I received the new “That Holiday Feeling” Poppy Parker a couple of days ago. Usually I get a shipping notice but not this time. It was a nice surprise. Here is her promo shot again

And here is the actual photo
The hairstyle is quite a bit different than the promo shots. The bangs needed some work to get them into a pleasing shape but a little bit of gel goes a long way to solve that dilemma. The rest of the hair while different is very pretty. Her face is sublime. Classic Poppy Parker. The dress came out of the box fairly wrinkled hence the tight in shot but that can be ironed to fix. The fabric of the gown is nice and the cape is adorable. I hope those lucky enough to win the chance to purchase get her in time to enjoy her over the holidays.
In other exciting fashion doll collector news recently, new Silkstone Barbie photos!!! Mattel shared information on two new Silkies to be released in 2015.

Hold the phone people!! If this price point is right… $59.00 is a steal!! I adore the little side chignon on this one. This one screams “gentleman caller” to me. She has to be from the south with an elegant hat like that.
Available April 2015
Suggested Retail: $110.00

Oh the Chanelness of it all!!! This one is a no brainer for me. I hope the actual production doll has a shorter bob haircut like this. She is going to look fabulous next to my Preferably Pink Silkstone. I am noticing that there are no earrings with either one of these Silkstones. I guess this is one way to alleviate the “green ear” issue. This girl desperately needs a pair of pearl earrings to complete the look. I mean come on…what fashionista is going to leave the house without earrings….not this one.
I did manage to take a few photos here recently that I have been waiting to share. Hope everyone is maintaining an even strength this holiday season. Recently the Integrity Toys WClub held another lottery for a much coveted Poppy Parker Doll. Her name is “That Holiday Feeling”
While her edition size was a whopping 800, it still wasn’t enough to satisfy demand for this popular brand. There were many left wanting a chance to buy this pretty lady. I was lucky enough to be picked this time around but I am sad about it because I wish ,à la Oprah, there were “Poppy’s for everyone!” It got me to thinking about all the fabulous Poppy’s that are already out there and I decided to do a holiday photo shoot with one of my recent favorites. I know it doesn’t bring “That Holiday Feeling” home to everyone but maybe it will bring a little bit of Holiday Poppy into your home.
Model: Especially for You Poppy Parker
And…because I was having fun with photoshop and I am sad to not be going to Paris any time soon….
** A special note of thanks to Ms. “H” for making this dress wearable on Poppy Parker
