Summer Magic

I think Steven Frasier is amazing.  I believe I have almost every couture outfit Dressmaker Details has ever produced.  I love his aesthetic and the fact that he fits his clothing to fit both the more voluptuous Fashion Royalty and the slimmer Barbie Silkstone form.   I also appreciate the details he puts into his product.  If you are buying a couture outfit, you will  get the jewelry, purse,gloves, nylons and shoes to go with it.  He typically designs a special couture outfit for the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention each year.  It is something I look forward to every convention.  This year, his design was called “Summer Magic” and indeed it is.  I absolutely adore this creation…so frothy and feminine.  It also fits in with my collection perfectly.  It was very hard to find a model to wear this lovely creation.  There were simply too many choices.  I wanted a model who would showcase the femininity of this gown and really enhance the beautiful soft blue of it’s fabric.  I finally settled on High Tea and Savories because I just love the haughty high fashion look of this lady.  Her soft makeup palette makes her a favorite of mine when I have an uber feminine gown.  I also felt the beautiful blue of her eyes would be complimented by the gorgeous color of this gown.

The details of this gown are worth the purchase alone.  The dress has little sequins and beads sewn into the soft tulle.  The bracelet is phenomenal.  I had trouble closing it around my models wrist so I added a small round silver link and it works perfectly now.   If you don’t already use these, a pair of bullnose curved pliers are a must when it comes to putting jewelry on these diminutive divas.

Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi–Mellow Yellow

I am pulling from the archives here to satisfy a Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi.  I have had these photos posted on my Flickr account for a while but have not posted them on my blog.  I just love High Tea and Savories in this gown.  I think the blue flowers really bring out the blue in her eyes much better than her original brown dress does.  I love this design of James Bogue in particular and I have a number of versions in different colors.

Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi!

Many of you know I am a huge fan of James Bogue and his work.  He has a store on Etsy where he sells his exquisite creations  I completely adore the  styling and workmanship that goes into his designs.  His creations never fail to inspire some of my favorite photos and this recent shoot was no exception.  I received an especially frothy and pinkalicious ( yes it’s a word! LOL!) dress that I could not wait to photograph.  Miss High Tea and Savories Silkstone had the pleasure of modeling  the dress for the shoot.

Vendredi in French means Friday and I thought it sounded better than Bogue’s Vogues Friday Winking smile

Spring has arrived at The Fashion Doll Studio!

It was sunny in the suburbs of Seattle yesterday so that meant time in the studio.  I received some absolutely stunning fashions from James Bogue of Bogue’s Vogues this past week and I am having fun photographing them.  I will be doing a segment on my blog called “Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi!” and it will pop up on random Fridays.  My first one will be this Friday and here is a taste of what you will see….

Welcome Spring in Bogue's Vogues
