Well l FINALLY have a dress form....l know everyone else has had theirs for YEARS and you'll be thinkin' l'm a bit SLOW on the uptake, which might be a fair cop:-) but l'd been holding out to find one of those gorgeous old antique one's and l HAVE come across a few, but they all cost a fortune, PLUS a kidney.
So l realised it was NEVER gonna happen and kinda "sold out" to buy this NEW one, but it does have that vintage look, it came with the lovely crown and wasn't too spendy, so l figured it'd make a great Anniversary present....and is much prettier than the 10 litres of motorbike oil hubby requested as HIS present. The BIG bonus for him though is that he gets to enjoy BOTH presents, since it stands on HIS side of the bed....all he said was, it's weird that something without a head is wearing a crown.....he's just not gettin' it is he...haha!!
My cousin gave me this old bustier/corset a couple of years ago which fits well enough....added a tulle skirt, beaded belt, antique lace collar and vintage enamelled jewellery. The earrings were simply clipped onto the crown.
Sweet old 50's quilt adds a bit of shabby.
Just wanted to say thanks too for the lovely wedding congrats everyone and l'm so happy you's enjoyed sharing our wedding day story:-)
Wishing you all a fun, sunshiny weekend.
Til next time,
