effFriday: effFUNKY effFRESH, The Uniform Project

Remember how we would always complain about wearing a uniform to school back in the day? Well it amazes me when I see someone who actually wants to wear one, and she's not even in school. Sheena Matheiken is doing the unthinkable for a worthy cause.

She will wear the same dress (don’t fret germafreaks she has multiples like Superman) for a full year. The challenge is for the charming fashion imp to rework the same black tunic dress into a different chic ensemble each day with vintage and donated accessories.

Matheiken’s penchant towards uniforms stems from her upbringing in India where peers showed their unique style by pushing the limits of their required school uniforms.

She has already raised over 10K in funds for Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for children living in Indian slums.

You can donate cash to the foundation or accessoires to Sheena’s style cache here. Also follow here style safari on Twitter.
I think that this is cool...what do you think, effFUNKY or effFRESH?
