With changing styles and seasonal trends, it doesn't take long before your clothes can take over your closet and you've lost all sense of organization and order. Mass produced "disposable" clothes have also made a $10 shirt a mindless purchase that is easy to make because it takes very little commitment or funds. But how many times will you wear that shirt and when it falls out of style, how quickly do you get rid of it? Many therapists tout a minimalist lifestyle as a surefire way to rid yourself of some of life's unnecessary stresses and we think the 'Less is More' philosophy is right up our alley.
From day one we have designed our pieces to be classic and never trendy. Using timeless fabrics and coordinating designs allows our customers to build a beautiful, smaller wardrobe that can be worn for years to come. Our Essentials line embodies the minimalist notion entirely as it is inspired by basics in neutral colours that can be paired with just about anything else in the collection. If you start with some choice essential pieces and build on that each season with a few pieces you absolutely love, you can be guaranteed a wardrobe that is simple, sophisticated, and timeless.

It is refreshing to hear people talking about purchasing with intention and curating a wardrobe that you can love and can be confident in. We all change over time and the pieces you might have worn in your thirties no longer work for you in your forties and fifties. Bodies change, styles change, but if you make a conscious effort to invest in flattering pieces in classic patterns and colours, you really can't go wrong.
If you are interested in a wardrobe makeover or closet diet and don't know where to start, we can help! Building countless outfits out of a few staples is our specialty and we love to share this secret with as many people as we can. Drop on by and we will get you started on your own minimalist wardrobe and will have you feeling lighter and less weighed down by the unnecessary pieces in your life.
