Mannequin Romance








I've been looking for the right girlie to dress up for some time, and she turned up at the flea market over the weekend. I was excited enough to find a vintage dress form in amazing condition, and with a cool looking base, but when I started trying on outfits I got a little giddy! She's a perfect Victorian size.  




I tried the Irish lace first, which made them both look better, and I knew instantly that I am in for a ton of fun! 




So much better than draped on a hanger!



I found a few other sweet dressing room things while I was at it.








This little mirrored medicine cabinet has some fun details.




















My glamour girl came with this sheer beaded flapper dress that is basically in shreds. Makes me think of Miss Haversham of Great Expectations. It gives her an entirely different look.











Check out the bead work.




















So glad you stopped by for some dress up fun!
I can't believe we are turning another leaf on fall already. . .

Thanks so much for coming by.
 I hope you have a little romance in your week!

I love your new, old, mannequin. I had a fairly nice one until I gave it away shortly after moving to this smaller place in 2003. I have so many times wished I had her back!

Such a beautiful find, Jacqueline! And yes, her dress is very Miss Haversham. You're going to be having tons of fun with her. I can already see some of those sweet vintage aprons tied around her waist. Does she have a name?
