I’m really excited to be sharing this outfit post today because I’m wearing the item that’s been in my wardrobe the longest. This white dress is a vintage gym uniform (I’m guessing it’s from the 60s based on the tag) and I picked it up at a Goodwill for a few dollars when I was 16…which was 14 years ago! My friends from high school probably remember it well — I wore it all the time, mostly with a bunch of Red Cross buttons affixed to the pocket and paired with striped tights.

One of my constant style inspirations has always been uniforms. Perhaps part of the appeal of creating a uniform-based look is the fantasy of not having to think about what to wear every morning and instead refocusing that time and energy on other creative endeavors. I’ve noticed that a lot of fashion designers and artists seem to have a daily uniform, probably because it gives them a clean slate to focus solely on their new designs.
