Join The Annual Spring Capsule Wardrobe Contest


I have been feeling very blah this January/February.
My remedy?
A new Capsule Wardrobe Contest.
Last autumn 18 of you joined in the fun.
I promised to run one a season.
I apologise for the slightly longer delay but I am feeling full of the joys of Spring now - lots more energy.
I declare the week beginning March 1st 2010 the Annual Spring Capsule Wardrobe Contest.
If you are new to the blog you can read all about the last challenge here.
For a recap on the rules here we go:
Choose ten items of clothing from your wardrobe and mix and match them for five days between Monday March 1st and Friday March 5th.
You can have any combination of shoes, dresses, skirts, tops and jackets as long as it adds up to ten individual items.
You are also allowed five accessories which include jewellery, scarves, bag, belts etc.
Underwear and hosiery do not come under the ten items and five accessories!
If you are joining the challenge please blog about it and if you want to appear in my Capsule Wardrobe Challenge round-up the following week then please email your pics to workthatwardrobe@googlemail.com

  5. I'm really going to try to give it a go this time around. Also, I'm going to make it part of the Fab Finds Under $50 monthly outfit inspiration calendar for March, if you don't mind. Its a great way for all of us to "make the most"!

  9. I would love to participate. But spring? The winter is supposed to last another two months here in Denmark. So I will already have to count 3 accesories from hat/gloves/winterscarf. But I'm trying anyway.

  10. I'm all over this! Thanks for reminding me. :)

  11. I am thinking about joining in this time. Does a coat count as one of the 10 items? I can't remember the rules from last time.

  12. OOh can't wait to peek in on this!

  13. I'd like to join but I spend most of my weekdays in scrubs...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm in! I love doing this! Thanks for the reminder. :)

    I would request that outerwear not count towards our items, as it is still pretty cold in parts of the world, and having to count four of the clothing items (scarf, gloves, hat, coat) would be pretty hard. I am totally for counting more dressy scarves and gloves (and hats!), but can you make an exception for cold-weather outerwear?

  15. I have never ever done anything like this before and will have to post my pictorial updates to my Flickr but even so... I want in! I think it will be fun and I love any sort of challenge that stretches my creativity. Thanks!

  16. I'm currently visiting my parents, so I limit my "Internet time" to 5 minutes in the morning, on my cell phone. When I saw your comment on my blog about this capsule wardrobe, I knew I had to log into a computer and sign myself up! Looking forward to it - if I wasn't four hours away from my closet, I'd start my planning now!

    Also, I have to agree with Sheila's comments - we're still in the land of ice and snow in March, and winter coats, boots, scarves, toques and mitts would take up most of my items, and there is no way I could do without for a week!

  17. Oh, count me in! I found about the last challenge a week too late. Now I have plenty of time to prepare--woohoo!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sounds like fun! I'm definitely in; I'll blog about it tomorrow! Thanks!

  20. I think I will give it a try.. where can I get inspiration for my ten pieces??? I think I'll need help with that part, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi there-very best of luck to you and the rest of the participants. I won't be joining as I wear a work uniform every day, but I'll enjoy seeing how everyone gets on!!

    ReplyDelete

  24. Just found your blog through a comment on Fashion for Nerds. Count me in too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'd love to play again. :)

    Will outerwear/coats/gloves count towards the 10 items, or no? I hope not since it's winter, but I could manage wearing the same coat all week.

  30. I'm in! I'm a new reader and I'm excited to play! I won't have to worry about the coat, scarf thing though, I'm in Indonesia so it's full blown summer for me!

  31. I hope it isn't too late to join in, I'm rounding up my articles of clothing as I type this - actually feeling a bit scared, this really feels like a true sartorial challenge for me

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm a first-timer as well; I've just finished rounding up all of my pieces. This is such a neat idea! I'll definitely be blogging about this!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm a newbie but I'm so in on this challenge (I love a good challenge). Also doing the March inspiration calendar from FabFindsUnder50 (where I found out about this challenge).

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great idea! Hi, I'm joining up after seeing a couple peeps mention it. Here is my post and I'll be sure to add your blog to my RSS feeds.

  35. Saw this mentioned over at wardrobe remix and am feeling inspired. I'm already dressed for todaym, so I guess I'll be living with these three items, but I'll mix and match another 7 tonight. Presumably I don't have to factor in my sporty activities to the 10? (If so, spinning and xc ski gear will be tough, okay, impossible to include).

    ReplyDelete
  36. Alright - I'm in! Here's my post. (Hope I've got that url in there).

    ReplyDelete
  37. This sounds like so much fun- I'd be up for it next time (or whenever I can rejoin my wardrobe, most of which is packed away for a big move).
    Neat blog you have here! I found it through Julia at Song of the Exile blog.

  38. Oh I am In !!!!!! Just saw this posted on Chic on the Cheap... I am already committed to what I wore yesterday and today... so this may be a bit hard!
