Photo Reflection of the Day #166: Shelling Out for the Dress

Shelling Out for the Dress 20150829_113533

What Is It

A dress made out of seashells and other natural elements.  

Why It's Today's Pick

While visiting the Peabody Essex Museum, I stumbled upon this outfit.  It's probably not my fit and not exactly my style, but it is pretty dang cool.  I recommend clicking through to the Flickr page so you can better see the detail. It's made entirely of seashells, snail shells, and the like.  I can only imagine the time, effort, and attention it took to craft this thing.  It's part of why I like the museum so much is that it is often filled with such curious and fascinating exhibits.  I find something new every time I go--and that's just with their regular exhibits, nevermind their specials.
