Day 300. Wed, February 24 2010

300 down, 65 to go.

Today, the countdown to the big finale of my 1 year in 1 dress begins. So far we’ve seen pixies, elves, pirates, ravers, evil sprites, skipping-school girls and intergalactic mermaids all in the same black dress. Spread the U.P's message of making style sustainable and help us raise more funds for the kids of Akanksha. Share & Retweet today!

300 days already. I already donated but I am going to donate again, today, right now. Why dont we all. Even if it is just a bit, it all adds up.

I am always interested in reading posts; your outfits can be quite divisive amongst your followers. I applaud your inventiveness, doesn't matter to me if I think it's wearable for me!

carissa tagged this Hot

moon tagged this Hot

i would imagine the queen of hearts wearing this outfit during her days in school. because every queen knows it's important to go to school!

fleur tagged this hearts

zorro, congrats on 300 days! I am dutifully following along here in chilly Stockholm, and I've donated a lump sum to the donation bin if only to see you continue to wear those puffy pants from day 298. Alladin would be proud. Just kidding.

freya

Wendie

It was you on Lafayette this morning! I was walking to the subway, passed you walking with a friend and thought hmmm, it must be the girl behind the Uniform Project. I pop into your site once in awhile to be amazed by your creativity and style. It's always inspiring.

Tiks tagged this Mesmerizing

Soooooooo proud of you... Just wanna remind u about what a wonderful inspiration you ve been to others who are also counting days to complete "journeys" (tough yet important phases) in their own respective lives, in different ways.... Thank you U.P..

TREgirls tagged this warmth amidst the snow

wow 65 days!! T says all of the accessories (especially the head scarf) remind me of my papa's red bow tie and while he looks like a 80's nerd in it you look like quirky fun loving gal it made me smile!!

pimientaconcerezas tagged this Cute

So why don't we all dig out our favorite staple, black dress today, creatively re-inventing it with accessoires we already have at home. Then, let's take a picture in a fabulous Sheena pose of ourselves and paste the UP logo and maybe a little credo for donating money into it. Let's post it to our social network sites and e-mail it to friends and family. Maybe they will find it easier to spare a few bucks for the kids when they see how inspired we are by this project! (I'm not graphically gifted and only have Paint!, so excuse the layout, but it could look something like this: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/XoydnNiDhxLOznWSFHmBLA?feat=directlink)

Congratulations on the 300 days! I can't wait to see the last 65 looks, but at the same time I'm sad that the end is coming... Sheena, you are truly amazing and inspired on your incredible project I'm starting one myself: 365 days without shopping any clothes. I'm starting next monday, March 1st, and I'm really excited about it. The only exception for my project would be the purchase of the Little Black Dress, the most beautiful and versatile I've ever seen, as you prove everyday! Can't wait to have one like this here in Brazil!!!

rosalafae tagged this Hot

This is one of your best outifts - the belt and the shirt and the cuffs and the collar and the bowtie and of course that awesome headpiece. AWESOME.

Wow girl, look at all the overflowing hearts and exploding pride...it's strong enough to move mountains...and maybe we should! @pimientaconcerezas - love your idea! Maybe we should pick a future date - so that fans like me in Aus (who're already on Friday morning) don't miss out! Let's pick a date! Big love to the UPers this morning!

Annabelle tagged this Cute

Subtle and very cute!! just a touch of colour but how it stands out!!

Nana Soma tagged this Blown my mind

OMG!!! Definetly the best look i have ever seen from you! It took me directly to my childhood using these colors and a quite similar outfit which i had used in my 5 years old birthday at primary school. Such good memories... and a great look!

Very nice! I love the color-combination :D
