Capsule Wardrobe Planner & E-Course
I decided to build my own capsule wardrobe when I came to the realisation that I simply could not continue shopping and buying the way I used to. I used to be an impulse buyer, a sale shopping addict, an easily influenced wannabe. Buying clothes that I then regretted the moment I passed my front door was not uncommon. I would hide behind the excuse ‘I’ve had a bad day’ to indulge in hours of late night online shopping which would result in too many bad judgement buys. Sales were my weakness and just a flash of that red sign – giving me the ‘come inside, I’ve got 30% off for you’ eyes – would be enough for me to completely lose self control and send me into crazed panic buying mode. You know the kind, where you scour the sale rack repeatedly because there has to be something worth buying, it’s a sale for goodness sake. You settle on a top that isn’t your size, in a colour you don’t like and in a style you’ll never wear, but it had 50% off so you still gain that instant fuzzy feeling from nabbing such a ‘bargain’. If my impulse buying and sale shopping tactics weren’t bad enough, even my planned purchases were disastrous. I would often make the mistake of seeing a dress on someone else, making it my mission in life to own the said dress – eBay, Depop, give me that dress – to then finally hunt it down, buy it, wear it once, hate it and never wear it again. I was just one big wasting machine in a 5ft4 body.
In 2015 I made the scary but ultimately life-changing leap into capsule wardrobe living. In other words, got rid of the crap that was circulating in my wardrobe, leaving me with just the good stuff. For months, maybe years, I’d read a variety of minimalist fashion blogs, exhausted Pinterest and mentally cleared out my wardrobe, but never had the courage to actually do it. Then, when we sold our house and moved in with my mam for what was meant to be a few months but turned out to be a year, we had to somehow cram in an entire house worth of belongings into one bedroom. I say this gave me an excuse to finally start, but looking back, I had no other choice.
Fast forward 18 months and I’m deep in my capsule wardrobe euphoria. Taking one season at a time and slowly applying my buying less mindset to all areas of my life – do I really need two bags of carrots, or can I make do with just one? I no longer make a detour to the clothing section at the supermarket, nor do I visit any clothing stores if I’m not in my buying process. Clothing just becomes invisible to me for a good chunk of the year, and it feels great. Now I know the old me (you know the overly excited shopper I mentioned earlier), wasn’t an anomaly and I can guarantee the majority of you will have been able to relate in some way to my above shopping experiences.
The question is, do you want this to change?
Do you want to shorten the length of time you take to get dressed on a morning?
Do you struggle to cram any more clothing into your wardrobe but then always feel like you have nothing to wear?
Do your wardrobe pieces flow well, or are they a mish mash of all different trends, styles, sizes?
Do you want to spend less time and money on your clothing?
If the answer to the above questions is yes, then I’ve created a Capsule Wardrobe E-Course + Planner to solve all of your problems. This course will (slowly) guide you through the basics of starting your own capsule wardrobe project, giving you a simpler, more laid back attitude towards what you wear and how you buy.

AllThatIsShe Capsule Wardrobe Planner & E-Course
The planner is an optional tool to help you transition into the capsule wardrobe life with ease. My first ever capsule wardrobe attempt consisted of me donating a ton of items that I no longer wore and keeping the few items that I did – that’s all building a capsule wardrobe entails, right? Actually no. It’s not just about picking a mish mash of clothes that you like, you need to carefully consider your choices, consider your lifestyle, and address any outside factors that may impact your wardrobe. The All That Is She Planner will help you do this. By working through it, you’ll build a strategy on how to compile numerous outfits using only a small number of items. Not only that, but it’s also a great document to revert back to should you ever loose sight on why you’re doing this, and will encourage you to continue should you ever feel doubt.
Now don’t worry, I know how tough this can be the first time around (I’ve been through it myself and stripping away the majority of your wardrobe can cause some major panic attacks), but don’t worry, I gotcha back. Let’s do this.
