Britt Savage is at it again.
You may remember reading about Savage last April
, when she made an entire dress out of IRS tax forms. "I mostly used the beautifully pink Child and Dependent Care 1040A forms plus some paler pink Individual tax forms," she says on her website. Savage, a singer-songwriter who fronts the band Britt Savage & Twang Deluxe, wore that dress at one of her "Mod Night" showcases, then auctioned it off on eBay for $306. It was bought by "a tax prep dude from MA," she writes in an email. The dress became such an Internet sensation that it will be included in the upcoming edition of Ripley's Believe It or Not!
In keeping with her seasonal theme, Savage has now made a dress entirely out of Christmas gift wrapping--the top is woven wrapping paper, the skirt is shredded ribbons. She wore the dress last night for her set at The Billy Block Show at 12th & Porter, and is now auctioning it off on eBay
As with her last auction, all proceeds are going to her favorite charity, Heifer International
, an organization fighting hunger in 57 countries including the U.S. If someone you know is a size 6, it's the perfect gift...and it's already wrapped! But hurry, because the auction ends at 11:38 a.m. tomorrow.
