*warning: navel-gazey*

I have been reading (and re-reading) Sal's incredibly thoughtful approach to building a smart work capsule. Since I work from home, I often feel like I live in a bubble of unpreparedness as far as dressing for specific occasions goes. I think this might be the ultimate SYC and a great place to focus my shopping efforts for the rest of the year.

I have my day-to-day outfits, I have my comfy at-home outfits. I have a handful of "occasionwear" pieces, but I've never really looked at building outfit capsules for a specific occasion.

If I had to attend a funeral, I'm not wearing a sequin top I bought for new year's, right? Said sequin top may also not be appropriate for a daytime brunch... that kind of thing.... (if it's MY funeral, PLEASE wear the sequins!) Anyway...

Do you have capsules for specific events? What events do you plan for? For example, if you were invited to an impromptu not-cocktail-but-not-casual dinner party, do you know exactly what you would reach for (besides keys to your car to go to the mall and buy something)?
