Minimalist fashion challenge Project 333 began October 1, 2010. I created my first capsule wardrobe with 33 items and hundreds joined in to try it too. All of these years later, I still dress with 33 items or less every 3 months and now, tens of thousands of people from around the world have tried it too.
I was worried about announcing the challenge publicly years ago because I thought …
- I won’t have enough clothes
- I’ll miss shopping
- People will notice I’m wearing the same clothes
- I’ll get bored
None of those things happened, but lots of other less scary, wonderful things happened which leads me to the big secret.
The challenge isn’t that challenging.
The hardest part about Project 333 happens before the challenge starts, when you are thinking, “that’s crazy” or “I could never do it.” Once you get started, it’s so much easier than you think, and it makes other parts of your life easier too.
If you are just getting started, or coming back for another round, share your images on Instagram with hashtag #project333 so I can round ’em up and inspire people with your tiny wardrobes.
