Want to Dress with Less?

Apr 08

I’ve written many times about Project 333‘s impact on my life. Here’s a recap:

  • I always feel stylish and put together. The clothes in my closet are in good repair, fit perfectly, and suit my style.
  • I save time. I don’t waffle about what to wear every day, and it doesn’t take long to maintain a small wardrobe.
  • I save money. I rarely purchase new clothes now where once I shopped as a hobby. When I do identify an item I’d like, I spend time considering how it will fit in my wardrobe, why I want it, and then I purchase a high-quality garment that I can wear for years.
  • I learned a lot about myself and my values.

A little later this year (mid-June), I will embark on a new minimalist fashion project: 52/52. I will narrow my year-round wardrobe to 52 items, which I will wear for the entire year. Linda is taking on the challenge, too.

If you’d like to join me and Linda, or start Project 333 (you can start any time; there’s no reason to wait), but you’re feeling a little anxious about cutting down the wardrobe, I recommend you start with Courtney Carver’s excellent Micro-Course Dress with Less: Click here to view more details.* The course is a week-long, and it includes pdf worksheets, playlists to inspire you (Courtney’s a real Mix Master), and access to a private FaceBook group, where you’ll find lots of people ready to cheer for you and answer questions.

And if you have any questions about paring down your wardrobe, well, I’m here for you. I’d love to chat with you about your clothing list-sometimes it helps to hear that you really can get by with one pair of black pants!

Are you intrigued? What’s holding you back?

    Well, I know just what we will be doing when you come to visit me in May!!

  2. My first response is, um, really? 33 items of clothing including shoes and jewelry? Awk! But I do know I have way too many items of clothing in my closet (ask my husband, whose clothes don’t fit in there anymore) so, hmmm….

    • You’ll be amazed at how happy a streamlined wardrobe will make you! I did struggle with handbags and shoes, I confess!

      • I’m paring down my wardrobe and mustering up the nerve to jump in! I think having 52 clothing items wouldn’t be as difficult as narrowing down the shoes & handbags. I may go ahead & start and just “exempt” those in the beginning.

    Are you posting the list of 52 anywhere? Or I’m I too nosey? 🙂

  4. So proud of you for sticking with it!

  5. I really like this 52/52! I have pared down my wardrobe, and I generally wear the same clothes year round. This would make me choose the best and favorites and simplify my life a little more…Great idea! 🙂
