Barbie for big girls.

Monaco Royale Vanessa has arrived!

I knew when I first saw photos of this lady that she was something that would fit right in with my collection.  I have eagerly anticipated this first club doll offering from the W Club for 2011.  She arrived this past week and I have to say….the promo photos did not even come close to doing this lovely lady justice.  This lady harkens back to the high glamour days of Fashion Royalty’s earlier collections.  She just drips style and elegance.  I hope my photos are able to convey this.  Her jewelry is gorgeous and extremely well made.  I love the chunky necklace.  There is an additional bracelet that came with the set but I didn’t feel she needed it ( It is sure nice to have extra though ).  I love the fact that she came with her own cocktail..I keep wanting to remind her though “ don’t spill that on your gorgeous gown…I mean that’s cranberry juice in there and that is peach silk you are wearing…Danger!”.

The ornate gold table in the photo was a find on ebay.  The picture behind Vanessa was a flea market find and the little red foo dogs were found at a Chinese import store.

    • Thank you so much Peter. Isn’t she fabulous! It isn’t often that I fall completely in love with one of these lovely ladies right when I open the box….but I did with this one.
