The Royal Tea

Ok..so this series of shots were inspired by the outfit I posted on Instagram.  As with many images, what looks good on an idea board does not translate to a model or doll.  In this case, the hat that looked good on the board did not translate well to actual model.  And…as much as I wanted to use it, the teapot did not make it into the final shots either.  Sometimes it works out sometimes it doesn’t.  The post is called “The Royal Tea” because the dog is wearing a crown .Winking smile

Here was the Instagram inspiration:

You will notice a little bit of a color cast difference between my Instagram shots and the other images I use in the blog.  The reason behind this is a difference in camera.  Most if not all of the outfit boards that I post are shot with…wait for it…my IPhone.  If I ever get around to doing my next photography installment you will learn more about that.  Suffice it to say, as good as these new phones are these days, they still have a long way to go as far as color balance.  Ok…geek photography moment over.

I am sharing snippets of the photo process on some of these posts on my instagram stories so feel free to follow that if you want.  They disappear in 24 hours so they are there and then they are gone.

I am totally in love with this doll.  She is Rare Appearance Dania Zarr from Integrity Toys.  She was a WClub exclusive for 2014.  Still one of my favorite models.  The dress is a new acquisition from the talented Gwen of Gwendolyn’s Treasures

Portrait of a Lady

My husband, daughter and I recently traveled to NYC.  We were there to see my daughter perform at Carnegie Hall.  It was one of those epic moments for a parent and she had a solo (which she nailed!) in one of the pieces they played so it was a piece of cake with major frosting kind of afternoon.  While in NYC, my husband and I were encouraged by a friend ( Thank you Hilda!) to visit the Frick Museum.  What a joy that was!  While there, we saw this amazing portrait and the moment I saw it, I had a picture idea pop into my head.  A visit to their gift shop provided the supplies and this is the result.

If you are ever in NYC and have an afternoon to see some lovely paintings housed in an amazing mansion, I highly recommend visiting The Frick Museum.


Making a Rare Appearance Dania

WClubbers waited an exorbitant 6 months for this one.  Yep, I checked the numbers…first deposit went in on this baby around December 3rd of 2014.  Was she worth the wait?  I honestly have to say…YES.  The promo shots on this doll had expectations levels extremely high so I was very skeptical on whether it would deliver.  I am happy to say Rare Appearance Dania delivers and then some.  This lady exudes chic upscale class.

I will say it again…this is one classy lady.  She comes with a pair of grey gloved hands which I adore.  Here jewelry is simple, classic and understated.  The handbag and shoes are TO DIE FOR.

Jordan and Dania….On Approach for Landing

…at Inside the Fashion Doll Studio.  I received notice from my most excellent dealer Barb that these two ladies are on their way to me.  Since it has been some time since these  were announced…{cough) ummm April…{cough},  I thought I would recap the particulars about these newest releases.  It seems like these dolls are coming out really, really late this year.  The bulk of the Integrity Toys 2012 lineup is still yet to come and I am afraid there will be an avalanche here in the next couple of months.  I better get my skis ready to ride it down.

It looks like the influence for these two lovelies is the captain of Integrity’s design team Jason Wu.  This is from his 2012 Spring RTW show.

As with the convention dolls, the accessories look to be fantastic!  Looking forward to some deboxing time.
