Love the bangles with the tank. And the shoes look like they were made to go with that tank! I too think the black lace footies are a neat touch, tying in the color scheme nicely from head to toe. Very chic!

che tagged this inspiring

Sheena - please tell us how you are feeling about the project. Are you feeling like you want to wear something different? Is it getting easier or harder as the days go on? Do you have lots of combinations prepared in advance or do you take it day by day? Checking your outift out has become a my daily routine for me, so thank you for the daily surprises. It has inspired me to think out my outfits more creatively.

Britwatch tagged this a la JosePrakash

@che: I think she decides in the morning, what to wear for the day. I would like know her answers to ur other questions too! Hey Uniformproject, why topical- is it warm in NYC?

Molly tagged this Cute

I am 52 and you inspire me. But I can't wear short skirts. I wonder if you would think about accessorizing this as if you were a rounder 50-something for a few days? Also I liked your tribute to Canada on July 1 and USA on July 4. In this vein I want you to know that Women's Suffrage Day is August 26. That is the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920.

cass tagged this Hot

this outfit makes me want to swap cold melbourne for sunny nyc!

priya tagged this Hot

love the look sheena!

Julie tagged this not my cup of tea

love the shoes


@che – I don't really plan ahead, mostly take it one day at a time. Tthanks to all the donations that are flowing in, there is plenty room for spontaneity. The dress is slowly becoming part of my skin and I still love it. @britwatch, yup hot and humid in NY.


Hmm - Love the shoes and the print, but the top itself doesn't work for me.

Katharine Tapley tagged this Nice

It's a nice look, but I fear I have come to expect a lot more from you. Ridiculous of me, since you're doing all of this with ONE dress!

fauxsleep tagged this topicaljealousy

pinry tagged this Cute

inspiring project and great styling here! love the layering of the footwear - would never have thought of that!


@che – I don't really plan ahead, mostly take it one day at a time. Tthanks to all the donations that are flowing in, there is plenty room for spontaneity. Don't mean to be rude but this makes it sound like you're using donation money to buy clothes and accessories. That's not the case, is it?


Sorry, messily formatted comment. The first half (upto spontaneity) is a quote from sheena, replying to che. Rest is me. Cheers..

Britwatch tagged this Mugambo Khush Hua

Hey Vir, I reckon she means the bits and hand-me-downs that people give her - NOT donated money, that'd be seeeelly, you're right. And wow, fauxsleep REALLY wants to get out Melbourne eh!

lily tagged this perfection

gorgeous! i LOVE the whole look. we've not seen anything like this previously. well done!


seriously Tapori-chic! i like!


@vir – I strictly meant the donated accessories. All cash donations go to Akanksha's school fund for the education of underprivileged kids in India.

growch tagged this Cute

I think a pair of maracas would make this complete. The world needs more maracas.

brandy tagged this Cute

Georgia tagged this Schlick!

Very nice. Simple. Smart.

tara tagged this Cute

adorable! how do you remember where everything came from!?


Color coordination is fantastic. Just little peekaboos here and there. Even the footies at the right touch. The dress designer is beyond!
