Capsule Challenge Update & The Kindness Of Strangers

OK - so we have 21 yeses and two maybes so far for our Spring Capsule Wardrobe Challenge.
But there is still lots of time to prepare and I will be counting down with some tips from the last two challenges.
Bluerose, ShoeGal and Sheila have asked if we can relax the rules on outerwear as it will still be snowing in some parts of the globe during the challenge.
The answer - yes.
In addition to your ten items and five accessories you are permitted one functional coat, one pair of functional gloves or mittens, one functional hat, one functional scarf and one functional pair of snow boots or other essential footwear needed to get from A to B without your feet freezing off!
Totally Inspired has asked for some inspiration and or anyone else who needs some tips then look here for the rundown on last year's challenge and you will see a link to each participant and their choices.
But today back to my planned post.
Biba very kindly sent me a gift which arrived just affter Christmas.
It was beautifully packaged as you can see.
And what a wonderful gift for this time of year - an elegant purse to store tissues.
It is always in my bag and every time I reach for a tissue it reminds me of the kindess of strangers.I would have posted about this earlier but I lost the lovely pictures.
Thank You Biba.

Today I wore:
Jeans - Gap
Top - Zara
Cardigan - Tesco
Tissues - Biba!


  1. I barely have more than ten things as it is!

  2. Hi,

    I have a question, I'm a traveling sales man, so I have to take my laptop with me 90% of the time, would a laptop bag count as a accessory?

  3. I'm not very good with this kind of challenge, but I always like to see your results. They are inspiring! Looking forward to them. Ciao. A.

  4. I don't think I'm in for the challenge this go round. Maybe next season!! But, I look forward to reading your posts.

  5. I might try to do it without the extras, but we'll see how cold it is next week!

    I'm so excited!
