Fashion is ever-changing. But capsule wardrobes aren’t! You may have heard of a “capsule wardrobe” also referred to as “closet staples.” They are pieces of clothing that will transcend fast fashion and will be a part of your wardrobe for years. As such, the pieces that you select need to be high quality to ensure a long lifetime. Here are some recommendations to ensure a high quality capsule wardrobe in 2023!
Capsule Wardrobe 2023
The key to a completely well rounded closet is to pick colors and styles that do not go out of style. Most generic colors will suffice as a staple color. It’s more of the more specific colors like neon yellow, hot pink, mint, lilac, etc that are not considered capsule wardrobe colors. These kinds of colors move with seasons and with current fashion trends. Whereas colors like black, white, royal blue, deep red, tan, etc are solid choices no matter what year or season.
As for styles, you’ll want a long coat, a blouse, regular tee, a pair of jeans, a sweater, and a cardigan. Essentially, you just need one of each more popular type of clothing. Remember, these things will be with you for years. That being said, the only way to ensure that they stand the test of time is to purchase high quality or luxury pieces.
Where to Get Closet Staple Clothing
A brand that focuses exclusively on offering high quality, closet staple pieces is FibFlx. It stands for “fiber (premium fibers only) + flexible (staying resilient in chaotic times)”. Their clothing brand was created to simply life and focus on what’s really important – making simplicity through versatility. Fibflx is literally helping you pick a capsule wardrobe closet instead of following quickly fading fashion trends.
These are my favorites from their site:
Everything on their site is made through sustainable practices. And their high quality products make it easy to understand their price point. Their highest prices are for their long jackets and you can expect to pay around $330 for those. However, they average about $100 per piece for most of their catalog. Obviously, that is a very large commitment to just one piece of clothing! But if you keep it for five years, that’s an average of $20 a year. Which, if you buy a low quality product, could very well cost you $20 per year to keep replacing it. Buying a high quality piece of clothing once is much more logical than buying a lower quality with a lower life rate.
Fibflx Coupon Code
For an extra special bonus, I have a Fibflx coupon code for you! Use the code DGB15 for 15% off. Use the savings to keep updating your closet until you have your very own complete capsule wardrobe! You can find this, and other popular coupon codes, on my Sales and Coupon Codes page.
I have written so many Shein Disney Bound blogs and, with it, provided a great list to choose from. However, it’s time to update the list! And this time, I am focusing on park-friendly outfits. By park-friendly, I mean that you can easily and comfortably wear these into any Disney park. But don’t think jeans and a t-shirt. These Shein Disney outfits are for those who love looking cute in the park. Who love making Disney content. Who always attend Dapper Day every year. Sound like you?
If so, then here is a MASSIVE list of characters for your next SHEIN Disney outfits:
Marie from the Aristocats
Dare to be classy during your next park day with this cute Shein Disney Bound of everyone’s favorite lady.
We love a good villain gender bend Disney Bound! To mimic Captain Hook’s hook hand, you could always get a silver glove for one hand.
Next time you find yourself on Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, you will need this perfectly on point outfit.
Russell from Up
This is a great outfit for summers in the parks. Especially when you prefer function over flare. Be sure to do a character meet and great with Kevin!
Jane from Tarzan
Jane’s outfit closely resembles Belle’s. The key to make the distinction is to have the purple bandana. And having a monkey plushie would help too!
You’ll love this Shein Disney outfit as much as Gaston loves his reflection. And I’m sure he would agree.
Tiana is FINALLY getting the love she deserves in the park. Not only with a brand new ride, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, but with a new restaurant at Disneyland too!
We all need a classic character to Bound every once in a while. And it doesn’t get more classic than the main mouse himself.
I know what you’re thinking. “A corset isn’t park-friendly.” But this is perfect for Dapper Day. Or for those who like dressing up while in the park!
I am seriously adding everything to my cart as we speak. There could not be a more perfect Shein Disney Bound for Spider-Man than this.
Belle’s defining accessories are going to be books and roses. Be sure to have the classic rose-colored pop of color to make the distinction!
Ralph from Wreck It Ralph
Wreck It Ralph is definitely an underrated movie. Give it some love with this Shein Disney outfit!
One of the most famous scenes in Sleeping Beauty is the “make it pink, make it blue” scene. You can use one of these sets or both to create some really fun transition content. Or you can mix and match them!
Playboy, billionaire, fashion icon. Turn heads while you’re saving the world. Getting apperloth items are great for superhero Disney Bounds.
Remember that your Disney Bound essentially comes down to how you accessorize. Make sure your Merida outfit has some sort of bow and arrow accessory!
If that isn’t the perfect shirt for Black Panther, then I don’t know what is. Keep it simple with mostly black with some slight pops of silver.
Again, this shirt SCREAMS R2-D2. And although the listed items come from Shein, I personally would opt to get the exclusive R2-D2 Loungefly from 707 Street to complete the look.
Although all of these Disney inspired outfits are from Shein, this is not your only option. I make most all of my Disney Bounds by purchasing clothing at the thrift store. If anything this list should serve as inspiration! Use the collages as a reference point to find what suits you. And better than that, be sure to check your closet first before shopping for something new. Disney Bounding can be a rather expensive hobby so being resourceful will help you in the long run. Not to mention that I made these collages with the intention of using different items for every single character. But in reality, when I make my Disney outfits, I am constantly reusing the same pieces in different ways. And you should too!
Are you a Disney adult? Do you also like thrifting? Good thing you said yes for both because the hot, trending Anaheim thrift store, Thriftyland 101, is the perfect place for you!
Where is Thriftyland?
It is located at 842 N Euclid St, Anaheim, CA 92801. That’s just ten short minutes away from Disneyland!
The parking situation is a little confusing, at least it was for me. But I parked in the neighborhood that was adjoined to the same block and walked the short distance inside.
What does this Anaheim thrift store offer?
Being so close to Disneyland, I’m sure you can imagine what it’s specialty is. You guessed it – Disney merchandise. Some of them are directly from the Disney Parks and still have the tags on them! Jackets, hoodies, sweatshirts, and tees for everyone. They also offer a number of different Disney toys and plushies.
This isn’t the entire store though. Only about half of the store’s products are Disney brand. Not only did I buy myself a Disney shirt, but I got a plain, black v neck long sleeve. What can I say? I needed to update my wardrobe with some non-Disney picks.
Thrifting is a great way to live a sustainable life. Giving these clothes new life keeps the cycle going. It also keeps these clothes out of landfills. It’s amazing that Thriftyland is offering places for Disney fans to come together to get merchandise on a budget.
What are the prices like?
Prices are very fair! Normally when shopping Disney items at thrift stores, they tend to not even really be marked off. I was happy to see that these prices were very affordable. Even the ones that still had tags on them were priced reasonably.
I wonder how many awesome Anaheim thrift stores like Thriftyland are out there?
Are you struggling to create a perfect fall travel wardrobe capsule this year? Fall requires you to dress up warm and flaunt your fancy jackets. You may be tempted to carry all of your fancy fall outfits. But your wardrobe only has limited space! So what do you need to pack?
What is a travel capsule wardrobe?
Simply put, a travel capsule wardrobe are clothes that will never go out of style. Otherwise known as having a “staple closet”. You could put these items into a time capsule and if someone opened it decades later, they would still be in style. They usually involve solid colors, classic prints, and simple structure.
Putting together a travel capsule is a daunting task. It challenges you to only pack essential pieces of your wardrobe into a limited space. However, his doesn’t mean that you should compromise on your style!
Creating Your Travel Capsule
Your travel capsule should consist of simple yet sophisticated pieces of clothing that complement each other. Don’t forget, you’ll need clothing, accessories, and footwear. Wearing accessories and jewelry will always help to bring your outfit to life. If you are looking for timeless pieces, it is best to shop at top jewelers such as https://diamondexpert.com/diamond-reviews/best-jewelry-stores-in-houston/. Furthermore, you could put these items into a time capsule and if someone opened it decades later, they would still be in style.
Take a look at your wardrobe and pick all fall-friendly outfits. Plaid, slouchy, or earth-colored items will be what you are looking for. You can always shop for ideal pieces if your wardrobe still lacks the fall style. The trick is to shop for your pieces on wholesale clothing websites. You get the best deals for your wholesale boutique clothing as the prices are comparatively lower.
So let’s create a practical fall travel capsule wardrobe! Here are the essential pieces, and corresponding colors, that you should include in your fall travel capsule wardrobe.
1. Tops for your fall travel capsule wardrobe
Your travel wardrobe capsule should contain the following essential top colors.
You can never go wrong with a black or white tee for any day, any outfit kind of looks. Plain tees are easy to style and match. But be sure to add hunter green and mauve into the mix. You will help to compliment the beauty of fall even more with these two colors!
If your travel spans longer than expected, add a black long sleeve tee to your capsule.
2. A Jacket
Nothing screams sophistication more than a well-fitted and cozy jacket. For your travel capsule wardrobe, you’re only going to include one jacket as you need to save on space. So it has to be a staple of a jacket! Include either a solid black, or a brown plaid jacket. These two options have always stood the test of time for fall.
3. A Pair of Leggings
Leggings are great as they can be included with many outfits. Whether that be under a skirt or under a big, slouchy sweatshirt. Leggings are also comfy and cozy, making them ideal for travel. Pack a pair of light tan or black leggings to go in your fall travel capsule wardrobe. And since they are relatively small, you may even consider bringing both colors with you!
4. A Pair of Jeans
Jeans are probably one the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own! You can dress them up or dress them down with ease. White, blue, or khaki jeans are a great addition to your travel capsule wardrobe. But if you’re low on space, keep it to a pair of distressed blue jeans.
The shoes make the outfit, so make them good picks! The absolute must styles are:
a pair of formal heels
a pair of sneakers or other casual, no-heeled shoe
a pair of boots or booties (Nordstrom Rack has the best options for these)
The colors you should consider getting are black, brown, and one patterned pair of shoes. This could mean cheetah or leopard print, camo, a shoe with a graphic on it, or even textured like a cowboy boot. Fall involves a lot of solid colors and layers. Having a pair of printed shoes can break up that monotony and also add pizzazz to your outfit!
6. A Sweatshirt
Slouchy sweatshirts are your best friend in fall. You will need:
Colors should be up to your personal preference! All of these options should be able to wear under a jacket if it gets a little colder. There is a lot of layering to do in fall!
7. A Scarf
A scarf is another way to add printed or textured colors to your outfit. If everything else is solid colored, even down to your shoes, a scarf can be that last piece of the puzzle for your outfit. Although infinity scarves are the easiest to get on and off, unfortunately they would not make it in a capsule wardrobe. They have come in and out of being in style for awhile. Instead you will want to stick wit the traditional two-ended scarves. You should get one cream colored scarf, and at least two different pattern-printed scarves.
Finishing your fall travel capsule wardrobe
Creating a wardrobe that lasts can sometimes be expensive. That’s why the best way to update your wardrobe on a budget is to stay as true to timeless pieces as much as possible. Just remember that a capsule wardrobe, especially one for traveling, can be something that you pack up one year and unzip it 10 years from now and the fashion will still be applicable. Relying on great quality items will be the only way these pieces can last so long. Be sure to shop brands that you trust. Although the price tag may be daunting to begin with, the life span of the piece is what will help make it a true closet investment.
If your Tik Tok ads are anything like mine, then maybe you have seen an ad or two from Pair Eyewear. And if you haven’t heard of them, then you absolutely need to! This review of the interchangeable glasses from Pair Eyewear will definitely change up your perception of wearing glasses on the daily.
Out with the old…
One of the reasons that I won’t get a tattoo is because once it’s there, it’s there forever. I am not really a fan of that level of permanence when it comes to what I put on my body. That also includes my personal fashion and the accessories that follow.
Usually when I purchase glasses, I get the style that I can wear with almost anything. That’s not exactly fun because not every pair of glasses will work with every outfit. And I am not buying multiple pair of prescription glasses for the sake of being able to change them out for one outfit.
And in with the new interchangeable glasses from Pair!
Enter Pair Eyewear to the sponsored ads that get pushed to my feed every day. (Seriously Pair, are you spending all of your ad dollars on getting your content in front of my face?)
What drew me to their brand was the fact that they had these magnetic top frames that you could place on top of your prescription glasses. The top frames were listed at about $25 a piece for most. That’s a heck of a lot cheaper than buying all new glasses.
I also wanted to get blue light filtering glasses since I spend so much time staring at screens. Pair was the first brand that I found that did this for prescription lens!
How much does Pair Eyewear cost?
I bought the crystal clear Casper prescription frames for $60. I added on blue-light filtering for an additional $49. And because I wanted a way to jazz up my frames, I also purchased a Spider-Man top frame for $30 and a Silver Sparkle frame for $25. I was also able to use a referral code from Pair Eyewear that gave me $25 off of my first order with them! This coupon is only good as long as your order is over $85 before the coupon is applied.
In total, I spent $150 after the coupon and taxes for my Pair Eyewear order! For purchasing glasses, this is an incredible price.
Overall, I adore these glasses and the interchangeable frames. I have even purchased two more frames since my first order: giraffe spots frames and a sunglass topper! I really enjoy being able to easily go from outside to inside without having to change out my glasses. With my glasses from Pair Eyewear, I can just take my sunglasses top frame off and I’m good!
I highly recommend switching to Pair the next time you are considering getting new glasses.
