Home decor trends and fashion trends typically run parallel to one another so why not go green (and scratchy) and start donning that burlap! After all, you have heard the expression, “she could make a bulap sack look good,” right? Well, now is your chance to try. Burlap fashions are popping up all over the place. Courtesy of google images (googling “burlap clothes”) I found the following for you.
And let’s not forget our original burlap sack ladies.
And of course Marilyn Monroe has never made burlap look better. Gorgeous.
Okay, and now it is my turn. Wait a minute. Am I insane? I’m not going after Marilyn for goodness sakes! Hang on. Okay, one more pic for you before my burlap sack debut. (And no, I have no idea what this creepy picture is all about. It’s just helping erase your mind of blondie bombshell before you see me.) Anyhow, here’s my tongue-in-cheek attempt at pulling off burlap. For Halloween this year I’m going as a burlap sack diva. I’m guessing it will probably go over as well as my “Eve” attempt. Ah well, it is all part of the fun. If you want to make your own burlap sack dress, take a safety pin and secure a piece of burlap around you. Uh yeah. That’s all I did. Don some accessories and give your best runway pout and quirky body position poses and you have yourself a burlap sack diva costume. Happy Halloween!
