Soooooo… I LIKE HER! Which is kind of weird, considering that pastels are not my forte. Or the Blair twins in general. But the styling is great here. My first reaction seeing the photos was “Versace!”. It brought to mind many things from various periods, but mostly the Spring 1992 collection,
It was one of his most successful and popular collections, one that Donatella mines to death in her latest releases. It’s iconic for the brand and it has been copied by everyone. The shoes are more recent though, even if inspired by older designs: Fall 2018, in various colours. I bet they will be hell to put on the doll.
Makis correctly commented that the bows pop in the real dress, while they are part of the structure in the doll version. I’m guessing cost is the main reason for the difference. Plus the doll dress has pockets!
For a more Rococo style, I’d rather have some ringlets added to her hairstyle, on the sides and the back. Which I guess can be done to the existing hair. She’ll be a modern French court lady at Versailles!
Did you notice that her SKU number has the letter A at the end? That means there’s a variation with her twin, Lilith, coming soon. Will it be a lottery? Part of Dolly Days? I’m guessing we will discover it soon enough.
