When we were in NYC last month, I was working with a small so-called “capsule” wardrobe (did you know that term is over 40 years old, and now mentioned daily by approx. 3 million bloggers?). I packed just a handful of basics and knew I could add any extras by thrifting. I have considered taking almost nothing, and relying on the thrift shops, but I am not quite so bold. This woman was – she brought nothing but seven pair of undies for a week-long trip – and gave a cool TED talk about it.
Dressed for a day of walking in perfect Fall weather: I chose men’s linen trousers (similar), an orange striped tee (sim), and pinstripe jacket (sim). The sneakers (sim) were thrifted at the Greenwich Village Goodwill the previous day, and I couldn’t love them more. I didn’t need a single band-aid this trip.
Would you? Travel with almost nothing and shop at your destination? It sounds exciting.
