She Wore the Same Dress for 356 Day

An article on AOL's front page caught my eye this morning. It was about how this woman who wore the same black tunic dress 365 days.
"For the last 365 days, Sheena Matheiken has taken away the guesswork from
at least one of those queries. For one year, the New Yorker by way of India
pledged to wear the same little black dress -- Every. Single. Day -- as part of The Uniform Project, her way of combining fashion, sustainability, and philanthropy.

It's served as a way to raise awareness of The Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots nonprofit that brings education to children living in Indian slums. So far, Matheiken's efforts have raised nearly $77,000 -- enough to send over 200 kids to school." (
I find this pretty impressive. You have to be really creative to think of 365 different ways to wear a black tunic dress. She did an amazing job changing it up. In some of them you can't even tell its the same black tuni dress! Very very impressive! Kudos to Sheena for being creative and doing this for a great cause!
