    Hi there. I just stumbled across your lovely corner of the interwebs by searching ‘anatomy of a wardrobe’ and I was so happy to find this series! I’ve wondered for years what exactly goes into a wardrobe and how I can give my closet the same over arching feel–I suppose that’s the definition of style–and I never think to spend my money on clothing, so when I do shop it’s when all of my clothes are worn out and I spend too much money and while not being able to replace everything I need to. This is exactly what I needed to see in order figure out how to make smart, singular purchases on a regular basis, thus slowly turning the barge that is my style.
    Thanks a million!
    Post Script: I also noticed your mentioning to your readers that they could let you know if they needed prayer for anything and my first thought was, “I knew it!” Isn’t it funny how you can recognize the Jesus in someone else? Unless you meant so you could pray to Vishnu or something.;)

      Victoria, I literally laughed out loud at your last comment. Nope! Jesus Christ alone :) I’m so glad you found GTR! I’m actually working on a project that’s a combination of the anatomy of a capsule wardrobe series and a DIY version of the style coaching I do, so I hope you’ll stick around for that. Looking forward to getting to know you better! Have an amazing day :)
