Am I the only one who has seen the French Wardrobe Challenge popping up everywhere - maybe it's a sign? Well it basically consists of buying just 5 items a season (fall/winter and spring/summer) for a whopping total of 10 items a year (yea this kind of seems impossible to me too). Granted basics don't count in this total i.e. white t-shirts, black pants, jeans and all that jazz - which makes this challenge a little bit easier.
While I don't know if I can commit to this challenge (I will give it my best go though) but it did get me to thinking - is less really more? I've heard that Europeans are happier because they have less, and I know for me at least the more stuff I have the more stuff I want.
I want to start spending more on quality vs quantity, because cheap clothes don't last that long - like maybe one or two washes. I grew out of my forever 21 phase when I moved to DC, since the store takes hours to walk through - it is literally the size of an entire block. A Vince tee might be the cost of 15 forever ones (and that is being generous) but the Vince one will outlast every single one of those and will look about 90 times better too.
So, I'm off to give this French Wardrobe Challenge a try and maybe I can look an ounce as glamorous while reading as this French Woman does in this picture.
