Little White Dress Project: A Reflection on Accessorizing and Reuse in Fashion

day eleven

It has been almost two months since I did The Little White Dress Project. Whenever I recount the project I do so with a smile because it was one of the most dynamic, most wonderful challenges.


One of the things I loved most about the Project was that it forced me to think outside the box. Though challenging at first, wearing one dress for over three weeks showed me how easy it is to make such sustainable changes in my life. Just because something isn’t new doesn’t mean it’s old. There’s a new, diverse way to wear everything in my wardrobe. Whether it be a summer white dress over a turtleneck and leggings for winter or cuffed jeans and a cropped sweater for summer, fashion is truly my canvas, and The Little White Dress Project taught me to take each outfit as I would a piece of art, adding and subtracting were necessary, but keeping in mind that how I dress is a reflection of who I am!


Each day a wore the dress I blogged about my outfit and little antidotes of my day. You can see all my outfits on my Little White Dress Project page!
