the caged dressform
my glamorous sister-in-law has a lovely home with a beautiful mixture of accessories — chief among them, a collection of dress forms. She is in the fashion industry, so it makes perfect sense and I’ve admired her pretty collection for years.
while I was at the architectural salvage place last week, I spied a caged version of a dress form and purchased it on the spot. Of course it helped that it was a reproduction and had a price tag corresponding to the fact that it is a widely available decorative item (rather than a rare antique). But that’s perfectly ok with me.
now at home in the parlor, it gives a feminine touch to the general ambiance in this cozy room.
The scarf tied at her waist belonged to my mom and I frequently accessorized with it playing dress-up as a very young girl.
The room is still an evolving project, but this little caged dress form is a perfect addition to its evolution.
Thank you for visiting today, I truly enjoy your company!
