Thought about doing a sort of French wardrobe concept in a previous post. Buying less each season and purchase more timeless pieces i'm really missing out there in my closet makes me save money and having a wardrobe what is more combined.
Few years ago, I was like a crazy person running around shops and buying impulsive pieces all the time. They'd end up in charity now. Good for the environment, not for my wallet.
This society is buying more than we need, just because we can. A good start begins with yourself, so this is my beginning.

Some simple rules i have to follow:
- 5 pieces each season, must make a list of which pieces. If i don't, i know myself, i will break the rules.
- Basics and underwear not included. These items are always necessary.
- Only quality. So big no to acrylic/polyester ect... (Did this already).

Some extra's:
- Throw everything out. Items i didn't wore or touched for a year are out.
- Don't do internet shopping. Exception: only with a goal of one of the 5 items.
- Make more items myself instead.

The actual item list is coming up later. Since it's only 5 pieces each season i'll have to think about which one very carefully... (!)
So........ Who's with me?

Wool coat H&M Trend
Scarf from a random store in Rome
Clarks desert boot
Vintage purse

Like them neutrals colors lately. Mixed with some old time favorite black.

I'm thinking a lot about over consuming lately, as i spoke about in a previous post. Why us human buy a lot of things we don't need but simply buy because we can.
So i saw at Sabrina's and Maria's blog the Five piece French wardrobe concept, maybe u should try that out too. Allowing myself to buy only necessary items. Sure something to think about....

P.S. Seems like winter is leaving Holland.... For a day.

Thinking about doing something with androgynous / homonymous and timeless pieces for the next fashion design assignment. Normally i don't do "interesting" shapes in my designs, i'm more of a detail and textiles kinda person. Something different this year, 2014 is all about stepping "out of the box".
