Giselle has been restyled as Miss Red Butterfly for today’s blog post. I have been inspired by some beautiful images coming from Dior’s Spring Couture collection and the new captain at it’s helm Maria Grazia Chiuri (formerly of Valentino). She had unicorn’s lining the walk into the collection venue! Ok, Ok, they were not real unicorns but still….very whimsical. She had a park like setting and I supposed that has helped influence the backdrop for this shoot as well.

I have been inspired by some of the free flowing fashions I have seen in the past week from Coachella so I decided to dress my new Giselle in a fashion I received this past week from Rimdoll. I have also been wanting too use these adorable paper roses hued in yellow and pink. I needed the right outfit to showcase them and this glorious gown from Rimdoll was just the thing. It is all that and a bag of chips people! Spring floral romantic with a little bit of edginess in there too.

I absolutely LOVE the facial screening on this Giselle. Very soft and romantic.
Many fashion collections are targeting the rich pocket of the Millennial generation right now. I was interested in styling one of the most recent NuFace girls to embody that plus stay true to the original theme of IT and Jessy Ayala’s Reckless collection…the movie “Clueless”. It all started with this fabulous jacket from the Etsy shop ElenPriv. It continued with the amazing necklace from Etsy shop IsabelleParisJewels. The rest just came into place after that.

All good things must come to an end. Or…in my case…all sunny days in the garden eventually give way to rain. I managed to get three separate photo shoots completed before the rain started so I am happy with that. For the last installment of this romantic garden series I paired a favorite embroidered sheath from Bellissima Couture and a yummier than yummy coat from Lovetones. The hat is a story. It originally came from Bogue’s Vogues and I have to admit…I got creative with the Russian netting on this one. Hope you all enjoy.

Accessories: the box, macaron and bag were all done by me. The boxwood trees in planters were from Pier One. The bench was found on Ebay.
I received the lovely dolls I ordered from the “Reckless” collection from my fabulous Integrity Toy’s dealer this past week and I have to say…I am not disappointed at all. The facial screenings are delightful and the fashions and accessories exceed expectations on most levels. My only complaint is that the choker necklaces on both Ayumi and Erin needed to have adjustments. On mine at least the choker was too tight a fit and I ended up adding another bigger jump ring so it would close around the neck. I know some people are just popping the heads off and putting the necklace on but that seemed like too much work to me given how often I redress these models…so the jump ring was a good solution for me.
The braids were a surprise to me and apparently a lot of other collectors. They didn’t show these in the promo shots so I made sure to showcase them in these pictures. Definitely a Moschino influence with the burned edge bow.

Jessy Ayala did a marvelous job with the modern day “Clueless” inspired collection. It’s young, its hip, it’s edgy and it also manages to be fun. I am looking forward to photographing different looks.
I also ordered the Erin but did not get individual shots of her so I went ahead and did a group shot of the girls I did order. I will be adding Lilith and hope upon all hope that I can add the Eden to. Please shine down on me oh Lottery Gods.
And…because, as Jessy explained to us at the last IT convention, this collection was inspired by the movie Clueless…I just had to do this.
