    What would you put in a capsule wardrobe, if you were starting from scratch...

    I'll soon get to the stage where none of my clothes fit... I've got a some size 16 stuff to tide me over the next month, but after that I'll need to start buying some things - want to be prepared, lol.

    So go on - what would you get?

    well - according to Gok - we all only need 24 key pieces..........................

    I could NEVER surviv on that small amount alone. Anyhow - I guess good staple items have to be a smart pair of black trousers, a smart black skirt & a smart pair of jeans - a jacket that goes with all 3 - a pair of fomal shoes, pair of strappy, dressy shoes and a pair of practical flats. Personally I am a slave to accessories - chunky necklaces, scarves, bangles and matching earrings......

    Crikey - I will be here all night and we havn't even started on tops/bags/other skirts/cardis.................................

    Tillyfloss that is the best! Just buy a few wee cheap things till you get to target then go for it.

    I said on other thread, I would like
    a pretty summer dress
    diesel jeans
    a little black dress
    a business suit
    a strappy sleeveless top

    fantastic topic! Ok here's mine
    7 for all mankind jeans
    Perfect White work shirt
    Pencil skirt
    Tailored black trousers
    Leather bomber jacket

    That's on the wishlist, but I want loads more but have expensive taste so will need to take out a second mortgage to pay for it all! I only wear plain classic stuff and am only going to buy quality from now on, not disposable clothes that I won't wear!

    Between sizes I'm planning on buy the cheapest clothes I can.... ie. George, Matalan and TU. I don't care if I don't look that stylish, it means when I get to goal and splash out on a fantastic new wardrobe I'll look even more amazing! I'm lucky that h2b is giving me a card loaded with a bit of spondoollah to spend on whatever I want if I can get to goal weight.... that day shopping is going to be the most amazing day ever!

    I will be going to a capsule wardrobe, something like :

    Designer jeans (probably a couple of pairs, I love jeans...)
    Tailored suit- which will be jacket, trousers, pencil skirt and waistcoat so I can mix and match ;)
    A summer dress that I can accessorize to make it a bit smarter for evenings
    A nice skirt
    A light weight jacket (I already have a mucho expensive cream wool coat that I WILL get back into for winter)

    stop it - all of you - I want to go shopping now - and the shops are not even open yet !!!!!!!

    Oh - and apart from the fact I have no money and I have a double wardrobe full of things I can no longer fit into anyway...................
    minor detail I guess - I will return to that wardrobe at some point in the hopefully not too distant future lol

    What a lovely goal to hang onto though - I think that it is a good idea to buy expensive classic pieces once at goal - I always buy cheap throwaway fashion which I repeat every year - buy cheap - wear it throughout the season - get rid - summer comes round again the following year - buy cheap - wear it throughout...........ra ra ra and so the cysle is repeated - bit like my dieting history for the last couple years - starve - lose - eat - gain - anyways - I do go on - SORRY :) - now back to shopping - are those shops open yet....................................:D:D:D:D

    I've been in the charity shops every week looking for stuff. If you have time to rummage theres always stuff from next, markies, debenhams etc and for only a few pounds you get nice clothes for a few weeks before you drop another size. I donate the stuff back again when i'm finished with it!

    Porgeous you look stunning...I want to wear an outfit like yours and look as good. I especially want to wear a belt that I don't mind showing! Usually that area is covered by baggy tops...I want a waist again.

    This echos my thoughts exactly.
    I've always bought things on the hop and whatever makes me look as thin as I can.

    Loved the 7 for all mankind jeans that you posted a link for on here and found out there is an outlet store in Orlando.

    When I go there I'm going to buy a capsule wardrobe that will include:

    Classic white shirt
    Little black dress
    A few pairs of jeans
    A mac
    A few suits for work
    Pinafore dress
