Dress Form

.
Several people have given me the same advice for packing to move...eliminate, eliminate, eliminate.

I agree. I just think it's so much more fun to acquire stuff.

I bought this last month at a darling vintagy store in Redlands. I justified the purchase by calling it my "birthday present," although by then I'm pretty sure that excuse had run its course.

When I brought it home, Jack said something like, "Oh Kate! Wow!" (Which I've learned is what dutiful husbands say when they're thinking, "What on earth?")

It's a dress form. And I had to have it.




I understand Jack's confusion at the time (and, admit it, yours right now), as he was not yet able to catch the vision.

I didn't want the dress form, I explained to him. I needed the dress form. To store the girls' hairbows.




So cute, huh?? I think it will look darling. Sitting inside its U-haul box.

That is the cutest thing I've ever seen! You should add that to your santabarbarabows web site somehow. I love Jacks response, i would have been scared if he said something like "that's fabulous, you know the girls bows would look great on that!"

SO stinkin' cute. Good thing we both have such nice husbands that genuinely enjoy when we get to go out and buy "stuff", have sister/mom time and "go to TJ maxx to look around.

cute, cute. I knew I needed to buy a dress form, I just didn't know what the use would be BESIDES being decorative. Thanks Katie for the justification!

Oh, Katie, WOW!

That is amazing! It looks sooo adorable, what a fun idea!

I would love something like that, but she would always be naked since our bows seems to disappear.

They are very popular.

So cute! I really think that your petite-ness would allow you to wear this------just be sure to add bows to the top.

Wow! That is so so so cute! Sometimes I think I would be okay with only sons, until I see your pictures, then I remember I have to have girls someday! But, when we move this time, we are only bringing what we can fit in our van, and it is so fun to get rid of everything- everyone should try it!

Maryann said...

Oh my gosh that is so cute! I never would have thought to use it for that. You're always so creative Katie!

Simply brilliant my dear! I have been racking my brains how to organize bows and you came up with the cleverest idea.

Where are you moving to? Please say D.C., please say D.C.

Oh my word! That is so cute! I can think of a million things to do with that dress form...and not one of them was that! I love it! I also love seeing things in a new way. Thanks.
