It’s the 20th already? Holy chocolate-coated Buddha on a stick…
So Far, So Good…
Our heroine has her color scheme all sorted:
And she has all of her clothing (except for 1 piece – that’s the bonus #33 item!) chosen, too:
At a minimum, I’m thinking that this heroine needs 3 pairs of shoes, a couple of bags, and some jewelry. Maybe a scarf or two…
The best way I’ve found to make sure that you have what you need – packing, or planning a Project 333 Wardrobe – is to work your way through a number of outfits and think about what you want to wear with the clothing.
She can’t easily resist gold loafers, and a matching handbag…
A backpack is always handy – many of us have started carrying an empty one to the grocery store…
She won’t be wearing scarves every day, but having a REALLY pretty one will come in handy when she has to dress up a touch:
A statement necklace can be easier than a scarf for some of us…
Our heroine is really enjoying pearls these days…
Okay, that’s 14 accessories! She’s got room in her Project 333 Wardrobe for THREE more things…
This will be great with ivory pants…
These are her 14 accessories for the period of her Project 333:
And this is her 333!
Yes, she still has two “slots” to fill for her wardrobe. I’m giving her some wiggle room, in case she realizes that she forgot something important. This is how I would approach Project 333!
I think Project 333 is one of those undertakings – like wearing a dress for 100 days, or a wool tee for 30 days – that helps you see how truly little you really need to be well and comfortably dressed.
The tee shirt project is calling to me…
p.s. Seven years ago, we started with an Hermes scarf, and assembled a black, white and bright colors wardrobe!
Well that came together beautifully! The two scarves are perfect. She’ll look good whatever she needs to do.
Beautiful and fun! Have a great weekend everyone!
A perfect accessory that I am going to use for this appeared in several posts around May 11, 2022. I think that the “El Amore” Silk Bandana (Tropical Red and Blue) By Lost Pattern NYC is a great match. This capsule did come together for me very easily with all of the pieces plus the yellow jade accessories. More Jade accessories, please. 💫💖✨
I love the balance of variation and coordination in this wardrobe. I also enjoy a good challenge! So much more fun to play within a structure than in a void in my opinion.
Thank you again for all of your amazing work.
Looking out the window at the fat flurries coming out of the gray Illinois sky–and then to turn on the computer and see the bright, happy colors of this wardrobe–a little jolt of happiness! And the scarf featuring ears of corn made me smile.
Just checked. Wolf&Badger still has the “El Amore” (Red and Blue) Bandana by Lost Pattern NYC in stock. Janet may be able to receive credit for this, if we are given a new link to it. What do you think?
Click any link that takes you to Wolf & Badger, and I will get the credit! Thanks for thinking of me…

Has anyone pointed out yet that this is a Weekly Timeless Wardrobe, plus a few extras? Love it, thank you!
As someone that now lives exclusively in tee shirts, I am excited about the “tee shirt project.” Can hardly wait to read what that is all about.
I’m thinking it’s like the dress project only with a tshirt?
EXACTLY. I just need to decide when I’m going to start, and how long I will go with the shirt. It’s a wool long-sleeved tee from Wool&, and it’s lovely…

Really loved how this came together. Not for me but fantastic inspiration from the painting! Janice, you make MWF fun even if I sometimes don’t get to them until Sunday!

The Turmeric Top is just plain fun! Love it!
Just curious why the 4X4 featuring two tops and two bottoms actually has three tops and one bottom. I didn’t see the original post.
Love the accessories today. I own a bright yellow purse, and all of these colors. Time to combine.
No good reason – the templates are guidelines and not strict rules! Sometimes I find that things look better to me if I change things up a little bit…
I don’t think I’m a good candidate for a project 333. This time of year is my favorite because I love cuddly sweaters and I want to wear them ALL before it gets warm again. I’m a knitter and a lover of beautiful fibers (love Eileen Fisher) so I can’t force myself into minimalism right now. Maybe in the summer!
That turmeric blouse is divine!

I think this looks GREAT even though I detest that gold color (a color that looks terrible on me that was my high school marching band uniform, so I have negative associations; I’m sure it’s actually a very nice color without the negative associations!).
This is amazing! And I love that there are three different colors of pants. I think that gives a lot of variety and you once again gave us jeans! Thanks Janice!!
Lovely!! I tried to save to one of my Pinterest boards and I get a message the the link is broken. Same when I tried to before you made this a Project 333 post. I have a screenshot – help!
Can you send on the screen shot to [email protected]? I will have technical types look into it!
Love your post!
KC from Germany. Close to the france boarder;-]
Thanks – and welcome!
FYI – “boarder” is someone who lives with another person and pays rent – they usually get meals, as in the phrase “room and board.”
“Border” is the edge of a country, or any other edge!
Hope you don’t mind; I always REALLY want someone to help me with my French…
This is such a beautiful balanced example of a great project 333. The scarves go in 2 very different directions blue and gold plus beige tans with oranges while coordinating with the whole capsule. Variety in the jewelry, shoes, scarves and handbags. It puts to rest the common fear that a 33 item capsule might be too neutral or monotonous.
