i added a new crowned beauty to my dresser last night.
much like my lusting over Em’s leather jacket,
the moment i spotted Emily Schuman’s vintage mannequin (currently available on Etsy for a chunk of cash $300+),
i knew something similar needed to be mine.
this past summer, i searched high and low at antique shops, thrift stores, garage sales, etc & didn’t have much luck.
but then, as if it were meant to be, a random trip to Homegoods ushered into my new home a vintage-inspired mannequin baby.
the little beaut has been sittin’ pretty, & quite lonely, atop my dresser until last night when i was gifted with a more vintagey, more burlappy, more original design (discovered at an antique shop in Noblesville, IN).
so now, the duo reigns over a few of my statement necklaces-
making my designer-wannabe heart pitter pat.
