Okay….so typically I adhere to the philosophy that the total is the sum of it’s parts.  In the case of this doll…I think it’s worth thinking about the individual parts instead of the sum it is showing here.  Am I justifying the purchase of this doll???  Most likely…. but stay with me here:

1) Purple fur?  Not feeling it with this outfit unless she is planning a late night walking kind of profession but partner that fur with a black evening dress and then we might have something.

2) Green Jacket with rose colored skirt and purple belt….not feeling that either.  However, put that jacket with another dress or skirt and we will have a winner.  Same thing with the skirt.  Purple belt?…will need to keep thinking on that.

3) Boots and purse….not feeling those with this outfit but on their own with something else…oh yeah.

4) The hat.  Not feeling it with this outfit but can always use another black hat.

5) Fishnets:  Works with the edgy outfit concept so another keeper item.

6) The Doll.  A redheaded Vanessa 3.0  Don’t really need to justify anything else…I’m buying.

7) Lace overlay top has potential as well.  That is actually something that works with that skirt in my opinion.

Your Kind of Model Kesenia..On Approach

Limited edition of 400.  I am normally not a big fan of the open mouth face mold but there was something about the platinum hair and the little black fur jacket that spoke to me.  Hope her promo shots are close the the actual doll.  I have to give Integrity a big high five on their accessories this year.  They are phenomenal!!  Now…if we could just get the delivery date a little closer to when they announce these beauties…life would be almost perfect.

As it has been a while since this doll was announced….here is a recap of her promo shots.

Jordan and Dania….On Approach for Landing

…at Inside the Fashion Doll Studio.  I received notice from my most excellent dealer Barb that these two ladies are on their way to me.  Since it has been some time since these  were announced…{cough) ummm April…{cough},  I thought I would recap the particulars about these newest releases.  It seems like these dolls are coming out really, really late this year.  The bulk of the Integrity Toys 2012 lineup is still yet to come and I am afraid there will be an avalanche here in the next couple of months.  I better get my skis ready to ride it down.

It looks like the influence for these two lovelies is the captain of Integrity’s design team Jason Wu.  This is from his 2012 Spring RTW show.

As with the convention dolls, the accessories look to be fantastic!  Looking forward to some deboxing time.


Tropicalia!!

Tomorrow, or today depending on where you are in the world, I am flying to the Fashion Royalty extravaganza that is convention.  This year’s theme is Tropicalia and if you want a really good explanation of what that means and perhaps the inspiration for this year’s convention go to Shuga Shug’s blog.  She has the most fantastic write-up on “Tropicalia”  http://www.shugashug.com/2012/09/25/tropicalia/

I am taking my trusty point and shoot and hope to be able to upload photos quickly with my cool eyefi/IPad set up.  I hope to be blogging every night just like last year but cut me a little slack if I don’t.  A girl has to sleep too.  Be sure to follow my flickr for photos as I go through the day.   You can find my flickr by clicking on the photo to the right.  It should take you right there.

Poppy Parker: Gallery Girl

I am in no way advocating the show “Gallery Girls” here.  I saw a little bit of it and was…well…not impressed.  The name rather comes from my idea when I redressed  the newly released “The Happening” Poppy Parker in Mattel’s Tim Gun separates.  I dressed her in the crisp white shirt and black skirt with glasses and thought she looked like some hip art gallery dealer.  The diorama just kind of filled in after that.  Hope you enjoy!

“Lilac Frost” Poppy Parker

The WClub announced a new 2012 exclusive to their members last week.  Her name is Lilac Frost and Integrity and David Buttry have given us another treat for the year.  You have to be a WClub member to buy.

Here is the writeup from Integrity on her…

Presenting: "Lilac Frost" Poppy Parker!  

There is a brisk chill this early morning in New York City.  Miss Poppy Parker is on Fifth Avenue on her way to not just any Go-See.  She will be seen by a room full of casting agents, ad executives, art directors and event coordinators who will decide if she will be selected from the hundreds of other models.  She hopes those extra acting classes she has been taking on the weekends pay off and put her on top.  If chosen, she’ll be a spokes-model of International proportion! 

Miss Parker spent a week shopping for just the right look for this day.  Poppy’s lovely green eyes and painted lashes are accentuated by lovely lilac and beige eye shadow.  Her lips are a soft coral.  She styled her lovely golden blond hair into a side parted flip.  It is a chic, yet young look.  The same could be said for her ensemble.  Her suit is in pale lilac brocade with a warm white fur trim collar.  It is topped off with a frosted raspberry flocked hat.  She accessorized her look with white gloves, white heels and her favorite "leather" handbag.  A lavender diamond bracelet and earrings complete this look of success.  "Lilac Frost" Poppy Parker uses the "Japan" skin tone.  Wish her luck
