Tag! You're it!

Every so often you see one of those dresses made from something crazy (vegetables, pop tabs, AmEx gold cards), and they look good on the mannequin or in the fashion show, but they are more costume than real life. Then you see something like this, where an Aussie fashion designer turned an inside joke with her boyfriend into a wedding dress. 

In case you can't tell from the pix, the dress is made of bread tags. Not sure what those are? When you buy a loaf of bread from the grocery story, it's often secured with a little plastic tab that has the best-by date printed on it. Stephanie Watson and her boyfriend saved these each week. As their collection grew, they joked that when there were enough to cover a wedding dress, they would get married. Friends and family helped out, and 10,000 tags later, they couple was married, and the bride wore this. 

I think she looks radiant, and talented, and I love the sense of humor here. Best wishes!
