Is it wrong to love her so much?????




Meet my lovely dress form, made completely out of cardboard! Isn't she to die for? I found her this summer on vacation at the Oregon coast. She was almost out of sight, high up in a corner, when I spied her.....nonchalantly asked the shopkeeper how much she was. She said "I think I have $55 on her but that sounds like too much. How about $35?" Hmmm, I'll have to give that one some thought, ok, thought about it, I'll take her!!!!!" 
She's in pristine condition too, like she was never "used".
Do any of you have a cardboard dress form? I'm getting the impression they're quite rare.....
Of course I'd love to have a vintage Wolf dress form, but where to put her?
I love them all.....

Love the look of your dress form. I noticed these dress forms while searching ebay one day. I've never owned one but I do think they're pretty sweet!

I just love your dress form you bought. How cool to find her on your vacation. What a memory. I've got my eye out for one, but they are in hot demand right now, so at this time am content with my smaller one I have.
What a great post.
