Maisie the mannequin...

You know I can't resist fun accessories and when Out There Interiors offered to send me something from their website, I couldn't resist. I have worked with them before and as I was so impressed last time I knew I was onto a good thing! I had a pretty hard time choosing what I wanted to review until I saw this wonderful mannequin. I have always wanted one but never had the space until now so when I saw it, I couldn't order it quickly enough! I was super excited when she arrived and Maisie (as I have christened her) is happily ensconced in the corner of my living room.

She arrived in a big box in pieces which Mark and I put together on Friday night (who says I don't know how to party?!) Thank goodness my Grandad takes in my parcels for me as the 2 ft tall box this came in would never have fitted in our letterbox!


I have to say though, I was nowhere near as impressed with this mannequin as I was with my 'M' lamp. You can see here how sloppy some of the glue is and where the fabric has worn through after rubbing on the side of the box. If I had paid full price for this I would have been really disappointed, it doesn't look like a lot of care has been taken with it :( 


There's nothing better than playing dress up and luckily I have been able to disguise most of these things with a few well placed accessories ;)

Despite it not being as perfect as you'd hoped, it's such a great addition to your room! I would definitely put my outfits on there and it's so useful for blog shots I think!

what a fabulous addition to a room! Bit of a shame it was not quite as perfect as it first seemed though x

I'd really love one of these to store all my jewellery on, but unfortunately our flat is so tiny I don't think there'd really be room! She looks lovely, you've more than covered up the scuffy marks with nice things!

Shame about the glue but she is pretty! I've always wanted my own mannequin! <3
