the no brainer wardrobe {book review}

Since my budget-friendly trends post, I've been more conscious of my wardrobe ((it was my first and only time I linked up with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesdays)) and considerations I should make when I go shopping for clothes.  Two weeks ago, I bought The Tiny Twig's ebook: The No Brainer Wardrobe hoping it would help me think through my wardrobe a bit.  It's a fairly quick read with some homework, perfect for the winter months when you're stuck inside more than usual ((although it's been unseasonably warm around here)).  
My approach to the ebook:
  • I read the whole book in one sitting ((with the exception of the sections that didn't apply to me)); it's 82 pages.
  • I planned when to do the homework assignments
  • I did the assignments and then re-visited the book as I did them ((not to spoil it, but I'll tell you it involves assessing what you own and purging))
What I loved about the book:
  • It didn't make me feel like I had to spend a lot of money to acquire a "less fuss wardrobe" ((Hayley advocates thrift + value shopping, giving helpful guidelines))
  • The homework involved using Pinterest ((it's such a great tool))
  • Photographs illustrate the points ((Hayley included a great balance of photos to show what she was talking about))
  • Inspiration for creating my own look book with items I have on my closet ((I completed this yet))
  • I now have a list of the things I am looking for next time I go shopping ((and if you've been around here for a while you know how I love lists; they totally motivate me))

This coming weekend, I'm hosting a clothing + accessories swap for friends.  I plan to giveaway the items from my closet purge, taking anything remaining to a thrift store or consignment shop.  Hosting this party is one of my winter goals.  I can't wait for the swapping fun to begin!
