Uniform Project's Designer Eliza Starbuck Makes LBDs for the Masses




    When the Uniform Project's Sheena Matheiken needed to wear one dress for a year, she turned to her friend Eliza Starbuck for the most perfectly versatile LBD. Now Starbuck is making that dress is available to the public.

    The dress will hit LES boutique Maryam Nassir Zadeh with a little soiree tonight, and will also be available on DailyCandy through Starbuck's website -- under her new label, Bright Young Things. The site even features several girls sitting around wearing the dress, styled in the kind of varied and creative ways that got us so addicted to The Uniform Project's daily ensemble dispatch.

    Sheena Matheiken of The Uniform Project took us to two of her favorite boutiques in Williamsburg, where we shopped for outfit-altering accessories. (Published Friday, June 4, 2010)

    The dress retails for $185, and best of all, it comes with a slew of ready-made styling suggestions courtesy of Ms. Sheena Matheiken and her website, so we'd suggest you snap it up while it lasts. (The first limited-edition run of the dress sold out mighty quick, we hear).

    Bright Young Things is available at Maryam Nassir Zadeh, 123 Norfolk Street.
