Making a Rare Appearance Dania

WClubbers waited an exorbitant 6 months for this one.  Yep, I checked the numbers…first deposit went in on this baby around December 3rd of 2014.  Was she worth the wait?  I honestly have to say…YES.  The promo shots on this doll had expectations levels extremely high so I was very skeptical on whether it would deliver.  I am happy to say Rare Appearance Dania delivers and then some.  This lady exudes chic upscale class.

I will say it again…this is one classy lady.  She comes with a pair of grey gloved hands which I adore.  Here jewelry is simple, classic and understated.  The handbag and shoes are TO DIE FOR.

I had WAY too much fun shooting this one.

Ombres Poétique

There was a new arrival this week at ITFDS.

This gown is so much frothy yumminess that I can barely contain myself as I type this.  All that tulle!!!  Love the lace too.  The necklace on this beautiful lady is a new design for IT and it appears to be strung on some kind of stretchy filament rather than string.  We will see if it holds up better than the plain string. The hair bump was overdone a few years back at IT but it is subtle on this one and works very well.  The hair color is a beautiful platinum blonde.

That Holiday Feeling

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”

That Holiday Feeling 1

That Holiday Feeling 4

That Holiday Feeling 5

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

Gown:  Go Red For Women Barbie® Doll

I am not feeling the dress.  It’s different but it feels kind of clumpy on her.  Also, I am a lover of updo’s…you all know this…but I am feeling a little “updo fatigue” with this one.  Her face is beautiful and I love the raven hair.  I am not sold on the lip color yet but I think it is workable.  I really like the jewelry.  Has anyone “easily” gotten that hair comb thingy to work yet?  If so share how you did it.  Enquiring minds would love to know.   I am still going to order but I think she will be redressed fairly quickly.

WClub members have until Monday,April 14th at noon EST to order.

What can I say…I am a sucker for the monograms.  Even though Integrity has retired this line, it is great to see them pop up in another iteration from time to time.  Thank you Integrity Toys!


A Wonderful Evening

Evening in Montreal Victoire has arrived and she is a stunner!  I knew I was going to love this lady by her promo shots.  The actual doll does not disappoint.  I shared some quick shots of this lady on my Flickr account but managed to take some better shots yesterday in the sunshine.

I adore this magnetic pin!  It makes it sooo much easier to place AND no chance that it will leave a hole in delicate fabric.  Smart choice Integrity!


Evening in Montreal Victoire

I have to admit, I am a bit behind on reporting Integrity Toys(IT) news for the first part of this year.   A few weeks ago, The WClub announced a new IT direct lottery for the popular character Victoire Roux.

The Lottery was held today and I believe most all who wanted a chance to purchase her in the WClub were able to get her.  It is really nice when that happens.  It means IT is accurately gauging the demand of a product and providing an adequate supply.  Everybody walks away happy.  When I first saw this lady, I thought “ Oh man….not another black cocktail gown!.”  She is ,in fact, wearing chocolate brown.  That makes her more interesting.  Mostly, however, I like the facial screening with the platinum updo.  I was hoping to win the chance to purchase and am a happy camper with my fellow WClub members who  are all celebrating our chance to purchase her.  She is due to hit peoples doorsteps as early as next week.  Smile
