I’m happy to report that the project is no longer feeling like a project and more like normal. I could get into this minimalist thing.
Although it’s only been two weeks, I can see the shortcomings in my edit for this season; the color palette is very limited and there isn’t enough variety in the shoes. Since this is a trial run, I’m allowing some substitutions so that I can continue through the rest of the summer and forward - Byaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Besides the two tank tops I recently bought, I’m looking for a pair of flat, brown sandals. I’m having a bit of trouble deciding on which ones to get, but these are the top contenders:
Joie ‘Sable‘ – neutral AND shiny, made in Italy, all leather; price is ridiculous
J. Crew ‘Malta‘ – same as the above, but only half leather and half the price
Birkenstock ‘Arizona‘ - because, the internet
Everlane Slingback – naturally…but they’re out of my size…
Woman by Common Projects ‘Minimalist Sandal’ – I know, I know; they’re sold out anyway, let me dream!
I’m not quite sure how this is going to pan out, but I’m keeping an eye open just in case a suitable and reasonable option comes along. If that happens, another item will be rotated out to make room. Forced simplicity is a beautiful thing, man.
It sounded like a couple of folks were looking to get in on Project 333 last week. Any progress? Tell me!
