Happy Wednesday, ladies. I’m trying something new today, so I’ll be curious to get your thoughts.
It’s not always possible for me to try on the garments I see on a mannequin, but I was able to yesterday, so let’s have some fun.
I did my best with what I could grab in 2 minutes at the store but I’d like to hear how you would style what this mannequin is wearing.
We all know I am 5’4″, and I estimate this mannequin is at least 5’7″ so the proportions look very different on me. She also has proportionally long legs and arms with what looks to be an hourglass shape. I have broad shoulders and a straight torso with very few curves.
The crops are cropped on her, not on me.
- She has faux heels on and I’m barefoot so I tucked the top in further to try and make my legs appear longer.
- I’m not flattered by boxy tops so I tried twisting the bottom and passing it through a belt loop to snug up the look.
- High crew necks and orange aren’t very flattering on me either so I swapped the top for this scoop neck tee in a color that’s better for my coloring.
So what are your thoughts? Would you wear part or all of the mannequin’s outfit and how would you style it to work for you?
The Memorial Day sales are kicking off and they’ll be epic as usual. Here are a few early ones-
Talbots – the summer style event is on with 30% off your entire order. I stopped in yesterday and found lots of great pieces, all on sale.

Now back to the mannequin…what do you think?
