Even my mannequin is getting in the Christmas spirit!
The first item added to her wardrobe is this linen and crinoline dress. Though its really not vintage yet (probably from the 90s), it certainly has that feel.
And of course she needs a vintage fur wrap. This one was picked up on a road trip to Nashville with Sue and Franny was a steal!
With a vintage fur you have to have some bling so I added this vintage rhinestone and white stone necklace. 
And not to be left out, her younger friend has a snow necklace; though I dont think well be having much snow for Christmas!
So now that were all ready, lets get this party started!

If you come to my home, you'll be greeted by my vintage mannequin. I think she's probably from the 50's, though I'm not quite sure. But as the seasons change, so does her wardrobe. With Christmas on the horizons, I dressed her up in a festive way. Now she's all ready to join in all holiday merriment!

Her name is LULU and all the presents get displayed around her base. I love dressing up mannequins. My previous one was from the 1920's but I was made an offer I couldn't refuse and the new owner flew all the way to pick her up and flew her back to the top end of Australia. Very well travelled mannequin. I can see you love yours. There are good fun to have around the house and dress up for all the holidays. Posted: 9:42 pm on December 19th
