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.

And…for this 10th anniversary edition, they are pulling out one often longed for luxury of giftsets  past…a gorgeous case to put it in.  This harkens back to the Haute Luxuries sets of the first years of Fashion Royalty dolls.  Classy and so very much appreciated.

So the whole package comes to you like this…

The gown bears a striking resemblance to a couture Dior worn by Charlise Theron at the 2014 Oscars ( one of my picks  that year for favorite gown of the Oscars)

While the doll loves the party, I am loving the entire giftset!!  When I first saw this offering from the WClub, my thought was “Now THAT is a gift set!!!”  If they wanted to leave the WClub members happy after a year of fairly large product delivery delays, this will do it.  Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for this one.  I adore that this is a raven haired Elyse ( even though we received another brunette Elyse offering at convention but poor girl suffers from hydrocephalic hairstyle **see previous blog post**so there you have it).  I love the makeup and hair and the gown, while still a little too close to black for me, is gorgeous.  I am really loving the jewelry in this offering as well.

WClub members have a generous 2 and a half weeks to decide if they want to preorder this beauty.  Deadline to order is Tuesday, January 5th, 2016 at Noon Eastern Time (New York Time).

Are WClub members excited about this offering??  Oh, I think so. Winking smile
