We are well into the new year (10 days in). Coming out of the busyness of the holidays and New Year, I was left drained physically, mentally, and emotionally.

[The Closet Chronicles] The Final Stretch (aka “We’re Gonna Go…SHOPPING!!”)

It’s finally coming to an end, everyone! When I started this “Capsule Wardrobe” process, I didn’t think it would take over a month of work to finalize.
