Capsule wardrobe blogs
Caroline Proctor's Unfancy was the second capsule web site that I discovered. I fell in love with her mix of high and low looks, with the emphasis on denim and comfort, but always with an eye toward quality.
To quote Caroline, "Unfancy was born in 2014 out of a desire to find my style and curb my mindless shopping habit." She has been wildly successful at meeting both of those goals.
She is more flexible about the number of pieces in a capsule, generally capping hers at 37.
This blog is a go-to resource for unique pieces from ethical American designers.

Another British blogger, Alyson Walsh, explains her reason for beginning her blog:
"It’s not about age, it’s about style. And this is for every woman who refuses to be invisible.
I’m a freelance journalist, former magazine fashion editor and author. That’s Not My Age began in 2008, when I noticed a space online to celebrate women (and men) of all ages."

Ari Seth Cohen is the blogger/photographer who obviously adores his over 60 ladies.
