High Profile Eugenia…The Redress

Given that I saw old Hollywood when I saw this lady for the first time, it can come as no surprise that I went for glamour when it came to redressing her.  When it came to a brunette with cherry red lips…there was only one color I wanted to go with…RED.

High Profile Eugenia

I was not one of the lucky few who was picked to purchase this lovely lady.  I was, however, one of the lucky few blessed with knowing someone who wanted to sell theirs.  You know who you are and I love ya!  This lady just screams old Hollywood glamour…I see Eva Gardner, Jane Russel or even Sophia Loren

Tropicalia–Day 1.03

Dinner was a festive affair with a really good meal and a whole table full of fun people.  Can’t ask for any better than that…well maybe a doll or two….and we had that too.  The fun mood was set by colorful décor as we entered the ballroom.

The centerpiece doll was “Force of Nature” Agnes…which I won the right to purchase.  Yipeee!

We also received a fabulous Anja doll, Jem earbuds and two 1/6 Tropicalia deck chairs as gifts.

I’m thinking I need a bigger suitcase Smile


Tomorrow, or today depending on where you are in the world, I am flying to the Fashion Royalty extravaganza that is convention.  This year’s theme is Tropicalia and if you want a really good explanation of what that means and perhaps the inspiration for this year’s convention go to Shuga Shug’s blog.  She has the most fantastic write-up on “Tropicalia”

I am taking my trusty point and shoot and hope to be able to upload photos quickly with my cool eyefi/IPad set up.  I hope to be blogging every night just like last year but cut me a little slack if I don’t.  A girl has to sleep too.  Be sure to follow my flickr for photos as I go through the day.   You can find my flickr by clicking on the photo to the right.  It should take you right there.



Wish me luck as I wind my way through security in a few hours.  coffee emoticon
