Days 29 - 35, I took a break from the Little Red Dress while vacationing in New York. When I got back home and found it waiting, it was a reunion of sorts. I can't say I was thrilled to see her. I sort of begrudgingly pulled the dress over my head; but once I put it back on, it felt right.

Getting back in this Little Red Dress routine calmed me. It gave me fewer decisions and helped put my days back in order. The dress has given me the gift of simplicity. I understand now how owning fewer things can lighten the stress load. Does that mean I want to live in one dress for always? No. I thought at this point I might be willing to do such a thing, but my growth isn't there yet. I'm counting down the days until Sunday.

Lesson five: The gift of simplicity comes through having less stuff.

  1. What a great lesson, that simplicity lessens stress. We face so many choices every time we walk out the door, and I find that often when there's too much choice, I end up not making any, stymied by the possibilities. I love simplicity.

  2. That is a great lesson, and one that I've been trying to get into my head. Even if it doesn't mean using one dress only, it could mean we get rid of a lot of unnecessary excess. Kudos to you for embarking on this journey, and thank you for sharing it. You may not be aware, but your posts have helped others (me at least) share in your lessons as well.

  3. I like this lesson! It's so true. Sometimes I have materialistic moments and forget.

    Are you going to keep the dress when you're finished?

  4. you are awesome
    love what you are learning form this experience
    thank you for sharing those lessons with us

    love and light

  5. Jamie, I've had moments where I thought I'd be happy to toss it in the giveaway pile at the end of the experiment. But I'm feeling connected to it now, so I'll probably hold on to it.

  6. wtg looks like you fun with your photos :)

    almost there :)

  7. I love all your little red dress combos! They are ALL cute. I have worn the same jeans for two weeks now. ha ha! But that's because they are newish and I like them so much better than my old ones.

    Good job with your experiment!
