Lets recap how many items we have selected for our Capsule Wardrobe so far…

So friends in case you have missed it, we are putting together a capsule wardrobe.  Most people – myself included – have too many items in the closet.  Items which don’t fit as well as they once did and should be given a new home or items which you are not able to part with for fear that your life will no longer have any meaning.

Let the cat out of the bag…

I am going to share something special with you this Sunday.  A few years ago I was introduced to a letterpress company in Cape Town known as the Letterpress Company and dealt with the seasoned Gitanjali who indulged several changes and tweaks and last minute alterations to some work being done.

All their bespoke products are printed using antique, hand-operated equipment using the finest tree-free paper.  Thus making them luxury without a cost to the environment.

So as I write a note to friends about their pending nuptials I have to let the cat out of the bag and share this gem with you…
