Spring Capsule Wardrobe Challenge Countdown

There are just four days to go until the Spring Capsule Wardrobe Challenge.
I have been thinking a lot about what I will wear between Monday and Friday next week.
I am so pleased that it looks like the biggest Capsule Wardrobe Challenge so far with more than 20 of you signed up.
But for anyone not too sure - there's still time.
For a rundown of the rules check out here.
And remember that for those of us in colder climes your are allowed a functional coat, weather-friendly shoes, warm hat, scarf and gloves which will not count as part of your ten items.
And for some more tips I would suggest having a look at the Capsule Round-Up of 2009 where you can see how other bloggers and Flickr fans worked their wardrobe.
As I completed my daily onlne news trawl this morning I noticed that the Daily Mail had an interesting article on stretching a wardrobe wiht some useful tips on layering.
Although I don't plan to use the shift dress I will be picking out a couple of dresses which suit my shape.
And before I sign off I would like to say thank you to everyone who left a comment or emailed me about my previous post.
I asked my husband to read your kinds words and he was overwhelmed.
Today I wore:
Boots - Tesco
Slip - Boden
Drress - FCUK


  1. Hi there-can't wait to see what everyone will be wearing!!

  2. Oh, that gives me an extra item! I was counting my boots as a thing, but I suppose they are weather friendly! I'm all planned and ready to go!

  3. I think I am ready. I've planned a list, but I'll pull it all out and make sure it works like I think it will.

  4. Although I won't be participating, I can't wait to see what everyone has planned :)

  5. i wasnt going to "count" my purse since i use it more for function than fashion (im not counting my work bag, for example since it was bought for function), but now im thinking thats not really fair. what do you think?

    i spend the evening picking out my items and starting to mentally plan. but i may redo my accessories to include a purse, so i dont feel like im cheating...

  6. Yikes I'm going to have to think think think!

  7. Hey Jane,
    I posted your challenge on the YLF forum and a bunch of us are very excited and we are planning to play along.
    Once the challenge is over, I will try to send you a link to everyone's forum posts, but in the meantime, keep us in mind!

  8. This time I'm in. I already have some ideas about the items and hope to have great fun.

  9. I mostly lurk here (sorry!), but I'm thinking I might try this challenge. I'm nervous about finding the time to do the necessary photo-taking and posting, but I've got the wardrobe capsule assembled and ready to go.

  10. The pattern on that dress/tunic is so fabulous!

  11. I'm joining the capsule wardrobe contest, too! I wonder if anyone at work will notice the repeats...

  12. Hi Jane,

    Your idea inspired me so I gave you a shout out on my blog :-)
    I wasn't quite ready for this particular challenge this time, but maybe the next go round.

    Can't wait to see what you do!!

  13. I think I am ready. I've planned a list, but I'll pull it all out and make sure it works like I think it will.
