“Nothing But A Scarf And Hat”

While out and about accomplishing some retail therapy with my spousal unit today we came across this mannequin in a retail store. It was a bit disconcerting since I can’t imagine anyone walking about wearing just a thin scarf and a stylish hat but I suppose it is a thing somewhere in those progressive areas of the world. I suppose in the long run it did its job, it definitely caught my attention – I kinda’ sort of liked it in a sassy sort of way… [2 July 2016]

“People always think that history proceeds in a straight line. It doesn't. Social attitudes don't change in a straight line. There's always a backlash against progressive ideas.”
~ Erica Jong
My spousal unit is currently studying to become a patisserie chef (and I'm getting fatter). I live for the day when she takes my well meant advice and cooks at home wearing nothing but her apron. But I can see how this would be disconcerting in a store...

@graemestevens - I like the way you think Graeme, as long as @jo38 doesn't make the same request when I am cooking!! LOL

Is this wood? It looks like wood in the picture. A wood mannequin would be awesome.
