Dress to impress

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?

Who cares, bears?

Care Bears first appeared when I was little and, although I never had one (don’t feel bad, I had my beloved Cabbage Patch Kid – Vita Lillian), they seemed to represent all that was good and sweet in the world. With names like Tenderheart Bear, Funshine Bear and Love-a-lot Bear, they were a wholesome bunch. And, like all good things from the olden days, the Care Bears are back. Along with Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony, those recycling marketeers have decided that the kiddies of today would benefit from some old school playtime.

But in case you find them a bit too sugary, here are the Don’t Care Bears – a bad ass collective from the clever folk at Threadless. You can get them on a t-shirt or a hoodie, perfect for when you and your gang are cruising around your ‘hood like BMX bandits. For these and more unique designs (you can even submit your own designs), check out Threadless Tees.
