DIY Festival Fashion with

Here’s the thing: I’ve been asked to take part in a fab DIY festival project from

Basically, the boohoo team has sent me the simple (and sexy!) black “Sandy” maxi dress above, along with some make-and-do bits and bobs to customise said dress and get it festival-ready.

Once it’s done, I’m tasked with showing y’all what I’ve created in a special post (that will also feature info on how you win festival tickets – yay!)

Now, I could sit here in my office being all serious and “stylist” about the mission ahead…OR I could rope in  my mates when they come over tomorrow for a pre-house move swish (that’s a fashion swap, in case you’re not familiar with the term) and have a really good time doing it.

My plan is, get the girls to help me customise the dress – after all, festivals are all about the shared experience, having fun with your nearest and dearest and generally having a hedonistic, helluva time of it. So what could be better than having a festival dress that was created by those very people you want to share the festival experience with?

Check back Saturday to see the results and find out how you can be in with a chance of winning this fest-perfect prize…

Find out what happens when these babies meet my mates and end up adorning a long black dress….
