Jennifer Lawrence v/s Household Items

The internet is a buzz with people taking selfies of themselves recreating Jennifer Lawrence’s 2014 Golden Globes Dior dress.  The linens are literally flying off of beds across the world.  This is actually a very exciting expression of our ability to rethink what we already own. Before we start wrapping our friends (and our pets) up to look like toilet paper rolls, here are some examples of how to wear household items..and keep your dignity intact.
