on November 28th I updated you guys on my Project 333 ... as you know after several hesitation I joined it last November... and I thought I had given it a good thought and that my 33 items would remain all the 3 months... However, I realise that I am still changing. I know we are always changing but the changes I am going thru are "forcing" me to adapt my wardrobe furthermore. So on November 28th I had made correction to my initial list... and I still had to make more corrections... (last edits are in red)
Here's my list:
2 black pants - one straight, one flare
1 red Cotton skinny pants
1 black skirt
1 black dress with mustard flowy sleeves
2 sleeveless top (grey, mustard)
3 fancy t-shirts (beige, red, grey/navy/mustard)
1 electric blue short sleeve blouse
4 long sleeve t-shirt (2 beige, 1 black, 1 gray)
1 black long sleeve fancy top
1 green long sleeve fancy top
1 pink and purple blouse
2 cardigans (grey, mustard)
1 electric blue turtleneck
1 LBD - a must very simple and very me!!!
1 purple dress (with fuchsia and grey imprints)
1 navy dress (with mustard yellow and beige polka dots)
1 velvet burgundy skirt - b-day gift from husband - more flowy then previous burgundy skirt
1 old pink fancy t-shirt
so basically I am now up to 29 items... and this is WAY more then enough! I have a great rotation of items....
I also want to add that I had initially decided to leave out the outside clothing because I thought that living in the north country that would already be too many items... and I had also left out accessories... If I was to include these I would be way above 33 items... but I have downsized those too. Look at what I gave or put away because I am not ready to give or depart from:
One winter coat - gave away - tired of seeing it - it has been 8 years!!!
2 pair of not warm enough boots for someone taking the bus - replaces by Sorel boots
Some jewelry that was hand me down form my mom but that I never wear were carefully put away in nice tissue bags and I will see with time what I do with them - at least I am not cluttering my jewelry box anymore
One corduroy hat that was great with my long hair but not so much with short hair
I also have to take a look at my socks, underwear and scarves, mits and hats... this I might do during my Holiday break.
So as you can see this is a "live" project... I never seem to be done with it... I am glad I am below the 33 items and happy with it... I also thought that I would do 3 months (just as an experiment) and that would be it but I think I will stay with the idea of this project... I will most likely keep my initial rules... but that's OK! It's a reminder not to get my closet cluttered again! And honestly it would not be difficult because I love clothes... but I can still love them but be wiser about it! I love candies too but do I buy and eat all of them???
love and peace,
