Of course for a former shopaholic, shopping detox is not all smooth sailing. In fact, I sold the Stella McCartney cashmere coat and Isabel Marant x H&M leather pants that I once thought were keepers. While my goal to declutter is still going strong, I am not one to have a capsule wardrobe. At least that is not realistic for now. Instead I am giving myself a pat on the back and going for a healthy sized wardrobe. Shopping is all about trial and error. Like how a heavy cashmere coat wouldn't be practical for my lifestyle nor flatter my petite figure. I can always count on skinny jeans but to play up my rather conservative collection of dark denim, I went for tops with soft textures and patterns. Floral, plaid, stripes are exciting yet demure when kept in a subtle color palette.
