The Uniform Project

I think I might be the last person in the world to have discovered this great blog. Thanks to Sophie for alerting me to its presence!

For the 3 of you who don't already know about it, it's a fundraiser for an Indian educational organisation, where a girl wears one dress (with different vintage accessories) for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. It's a great idea, and she has a whole heap of different looks from the one dress. Obviously, not every outfit works, but here are some good ones:

What bothers me about the idea is this: she has 7 different copies of the same dress, one for every day of the week; why can't she just have 7 different dresses? She also has a gazillion pairs of tights and shoes, so I doubt her wardrobe is actually any more sustainable than mine... but it's a fun idea anyway!
