This lil bit of news has been floating around the internet this week- and I just couldn't help but want to share it. Marisa Lynch has created a goal for herself: Transform 365 unattractive frocks in 365 days, for $365. I find it simply amazing, and rather impressive to set out for this goal- makes some of mine seem a lil small- but none the less this story shows some massive perseverance and I now can't help but think "I wondered what I could upcycle?"
Marisa was inspired by the movie , Julie & Julia when Julie had found something to do every day that made her feel great. So whallah, New Dress A Day entered the blogosphere. The task: To make a new fashion piece a day — on a budget of a dollar a day — for an entire year.
Here are a few of her upcycled pieces that I think are just fabulous!
Good luck Marisa! I can't wait to see what you come up with next! She will be transforming garments until November 2010 and maybe even possibly beyond?
