The 20 Best Fashion Blogs for Professional Women," in Forbes magazine. It's happened before that some mention of Rags sends traffic my way and catches me unprepared! There will be an outfit post come Tuesday.
Early readers of Rags, will know that I have a manikin in my living room. She stands in all her resin glory wearing one of her two wigs, a velveteen shirt that's too little and too loud for my tastes, and several of the beautiful fall leaves I collected from the magnolia tree next door!
If THIS troubles you, let me explain. For a week she was bottomless. This seemed to trouble my husband mightily, even though she's not very anatomically correct. I wanted to put leggings on her, but once I removed the skirt she had been wearing, I realized that I would have to cut a hole in the leggings to make it work (if you look close, you can see the flesh colored metal rod that supports her). I don't wear leggings very often, but I didn't want to ruin either of the two pair I own. I came home one day to find her sporting men's "Fruit of the Loom" and THAT bothered me, even though it has been just fine with Jeremy Scott this season.
The "fig" leaf was our compromise.
She's a couple of sizes smaller than I am, but I shop for her as well as myself. For several years, she wore a snakeskin vinyl dress that fit nicely with our decor.
She's been known to startle visitors. And when one of our grand-daughters asked her older sister why we had her in our living room, sister patiently explained that she was grandpa's adult doll. :)
