free nylon & dresses

I don't even know how my wonderful boyfriend discovered this, but it's a dress that I would absolutely love to wear. Then again, I don't doubt that I would absolutely destroy it in seconds. Or, like my boyfriend fears, I would get paper cuts all over my body and probably dye it red. This is a dress made by Jolis Paons, completely made out of phone book pages! (Source)
For my Creative Processes class I designed and made this paper dress purely out of phonebook paper! I pleated, stuck, sewed, and glued everything by hand.

And lots of thanks to DreamEcho, I have learnt that Nylon and Urban Outfitters have decided to bring Canadians and Americans another one year of Nylon magazine subscription! For free! How fabulous is this? Sign up soon—while supplies last! (Source)

My boyfriend has advised me that it's all gone. Sorry, loves! If I find goodies, I'll try and remember to share!

If you haven't heard of The Sartorialist, well, listen up. Scott Schuman has spent 15 years in the fashion industry and founded this wonderful blog to showcase fashion across the globe. This blog has been publicized in magazines and newspapers worldwide. The outfits he find on the streets of some of the most influential cities in the world are raw, inspirational, glamourous, and worn by everyday people! Forget fashion models. We should be looking to our neighbours for fashion advice! There are always fabulous outfits, but this one really spoke to me. The pieces really come together despite the mismatched colours. It's something I would totally wear, and, oh, the accessories! (Source)
