MY VERY FIRST EXPERIMENT WITH PROJECT 333 (or any capsule wardrobe)

Yep. After a long thinking and planning, here it is: my first capsule wardrobe for fall 2015 using Project 333.

Project 333 Capsule wardrobe: fashion minimalist challenge that invites you to dress yourself with 33 items or less for a period of 3 months.


  • When: Every three months (It’s never too late to start so join in anytime!)
  • What: 33 items including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear and shoes.
  • What not: these items are not counted as part of the 33 items – wedding ring or another sentimental piece of jewelry that you never take off, underwear, sleep wear, in-home lounge wear,  and workout clothing (you can only wear your workout clothing to workout)
  • How: Choose your 33 items, box up the remainder of your fashion statement, seal it with tape and put it out of sight.
  • What else: consider that you are creating a wardrobe that you can live, work and play in for three months. Remember that this is not a project in suffering. If your clothes don’t fit or are in poor condition, replace them.

I want to live with less, simplify my life and make it easier. And having 30 items in my closet for the next 3 months will definitely help.

Here’s what I chose:

1. black-grey striped t-shirt – thrifted

2. grey Harvard t-shirt – Harvard store (gift)

I have never been a shopaholic, these items were purchased/collected during these last few years or months. I want to become a more conscious and sustainable shopper, trying not to encourage the sick fast fashion system. Here are my thoughts about this topic:

It’s not about suffering for not being able to have things, but it’a about learning to simplify your life and to love and take care more of what you have.
