Steady As She Goes

Even though I have a closet full of clothes, there are many days when I feel like I have nothing to wear. Like today. I wore a rather basic black turtleneck only because it was tucked deep under a pile of laundry (aka clean) and it hadn't been worn since the winter.

But what if I had to wear the same thing everyday? Yes, I might freak out. Kick and scream. Loose my shit. That's not the case for Sheena Matheiken. Check out her Uniform Project, a daily dose of one woman with one dress for one year. That's right, one year. One dress. Everyday. The project started in May by this brave soul to increase awareness for sustainable fashion while raising some cash money for the Akanksha Foundation – an organization dedicated to providing uniforms and funds to underprivileged school kids living in Indian. It's like Slumdog Millionaire meets Susie Bubble. The project is not only a great cause, but it's a fantastic website for browsing. I love seeing all the ways one dress can look so different from day to day with just the right twist.
