This is my friend, Mandy the Mannequin. She's very helpful at my jewelry shows when I want to model jewelry quickly without taking out someone's hair. She's also very quiet; that might be because she doesn't have a head, but I like to think it's because she's shy.
The hat is one of those things I bought in a weak moment; it's completely impractical and I think I've only worn it twice in three years. But it called to me from the top shelf in a consignment shop. The shop owner said it came from Italy, I'm a hopeless romantic, and the rest is history.
