As I walked by one of my favorite local shops on SE Hawthorne Blvd., Presents of Mind, I stopped to window shop--I would have gone inside, but I had made it only a few bites into a cup of Ben and Jerry's yummy ice cream. Upon closer inspection of this dress, I realized it was made entirely of paper! I took several shots, all with the reflection of a vehicle, doggone it. Still and all, I cannot resist showing this creative creation to you. I'm going back soon to take a look at their wrapping paper selection--I like both of the bodice papers enough to hope some remains in stock.

Here's the Info from the store's Web site: Presents of mind is the brain child of Cinnamon Chaser. The store opened on the Historic Hawthorne Blvd. in 1989 with the goal of being a one stop gift store for people who wanted something beyond the big box generic and the teddy bear cutesy. These days the store is run by Cinnamon’s business partner and daughter, Seasons.
Since 1989 we have continued to pursue the latest and greatest, the classic and trendy, and all things cool. We are constantly on the prowl for new and unique items and dedicated to carrying & supporting local and independent designers, and companies that use environmentally friendly products.
Now we have this wonderful website to be able to offer a selection of our great goodies online. We have also secured several local Portland designers to sell on our site making it truly unique and allowing you to get something wonderful you probably won’t find anywhere else. Please enjoy and check back for new additions, as just like our store we are always adding new finds…
