This is not a statement.


I could tell you that this is a statement on society's blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

But that would be a lie. I simply thought it would be cool to make a plastic bag dress :)

The concept actually came to me last week when Sam and I passed by Anthropologie and they had this giant bee hive thing in the window covered in plastic bags. It looked very different. So I thought, "hey, I'm going to do that, only better". And what would be better than a plastic bag bee hive? A plastic bag dress of course! So I took all the bags I have saved for shipment padding, and made a dress, covered a hat, purse, necklace, and pair of shoes in bags, so everything but the pink curtain in the window display at work is plastic and frothy.

I also just had to share this nail polish I got last night. So, it's pink and shimmery. You'd think it would be called "Sparkling petal" or something obvious like that. But no. No it is not. It is called "Almond Crunch". As I am wringing this, I just ate an almond. And it looks nothing like this when I crunched into it. So my friends, I ask you to explain this to me. Why is this pink nail polish named "Almond Crunch?". I must know what inspired this.

Cool dress – and I can't help with the almond crunch thing! But it has made me want marzipan. Hmm.

Thats hilarious!!! Dearest Sally, Almonds are brown, not pink and sparkley!!!

Great idea and you executed it so very well.

That is a very pretty shade maybe they have almonds confused with berrys.

You are so creative! I just love how this window display came out... Fantastic!

Hm... I often wonder how they name cosmetics and other beauty supplies. Sometimes the names never seem to fit the color/product! ;) Maybe in the Sally Hansen world, almonds are pink? I think if I ever came across a pink almond, I'd most certainly not eat it! lol.
