Dear gentle blog reader,
Once in awhile, you read the story of someone who’s very talented who takes a wrong turn in life. This may soon be the case with Maura Pozek, a talented high school senior from Missouri. Instead of going to design school next fall, she’s chosen to attend a regular university and possibly major in elementary education. Given her talents, I think she’s better suited for the fashion world.
Just look at the prom dresses she’s designed from Doritos bags, cardboard and paper bags, and pop can tabs!
Here’s more on the story:
Maura Pozek always had an eye for fashion, and she showed off her latest creation at her senior prom.
The Missouri high school student created a cardboard prom dress just in time for her high school dance, KY3-TV reports.
The creation consisted of corrugated cardboard, hot glue, tacky glue, spray paint, brown shopping bags, and, of course, glitter, dad Steve Pozek told The Huffington Post in an email.

But it’s not the first time the 17-year-old has donned a unique gown on the dance floor. In the past, Maura has worn dresses made out of Doritos bags and soda can tabs, KY3-TV notes.
Maura’s handmade dresses weren’t always well-received among school officials, though.
“[The school principal] needed a parent’s reassurance that the [Doritos] dress would be appropriate for prom,” Steve Pozek told HuffPost. “Once he and I came to an agreement, Maura was good to go.”
Despite the minor controversy, the dress was Maura’s favorite for a simple reason.
“I got to eat a lot of Doritos,” she said.
