Still doing these because it’s become habit. Indulge me.
why: I wanted to rotate out a shirt that wasn’t working in my edit of 33 items for the summer. Turns out I liked both and swapped out an additional item to make room for it.
circumstance: snapped one up the night it was put on the site…probably about four hours earlier than I was supposed to. Judge me.
// Fabletics Anyi sports bra & Lima capris
why: I’m officially hooked to spinning (Cycle House, if you’re in LA). I had enough gear for two days a week, but I’m now up to three. I tried to make my old Forever 21 leggings left over from pregnancy work, but yeah..no… Workout gear doesn’t count for Project 333, so I felt like I was in the clear.
circumstance: nothing noteworthy. Like last time, I got separates instead of an outfit. It’s more expensive per item, but lower in overall cost.
// Adidas Orchid Firebird track jacket
why: saw the rose version on a coworker and couldn’t get it out of my head. Yes, it’s the one from this post.
circumstance: I got it at work and two other coworkers were egging me on. I was powerless. Everyone recognized the enabling happening, but somehow, someway…I ended up getting the jacket. I may rotate this into the current edit since I have a leather jacket in there and I have no idea how the hell that happened, because I LIVE IN LOS ANGELES AND IT’S SUMMER, WTF ALICIA?
SOLD / CULLED
Nasty Gal slip mini dress & slip maxi dress
Who knew this was going to happen when I bought them back in November??
*entire studio audience raises hands*
GREAT! They’re gone. Now let us never speak of them again.
Also gone? That open back Zara top along with a black Coach wristlet. Both have found their new home in D’s home. Enjoy boo!
Project 333 has done more to keep me from mindlessly buying clothing than anything else I’ve tried. Any potential purchase is now carefully considered since I have to give up something to bring a new thing in. I have a spreadsheet going and everything. Limits and accountability work wonders, man. Not just one, but both in tandem.
