Style Icon: Sheena Matheiken

The Uniform Project
Have you guys ever heard of the Uniform Project? Well let me tell you about it. Last May, fashionista Sheena Matheiken decided to wear the same little black dress (above) every day for exactly one year in an effort to raise money for the Akanksha Foundation, an organization that helps children get schooling in India. Every day she accessorized and layered to make the same exact dress look fresh and brand new. Was she successful? You be the judge-- in one year she managed to raise almost $80,000 and send 220 children to school. Want to know more about Sheena's efforts? Want to see all the outfits she created? Watch this video.

Hats off to you, girl!
