Capsule Combinations

My first foray into the world of Project 333 was in autumn 2015.   I felt quite anxious about attempting it but thought I’d give it a go. I selected clothes for my workwear capsule and then some for my casual wear capsule. So 2 capsules, each of 33 pieces. 66 pieces felt quite limited (!)…

Autumn capsule: curating

  I’ve transitioned from my summer to my autumn capsule. It feels great – like I have a whole, new wardrobe! It’s one of the things I love about Project 333. While the number is limited, it’s not restrictive and each capsule lasts for only three months – not long enough to get tired of…

Autumn capsule: preparation

  There’s a chill in the air, a diminishing of leaves on the trees and my summer clothes are beginning to feel inadequate – autumn is coming! Personally, I love autumn – or fall for my US readers :-). I like the excuse to snuggle into warmer clothes, dust off my boots and start lighting…

I don’t have many of these events.  My normal social life is well-catered for from my…

Why these pieces: Neutral colours Lightweight materials Classic shapes Easy to style However, I feel this capsule, as a whole, has…

Summer 2017 Capsule Wardrobe

I’m creating a summer capsule wardrobe – anyone like to join me? The days are getting warmer and my clothes need to be more summer appropriate.  Time to ditch the dark colours and woollen jumpers! So, using the framework of Project 333, I’ve decided to create a small, carefully curated wardrobe of summer clothes.  I’ll…

Personal Style & the Capsule Wardrobe

Curating a capsule wardrobe every season has certainly helped me discover my sense of personal style.  My capsule has to cover a formal work environment as well as a more casual style.  While I’ve noticed, over the past few capsules, that I can mix and match pieces quite well, the two styles are quite distinct. …
