Falling into Fashion

A little girl who was lost, until she found the wonderful world of fashion.

Nostalgia

Does anybody remember these? They’re called Harumika. Basically what they are is these dress forms, with a hole in the back. You take this stick and jab the fabric so it stays on the dress form. It’s genius if you ask me. It really taught me (somewhat) of fabric manipulation, even though it’s on an extremely small-scale. I used to use them all the time. And somehow they got shoved into the bottom of a drawer and I hadn’t used them in about a year. When I took them out, I knew I had to play with them.

They don’t really have any kind of correlation, but they were kind of inspired by Amy Winehouse/ 50’s/ tropical/ No Doubt. If that makes any sense at all. Especially with the cherry-print bandeau with the long skirt. And, obviously, the full 50’s style skirt the with music nots. Please excuse  the severe clashing of prints, even though it does look #totesamaze if you ask me.

I honestly don’t even know if you can still buy them: I used to buy them at toys R us. I  know so chic.  www.harumika.com
