Reverence for the Repaint

I can do many things when it comes to doll collecting.  I cannot do what Jon Copeland does.  I can’t even contemplate it.  I can, however, observe, enjoy and photograph it.

For those who are interested, she was originally a Mila™ Barbie® Doll.


Preferably Pink for early Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi

Preferably pink refers to the doll in this photo but it really could be the gown as well.  This was perhaps my favorite Bogue’s Vogues purchase of the year though choosing a favorite Bogue’s Vogue is like choosing my favorite child between my two kids….impossible.  This delicious pink cotton pique number with rolled black velvet collar is paired with a black velvet hat with netting bow.  TO DIE FOR!  Once again Mr Bogue…that hat is off to you.  Ms. Preferably Pink has had her hair restyled at the salon de Berry.

Beautiful Beaux–Part Deux

I felt the need to photograph the new Fashion Royalty convention exclusive by Dressmaker Details on a Silkstone.  I also wanted to photograph the adorable dress beneath the shrug….my previous photos really didn’t show off that.  Also, the gloves are leather-like and fit really, really well on a silkie.  LOVE them!  I am  starting to pull out the holiday stuff for photos so be prepared….Christmas trees will show up randomly from now through January LOL!  I am also looking forward to photographing the Fashion Royalty Convention collection when it arrives ( taps foot impatiently while waiting Winking smile).  Oh and not to mention…but I will definitely mention…I have a couple of new hats by the talented Allyrenee to showcase in some upcoming photos.
