Here's a dress that could save you from drowning -- maybe
The chic-est life raft ever!

No word yet on when and where this dress can be bought — or whether it will even be put into production! But it's definitely the chic-est life raft I've ever seen!
If the raft-dress came to market and wasn't crazy expensive, would you consider buying it? What would you use it for? I can see so many uses for it. On top of its life-saving potential, it would be really great for camping trips by a lake, a lazy afternoon on the river, or, if it were made of tougher, sportier material, a great whitewater-rafting adventure! OK, I'm kind of kidding. What do you think? Tell us in the comments.
