Blogging with a conscience

I struggle with my conscience quite a lot.  I'm not sure if it is being a mum to small children or the current economic/political climate or both!  I have spoken about this previously, it just seems futile to blog about clothing and consuming when so many people are struggling.  I have put off writing about so many products because the price tag is quite frankly vulgar, especially for childrenswear, therefore, I have been trying to bring you economical/recycling projects that make new of something old.  It's not exactly a revolution, but it is a start in the right direction!

So this weekend is Glastonbury (A huge music festival here in Glastonbury, England) and with it comes its own fashion style.....generally a nod to the bohemian.  I had a dress I no longer wore, so I made a playsuit out of it for Fleur.  I basically crossed the front, took a bit out of the back, crossed over the straps and created a pair of shorts out of the skirt....teamed it up with beads, wellies, a headband and hey presto!  Festival Chic!

What do you think?  How do you feel?  Do you sometimes think you should use your creativity for a more worthwhile cause?  I'd love to hear from you.
