    For some reason, I really like pieces that are inspired by or made out of actual objects. I'll start off with these earrings made of thermometers... :blush:

    "Wearing a disposable, paper dress was a short-lived fad from about 1966 until 1968. It didn't need washing because you just threw it out after wearing it a few times. The price was $1.25, about the cost of an average meal then. The design was obviously inspired by Andy Warhol's soup-can series."

    Oooh I love those thermometer earrings! :woot: Where'd you find them? They're darling!

    Those Warhold dresses are cute. I love that cut of dress, I have two. And they were made of paper? Thats a neat idea. I think we need to revive that?

    Other ideas I've seen which I haven't found pictures of yet are a dress made of zippers and a skirt made of ties. :woot:

    :eek: I wonder if those paper dresses ripped easily. Or if they melted in the rain.

    I wish I had been around to wear paper underwear, I think this generation really missed out.
