    Thanks for all the suggestions - I looked at Preciosa, still more than I was hoping to spend resuscitating my dress. Will probably go with Elite Crystals again...

    Hi, Am in the process of cheaply re-vamping a latin dress. Am looking to buy some stones, not swarowski as would blow the budget. I have previously bought from elite crystals which sparkled and looked good but just found a new make: lumie that crystal clover sells. Has anyone tried them...

    ballgown cleaning

    I wanted to say thank you for all the advice and I can report that I successfully cleaned (still smelly though!) a second hand ballroom dress with feather trim on a cold wash in the washing machine. Only lost a few stones. I bought a third hand dress and am currently on a budget and didn't...

    International Championships 2013

    I went to watch last night for the first time in several years. Great evening but it was noticeably 'quieter' than last time. Really enjoyed the amateur/pro latin. Ina/Troels were fab and i also enjoy watching nikita brovko/olga umurova. I didn't pay too much attention to M/J (they looked...

    Foot blister

    I always get blisters with new dance shoes. Try compede blister plasters. They provide cushioning and also help with healing. Compede also make a roll on 'foot chapstick' which helps prevent blisters by providing a layer between foot & shoe. Don't bother with other cheaper versions. They don't...

    Rhinestone Question....

    I have a dress with Korean stones - they are very flat/definitely don't sparkle and in all honesty are really not worth spending money on as they do very little for the dress. I don't know what makes Elite better but they sparkle nicely and as I can't afford Swarowski, they are a great...
