Still dreaming of spring here in the dreary rain filled days of a Pacific Northwest winter. I have already shown some fun more casual fashions. Today I’m going full on couture with two fashions and models that brought Spring into the studio for a swoon worthy day of pastels.
Model: Making an Entrance Karolin Stone from Integrity Toys ( Her hair has been changed)
Suit and hat: HOANGANHKHOI on Etsy
Shoes: Integrity Toys
Jewelry: Integrity Toys
The construction of this gorgeous creation is incredible. Beautifully tailored and sewn! The beading!! I Die!!
Next up is a pink confection from my bestie Miss Hilda of Bellissima Couture
Model and Jewelry: Pink Powder Puff Poppy Parker from Integrity Toys
Gown: Bellissima Couture
Shoes: Paul Zhangby on Ebay
Nobody does these silk and lace creations like Hilda! Nobody! The perfect confection for this pink Poppy.
And…because I am all about botanicals right now…had to do this!
Looking forward to Spring!!
Integrity Toys just announced another goodie for collectors! As I have explained in previous blog posts, for the past couple of Integrity Toys conventions the advanced design competition winner gets to have their design produced by IT. It’s a really nice perk and what an incentive for the incredibly talented pool of IT collectors. This past year the advanced design competition was won by Salvador Lopez Arriaga.
Here are some images I took of his design entry at the convention:
Congratulations Salvador!! You made Karolin look stunning and many collectors are looking forward to adding your amazing work to their collection. Here is the finished Integrity Toys production doll.

You have to give Integrity Toys an A+ for staying true to the original design. They faithfully reproduced it down to the doll Mr. Arriaga used! Feel free to follow Salvador on his Instagram account as he continues to share his design projects. I have followed him for over a year now and he never fails to inspire and amaze.
OK…so what do you need to know to order this doll? 1) If you are WClub member, use the link in the email that was sent to you by noon ET September 19, 2017 . 2) If you are not a WClub member, I am assuming this lovely will be available in their shop at The Integrity Toys website after September 19th. At the time of this posting, they have not given specific information other than it will be available to the general public. That could mean IT direct or through their dealers. I will post more information when I have it.
