This week on Flickr, Christina asked me "Deep down, do you wish you had more items? Different items? More or less of something?" The answer, really, is yes, and, no. I spent a lot of time putting together my original list. I know my style, and I like to mix and match. I don't necessarily wish for more items, but I sometimes do wish for some different ones.
I miss my jewelry. Most of it is sentimental, and I put the most sentimental (and pragmatic; my watch is a must have) on the list (a necklace Neal gave me when I lived in New Mexico; it was meant to look like a winter sky in the Northeast), and I put a synecdoche bracelet on the list (I usually like to stack 'em, and the one I kept out stands in for all the others). I am glad I didn't put earrings on the list, but now that my hair is almost long enough to put up, I would like to have my favorite silver earrings to wear. I'll be passing on a lot of costume jewelry and sharing nicer pieces I no longer wear with family members.
In embarking on Project 333, I was concerned that I would be unhappy with a limited shoe and purse wardrobe. Again, I selected the shoes carefully for their versatility and considered what I was most likely to be doing during the three months. Not once have I wished for any additional shoes. I will be paring those back dramatically, too. I only put one purse on the list, a black tote that I could use for work. It isn't cutting it. It's a great bag, but I hate carrying it when I'm not at work. It's simply too big. So in the next round, while I plan to purge many of my beautiful bags, I will have a little more variety.

There's something exciting on its way (finally!) to my house...all day I've been stalking the tracking for my Uniform Project L.B.D.! Starting tonight, I'll be playing P333 with 32 items instead of 31!
You can see all of my Project 333 outfits here, and if you'd like to see what fellow P333-er Drew (be sure to hop over to Drew's site. He is doing cool, cool things!) and I have cooked up, check out our weekly photo game here.
Now that I've dished about what I miss, tell me, what piece of jewelry (remember, wedding rings don't count on P333) you could not do without for three months?
Have a fantastic weekend!
