With this dress and the pants I wore on Tuesday, I'm deviating a little from the rules of "the capsule wardrobe." I say that somewhat facetiously, because really, who makes the rules for these things anyway? I do appreciate what I've learned from the whole experience, but I'm not going to pass up a dress I know I'll wear for years because of an arbitrary rule that says since I didn't plan on buying these things, I shouldn't. However, I can credit creating capsule wardrobes these past few seasons for developing a better understanding of what I like and what I'll wear, so that I can be smarter about my purchasing.
Even before I started doing capsules I've always made a list and tried to stick to it when shopping. Do you plan your purchases and shop from a list, or do you wait to see what's out there first?
