This Girl Made A Trash Bag Prom Dress For ‘When Someone Calls You Trashy’, And The Result Will Blow You Away

Amber Scholl has become an internet phenomenon thanks to her creative and inspiring DIY fashion videos, paired with an upbeat, infectious personality. This particular video was prompted by a comment that Amber says she gets all the time: “Amber could wear a trash bag and still look bomb.”

And so she set out to prove it. Taking her viewers through the process step-by-step, from the shops to buy supplies to the actual creation of the dress, Amber manages to shock even herself with just how fabulously it came out. “Honestly I think that this is the best DIY I’ve ever done,” she chuckles to herself whilst sashying in front of the mirror in her trashy creation.

The video has already been viewed almost a million times, and Amber has uploaded it to Twitter, along with the witty caption: “When someone calls you trashy, make a dress out of trash bags and prove them fabulously correct.”

So there you go. You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to get a stunning gown, you just need a few trash bags and a lot of creativity! Scroll down below to see how the new “Queen of DIY” put it all together, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Sorry, but the dress wasn’t made out of trash bags at all. It was embellished with trash bags.

The opposite of trashy is classy. That dress isn't classy so I would say she proved them right.
