My blog friend Amanda (great name, right?) dresses her shop mannequin, Matilda, and does a little "What Matilda Wore" tweet, and I thought--of course! I should dress up Sabine (my mannequin) in these outfits. One of my favorite consignment shops in DC also blogs an outfit each week, and I love how they include shoes (one of my favorite parts!), so I used that idea to get the head to toe look.
Here she is, Sabine's debut on the blog, in all of her Miskabelle splendor:
|SHOP: dress--coming this week (S/M), belt--$15, shoes--$33|
I love metallics for the winter, but adding a pair of patent shoes in neutral colors tones down the outfit enough for daytime. It would also look amazing with a soft black scarf looped around the neck.
You could also pair the dress with tights and boots and a tweed blazer for a totally different look. The oatmeal/gold color scheme is more versatile than you would think!
I'm looking forward to dressing up Sabine in the future...and myself too (maybe even tomorrow!).
