Have you heard of this? It is a project in creating a minimalist wardrobe, especially since most women only wear 20-30% of their wardrobe. Personally I can attest to the HUGE amount of dresser space that is being used up by clothes that don’t fit right, are stained by baby puke, or just don’t look good on me. I keep hoping that my post-baby body will fit into those pre-baby/marriage jeans and midriff bearing top… yeeeeah, so not going to happen without the aid of a scalpel and a lot of duct-tape.
Here is the jist of the project:
- When: 3 months
- 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 other 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 site.
- 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.
Doesn’t that sound scary and wonderful all at the same time? I would love to open my drawers and know that anything I touch is going to look good on my and be my favorite though so I am more than willing to give it a try. I am also thinking I am going to do this for AJ as well as that girl has a ton of clothes that she doesn’t wear because their not her faves.
This project has been going on since January but it is never too late to start minimalizing so I am going to start now and go from there!
