Over the coming weeks and months, I will be providing you with tools to better navigate your shrinking wardrobe and sharing ways to apply Project 333 to other areas of your life. This website will get prettier and we will all grow in this journey together.
Here is what some of you have to say about Project 333
“I highly recommend participating in Project 333. It helped me re-evaluate the contents of my closet and dresser, and gave me confidence to actually purge the unnecessary items from my wardrobe. More than that, participating in Project 333 has given me fresh insight into what’s important to me in life, beyond just the clothes I wear.” –Pierre Bastien
Project 333 is teaching me so much about need versus want versus usable items. I cleaned out my coat closet today and found that I had over 10 fuzzy jackets. Sporty fuzzy jackets. I love them, but what the hell am I going to do with 10 of them. Cleaning out what I really need and what I will really wear makes me feel good all over! –Christina Scovel
What I have realized since making my list, purging a few things, donating a few others, and even acquiring a piece or two, is that Project 333 is not meant to make you live like a pauper. It is meant to make you regain control over yourself, your wardrobe, your identity, and your consumptive nature. It is actually more freeing than confining; more liberating than imprisoning. –Andrew Odom
Project 333 has taught me to consider my clothes and accessories in a new way. Rather than thinking that I need more clothes, that I have to wear the latest trend, I’m confident now that I can take my basics, bring my attitude along, and feel more stylish than I would with a closet full of cheap knockoffs. –Beverly Army Williams
It’s awesome. It’ll streamline your wardrobe and help simplify your life. –Jody Elliot
My Fashion Confessions
I spend more on clothes than I need to. While I have included a few pieces that are less than $20.00, I’ve spent more on most of the items in my 33. Why? This project has become part of my lifestyle. I hope to develop 4 seasonal capsule wardrobes that will last for many years. I find that good quality clothing lasts longer and fits me better. I did shop sales, but consider my wardrobe a long term investment.
I just completed my collection for Phase 2 . I mentioned in the new rules of Project 333 that you could use the first week of January to get your collection together if needed. I took full advantage of that rule and am finally satisfied, actually excited about my 33.
I almost renamed this Project 335. Unlike Phase 1, I had some trouble finalizing my list. The two things I let go of, but would have liked to keep, were a warm hat and a red silky sexy camisole.
