Minimalist Fashion Project 333 Begins
Our closets are full of empty hangers to mark the beginning of minimalist fashion Project 333. I was tweaking my list up until last night. Now that I’ve settled on my 33 items for 3 months, my closet looks bare, simple and surprisingly, inspiring.
Speaking of inspiring, your participation has really given this challenge wings. You are tweeting, facebooking and blogging about what you will wear for the next three months. I really look forward to hearing about your individual journeys and to connecting with you along the way. Keep in touch with me and each other using #project333 on Twitter and contribute to the FB page!
A few years ago, I used to dream about a big, beautiful walk in closet to hold more stuff. Today, I could easily store my clothing and accessories without a closet. (and I am so much happier) Following is my list, links to your lists and other helpful information. Here we go!

- When: October 1 – December 31 (It’s never too late to start so join in anytime!)
- What: 33 items including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear and shoes.
- What not: these items are not counted as part of the 33 items – wedding ring, underwear, sleep, in-home lounge wear, and workout clothing (you can only wear your workout clothing to workout)
- How: over the next two months, outline your 33 items, by the 1st of October, box up the remainder of your fashion statement, seal it with tape and put it out of site.
- What else: consider that you are creating a wardrobe that you can live, work and play in for three months. If you purchase items for project 333, stick with the one in, two out approach. Consider the essentials and stick to 33.
Update: Since I wrote this post in 2010, Project 333 continues to grow and simplify wardrobes around the world. Learn more and join in …
