Going through my closet trying to edit wisely, one area always gets passed over because I don't know what to do...the Special Occasion Capsule. By that, I mean things to wear to a dressy event..a formal wedding, a ball or gala...fancy dress. Shopping for this area is almost as bad as shopping for a swimsuit. Past experience has taught me to be at least partly prepared. Events like this are very rare for me but can come up suddenly. DH tends to mention invites at the last minute, probably because he doesn't care for them.
I want to have something that looks great on me for every season but, because these events are rare, I'd rather not spend much money on something I will only wear once or twice.
What is your strategy for these things? I need to edit and don't know where to start.
