The Uniform Project: One Year, One Dress

994a1b9d-94d4-40e1-b97f-ca9d33fd2a70_June_24_v3_D

Sheena Matheiken has vowed to wear just one dress for an entire year.  An “exercise in sustainable fashion,” Matheiken has created The Uniform Project to prove that one can be fashionable and inventive without being wasteful. She will actually have  6 dresses, but they’re all the same uniform, which she will change up with “accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies.”

This experiment is also a fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots organization that aims to bring education to children in the slums of India.

Check out The Uniform Project website to donate money and accessories.

Dang, these A.P.C. Sparta Sandals are expensive, but I’m truly in love. Such a great alternative to the ubiquitous gladiator–it’s a heartbreaker, alright.

Gaga for Sebago’s Dockside Shoe

dockside22

I’m kind of going GAGA over the Sebago‘s Dockside Shoe. For the 40th anniversary they’ve teamed up with Colette and LA MJC for a 3-series shoe. I’m very partial to the Colette version, but i’d take all of them. The shoes are super-limited to only 40 pairs for each shoe. The Colette version is dipped into paint by Jack Spade, and each pair is unique.

The shoes can only be purchased from Colette.

It’s  suede, which makes it kind of cold-weathery, but then it’s bright blue, which is kind of summery.  The result?  Perfect transitional shoe.   I like the simple rounded point, and the visual interest of the cut out.  Very nice, and on sale at JCrew for $69.99.

While I’m a little wary of Drew Barrymore doing an affected east coast accent, I have to admit I’m pretty excited for HBO’s new Grey Gardens movie.  If you’ve ever seen the original documentary (poster above) then you know how fascinating Edie Bouvier Beale, the eccentric hermit cousin of Jackie O, truly was.

This film mainly focuses on the life of Edie before the documentary that catapulted her and her mother to cult status.  Can’t wait.

It premieres Saturday, April 18.  See the trailer below.

I stumbled upon this collection of exclusive garments produced for Opening Ceremony by New York- based Pegleg on Hyperbeast. Even though I’m not the hugest fan of color,  I instantly fell in love with these bold designs, which are definitely made to stand out. The 3-color blocked T-shirts are available at Opening Ceremony’s online store.
