Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I updated what my Capsule Wardrobe is looking like these days, so here goes! If you want to see my journey towards slower, more intentional fashion bought ethically to honor the hands that make it, and the earth that supplied the materials, and the God who made it all possible, read some of these posts:
Closet / Capsule Posts:
Remember my closet is a MIX of old clothes that I have had for a while, not purchased ethically, and of new, ethically made, sustainably sourced items. Not only it is not feasible (financially or for brain space reasons) to have a complete turn over in one’s closet, but it’s not, at the end of the day, environmentally beneficial or ethical to do that – one of the main points of slow fashion is to decrease overall demand for clothes, and while I am replacing items that have worn out or don’t fit, I am hanging onto clothes that still work, until they don’t!

As someone who has chronic illness and autoimmune conditions, I know I should be doing everything I can to help out my body and set my health on the right track.
But my health is not my full time job, not is it my full time interest. So I am just trying to make the next best decision I can. I just try to do the next right thing. Continue reading A Cleaner Life… One Step at a Time
This is a resource I plan on updating over time, referencing lists other lovely people have made and adding to this list as my own research continues.

So as I have alluded to my reasons so far in my first two posts about my closet: the mess I started with, and how I went about changing it, but let me reiterate a crucial point: I am not fashionable. I guess I have a “style” since I wear clothes and have a certain aesthetic taste, life priorities that shape my decisions about what I wear and how I spend my time and money. Continue reading closet: spring / summer 2017 capsule, with ethical upgrades and additions!
You might remember this big pile of clothes from this post, where I dive into my “style evolution”! That phrase is still hilarious used in the context of who I am as a person – not one concerned about fashion or clothes, but deciding to make a change for the better, intentionally simplifying and using my clothing purchases to impact the world for good.

My journey to a (slowly-evolving ethical) capsule wardrobe // part 2
Find part 1 here, where I explain my closet before project 333 and how project 333 went.
So on April 3rd, 2017, I got home from a Friday-Sunday retreat around noon and opened the door to my hall closet, shuddered, and shut it again.

My journey to a (slowly-evolving ethical) capsule wardrobe
As a precursor, I am not a fashionista, nor am I someone who pays attention to or adheres to trends. I am just a big fan of the “just-in-case” approach to life. What if I need these…. just in case? I have an outlook that says – I can imagine a future where I might want to wear this, or what if I lose a few pounds or gain a few or what if I start loving pencil skirts?
Continue reading Closet, Simplified
Here’s a little categorical overview of how I came to stumble on simplicity as a challenging concept that keeps changing me in new ways to better steward my time, possessions, space, resources, and gifts – all for the glory of God.
So often, I can get stuck in my North Dallas bubble and justify so many things as necessary that to the majority of the world would seem lavish approaching insanely wasteful. Usually I feel like I know where the line is, but 2016 brought that line much further back, and it continues to move back as the needs of the world press in. Doing something is better than doing nothing, especially if that something is well-thought out and researched and contemplated. As with so many things that are true, it’s impossible to return to old ways of living when the light finally shines through.

2017 has been pretty much all bone level changes so far. God is remaking from the inside out. He has been preparing me for this since I was 8, started when I gave my life to Him at 21, and this will continue until He takes me home.
With all these crazy and significant changes going on, I thought I would share some of those places He is growing and refining me, and the places where He is breaking me.
“Look among the nations, and see;
wonder and be astounded.
For I am doing a work in your days
that you would not believe if told.”
