This past week marked not only Week 6 of Project 333, but also the two-year anniversary of Coco Chanel's arrival. She is one funny little puppy (even at two, she's still the puppy to me).
And here is my status update in the form of confession. I have worn my rain boots to campus two times (I change into P333 shoes as soon as I get inside...but there are some deep waters on campus when it rains!), and I wore an old rain jacket to work this week. It was torrential out there, people, and I could not face a soaked jean jacket. What does this tell me? That a good transitional coat is necessary. I'm thinking that I should admit that Tim Gunn knows of what he speaks and start the search for a fabulous trench.
Another confession: I wear a little clip in my bang sometimes. I'm growing the fringe out, and there are days I just can not take it flopping in my face. I suppose I ought to call it an accessory, but I'm not going to.
One more confession: I tried on those khakis in order to pin them so I could hem them and finally wear them. To my delight (I've been working hard at this), they were too big*. Into the "out" pile they went, and I replaced them with a pair in my "fighting weight" size.
I'm excited that my L.B.D. is slated to arrive by mid-November (although there have been a few delays, I have faith that I'll be able to wear it for Thanksgiving). I'm also working hard on a sweater (I left a space on the list for one hand-knit sweater) that I want to wear on Thanksgiving. Both will re-charge my wardrobe!
I'm getting closer and closer to understanding what I want and need to make a simple, fun and elegant wardrobe that will keep my closet as empty as it is now while giving me lots of good-fitting options. Can you tell I'm crazy for Project 333?

Thanks for stopping by and reading about my clothes!
*this is a post for another day, when I decide whether or not it is polite to discuss my weight and fitness issues.
