Are you a fashionista? You love clothes? You love shopping? I, Miss Footloose, do not belong to your tribe, but hey, once in a while I do get rather fascinated by the fashion scene. I was in Rome last month, and I walked the streets for hours and could not help looking in the shop windows. I was especially charmed by all the bald mannequins. Below are some photos of what I saw. And no, I did not buy any of these clothes, although I was tempted by a few items. Once in a while I forget I am not a skinny model.
Maybe I should have bought one of these outfits. Then a friend might say, “Oh, I love your dress!” And I’d be able to say, ever so casually, “Oh, I got that in Rome last month.” How cool would that be? Sadly, I’m not cool. Really, I should work on that.
Now that I am back in Moldova, I just noticed that in the upscale shops on Pushkin Street in Chisinau (the capital), the mannequins go bald as well. Mannequins may have been bald for years, but I never noticed.
