Sustainable But Not Minimal

A while back I did a little survey to ask my Instagram followers to chime in on capsule wardrobes.  The majority of those who replied said they did not have a capsule wardrobe and there were some reoccurring themes as to why.

Curated Thrift Fashion For Sizes 10+

Curated thrift and vintage sites. I love them! I love perusing items people have hunted for and I’m a sucker for anything that is presented in a beautiful way.
