Summer Vacation Day 4

I remember receiving this doll.  It was in the summer of 2008.  It had been a long time since I had been so excited about a doll.  I tore her from her box and took her outside for photos.   Going Public Eugenia Frost was the doll that forever cemented my love relationship with Ms. Frost.   She was a W Club Exclusive and sold $120.  Her edition size was 1330 which is the largest edition size of any Fashion Royalty doll ever.   Even with this edition size, Going Public Eugenia Frost is rare to find on the secondary market and demands a premium price.

I dressed her in Adele Makeda's 2012 Main Attitude blouse and skirt.  Going Public Eugenia Frost has one of the most beautiful face-ups ever.  Her tan and golden mane aren't hurting the effect any.

Summer Vacation Day 5

I've only been to one doll convention ever - the 2012 Integrity Tropicalia Convention in Orlando, FL.  When IT announced that they would be returning to Orlando this year, I was all set and ready to go.  This is one of those cases when life gets in the way.  My husband and I were visiting Abingdon, VA this past summer.  I wanted to show him one of my favorite places from where I grew up.  He fell in love with the town and surrounding mountains.   We are trying to save up some money to purchase land on which to build our retirement home!   It's very exciting, but it causes a tight budget!  Therefore, no 2014 Integrity Convention.

If I had to choose my favorite doll from the 2012 Convention, Main Event Adele Makeda is close to the very top.  She was released in an edition size of 425 and cost $125.

When I was redressing her, I started thinking about the song Lady Marmalade and Lil Kim.  Do you see it?
