Mannequin, Yeah, I Did It Again and Again

The level of ridiculous I can get away with in my everyday life has skyrocketed. Because I can wear whatever I want...I wear whatever I want. This skirt was picked up at the swap by Elissa, but she decided to pass it on to me. It is much sparkly-er in real life than it comes across online.

When she handed it to me I wasn't sure what to wear it with, but my motto is "when in doubt, wear a band tee" and that pretty much always works out for me.

My other motto is something about washing my hair almost never.

So...I dressed my first mannequins at work the other day. I choose "floral" from the options Stephanie had put together and here is what I did...

Stephanie tweaked a couple things, but overall my original concept was kept in tact. Not bad for a first try! I'm pretty proud of them!

Oh my gosh, that is so exciting to see something you put together for work! I hadn't even thought about that but now you'd better post lots of stuff like this becaus I wanna see! So awesome--you are going to ROCK that mannequin thing every time. <3

I love your motto (well, both of them actually). I guess the band tee thing was already kind of a personal motto, I'd just never put it into words like that. Ha ha.

XOXO!

you can wear whatever you want to work. i'm jealous about that. at my old job, i could wear what i wanted to, as well. but - sometimes this is not enough to make you happy.

great job. your mannequins look so good. wanna go for thrift shopping now... : )

You managed a really nice balance between the colors and the different types of pieces. I love those shoes though they would kill my feet and that floral vest is really cute.

I want those shoes! Too bad they are so, so far away. :)

I'm glad you get to wear whatever you want. I like seeing you wear what makes you happy. It's fun!

I wish I could go back in time and keep all the old band tees I donated out of fear that I'd be seen with them again later in life. However... I did keep a few *NSYNC shirts... hmm... maybe I need to go dig those out.

Good job! I like the outfit on the bustform on the far right. I have a love hate relationship with dressing bustforms. Mostly hate because getting them on and off the pole can be kind of hard and they are heavy.

"When in doubt, wear a band tee." Love this!

Melissa said...

Okay first, you're adorable. And I'm jealous that you can wear whatever you want. So very jealous.

Second, those mannequins look AWESOME! I love how you styled them! You did a GREAT job!!!
