Dress of Books

Interrupting my seemingly daily reviews with a treat I found over at Trashionista. I remember Chachic posting about bookish clutch bags and necklaces, and I’m sure there are bookish t-shirts too…but how about a bookish dress? Moreover, a dress made of books?

It’s cute, right? But I’d have to agree with Trashionista — I’m not sure how wearable this is. I’m pretty sure there’s a cloth lining inside so the paper won’t be destroyed, but I think this would not last long during summer time here in the Philippines, with our humid heat and all. If you could assure me I’ll be in an airconditioned room the entire time I’m wearing this, then maybe it would be wearable.

But it would make as a nice costume for a bookish party, right? :)

  1. Cool dress! Perhaps they should make one using book covers for a pop of color. Graphic novels or picture books would be nice as well. :P

    • Yes, you’re right. Color would be nice. Although I’m not sure how other people would think of using (expensive!) graphic novels for something one will wear only once. ;)

  2. wow

    that is incredible and very funky. would love to see someone walking around in it ;)

  4. I’ve seen a lot of bookish dresses on Tumblr but I think this is the prettiest. I wouldn’t want to wear it though because I wouldn’t want to worry about the pages falling off or getting wet. :P
