In the past men’s and women’s fashion were quite different. Men’s fashion operated within a much tighter framework than women’s fashion and rarely featured anything with big silhouettes (ie avant garde) or dramatic statements. Instead the garments kept the focus on the details of classic pieces with a keen eye to tailoring, and a flair towards military and sportswear styles.
Today the lines between men’s and women’s fashion have become blurred. Fashion sneakers such as the Adidas Superstar are worn by both men and women alike. The same can be said for loafers, oxfords, boyfriend style jeans, and tweed blazers. Plus, men’s clothing is sometimes cheaper than women’s (and better quality), which further encourages crossing over the lines of which sex is wearing what. In today’s day and age, everyone can wear everything! That’s why I keep an eye on both men’s and women’s fashion trends.

Explain what I do with hold items (as well as how many I keep on hold and for how long)
Crunch the numbers to see how many items I’m going to start with when I begin using this capsule
In my last post I began my Summer Capsule Wardrobe Check-In and discussed what was and wasn’t working over the past month. As long-time readers of Shopping Brake already know, I’m a big fan of crunching numbers and analyzing everything. Today I’m going to review exactly what’s inside my 2017 Summer Capsule Wardrobe as well as what the total cost of this wardrobe is.
Summertime is here! But what if your beach body is lagging behind? Or you’ve simply eaten a little too much during your recent vacation? The reason why you have weight to hide doesn’t really matter. What’s important is that you have options in your summer wardrobe that will keep you and most important of all—feeling comfortable. Here are my 3 favorite ways to hide that extra weight when it’s hot outside:
The summer months are a popular time of year for weddings, parties, dates, and galas. This can only mean one thing, finding a dress for all of these special occasions! But what are you supposed to do with your new dress after the special event?
For myself, the dress would typically be found inside it’s garment bag shoved to the back of my closet. Or maybe even in a separate closet other than my daily closet. Regardless of where it was stored, the simple fact remained, after the special event my new dress always sat unworn.
