2017 Fashion Royalty Collection Revealed!!

©2017 Integrity Toys Inc. Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

Yep…you see it in the logo above, this years collection is about the woman.    As an added treat for collectors, Integrity Toys gave Jessy Ayala the drivers seat in this years FR collection.  The theme seems to have been set with the initial WClub offering earlier this year of Riviera Drama Agnes.  While Jessy may be taking the theme of bold colors and super chic from the Riviera, there are some definite detours.   He has taken the theme and used it to celebrate femininity…in it’s romantic iterations as well as it’s strength.  He ends with the power suit to end all power suits.  Let’s dive into the collection shall we?

Well bring on La Dolce Vita!  I am getting a very strong Dolce and Gabbana vibe with this one.  A perfect ensemble for relaxing on the Riviera.  Sadly we don’t have an image of the back of this blouse but it looks to be amazing too.    Adore the pink head scarf here.  Perfect touch with the dark hair.  She needed a glamorous pair of sunglasses to complete this look.  The facial screening is reminiscent of Going Public Eugenia and me loves!!  This is cool classic elegance.  Time for a chilled glass of prosecco on the patio overlooking the Mediterranean.

Ohhhh so chic!  I love that Jessy stuck with the rich Riviera colors here.  And come one…Jordan in these honey tresses?!!…YUM!  Jessy commented that he kept the facial screening soft and fresh on this one.  I love that he paired these emerald sandals with the softer blue, turqoise and green tones.  Adore the peach jewelry.  And…Jordan has a last name now too!

There is a Fendi feel to that purse Winking smile

I love the doll on this one…let me just put that out there.  Beautiful auburn hair on cream skin tone with soft facial screening and a Vanessa 3.0 sculpt.  What is not to love about that.  The outfit…well..it’s not my favorite..and not really getting a Riviera vibe either.  I adore the accessories.  The shirt with the bow detailing…love.  I am not sure I would pair it with the black lace skirt and I for sure would not throw an animal print wrap over the top of it.  This outfit was the weakest showing IMO of the entire line.  I like the components, just not together.  The sweatheart topstitch on the shirt gives it almost a western feel so not sure where that fits into this high glamour Riviera feel Jessy has going.

Holy flippin’ Zorro people!!  I believe I fainted when I saw this one…then recovered quickly and put this doll as #1 on my buy list.  What do I start with…That color on Adele…brilliant!!  The scarf with the hat…inspired!  The belted suit….sublime!!  The accessories…perfection!!  The facial screening…sultry and strong….LOVE!!  This was IMO the strongest look of this collection.  My only complaint is not sure how this fits in with a Riviera theme.  It’s definitely showcases strong and feminine but not necessarily Riviera chic.  Doesn’t change the fact that I am buying it though

Too much fashion

My poor, poor wallet!!!

But wait folks…there is more!  What collection is worth their salt without a lottery item.  Yes…another lottery.  I admit, kind of feeling the lottery fatigue with this one.

Oh my!!  A tanned Elyse!!  Again I hope the lottery Gods are kind.  There is a high edition size on this one so that’s at least comforting.  Now this lady is definitely on theme for the Riviera.  She just needs a Pucci scarf to tie around the swimsuit.  Love this duel bottom leg concept too.  Makes it very versatile.  Another point that I didn’t make in this or the previous blog post about Nu.Face was the fact that these bodies don’t have the waist joint so there is this very smooth waist on them and it allows to show off the midriff without that pesky joint.  Very nice. 

I am so happy to see the uber talents of Jessy Ayala displayed in not one but two different collections this year.  I feel his strongest showing was definitely in the Nu.Face line but the young man has some serious fashionista styling when it comes to the FR big hitters.  While the cohesiveness might not have been as strong in the FR line as Nu.Face it still packed a punch with some really stellar moments.  This collection’s Adele will be talked about for years and years.  I would also like to give Integrity Toys and it’s design team a big thumbs up for the improved diversity in this line.

So, as I have said before, if you are at all interested in these lovely’s, contact your IT authorized dealer sooner rather than later.


Reckless Smoke and Mirrors

No…I’m not doing a current political climate op-ed.  WClub members woke up to some much anticipated and exciting news.  The highly anticipated lottery for Trouble Eden was announced.   That alone would have people anxious and excited.

This was to be the final installment of the NU.Face™ Reckless collection….or so we thought.   Integrity Toys and the WClub kicked up the heat however with their lottery announcement by adding the mother of all ginsu cutting knife moments.

But Wait There’s  More!!

Many collectors were lamenting the fact that this Eden would be a lottery.  It appears that the WClub was listening because they offered up a consolation prize to beat all consolation prizes for lovers of the twins.  Yep…you guessed it, the WClub members were given the option to purchase ( purchase not another lottery!) a companion Lilith doll to this Eden…and she has left this collector with her jaw on the floor.

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.

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!


Victoire Roux–A New WClub Lottery

Integrity introduced a new character as part of their IT Direct Exclusive line at convention last year.  Her name is Victoire Roux and everything about her is what I like to collect.  In particular the clothing is all about the classic lines of the 1940’s and 50’s.   This lovely Ms. Victoire will be offered up via lottery and based on the feedback from the boards, many are entering for the chance to buy.  I don’t even think I had to think about this one….my hands were on the keys to enter this lottery before I even finished reading the email from the WClub.   Ohhhh how I hope I win the chance to purchase this lovely lady.  If not, I will be begging….oh yes….I will be begging.

Giselle is a Glam Addict

I was so excited to win the opportunity to buy this lovely, lovely lady.  She really has exceeded my expectations in every way.  I love the sleek hairstyle, pale skin tone, red lips with the raven black hair and green eyes.  Absolutely gorgeous.  The black and white print sheath fits well and I like it paired with the red accent belt.  The set comes with three pairs of shoes, an extra belt, two purses, fur stole, jewelry set and hat. 

The black shoes are a bit big for her feet but I made them work for the photos.  I have yet to try the red or the pink shoes on but look forward to trying those out.  I love the hammered silver bracelet.  It is exactly like Luminous Kyori’s but in silver tone instead of gold.  The pink/black and cream toned purse is TO DIE FOR.

W Club Giselle Exclusive!

Wow!  Integrity Toys is really pulling out all the stops this year.  I have been a W Club member for the last four years and have never seen so many amazing things coming from Integrity this early in the year.  We received a plethora of information on new dolls from IDEX a few short weeks ago and now the W Club members have the chance to win the opportunity to buy a limited exclusive raven haired Giselle.  She has a hat…so that means I want her LOL!  To be honest…I know there are a few devoted Giselle face mold collectors out there and I really hope you guys get her first…that is only fair.  If this lady were a Poppy, FR2 or a Monogram…I know you all would wish the same for me.

This is  being called a “European Exclusive” and is going through LaureBelle Couture(http://www.laurebellecouture.com/)…. but don’t try to contact them to get this exclusive…it’s lottery only…through the W Club.   Not quite sure why it is being touted as a “European Exclusive” .  To me this looks just like a W Club lottery .  The doll is beautiful and she comes with a variety of shoes and accessories.  This gets her labeled as a  “Giftset”.

Come home to Mama…..

When I attended the Fashion Royalty convention in October this year, they previewed a doll that was going to be available later in the year by lottery to interested WClub members.  It was a beautiful blonde doll with the old Veronique facemold on a FR2 body wearing an amazing purple gown with accessories and a fabulous updo.  The lottery was held Monday the 19th and I am happy to report that I won the right to purchase one of these beauties.  I hate lotteries because I never seem to win any and I am glad that everyone who entered the lottery seemed to have won the right to purchase.  I am hoping she will be shipping soon!!

Renegade Dasha is in the House!

I did not win the right to purchase this lovely lady in the lottery but thanks to a fellow collector and a fabulous trade, Renegade Dasha is in the house!  I really love the styling of this particular FR Squared Dasha.  She is very sophisticated and sleek.  Yes, the half bun half ponytail hairstyle is a bit of a mystery but it is fairly easy to work around.  I really like the blond hair, pale skin and red, red lips.  She seemed to me like she needed a sleek and sophisticated backdrop so I imagined her at a swanky wine bar with a lovely merlot.  We live in wine country  so I will use wine many times for my props.
