Paper Doll




Sometimes my mind is drawn to things that I can’t explain. Ask Brady. Without him to keep me in check, yesterday we would have ended up with a birdhouse for our apartment. I kinda hate birds, but it was cute and shiny.

Right now, a trend I’m loving is paper dolls. This is one I just cannot explain other than the pure fact that they are cute!

So how can this trend apply to your real life?

Well maybe you use a paper doll as an invite to your next bridal shower (complete with dresses!), bachelorette party (bachelorette flair) or birthday (cake!). Check out this cute invite to the spring 2011 Mulberry fashion show (pic via nitrolicious)


 A paper doll gift is an obvious choice for that little gal in your life. I love these ones from Amanda Atkins on Etsy and of course the set from Lily Pulitzer.




For your high-fashion friend, I LOVE the Paper Dolls book by Danielle Meder. She took the fall 2010 collection and created dolls inspired by seven designers from shows across the globe. At $80, this book isn’t thrifty, but then again fashion is rarely affordable!




And for the plain creepy – Just Like You paper dolls. Eeek!
