Still Brainstorming

No sewing, but brainstorming. I am reading my fav mags to get ideas in fabric and shapes and embellishments. It is overwhelming at times because you see so many beautiful garments. I'm in the stage of picking patterns and fabrics. Just looking around the net. What I have decided to do is to plan my fall wardrobe in capsules. Doing either 2-4 pieces with a central theme to help me focus. Also within the capsule highlight one of the fall colors. What you guys think?
