I think it's cute. (:

Eleanor tagged this Right on target!

Love the bullet bolo! My husband and I both shoot for fun, so I can't wait to show it to him. I am "addicted" to your site!

eldub tagged this Brave

Very creative.

Beth tagged this Try Harder

This outfit is okay. Maybe if the vest were a color other than tan.

How fun! Luv every piece today. Well done! Funds are on the rise. Keep spreading the word people - $ raised benefit the Akanksha Foundation


Very nice, but maybe you can find something RED for tomorrow? The colors have been quite consistent for a while -- is it time to punch up the colors a bit?


barbara, count on a splash of color tomorrow! :)

We love a girl in uniform! I got started in 1979 with a school-bus yellow boiler suit, and never really quit. Dress it up, dress it down, there are no limits. Moved on to a black boiler suit in the '80's - nice with a simple strand of pearls, but not a great choice for an evening out drinking. (One will drop a sleeve in the toilet at some point.) I'm a costume designer, preferring to costume others and stick to the uniform myself, which, I am ashamed to admit, is a black T-shirt or a black T-shirt, I collect vintage silk scarves, rhinestones and african necklaces. Maybe I'll pass some along. Good Work! Cheers! Martha

No hats.

You make me want to wear un chapeau!


I really respect your intention to raise this money... I just don't really get how this can be called "1 dress, 365 days". You really aren't wearing the same thing everyday. Isn't it kind of missing the point?

Carol tagged this Cute

I love the dress. I work for a company where we wear black everyday it would be wonderful to have a dress like this so I could just change the accessories and go on my merry way...and I too do not like to carry a purse. You might consider selling the pattern to help with donations. Have a great day.

Big day at Wimbledon uniformproject! Andy just won a tight 5 setter under lights on centre court. He says the site's an inspiration!

canadian cheryl tagged this Cute

just found out about the project, and think it's just the coolest idea. And a terrific cause. It's remarkable how accessories can change the simplest outfit to show your individual personality and style....

Choley tagged this Inspiring

This site just makes me shop, but at least I'm supporting the etsyverse. Now I bought a bullet bolo tie.

Niamh tagged this Try Harder

Seems similar to yesterday's with the hat and the shape of the shoe. You should try something similar to Day 4.


JK, appreciate the question. The creative challenge I have given myself is to accessorize the same dress differently everyday to make it a one of a kind piece, and to do so in the most sustainable way through the use of pre-owned, re-purposed, vintage and donated items. This is an attempt to prove that style and sustainability needn't be mutually exclusive. You can read more about the project and the cause under the About section above.

All you need is a bow-whip, a pistol, and some mosquito netting and your ready for a wild adventure...


Oh wait, the bow-whip is around your neck...


Colour shinnajoy, colour! You're palette needs an upgrade.

Edith tagged this Brave

Really cute and very creative ... we don't have to be slaves to the dictates of the merchants and the fashion gurus who are payed by the merchants ... we need to be individuals and unafraid to recycle reuse and refuse to be a fickle waster of the worlds resources and energy.


hmm. some pop missing, I think.

Avarine tagged this Cute

It's simple, but polished. I like how the vest and shoes kinda match. You're dressed lightly.. must be warm in your part of the world?


I read about your site in Canada's Globe and Mail Newspaper. It seemed like such a great idea. But as I scroll through your 60 days, you seem to have a lot of clothing. I thought the idea was to have less. Hmm
