Chic Chix Update

A few months ago, I blogged about up cycling a suit (here) that I had bought for a dollar. I finally got up the nerve to submit it to Stampington who publishes Belle Armoire and Altered Couture in addition to a few others. I am so excited to announce that the suit will be included in the Summer 2012 issue of Altered Couture which will be on the newsstand in May.
Please check out our Etsy site. We have added a few new items and French translation on some.
Ciao for now,
Peggy

Anti Valentine's Day Art Tie

Well, I finally finished my tongue-in-cheek creation. I like to call it my Anti-Valentine's Day Wearable Art Tie .. I know, long name. Try to say it all in one breath. It's over in our Etsy shop here: www.etsy.com/shop/chicchixnchampagne/. Better pix over there too.
We're just pecking along like busy little chix, no time to fly the coop for me, though I would like to hop over the Channel to visit my dear Chloé. She's busy working her arse off at London College of Fashion in case you didn't know already.
A bientôt,
Al

Musings

Is it a blessing or a curse to be the sister of a creative person? Is it exciting and fun to be the experiment or do you dread the holidays and birthdays?  When you get gifts you can't return them. To insult to injury, they then post pictures of you.
Check out what my good natured sister, Robin got from me for Christmas. It was my first try at combining a denim jacket and recycled sweaters.
Feel free to give me your thoughts.
Cheers,
Peggy
