Hello there Blog Peeps!
I celebrated a birthday in August; had a wonderful birthday too. Any day that I wake up is a good day wouldn't you say?! Thinking about the alternative--not waking up--is NOT a good thing.
With that said, let me tell you a story--About 2 months ago or so, I bought a most beautimus dress at Goodwill for $15. When I bought it, I knew what I wanted to do with it too. No, I didn't want to wear it!!
I wanted to display it on a dress form in my house. So my search for a not-so-expensive-but-pretty dress form commenced. Have you priced them? Good golly, they are not cheap!
A good friend of mine, Lisa, knew I was looking for one and decided to buy me one for my birthday!!! Yeeeehawwwww! She and I went to the Warrenton/Roundtop Antique Show and she showed me all these dress forms made out of wire. I picked one and here it is WITH my beautimus and cheap dress from Goodwill hunting.
Isn't it gorgeous? I LOVE them both--the dress and the dress form. So perfect together. And yes it IS a pair of Mickey ears in the background--you are soooooo observant!
The Goodwill hunting dress is a size 8 (yikes) and the dress form is probably about a size 12 or 14, with extra wide shoulders and hips. I tried every which way to get the dress on the dress form but couldn't.
Yes, I did the unthinkable. I cut the dress in the back. It hurt, let me tell you.
Stay tuned to see my whole display with this dress, okay?
As always, if a dress won't fit, you MAKE IT FIT--and have fun while you're doing it.
