Ten-Item Wardrobe Spring/Summer 2015
The Spring/Summer 2015 ten-item wardrobe is here! I had a lot of fun creating this wardrobe, which is (as usual) heavy on the dresses. In this video and blog, I show you what is in the wardrobe (you will recognize many returning pieces) and in next week's "talk-through" video, I will share my inspiration and process as well as discuss new vs. old items.

Madame Chic Inspiring Thought
If you are interested in the ten-item wardrobe but hesitate to get started, make this be the season you take the plunge! Get radical and donate all of the clothes that don't suit you and that are creating confusion in your wardrobe. If you still need more convincing, check out my TEDx talk on the ten-item wardrobe here.
Next week I will be in Japan! I am looking forward to meeting all of the Madame Chic fans in Tokyo.

Comment of the Week
Your message has inspired me so much this past year, Jennifer. I have made subtle but significant changes to my wardrobe and strive to find joy in routine tasks daily. Your post about Swan Lake has inspired me to purchase tickets to see an opera for the first time. I'm taking my mother to see The Magic Flute for mother's day (she has read your book and now seeking the arts is a family affair!). We plan to study the Libretto to get a full understanding of the storyline before the show to further enhance the experience. Thank you for the ongoing inspiration!
ChlsBird, This is so wonderful! I am thrilled that you are seeking out the arts to further enrich your life. Have a wonderful time at The Magic Flute and let us know how it goes!
Thanks everyone, See you next week for the ten-item wardrobe talk-through...
