If your full-figured, triangular Christmas tree were to go on a diet, it might look like this Fashionista Christmas Tree.
This isn’t the first time that women’s curves have been put on display at Christmas. Remember Ralphie’s dad from “A Christmas Story” who decided to put his Leg Lamp prize in the front window for all to see?
The Fashionista Christmas Tree
This is the prelit 5′ Christmas tree designed for those who have an interest in fashion. Available exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer, this tree eschews the geometric lines of typical conifers, taking its shape instead from a classic couturier’s dress form. The high collar, long sleeves, wasp waist, and hoop skirt are clad with faux pine needles, creating a topiary effect. The tree is pre-strung with 150 warm white LEDs that enhance without overpowering its silhouette and the dress comes accessorized with eight removable iridescent red globe ornaments. Topped with a matte-finish metal star, the sturdy metal frame rests atop a filigreed base, while the dress’ 15″ hem leaves ample clearance for gifts. Assembly required. Plugs into AC with 6′ cord. 60″ H x 23 1/4″ W x 12 3/4″ D. (9 lbs.)
Christmas seems to be completely up to one’s interpretation. Even Charlie Brown’s little tree looked nothing like “the perfect tree” but it was the most-real and special one to him. In fact, replicas of the Charlie Brown-style tree can be purchased.
The point is: you get to decide what your perfect tree will be. Santa doesn’t discriminate against trees; just naughty people.
For the holidays, change things up a bit and get a haute-couture tree. Work it, now! The 5-foot Fashionista Christmas Tree is only available at Hammacher Schlemmer for $249.95.
