Dress to impress

on July 10, 2012

There are times when a normal dress just won’t cut it. When you want to stand out from the crowd and need an outfit that tells a story. Or, in the case of these frocks, an outfit that yells LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME.

Take this dress, recently featured on Design Taxi. It’s made out of 50,000 gummy bears and apparently takes the strength of three adults to move it. By the looks of her, that model wouldn’t be much help with moving the gown – in fact, she should probably sneak a few rows of bears from around the hem line.

Or perhaps this bread suit from Lux Fashion Style would be just the ticket to make a strong impression in your workplace. As long as your workplace isn’t somewhere with a lot of hungry birds flying around. And please exercise caution if you sit very close to someone who is gluten intolerant. Or on the Atkins diet.

Speaking of carbs, here’s a pretty delicious frock featured on the Delish site – it’s made of spaghetti, set off with a dazzling necklace of meatballs. Perfect for a dinner party or night out on the town.

And not to forget the boys – here’s another outfit featured on Lux Fashion Style. The top looks as though someone threw a compost bin on the poor model, but the waffle pants are fashion gold. Practicality doesn’t matter a jot when you look this good.

You can check out the gummy bear dress on Design Taxi here. And the Lux Fashion Style post is here. And the edible outfits from Delish are here. EverydaySparks takes no responsibility for any accidents or incidents or broken relationships caused by you getting inspired and creating your own culinary couture. I’m planning a three-course outfit: a layered lasagne dress with a little bruschetta jacket, accessorised with some tiramisu shoes. What about you?

    I’d like to see a huge Gummy Bear wearing a dress made entirely out of tiny models.

    I like the bread outlfit although it looks un peau pain-ful (do you see what I did there?) to me.

      I like your thinking, Ed, and your clever pun de Francaise. When I find that giant gummy bear photo shoot, I promise you will see it here! :-)

  2. Sparks – I reckon you should forward this post to Lady Gaga and her team of stylists. There is so much useful information here for her… I favour the spaghetti dress, myself

    • Cate says:

      Yep, I agree TSL. Although I think we can all incorporate a little cuisine couture into our wardrobes – a strand of spaghetti here, a croissant necklace there… :-)

  3. I love the Gummi Bear Dress – Very Sweet ( sorry bad pun)….. I cannot help thinking that the designer of the banana skin and waffles was maybe a little last minute…. looks a little bit thrown together for me, but hey What do I know! -)

    • Cate says:

      I’m with you, BCD – he’s a bit of an afterthought I think. Perhaps the waffles were meant for a grander design and then they needed to make a top from the garbage… :-)

Enough about me, what do YOU think?
