Multi-use mannequin!

When I was little, I always dreamt of being a fashion designer (along with a teacher, a singer, an actress, a make-up artist, a baker etc!) and I have always loved clothes. It finally clicked to me that it is possible to make your own clothes last year, so I bought some material and got stuck into it. I had always said that I would like a mannequin since I can remember, but I talk so much that I didn’t think my parents actually listened to me, just agreed. But it turns out that they do actually listen, so roll on 3rd February 2012 and I was given a mannequin as a birthday gift off my parents. At first my friends and I just dressed it up for fun, and then I realized that mannequins really are multi-use! I have discovered that, along with using them to help when making clothes, that you can use them for holding earrings. We all know that earrings can be difficult to keep track of if you don’t have a jewellery box, and they can ruin (especially feather earrings,) so I keep a lot of my earrings on my mannequin.

I obviously don’t have this many on all the time, I just put this amount on to show you. I find this is a really good way of keeping track to your earrings and other accessories.

As well as using the mannequin for holding earrings and accessories, I tend to use mine to put outfits on if I have plans for the next day.  I also put my jewellery and accessories that I will wear with the outfit on it too. For example, tomorrow I am going to the cinema with my cousin and some of my brothers and sisters (we will probably take up the whole cinema screen with the amount of us going! Big family!) so I will wear this lion top my sister gave me with some red ear studs and a turtle ring I purchased from a “Looky Looky Man” on a beach in Sardinia last year.

My sisters boyfriend bought one too, and I swear they have magic powers or something! Hope you like the post and if you want to know where any of the jewellery pieces or accessories are from, just comment below and I will let you know ;) xo
