Uniform Project July dailies. Click on a thumbnail for larger image.
Several blogs have featured the Uniform Project and most lately the NY Times magazine had an article about the venture. The concept is an "exercise in sustainable fashion". A versatile, same style dress will be worn 365 days varying the look with creative accessories. The project is also a fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation which is a movement for change in education in India. Monies raised will go to buying school uniforms and living expenses for kids living in the slums.

I love checking out the creative use of accessories for a myriad of looks. I think about people watching on the Paris Metro and observing the French women who wear classic clothes and the most beautiful and innovative accessories. The secret to a wonderful wardrobe my not be what is on the hangers but imaginative accessorizing.
