dress me up

January 13, 2011

For a long time now, I’ve hankered after a dressmakers mannequin for my wardrobe as a fun display idea.

I imagine dressing it up in some seldom-worn but fabulous outfit, or developing good enough aim to rakishly toss a fedora onto it, or draping it in sparkly jewelry.

It’s all very romantic and tempting, and the only thing stopping me (well, besides the price) is that I’m mildly concerned about it being creepy! Is that silly? I just don’t want to have a memory lapse and think for a second that someone’s standing in the corner of my room!

I suppose if I dressed it well enough that wouldn’t happen – I mean, no robber is going to stand there in your evening gown, all the jewelry you own, and a vintage hat, right?

Please, god do not answer that or I’ll never sleep again.
