So, my first 3 months of #Project333 is coming to an end. I started on 10th of January 2016, and since then I don’t think I’ve fretted about what to wear one single time! As someone who’d regularly throw open the doors of her closet and wail ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’, staring in frustration at the mis-matched, differently sized contents within, Project 333 has been an absolute lifesaver.
The idea is the brainchild of Courtney Carver of Be More With Less and involves creating a capsule wardrobe of 33 items, which you wear for 3 months. After 3 months you swap items and continue as long as you want!
So, here comes my Project 333 review for the first 3 months…
The best bit about Project 333:
The absolute ease of having an outfit for every single day. Not having to make a decision is the single most important part of the project for me. No stress, no fuss, no deliberations! I absolutely loved this aspect. Choosing your favourite clothes to wear means you feel better a lot of the time, too.
The worst bit about Project 333:
It’s quite hard to think of a bad thing… Seriously. Project 333 has changed my clothing life! If I was pushed, I’d say in hindsight I would have included more jewellery as I’m used to wearing a myriad of huge dangly earrings and I missed them!
What item of clothing did I wear the most?
I ended up wearing jeans most days, but found myself wearing a skirt and leggings much more often than usual, as I fancied a change.
Was there anything I didn’t wear?
Yes – I didn’t wear any heeled shoes at all, and only used my green handbag once. Next time around there’s two items I can swap out for more earrings!
Did I swap any items out for other things?
Yes- at the beginning of the project I decided to swap my heeled boots for some comfier Ugg boots. Due to illness, my weight had ballooned in a very short amount of time and in the space of just a couple of weeks, the boots no longer fit around my calves. Now I’m getting better the weight is coming off again so hopefully I’ll be able to get in them once more! For the same reason, I expanded out of one pair of jeans, but I didn’t replace them, I found I had enough with my other pair and my leggings.
What am I planning for the next 3 months?
I’m planning to go more neutral with the capsule, I’m planning to have a few black t-shirts which will match multiple items, and thinking of the coming summer! I’m looking forward to keeping a skirt or two in there, which is something I wouldn’t normally wear but found I really enjoyed! And more jewellery of course!
Would I recommend Project 333?
Absolutely. I takes all of the stress out of deciding what to wear, and since you feel great in all of the outfits you have, your confidence takes a boost as well!
