I have been focusing lately on trying to minimise my wardrobe. That is not to say I have any immediate plans to adopt ‘minimalism’, if this elaborate blouse and snakeskin print shoes did not make that obvious, but I would like to have less stuff, and better stuff. I won’t be completely abandoning trends (Instagram-based or otherwise) because they bring me a lot of joy and are, I think, one of the easiest ways to experiment with your personal style and expression. I would however like to shift my focus to a capsule wardrobe and some quality pieces (like these Levi’s and this blouse by The Kooples that is so pretty I’m almost scared to wear it) and do trends (like my shoes and bag) as an additional, the icing on the cake as it were, rather than as my centre of attention. And if anyone would like to come round and help me clear out my wardrobe, please hmu.
