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.

These Bubinga sunglasses are on sale at Green with Glamour. At $210 (originally $350), they’re not exactly cheap, but they are made of eco-sustainable wood, and you don’t see that everyday. They also come in a re-claimed leather case.
