Fun With the Dress Form: Mid 70s

No Comments   Posted by gretchen |  Category:Fashion, Photos, Styling

When it comes to fashion history, I think the 70s take the prize for everyday glamour.  Hair was shiny and full of volume.  Gold jewelry everywhere.  Jeans that made your legs go on for miles.  This outfit captures that 70s glamour, but doesn’t look too dated.

Fun With The Dress Form: Fancy Weekend

No Comments   Posted by gretchen |  Category:Fashion, Photos, Styling

I own a dress form (technically, a mannequin, but that doesn’t sound as artsy).  I own clothes.  I like to put together outfits.  I am such an artistic control freak that I don’t trust someone else to take pictures of me in outfits.  Also, it’s more fun to style on a dress form.

May I present to you, the new weekly feature: “Fun With the Dress Form”.



Imagine that you are someone who spends your weekends doing something other than sitting around in comfy pants, eating Mallomars dipped in peanut butter while watching the third season of Gilmore Girls on DVD.  Imagine that you go out to brunch, followed by a trip to the farmers’ market.  This would be a great outfit to wear.
