and boom, instant fashion fix!
Now that's the kind of challenge I like!
What are your inspirations this Spring? Do you ever find yourself in a fashion pickle, and if you do, how do you get out of it?
