The Uniform Project

I stumbled upon this cool project -

The Idea

Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade's boudoir.

I wonder if I could do this? You would have to be so creative. Could you?

Nicole's Threads

We discovered a new jewelry maker in town, her name is Nicole Carey. She has just moved to Vermont and her jewelry is great! She makes the cutest button bobby pins and button earrings. She also makes stoneware earrings, and porcelain and stoneware rings. She makes her own porcelain and most of her pieces are one of a kind. Come and check it out at Trinket!
