Very nice indeed. I am really enjoying my daily dose of the Uniform Project - thank you Sheena! I bought myself the perfect black dress yesterday, but alas can't afford 7 copies. Happy Sunday.

LOVE the tights and shoes!

Love the clean "Mod" sixties lines of the dress and the matchhing angular faux Sassoon hair that only black-haired women can really pull off


not really feeling the new hair...


Read about you in the NYT this morning. You have inspired me to take a new look at my clothes. You are adorable. Keep up the good work.

Mary tagged this Cute

I just discovered this because of the NY Times piece. This is great. I would love love love if this catches on and we can just have uniforms, for simplicity sake and so I no longer need a closet full of clothes because convention dictates that we must wear a new outfit every day.

Edith tagged this Cute

I love that necklace. You should sell it! I would buy it.

noodle princess tagged this Batty

Meh. I think you had it right on the money but those tights look like they're from some old lady motel room. Sorry...If you 86'd the tights, I'd have given it a Cute!

Omega tagged this Cute

i love the tights and shoes combo... also the necklace is adorable! i'm gonna get right on replicating my own one ;)

nini tagged this wonderful!

So charming! I love your site - being Malayali in origin and fascinated by sustainable fashion, your project is a joy to behold. Keep it up!

RogueTess tagged this Cute

I adore those tights! Great accessories concept, too.

julie Garner tagged this Cute

I love this project. Just read about you today in NYT. I didn't see a mention in there about one of the great "uniform wearers" of all times-Ray Eames, the great designer. She wore the same black dress every day too.

carley tagged this Cute

Ok, ok, I've got to know: How many pairs of shoes do you own??

Cynthia tagged this Cute

oh yes, so love - quite sublime.

Tracey tagged this Cute

You are amazing! A girl with lots of style but even better heart! Will pass this on to all my high school classes and get everyone to watch! Well done!

very interesting

roman clemence anna tagged this Cute

i really like this idea!! i am a young french fashion designer and i would love to donate something to wear with the dress.. how can i do that? i live in hoboken NJ, so i can maybe come someplace?? thanks a lot!! here is my email roman_clemenceanna@yahoo.fr


Please --where can we buy the dress -- a slightly longer version for work? Selling this dress would make a lot of money for your cause. And of course, a book and calendar could follow. I love the concept! Great haircut!

the dress is cute, the leggings are wallpapery, the shoes are hot

jarsika tagged this Cute

omg OMG!! I saw that line of tights in California, but just couldn't buy them. I SO want them badly. Possible the COOLEST tights EVER!

Julie tagged this Inspiring

Ooohhhh, love Elle's idea. I, too, would be quite interested in purchasing a just-above-the-knee version of this dress. You've inspired us all -- we know how versatile this piece is and we'd love to find an excuse to add to our wardrobes and contribute to your fundraising efforts simultaneously!

ines tagged this Cute

great project! hope you tell us soon how you feel wearing the same dress...and what you do with the accessories after wearing them once ...how many such dresses do you have by now..and do you long for a pair of jeans sometimes?

Carmen tagged this Cute

all I can say is "WOW".

Nina from NL tagged this Brave

I love your idea to raise money this way! Keep up the good work!

Maistar tagged this Cute

How adorable is that necklace?! It's too cute.



hannah tagged this delightful.

Ah, this is beautiful. you know, i really would love to get my hands on one of these dresses and i'm sure i'm not the only one!

Jennifer Rose tagged this lovely

Haircut fits the uniform perfectly. (I may be biased - I have a similar pixie cut myself.) I've donated via the web site but I'm going to echo the thousands saying "sell the dress," or at least a pattern. But if I were you, I may not want legions of fans wearing MY uniform around...I'm eagerly awaiting the blog of how it was made, so people can get inspired to take their own "perfect" pieces and adapt them. We are not all shaped the same, after all!

Love the stockings; reminds me of 6th grade!

Naomi tagged this Boring

The dress,shoes,and tights are all very pretty together but i dislike the necklace. Overall the outfit does not scream "SPICED UP"

Joannef tagged this Cute

Chanel-esque. Sweet and cutting edge. AH, AUDREY HEPBURN!!! YES!!

hhh tagged this Cute

this is beyond adorable. the shoes and tights together look great!

Alexa tagged this Cute

Hee, Chonchords reference. The necklace is sweet sweet sweet. Just found out about the Project through NYT, hopped online and spent the past 20 or 30 minutes going through the photo archives so far. Smashing, and more than a little inspiring! Will be following with interest from this point on.

dinky tagged this too cute for words

I adore the accessories

Tracy tagged this Cute

Great look! Love the floral stockings.

Katharine Tapley tagged this Try Harder

I like the jewelry with the dress, and the shoes. I like the tights by themselves, but I'm not enthused about them all together. I think a solid color, textured stocking would work well.


forget the necklace and wear some earings.


love the stokings and shoes not the necklace

A Follower tagged this Like a China Doll!

I'm not a huge fan of the leggings, but the outfit as a whole is lovely. :)

awer tagged this Try Harder

i think u should have used silver necklaces to match the stockings better... other than that, quaintly interesting

Aricia tagged this Cute

ohhhh!!! cute necklace.....


Hello, I found your inniciative great but I when i saw the daily picture i was a bit disappointed because I saw that you were wearing other pieces of clothes to enhance its look and not only accessories as the proposed idea. Why is that? In some of the pictures it looks like the dress is the accessory even...:(

Amy tagged this Unique and Different

love ur tights with those shoes!!!! cute necklace 2!


Love the necklace. It really makes the whole outfit so much better than it already is :D
