Call it a slightly different sort fashion risk. Sheena Matheiken is a woman on a mission. With the help of clothing designer Eliza Starbuck, Matheiken is wearing a single dress every day for the next year. (Check out what she wore on day 47, above) The endeavor is called “The Uniform Project” and it’s “an exercise in sustainable fashion.” There are seven identical dresses, one for each day of the week.
