Welcome to the new U.P site! A project about daily change can't stay the same forever, right? Well now is the time for that makeover. We will be rolling out the new U.P website this week, so please bear with the little hiccups while we get there. What you will see is not just a design revamp, but also a categorical reorganization of the past 2 years of U.P adventures. Add to that a much-needed upgrade of our technology framework to accommodate for more flexible content updates, and presto, welcome to U.P's whole new look. You will notice that there are a few things missing, but you will also discover a lot of new features… Get the the full update >

Uniform Project was born in May 2009, when one girl pledged to wear a Little Black Dress for 365 days as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Designed to also be a fundraiser for the education of underprivileged children in India, the project acquired millions of visitors worldwide and raised over $100k for the cause. U.P then continued into Year 2 with a monthly series of select Pilots taking on the 1-Dress challenge for causes of their choice. Today, women around the world continue to take on the 1 Dress challenge and wear U.P LBDs as an expression of socially conscious fashion. Get the Full Story >

Dryad of the Urban Wood

Posted on: January 1st, 1970 by admin No Comments

At this point you’ve been invited into the whimsy & wunderkammerness of my little abode. Brightly painted walls bursting forth w/ tendrils of ivy & philodendrons; Tree ferns, Ficus & palms stretching branches towards the morning sun; a hammock b/t two turn-of-the-century wooden posts; terrariums of exotic insects; and a collection of honeys, teas, bibelots, & collectibles from all corners of the globe.

Welcome everyone to my chimerical paradise of rest, work & relaxation.

I do believe my proclivity for such niceties stems from my deep affection for Nature and have quite the collection from Her ample armoire. Prized finds such as bird’s nest fungus, witch’s butter, wooly bears, iridescent beetles, dead man’s fingers, driftwood, and the ghostly vestiges of Indian pipe float about my bedroom. Perhaps my urban-existence is a bit anemic & will never be able to fulfill my unquenchable thirst for idyllic living –but that’s why I go out to experience life – or shall I say – living – once in a while.

I suppose if my home were embodied into an LBD – it would be this one. This time: a CPALI skirt (STUDYNY) woven w/4,000 wild silkworm cocoons; Christian Siriano bark cloth belt; Oda folklore bolero; Thea Grant reconstructed vintage necklace; Charmone heels; monarchs in the hair.

We have successfully built 1 UP well! Yah! And some of my wardrobe will be auctioned off on I-Ella starting tomorrow.
