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 >

Très chic, très hip, très sexy

I vowed not to curse the weather – but my goodness! What IS it w/ the snow, sleet, hail, rain & lightning all wrapped into one ominous package?

At least I get to play-work around the house today until my afternoon meeting. So here I go again – looking a bit way too fabulous for my idyllic little urban dwelling. But then again, I never minded the dichotomy of this crazy little life I’ve crafted.

I’m actually writing a letter to my grandmother today. I need to let her know that I’m featured in a bunch of magazines this month (She gets a little irked when I keep to myself), but I think she quite enjoys picking them up on the newsstand, which is really sweet. I also have to share the news that I have been using her beautifully crocheted collars & great gram’s vintage scarves since she doesn’t use the Internet. ;-)

I think the LBD looks so elegant but I’ve kept it simple. I love how just a little adjustment makes such a transformational difference. For instance, I kept it as a bubble and stepped one leg through to the front to make it appear like an unconventional slit up the dress. Again, another Carasan collar creation and her cute knit ruffled gloves, (which you can win if you give $100 or more!); glasses from my collection with MODO Eco (coming soon!); Charmone heels; and a lovely pen given to me by my dear friend Damon so I can write, write, write.
