Project333 Wardrobe – my choices for the next 3 months

One Empty Shelf’s first ever Project333 wardrobe…

So, after a few hours of filling bin bags ( I actually had more clothes than I thought!) my Project333 wardrobe is finally ready. I’m looking forward to it a lot, even though I’m only 2 days in, I feel that my attitude to what I’m wearing has changed – no more standing in front of a wardrobe full of various dubious items, despairing that nothing matches or fits any more!project333 wardrobe 3







My 2 drawers had never looked so empty. It’s a wonderful feeling!
So, this is a list of what I’ve chosen for the next 3 months! We’re changing from a so-far mild winter to colder weather, then looking ahead to spring, so I wanted a mix of jumpers and warm clothes along with versatile tops and outdoors-y clothing.

Tops & dresses:
4 x vest tops; olive, striped, black, white
2 x t-shirts; grey, black
1 x fancy top for going out
1 x maroon jumper
1 x blanket/poncho
1 x lacy cardigan
1 x jersey dress

2 x skirts; blue, black
1 x pair of leggings
1 x blue jeansIMG_20160112_133408

1 x knee high heeled boots; brown
1 x studded heeled shoes; brown
1 x ballet flats; white
1 x muddy walking shoes; grey and mud coloured 😉

1 x brown handbag
1 x green cross body bucket bag
1 x scarf; cream and pink
1 x beanie hat; mint green
1 x sunglasses
1 x belt

Jewellery:project333 wardrobe 4
2 x necklaces
2 x stud earrings (might swap one pair for some dangly ones – it was a hard decision!)
1 x green material brooch

1 x black leather jacket
1 x blue weatherproof outdoors-y jacket

I’ve also got some loungewear not counted in with the total, along with a few work clothes (scruffy trainers and 2 hoodies- I work in a warehouse which is pretty dirty and involves a lot of manual lifting, so don’t wear ‘nice’ clothes!), underwear and a workout outfit.
Not including those exceptions, I think my total is 31 items, so a little room to add in something (the work clothes maybe?) if I need it. So around about 33.

I’ll update with how I get on every now and again!

Thanks to Courtney Carver for her #Project333 idea!

  1. Good luck! It’ll be interesting to see how you get on with it. Have you just packed all your other stuff away? Is there anything you think you’ll have to get out if it gets any colder? M

    1. Thanks Michelle! Yep I’ve just packed the rest of my clothes, shoes and jewellery away! I’m going to see how I get on this first 3 months, and after I’ve chosen my stuff for the next round (summer, yey) I’ll maybe edit whats in the bags!
      I might have to pull out a fleece or two depending on the snow situation in the next few weeks! 😀
      How’s the no-spending going? We’re trying to cut down on food spending too so am very inspired by you!

  2. Looking forward to your update! I love capsule wardrobes and yours looks great. It is such a calming feeling to open the wardrobe and see so much space and simplicity.

  3. I came across Project 333 pretty near the beginning and it reminded me that I’ve always been fascinated by capsule wardrobes…since I was about 10, really. I’d been decluttering my wardrobe pretty thoroughly anyway, trying to get away from the “shoulds” and got completely obsessed by it all online ;o
    In the end, I never actually did it. My wardrobe decreased all the time and I kept on getting rid of the stuff I simply didn’t wear or use or which didn’t fit. Eventually, I went totally gung-ho and did the 6 item challenge for 6 weeks. To my surprise, it was easy. So I did it again a year later. Simple. (And it was a good cause!)
    It really made clear to me that what is a “must” or ‘classic’ for others rarely is for me, my age, size or lifestyle. I found I don’t need more than one pair of casual jeans (coloured or grey, in my case) because I hardly ever wear them. I found I love brightly coloured tunics and dresses with tights/leggings a lot more, and I layer them or add a cardigan/boots when it gets colder. Works for me. Took a while, but now I am very pleased with my relatively small wardrobe and even though I still occasionally buy something new, I’m ruthless if it doesn’t work IRL!! Good luck, anyway – I will be very interested to see how you go.
    (Another thoughtful capsuler is Jennifer Scott at The Daily Connoisseur or have a look at the Vivienne Files for colour inspiration!)
