My first thought was…”I’m not totally lovin’ it”  I love the hairstyle and the fact that she is a redhead.  I am not sure of the facial screening yet.  I think my main problem is the  thin eyebrows ( totally agree with you there Hilda!).  Did she over pluck them?  I’m thinking…yes.  However, now that I think about it, it is definitely more high fashion 1950’s ( think Dovima, enough said).    Moving on from the eyebrows, I LOVE the coat, hat and little martini glass.  I am not loving the massive amounts of ruffles on the dress.  It looks like she might be wearing one(or possibly two…I lost count) cocktail waitress apron(s) too many.  That being said, I am still ordering her.  I see potential.  I also see inspiration from 1950’s Dior…what’s not to like about that?!
