"Edit your life frequently and ruthlessly. It's your masterpiece after all." - Nathan W. Morris #fewerbetter #thegarmentcommunity

And the winners of the @only_child Capsule Essential vote are... drumroll please... πŸ₯ 1A and 2B!!! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» And the gorgeous wool duster vest that I also picked ahead of time because I couldn't risk it not being chosen πŸ™ˆπŸ˜. Thank you to everyone who entered a vote - that was so fun!!! #swipelefttoseethevest #realmodelcallcomingsoon

*VOTING CLOSED - check next post for results* It's VOTING time!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ In case you missed it, we're up to something pretty fun over here. In the interest of helping members of #thegarmentcommunity build capsule wardrobes you love, YOU get to choose the pieces from @only_child that will be featured in the Fall Virtual Pop-Up. Here's how it works... there are two sets of garments (1 - a long sleeved and short sleeved tunic) and (2 - a tunic dress and a wool coat). You get to choose one garment from each set that will then be featured on Real Models. So if I wanted the short sleeved tunic and the coat, I would comment below with "1B and 2B". Make sense?! Then, we'll tally up the votes, announce the winning pieces, and Haley from @only_child will get to work making the samples so we can shoot them at the Real Model shoot on August 14th! πŸ“ΈFun, right?! Can't wait to see your picks! Xx Morgan

Hey #garmentcommunity, remember that time we featured @only_child on these amazing Real Models as part of the Virtual Pop-up this past Spring? Well guess what? Only Child has such fabulous styles coming for fall that we've decided to feature them again. But wait, it gets BETTER... Because this is all about you, YOU get to pick the styles that we'll feature as Capsule Essentials (if you're new here, Virtual Pop-up = discount code πŸŽ‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‰). I've made a short list of options, and the vote will happen tomorrow night. Stay tuned... πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—#tgvirtualpopup #comingmidseptember

A little bit of real life right here πŸ™ƒ. It's a big job, this parenting thing, with lots of little tasks that take up our days. If we're not careful, the clothing piece can take up a big slice... the shopping, the washing, the folding, and the child led choosingπŸ˜¬πŸ˜‰. All this can be made easier by being more intentional about the kids clothes we buy - investing in fewer, better garments and leaving more time for what matters most ❀️. #tgbacktoschoolpopup #comingsoon

Capsule Essential styling tip: untie your @only_child Luzon Tie Front top and tuck those little tails into your jeans for a different look πŸ‘ŒπŸ». Having trouble styling any pieces from previous Virtual Pop-Ups? Comment with your questions below and I'll do my best to answer 😊. #saturdaystyle

"Most of our childhood is stored not in photos, but in certain biscuits, lights of day, smells, textures of carpet." - Alain de Botton

"I'm very interested in truth. In finding ways to be messy and unsure and flawed and incredible and great and my fullest self, all wrapped into one." - @emmawatson this is the most true quote I've come across in some time. Thank you for it πŸ’—

It's a delicate dance, this lean closet one. I, like most of you, want to own what I love. Sometimes that means getting something new. Other times it simply means loving what I own. But it can be tricky for things that are too [insert clothing issue here]. I have some vintage Levi's, for example, that I really like. But nearly each time I put them on, I'd take them off again. That might be ok for a woman with tons of clothes, but for me, they were taking up valuable capsule real estate πŸ‘–πŸ˜. So when my friend @happyinthehood mentioned she was going to part with her Perfect Summer Jeans from Madewell, I snapped those babies right upπŸ¦ˆπŸ‘ŒπŸ». Do you struggle with the temptation to "upgrade"? How do you decide when to go for it? #thegarmentcommunityspeaks

"I am learning everyday to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me." - Tracee Ellis Ross. You guys, isn't this SO good?! A beautiful reminder that we're the ones in the driver's seat. We get to choose whether to step up or step back, to turn towards or away, to speak up stay quiet, to dream or be bored. #sowhatsitgoingtobe #thegarmentcommunityspeaks

If you've been following along for a while now, you will have heard me talk about the fashion tide that seems to be shifting. Shifting from one focused on quantity to one that's about quality. From one that's nothing but fast, to one that's decidedly slow (the willingness of many of you in this community to wait for the @jamieandthejones T-sweater pre-launch strikes me as a beautiful example πŸ˜‰). Last week, I connected with Karen from @avarcascanada (the distributor of these amazing shoes) and she shared that she's seen many of the same last names from the virtual pop-up come up again, especially in small Canadian towns. #thegarmentcommunity, those are your sisters, your mothers, your cousins and your aunts. And it's a sign that this movement is making its way from coast to coast, if not further. You guys, this is so cool. And it wouldn't be happening without you πŸŒŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ™πŸ». #thankyou
