Will you journey with me?Posted: July 23, 2011
One of the things that I’m hoping for with Project 36/365 is to have a community to do this experiment with me. I’m starting this project six weeks ahead of time so that you’ll know that you’re not late to the party. There’s time to get ready. One of my problems with Project 333 was that I kept on shopping. At thrift stores, but none-the-less, I kept gaining articles of clothing. I need accountability. If I know you’re looking over my shoulder, I’m way less likely to make those thrift store purchases. I want help in finding that comfy pair of black boots to take me from October through May. I want to support you as you try to figure out what items still need to go from your wardrobe. I’ll probably need help in paring mine down, too. In other words, I want to struggle through the next six weeks or so together as we ramp up to live on less clothing over the next year. Come September 1, I want to just enjoy it. Together with you. I want to reflect on what it’s like not to purchase. I want to reflect on what clothing means and why I’ve spent so much time thinking about it. If Kristy Powell is wearing one dress for a year, I can surely get by with 36 items. I want my clothing to fade into the background as I spend my creativity on my business and my family, and I want to feel great in my clothing while I’m at it. Want to come along?
