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 >

We finished the first day of shooting that I was telling you about yesterday. My body is unaccustomed to being submerged beneath the water for three hours and when I emerged, my skin felt gummy and rubber-like. The hot shower last night felt more than amazing and the filleted lemon branzino – more than delicious.

We’ll continue on today and then schedule one last day for some key components of – what I suppose – is becoming a PSA for the Environment. Then, a marathon editing session so that the finishing touches will be completed by May, just in time to unveil the final product to the Aspen Environment Forum and perhaps even a potent visual homage to World Environment Day on June 5th.

If I have time, I’ll give my good friend Wade a call back, as he is helping me plan for an April trip to Peru to meet some textile weavers and artisans for Source4Style.

I decided to take a sensually subtle approach to my LBD and slide it beneath the most beautifully embroidered 1940s dress, worn backwards (Traven7). The reminiscent touch of the sweetheart neckline remains, but enshrouded beneath an organdy fog. It can easily be worn with or without the finely tailored organic cotton-wool bolero by Anja Hynynen; vintage-inspired Loreto wedge by Lela Rose for Payless; and a handmade silk belt purchased at the old Studio 5-in-1, which I had frequented quite regularly back in its heyday.
