The 5 Piece French Wardrobe



While innocently trawling on StumbleUpon I found a blog article mentioning the Oh So Chic 5 Piece French Wardrobe. A quick Google and some drooling at various blogger's lists (my favourite from aftrDRK) I found this article on The Urban List that summed everything up nicely for me. This is a discipline, yes, a discipline! And you'll see why...


The older I get the more realistic I have gotten about quality vs quantity. Yes, it's nice to have 40 dresses but odds are you'll only wear 5. So, my goal for 2015 is to stick to these rules and invest in less pieces that are longer lasting. Most women aspire to be as chic as the French and I've become so anti-clutter that it just makes sense!
As you know I've been so very good when it comes to spending lately and I plan to dedicate the rest of 2014 to whittling down my wardrobe to the basics. It's going to be hard, and heart breaking but I really don't have that much space anyway and I truly do wear the same items again and again. Odds are I won't be able to throw everything away so I only own the basics but I can try. And since I'll only be buying 10 items a year (I just got a chill saying that) I'll be down to a capsule wardrobe in no time!
It also helps when you can imagine all the pretty things you will own! Here is my short list of what I plan to buy next year....
