In my pre-P333 days, when my wardrobe got boring, I went shopping. I’d buy a new scarf or necklace or a bright shirt to add a little excitement to the mix. I’d wear the new the stuff for a few days and then go back to my usual rotation. If you are familiar with that cycle that happens a few times a year (or more), you might have more clothing in your closet than days of the year.
That, combined with shopping for special occasions and/or the fact that you can’t resist a good sale results in …

- buyer’s remorse
- complete option paralysis
We wouldn’t choose any of those lovelies for our life, but we fully create them every time we buy when we are bored. You may have noticed after seeing what I wear for the past six weeks, that my 33 pieces are not overly exciting and that I am starting to repeat outfits.
