She works hard for the money

Working hard for the kids a la the 1983 classic from Donna. Phil De Monte's original 1979 Donna Summer Tour jacket, stolen from Mari's closet. Handprinted tights donated by Gal Stern from gal-stern.com, vintage belt worn as a neckpiece from Odd Twin and shoes from scary.

The photography is awesome! Love the sharp contrast of the black clothing against the dark yellow background.

It's funny, I can even hear disco music in my head when I look at this picture! It's so cool! Love the belt, love the jacket, love the tights, lurve the shoes! You look like you're ready to go dancing! It's my birthday today (the 27th, here in Oz) and that look is just how I feel! TWO HUNDRED ELEVEN KIDS! You really have worked hard!


after your homage to Rene, it's the sublime to the ridiculous. hilarious! oh and that jacket is in great condition considering it's 31 years old.

I feel love for this project, and I love to love each new look. And I won't TGIF when this remarkable journey comes to an end.

L tagged this AMAZING!!

I never would have thought of that absolutely adorable idea! I love the belt used as a necklace, girl, you rock!

I already feel nostalgic: what am I gonna do now when I arrive at the office in the morning and switch my computer on? This adventure has gone too fast, but I guess that time flies when you enjoy something... And I did indeed LOVE it! :-) Great job, Sheena! I'll keep talking about your project!

Irene tagged this Edgy

It's amazing how you can pull it off so well. I love the tights.

I still have this album...it was called a "record" back then, kids. It spun on a device called a "turntable." Sheena--thank you for your work, your creativity and your endless inspiration. I will miss visiting this site daily (I have not missed a day...ever). Thanks and congratulations! "Toot, toot, Hey, Beep, beep!"

Shebang tagged this Abracadabra!

Amazing imagination. Such an ingeniously simple idea. I've wanted a personal uniform all my life, but one that fits every mood, doesn't look like anybody else's, with style, versatility as well as ease of movement. You've done all that over and over!

@ person who wrote @ Ramon - methinks the poor lad was merely implying - tongue-in-cheek - that he will miss the Project. As will many. Way to go sistah!

Zaza tagged this überamazing

Awesome outfit. Coolest tights I've seen. You're art and an icon. Even though it's been a long year, I'm sad the project is coming to an end!

Jasmine tagged this 80s for 80k!

A belt as a necklace! Wow - only you can pull off this amazingness! It totally works on you - So creative.


years ago... but school NOW !


I do love a good blast to the past. I know you don't take requests (and rightly so) but if you could pull a Victoriana (or, a touch of Regency, that would be interesting to see) one last time that would be great. (...) I am SO going to miss this.
