This is my fourth year of dressing with 33 items or less, and each season, I let go of what isn’t working, what’s worn out, and what I don’t wear to make room for what does. It didn’t happen overnight, but I’ve slowly crafted seasonal capsule collections that work extremely well for my lifestyle and workstyle.
In the image above, clothing for my other capsule collections is in the small container on the floor, and my 19 articles of clothing are hanging up. The small blue containers above the hangers include, from left to right:
- workout clothing (does not count in the 33)
- underwear (does not count in the 33)
- sleep wear (does not count in the 33)
This season there was an extra challenge, #33in33 inviting you to create 33 looks in 33 days. I created a 30 second video with my 33 looks. If you want to see them, click here. They were also posted daily on Instagram. This mini-challenge helped people see the versatility available in a tiny wardrobe.
I’m not the only one who thinks dressing with less is good for you. Read The Science Of Simplicity: Why Successful People Wear The Same Thing Every Day.
The following images show all of my items except for 4 pair of shoes (heels, boots, flats, walking). This collection has seen a variety of weather conditions; from sunny 85 degree days to a chilly 25 degrees, with another month of cold temps on the way.
I love that Project 333 gives me permission to wear my favorite things every day.
If you’ve been thinking about giving Project 333 a try, but worry about limiting your wardrobe to only 33 pieces, remember that this is only an experiment. It’s 3 months of dressing with less to help you learn what you really like and need, to help you define enough, and to surprise you with many other benefits.
