Upcycling with glamour

Seems like upcycling has finally reached Hollywood. Livia Firth (also known as the lovely lady married to Mr. Colin Firth-Darcy) has volunteered to bring the green into the red carpet. Maybe it's not such a big deal, but I have to admit wearing a couture wedding dress as a ballgown for The Golden Globe takes some serious guts and style. Her blog's worth a visit. Personally, I find the Uniform Project a lot more down to earth and realistic. Would you be able to wear the same dress for 365 days? Sheena Matheiken is bloody good at it.

On another note, I haven't been updating lately owing to hundreds of things going on in my life. Part of it is the up and running of my Etsy store and Miss Cristal website, and another project that really hasn't got much to do with design or jewellery but is lots of fun anyway. I must admit I'm pretty burnt out with publishing, and while I still dedicate most of my time to it, dealing with egotistic authors, printing cataclysms and general chaos and mayhem is becoming more and more burdensome, especially since everyone has decided that recession is a great excuse to NOT pay for your services. There are also a few personal and family issues to be solved before I can get back to being my usual fashion-and-architecture-obsessed self.

Be back soon!
