So here is the itemised blog post featuring (almost) all of my final pieces for Project 333.
I have written them all down so hopefully, you can get a better idea of what a 33 -piece capsule wardrobe looks like. Y'know what-you actually get more to work with than you think!
A few pieces I haven't photographed because I wear them but they need replacing soon. They're fine for working from home and going for walks (aka my life right now) but ideally, I would like to find 'new' secondhand versions that have a lot more life left in them.

All items marked with a * were bought secondhand :)
So that is my rough version for January/February and March, I still need to tweak a few bits but I think that a capsule wardrobe will never really be 'finished' I think it's an interesting process that will grow and evolve over time. So I have 39 items right now but like I say some will probably get swapped around. Plus I should probably skim down my roll neck and coat habit :')
Also, I'd like to talk about the cost of a secondhand capsule wardrobe. Some of these pieces I've had for ages and I still wear them all the time. For me, it's not about going out and buying the perfect capsule wardrobe for the sake of it. It's a longer process. It takes time to find the right garments secondhand but I will say that you should enjoy the process. I'm so happy that I have a wardrobe of clothes that I love, that literally cost me less than £50 for all of the secondhand pieces combined. If you are a serial high-street shopper than that probably seems shocking! I just want to share with everyone that secondhand does NOT mean low-quality, fast-fashion cast-offs or grannies clothes. I like to think that my wardrobe has some classic pieces and that it reflects my personal style.
I think that's enough for this post but please share with me your thoughts on Project 333, if you're taking part yourself let me know how it's going :)
