I also made some progress on putting together my February Project 333 capsule. As I mentioned in my previous post, this capsule is just for the one month, to get me back into the cycle that I feel works best with the climate where I am. Some of my considerations for my February capsule include a weekend in Sydney to attend a concert at the Theatre Royal; the general climate for February (hot, generally with highs above 30); and the fact that my capsules don't actually cover my work clothing, which is a uniform.
- one white denim jacket
- two dresses (one sleeveless maxi, one skater)
- four tops
- one cardigan, one long sleeved blouse to be worn as a "topper"
- three skirts
- three pairs of 3/4 pants
- (current total: 15 pieces)
Things of note: I find it really difficult to photograph my clothes, so I try to pic up photos from the internet, preferably from whatever store I've bought it from, but when I'm trying to get photos of older items (or I forgot to find the photo when I bought the item) I just go for vague approximations.
Clearly there is no defined colour palette, which is related to another problem I've discovered: I have far more bottoms than tops. Which is totally not a balanced wardrobe! So, there may be some top-shopping in my near future. I would love to find a more palette-appropriate top that I could swap in for the coral, which really doesn't suit my other colours for this season.
I honestly don't know whether I should add one pair of long pants in case of unseasonably cold weather, but with a pair of 3/4 length jeans in the mix I think I ought to be fine, especially as February is often the hottest month of the year.
Except for the dearth of tops - and needing to make a decision as to whether I add two or three t-shirts for out-of-the-house wear - I think this may be the clothing part of the capsule. Which is not bad at all (but this is, again, only for a month. Three months provides a greater challenge due to climate variations). I'm hoping I can choose four pairs of shoes, and then toss in accessories. The current numbers would leave me with space for about seven accessories, which for me would be a LOT. (That said: two bracelets, one necklace, leaves only four pairs of earrings which - not actually a lot. But then, I've never really had any intention of including accessories (or shoes) in my P333 capsules.
There's still two days left in this month, so I hope I'll be back on Sunday with the final word on my February collection.
