Minimalist series= Courtney Carver
I am not sure how I came across this lovely lady. I instantly loved the concept of 333. This is a method of dressing that Courtney Carver has gained much publicity about. It is capsule dressing at its finest. Thirty Three items of clothing worn for three months. It excludes some articles of clothing like underwear, but basically it everything you wear for three months is pared down to thirty three items.
For most of my life, I have dressed pretty much this way, except I have never counted every item. I mostly have a core wardrobe that I wear for six months. I add accessories to it that assures the items remain fashionable. Since discover project 333 though, I have been challenged to going a little further in whittling down my wardrobe. I only wear what I REALLY love. I have gotten rid of everything that I did not truly like or that was not becoming.
This summer I had plans of buying many new tops to wear throughout the summer. I actually decided to keep what I had that I really enjoyed and get rid of the rest and see if I could make it throughout the whole summer. I did! I found out, as have so many others, most people are not looking at the individual pieces that you wear every day. They look at whether you look nice or not. As so many others have noted, people comment on how you look well dressed every day. It is nice, especially since it takes ten minutes to find clothes and get dressed every day.
Thanks to Courtney Carver and www.bemorewithless.com , I am exploring more ways to become freer in my time and thinking through my wardrobe. If you are looking for ways to embrace minimalism, this could be a good place for you to start. Check it out and let me know what you think.
