Oh yeah! She arrived (way quicker than I anticipated!) and she has now bumped Best Drama out of the top spot of my favorite FR Monogram! She’s truly stunning! I think for those who didn’t want any of the Monograms so far, this may be the one that pushes them over the edge and down the dolly-spiral. Welcome to my world, LOL.
I personally didn’t notice from the previous pics that she had light strawberry blond hair! As you all know I’m a sucker for raven’s & redhead’s, so this was an added plus to this doll. This is the 1st Monogram with “loose” hair, which is the main reason I bought her. I wanted that variation in my collection. And when I ripped her from her box, the first thing I thought was…. Rita Hayworth….
As we already know, and has previously been stated in my earlier post, the fashion is a color variation replica of a Jason Wu design that was worn by Katie Holmes. This dress is cute, but I’m going to quickly be redressing her into a more retro look. The bodice has cute criss-cross beading and is a different blue than the bottom of the dress. The dress even has little side pockets which I love! Her ensemble comes with a skinny belt and cross strap heels, which I really am fond of! Plus she slipped right into them & I didn’t even have to unfasten them! And finally she comes with some big ‘ol dangly diamond earrings. Many have stated that they felt the eyemakeup was too “garish”, but I think it’s positively fantastic! I found a RC fashion that she should look stunning in, so hopefully that’ll arrive in the next few days….
But I will be redressing her tomorrow to see what she will blow me away in! And she came in the mail with the rest of my accessories I needed for my Monogram diorama! So tomorrow I will work on photographing them all together in their new “digs” – which is a fabulous Maryann Roy set! Until then, here are a few pics and as always there are more on my flickr page.
And a quick redress….
