We did Capsule, before Capsule was Cool

Written by Dede Lewis


Posted on September 08 2017

For years women have been commenting after shopping with us, "My wardrobe is better when I'm pregnant than it is in my 'normal' life!"

The reason for this is, aside from our perfectly curated collection featuring some of the most amazing designers; when you're pregnant you are shopping with more intention. You are, in essence, purchasing a capsule wardrobe. We have been unknowingly selling this way of shopping long before it was a thing, popularized by the minimalist movement.


The simple definition: It's a mini wardrobe made up of really versatile pieces that you completely LOVE to wear.

The other day we had a lovely customer, Mariana, who put together such an effortlessly chic capsule wardrobe we just had to share with you!

These pieces seem to cover the essentials of a wardrobe for work and weekend. They are pieces that can be mixed and matched in interesting ways to create different looks for different activities. Add a pendant or scarf, layer different pieces, and voila! a different look! The pieces can be worn a few times within a work week without it being obvious. The best part is this wardrobe is super comfy at a time in you life you don't want to suffer for fashion.

A minimalist wardrobe is essentially another name for capsule wardrobe. You'd own only the essential pieces you need to look comfy and professional. Yet you still get the benefits of choice and range, because the pieces mix and match to create a number of different outfits.

A typical minimalist (or capsule) wardrobe for women might include:

  • 2 dresses
  • 3 bottoms
  • 5 tops
  • 2 scarfs (like this Cashmere Poncho)
  • accessories
