It's not the most noticeable when you are an outfit repeater, but when it happens one hundred days consecutively, people mght notice.


Julia Mooney, of the greater Philadelphia area, began a campaign where she would wear the same outfit for 100 days straight, washing only "as needed."

Why? Because Mooney, 34, wanted to prove you are NOT what you wear.



Ms. Mooney initially didn't let onto her students what was going on, but eventually they figured it out.

"I was a little bit fed up with the cultural expectation to go shopping and spend all this money for other people to approve of me," Mooney said to Good Morning America in November, at the beginning of her mission. "There is no rule that says I cannot wear the same thing every day if I choose to, so I thought, why not."




But why bring the same outfit to school every day? Well, Mooney says that this particular concern affects 12 and 13 year olds especially.

"As they try to define themselves, they are often identifying with brands or superficial things like their social media presence. Many seemed excited to have a reason to talk about how silly all of that really is."



Mooney has turned her crusade into a life-long one.

The original grey dress and scarf, she has now reportedly cut in two to make two new dresses:





She also wore her PJs to school in an attempt to be both sustainable and presentable:



And her crusade is drawing positive attention from around the nation:








Ms. Mooney is a mother of three children and eight chickens and resides with her husband just outside of Philadelphia in South Jersey.


In addition to making a psychological statement, not using so much water and/or fabric is also environmentally friendly--something we could all certainly learn from.

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
