I’ve just completed the Fall French Capsule Challenge. And as with prior weeks (week one here and week two here) I have a few final observations. Let’s jump right in to what I discovered during this challenge.
1. No one notices repeats but me
Working with such a small number of clothes, meant I was repeating items more often. And usually in the same handful of combinations. Once I find a combination I like, I tend to stick with it. Yet the only one who seemed to notice that I was repeating items, was me. At least I don’t think so, since no one ever said anything to me.
2. The most important person to please, is me
Tagging along on the observation above, if no one else is noticing my outfits (or at least no one is saying anything to me) then the only person I have to please, is me. If I want to sport the same outfit every week, well then, why not right? And in the same vein, if I want to shake up my look, well that’s fine too. As long as I am happy with my outfits.
3. Less clothes garner more compliments (?)
While no one mentioned my outfit repetition, I did notice more compliments than I usually receive on my outfits. But why? Was it because I assembled a flattering capsule of clothes, perhaps? Or, was it because people saw the outfit often enough to remember to compliment me on it? Hmm….
Do you have a favorite wardrobe challenge that you have completed?
