Well folks, it seems I’ve made it! This will be my final update for my Winter Capsule Wardrobe and my first Project 333 Challenge. Although the weather in Ottawa is being incredibly stubborn (it’s snowing as I write this…) I have decided to end my challenge updates. I will likely still continue to wear this wardrobe for another week or so depending on the weather, but hopefully the odds will be forever in my favor .
For another week I somehow managed to come up with unique outfits using only the items from my winter capsule wardrobe. I did go ahead and dig out some of my spring/summer shoes (Native Footwear and Toms) but I don’t include footwear in my 33 items so I’m not cheating! Many of my outfits this week were built around the same Joe Fresh t-shirt that I own in three different colors. These t-shirts have been a part of my wardrobe since 2012 (I bought them when I was pregnant) and although they are not a sustainable brand, I have worn them so much over the years and they have held up amazingly well. I am very supportive of companies who take a slow, considerate, deliberate and sustainable approach to their design, manufacturing and distribution practices, however, I realize that tossing out all the clothing that I purchased in the past that I love, and replacing it with items that meet that specific criteria is neither ecologically-friendly, nor financially realistic.
I am super stoked to dive into my spring/summer wardrobe. It is not completely set in stone (I am a procrastinator by nature) but I imagine that I have enough to work with for now. I hope that this project was helpful, inspiring, opinion-forming and whatever else it could be. I love styling outfits, shopping, talking about fashion and helping anyone I can feel good about what they wear. Which is why I have created a forum on my page, I would love to encourage a community of fashion-lovers to have a place to talk, ask questions and help one another find answers. The link for my Fashion Talks Forum is in the menu bar at the top of my website. Feel free to start a thread and engage a conversation with other readers from around the world. Thank you for your continued support and I hope to connect with you there!
