WHAT WILL YOU GAIN FROM A CAPSULE WARDROBE?
Hi, I’m Leanne!
Just a few years ago my closet was packed full of clothes, but I felt likeI had nothing to wear. Why?
Because I had too many clothes withdifferent patterns and shapes and they didn’t mix well.
It was difficultto put together an outfit. I felt I had to keep buying clothes to be ableto have an
outfit to wear. I was frustrated and stressed! One day I had enough of my unnecessary
spending on clothes andknew there was a better, less stressful way of getting dressed.
I simplified my wardrobe by having a certain number of clothes andshoes
that would coordinate with one another. Now, it takes me halfthe time to get dressed everyday!
This capsule wardrobe concept has worked for me and I’m confidentit will work for you too!
I used to spend $1,000 to $2,000 every yearon clothes and shoes. Now, I only buy a few pieces a year.
Are you ready to have confidence, get dressed quickly, have many outfits at your fingertips
AND save money each year? You’re just one click away from your own capsule wardrobe!
“Thank you! LOVE THE e-BOOK! I’ve purchased a few others from you and now have most of the items in this one. It really does make getting ready easier. Keep up the good work! –Rhonda M.
I discovered your capsule guides earlier this year and this concept has made a huge difference in my life. Having the year-round layout is going to be awesome. I just wanted you to know how much you have blessed me these last few months and I look forward to another level of organization and feeling good about myself too! –Brenda V.
The Simplified Style Book is the best fashion investment I have ever made. I use it almost every night as I plan the next day’s outfit. And now that I have all the pieces, I don’t shop haphazardly anymore and that saves me so much money and buyer’s remorse! –Rhonda B.
I do buy some of the more colorful pieces from your other books to mix in, and I do appreciate that you make those available on your blog.
I absolutely love the Simplified Style Capsule eBook. I can easily adapt each outfit for my office job. I can also stop chasing trends and rest within my own style preferences. Thank you for making this possible! –Gina B.
I love this product! Its beauty is its simplicity. I have used it to create my own “career wardrobe.” As an elementary music teacher, I can’t wear jeans, but I have to sit on the floor all day. Most career capsules are not helpful! It was easy to sub in dress ankle pants for the jeans and nicer tops for the tee’s in the capsule. Of course, I use the casual outfits as well! I especially love that since the capsule pieces are all neutral, I can keep all my “accent color” pieces rather than feeling like I have to go buy new ones. Thank you so much for a wonderful product! –Rhonda B.
I recently purchased Simplified Style e-book and I want to applaud you for including “Investment” choice options. This is what sets you apartfrom other capsule type blogs/vlogs/etc. The Investment choices allow me to buy items I will wear for years, and look better while wearing them. My lifestyle needs clothes that are a bit more upscale. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for including this option. I recently bought a cashmere turtleneck from Brooks Brothers (never in a million years would have thought to shop there) and am over the moon with the quality. I discovered your website/blog a few months ago and would like to thank you for teaching me so much. I am much more organized and have loved several of the items that I have purchased. I have also studied other ‘capsule’ type blog/vlogs and yours is the most comprehensive. –Nancy N.
Thank you very much for putting together the Simplified Style capsule – it is just what I have been wanting! It is classic and versatile, with easy to find items at the price point that works in my budget. I can add my own personality in the accessories to make it my own. This will make my daily thought about what to wear much easier so that I can focus my energy on other things and feel confident that I am “put together” while going about my day. –Amy H.
I use Simplified Style but adjust my colors with the seasons similar to the essential ebooks. Looking forward to reaching a year of building my wardrobe. Just a few items to add then I can focus on replacing with quality pieces over time. I never would have known where to start without Leanne’s guidance! –Angela B.
“This eBook is exactly what I needed! I get dressed so much faster now. I’ve always had trouble coordinating my clothes, but your outfits guide makes it simple for me now. Thank you!”– Christy P.
