The Elyse Chronicles: Daywear to Nightwear

©2018 Inside The Fashion Doll Studio - The Elyse Chronicles Daywear to Nightwear

©2017 Bergdorf Goodman

The Bergdorf Goodman Elsye in the navy pants and yellow and navy sweater is clearly a daywear look.  To me it is VERY Sonya Rykiel and while I loved the turban on the real life fashion, I don’t feel it translated well to 1/6 scale.

Perhaps the turban will be put to good use elsewhere in my collection…that remains to be seen but…I needed to transform this Elyse from daywear to eveningwear.

This is all in one humongous giftset!

How do many collectors feel about this???

Take my money

Take my money 2

Yep…that is me…the lady in red above and to be honest I would be slamming it down on the counter too with a definitive “YASSSSS”.  Vanessa might not be my favorite face mold but THIS Vanessa for me is “all that and a bag of chips”.  Many are lamenting the increased price tag and I get that.  She is more expensive, true.  She also comes with three separate and amazing looks and …LUGGAGE!!  I guess my threshold for being willing to pay more is, luggage.  I don’t think I’m alone

Preorder for this lovely is open to WClub members UNTIL JANUARY 19TH, 2018 AT NOON EASTERN TIME!

Coquettish in the Sunshine

The first release from Integrity Toy’s 2017 Fashion Royalty La Femme collection has entered The Fashion Doll Studio!  I really didn’t think I was going to be able to do any shots in the natural sunshine today as we have smoky haze( welcome to the Pacific Northwest and all of it’s summer forest fires) but it has turned the light this really cool pinkish red so I thought      “ why not!”  Keep in mind that these shots are done through a pinkish red filter which gives Jordan’s skin a rosier hue than normal.

Love this mocha skin tone and the honey blond tresses on this lady.  One of the softest Jordan’s I have seen in a while.  The clothing is on trend and the quality is good.  the fabric is nice and supple as well as the pants.  The bustier has a nice leather feel and fits well.  The real stars of this show are the accessories though.

Meet You at East 59th!

Wow!!  Wow, Wow, Wow is all I can say of Integrity Toys newest product line.  For those of us who have been waiting for the return of our beloved Victoire Roux…the waiting just got a little sweeter.  While we did not get a new Victoire, we did receive some of her friends and this new world that IT has created looks to be amazing!  The director of this yumminess is the uber talented Chris Stoeckel.  While we did not get Victoire in this new release, we did get word that she is coming.  {That sound in the background is Rebecca squealing with happiness}.  The story behind this line is 1950’s Hollywood and a possible feud between competing divas..I’m thinking Joan Crawford/Betty Davis.  With all that drama, you need killer fashions and who better to do that than Chris.  We have loved his 1950s inspired couture in the Victoires of the past.  It looks like his future designs will take us to a whole other level.  Soooooo excited!

{FAINT!!!}  Oh…my…word.  I am traveling as I write this blog post and I was sitting at a restaurant yesterday morning when these pictures came into the WClub members inboxes.  I am absolutely sure I embarassed myself when I squealed with delight on this one.  Where to start with the love…..hmmmm.  Ok, first is the color combinations.  Adore this red and black with the raven hair.  New face sculpt on these characters and I love them.  I don’t advocate smoking ( Constance..you need to rethink that one) but the props are so appropriate for the 1950’s.  It’s the attention to detail and the playability that I love the most I think.  Chris has given us two separate looks on every doll.  Bonus!!!  Love it!!!

{FAINT…AGAIN}.  Chris, next time give us collectors some warning before you unleash this kind of gorgeousness on us  My heart cant take it Winking smile

A redhead in electric blue!  Adore.  Love, love, love the silhouette on the gown.  Also love the embroidered pants look.  the accessories are spot on…except…for the plastic shoes.  Nope…no at this pricepoint people  I am hoping IT rethinks this one.  I and many collectors concur…this is a misplaced note in the middle of a beautiful symphony.  Apparently Evelyn likes the makeup because she comes with a full set.  Adorable!  Head to ankle gorgeous…plastic shoes need an upgrade.

{Rebecca now has a concussion from fainting}

OK, so this might be my favorite.  The two separate looks are to die for..evening to day perfection.  The accessories are spot on.  I adore the floral headpiece.  The plastic shoes have to go but everything else is a huge thumbs up.  Also adore the facial screening on her.

{Rebecca is now on her way to hospital…too many faints and now has concussion}

Cocktails indeed!  I know I will need a few after this collection to lament my poor, poor wallet.  I have a think for well tailored suits.  This one is perfection  I love both sets of gloves with these looks  The driving gloves in particular!  Simple jewelry is perfect here as the suit s the star.  The shoes..oh why oh why with the plastic.  I’m sound like a broken record…I know.  The facial screening on her is my least favorite of this collection but not a deal breaker.  I’m still buying. 

The big questions from me and many collectors is…what is the body on this lady?  Is it FR2, Victoire…enquiring minds want to know.  I am sure we will get answers soon.  At the time this goes to print there will be a live chat with the designer Chris Stoeckel.  I am sure he will give us this info. 

I hate the write and run but I am on he road driving a bunch of orchestra instruments and luggage back from L.A.  Will hopefully have more information to share with you tomorrow.

If you want to purchase these beauties find your local Integrity Toys Authorized Dealer  I would run not walk as many of these have already sold out to WClub members.

Opening the Treasure Chest: “Tokyo Chic”

One of the things I enjoy most about The National Barbie Doll Collector Convention are the amazing One of a Kind (OOAK) artists that bring their creations to the convention.  Most of them sell at private shows or in their rooms in the days leading up to the official start of the convention.  Many collectors, including myself, go up to 4 days early to convention so they can attend these private parties and see what kind of OOAK creations they can add to their collections.  For some collectors, these OOAK’s are the focus of their collection.  There are so many talented artists within this community.

One such artist is Julia Lapshova of Julia Originals.  I was lucky to get to her room early enough and purchased this lovely creation.  Her attention to detail and tailoring is always extraordinary.  I am so very happy to have Ms. Tokyo Chic in my personal collection.  You can also follow Julia on Facebook
