Blogger Susan Stephenson '02 is wearing the same dress every day for 30 days in January, changing the style of that one dress each day with various accessories, as a "charitable publicity stunt."
The dress was donated by L.L. Bean Signature, and all of the accessories are donated from local companies, fashion students, and artists, whose work Stephenson will showcase, blogging and vlogging about the project throughout the month. Stephenson's aim is to help women in the difficult economy to look their best as they enter or re-enter the work force, and she will donate all of the featured fashion to Dress for Success Southern Maine, a Portland non-profit that helps women get back into the workplace.
