Milan fashion week wrapped up day before yesterday and I was inspired by the Instagram feeds. I posted a photo of an outfit I felt would have worked at Milan fashion week and brought in the colors of the season.
The next step was to find a model to put it on and shoot.
Many of you may have already figured out that I have started posting preliminary images on Instagram of upcoming outfits or behind the scene things. I am also sharing on Instagram stories. The stories will include some videos of the doll room and new diorama or display items. If you are on Instagram, come and join the fun. Follow me to see the stories.
No, it’s not my latte order..but now that you mention it…I’ll take a grande please. I have been waiting to redress this stunning Tatyana that IT came out with in their 2015 Fashion Royalty collection. I predicted this doll to be a bit of a sleeper doll when her production photos were released. I still stand by that. While I liked her original ball gown ensemble, I think I prefer her redressed. She looks so regal and those perfect pink lips are the best. I looked at her and thought…elegant, luxury…leopard.
The Ivory leather dress is a recent purchase from the fabulous Etsy store Elenpriv. The clean lines and expert tailoring of her pieces have encouraged me to return to her shop again and again. You will be seeing more of her work in my photos. You can find her on Flickr too. Purse is from another Fabulous Etsy store DollhouseAra. They are expensive little pieces but you simply can’t beat the quality of them..or at least I have not found anything that rivals it…not even close. Lastly, coat is from Andy Warhol Barbie® Doll. Is the coat worth the price of the doll you ask? Hmmmm…it just may be. I am in love with this coat. This whole look is something I would put on my “ I would wear that!” Pinterest board.
The necklace was fashioned from a unique connector I found here. From the moment I found it, I knew I had to make a necklace out of it. Miss Tatyana pulls it off beautifully!
And another perfect bag from DollhouseAra!
