be more with less




Courtney Carver, the creator of project 333, graciously asked me to write a little bit about my experience.  I did and today she posted it here.  If you are even a little bit intrigued by the idea of project 333, then pop over and see just how you can be more with less.
I'm starting to put together my spring/summer list of 33 and hope to share it with you soon.

meanwhile, tgif

  1. Can't wait to read that post. I just finished my 3 months, but it's too early to think about changing my wardrobe to warmer-weather clothes, so for now I'm sticking with my same 33 items. I really haven't found it hard, but then again, I haven't been much of a clothes horse since my college days. The only time I even thought about it was when I went to the Oscar party, which was formal, but I borrowed something for that, so that doesn't count, right? Looking forward to seeing what you pick for your next 33 items! Karin

  5. and now on the project 333: the only downside I noticed are the co-workers who comment on the "same clothes" I have been wearing recently. When working in a surrounding where co-workers invest a lot of time, $$$ and thoughts on their wardrobe, you stick out when wearing the same items over and over. It is ok. But I don't particuallary enjoy the fact that they notice. They make me feel weird. Especially when they comment. Shouldn't it be the other way round: that those who dress rich in variety stick out? I wonder if others also feel uncomfortable with this project when surrounded by fashionistas at work. They can make you feel like a weirdo, even though the clothes are impeccable.

  6. You among others have been an encouragement to me to keep streamlining my own wardrobe. I am not down to 28 items (not including accessories, jewelry, exercise clothes) in my Fall/Winter/Early Spring wardrobe. I love the freedom it gives me and license to get creative. I will be working on my Late Spring/Summer wardrobe soon. xx Bliss

  7. I think this is so interesting. I have been wanting to clean out my closet and this could give me a way to focus on it.

  10. Adorable! You look absolutely adorable. Perfectly put together. And...
    As always, you have the greatest, most interesting blog. I am definitely inspired to streamline the closet yet once again. Hopefully this summer I will do major cleaning out, thanks to YOU!
    And...YES. T. G. I. F. That's a BIG T. G. I. F.

  11. Hey there....
    You're looking phenominal, as usual. :)

    I've started but I'm not down to 33 yet. I should be since I basically where the same outfit day after day. It seems like this would be so much easier in the summer - think I'll skip right into the spring/summer outfits. I'm determined though.

    So, is that a humongous geranium?

  14. I've read on your blog about this - but with today's post I jumped in. Summer is ending here in New Zealand - so I pulled out everything in wardrobe & draws & planned for autumn. Will start in a few weeks when officially autumn - as probably will not need summer clothes then.
    My husband is going to join me.

    Thanks for inspiration!

    Love Leanne

  15. Janet,

    First, you look beautiful. Happy. And inviting.

    Second, when I moved out of my loft/studio/gallery and in with Susan a few years ago, I let go of so much--clothes, books, etc; stuff that I was not using and stuff that was simply taking up space.

    Letting go was a spiritual awakening, so-to-speak.

  16. Janet,

    you look beautiful here and on Courtney's blog. You know you have me so inspired and I am going to get on board. When you take this on it not only makes you think about your wardrobe in a more simplistic way, but everything around you. It really just makes a lot of sense...to me anyway. Not my daughter, but that's okay.

  18. looking good!

    i see what looks like wicker furniture in the background - do you leave it out during the so Cal rainy season? i'm wondering what the best option for outdoor furniture is - whatever we get doesn't make it through all the rain very well.

    am going to check out your guest post.
