A couple of weeks back I watched a documentary on Netflix called ‘Minimalism: A documentary about the important things’ and decided to take part in the ‘Project 333‘ movement.
Basically, having more with less is the aim of the exercise. It’s about having 33 items in total that you LOVE and you only wear these 33 items for 3 months. After 3 months you can dive into your stash of clothes and exchange some, or all of the items.
I love to shop at op shops and quirky stores, but find I have a bunch of clothes that I never wear. Sound familiar? I get invited out and think ‘oh no, I have NOTHING to wear.’
So, I went through my wardrobe on a warm, Sunday afternoon and sent a bunch of stuff to solitary confinement for three months. It was fun! I actually had bought four new items of clothing that day: 2 from the op shop and 2 from a regular fashion store. So obviously they were included in the 33 items!
I did an inventory and crossed out things as I became aware of other, more suitable items.
Here is my list of clothes I chose:
Long, black special occasion dress
Navy Wrap dress
Black dress pants
Polka dot skirt
Pandora Blue Gem statement ring
Gold earrings x2 pair
Black all purpose Jacket
Mustard summer sweatshirt
Navy cropped cardigan
Pink bat-wing sweater
Grey high neck singlet
Mustard long sleeve silk
Red vintage jacket
Green and white bomber jacket
Black and white singlet
Yellow floral top
Black cropped cardi
Mustard v neck pull over
Black wool pull over
I wear a uniform for work so I excluded that, and underwear, socks, loungewear, sportswear and special jewelry (wedding ring, things you never take off) are also excluded. The rules are that you can’t wear loungewear for anything other than lounging around the house, and sportswear can only be worn for fitness/sporting activities.
So that’s my 33 items.
Follow me for the first three months on instagram and let me know how you’re getting on!
