Fire and Ice

Until this year, I avoided the Monogram line.  I only had four.  I had no intention of adding any more.  Then Integrity showed their IDEX line. 
Such a departure from anything Integrity Toys had done.  She was very intriguing.
She comes with nicest silver shoes.  They are a little big for her feet however.
The jewelry is wonderful.

An argument ensued about the inspiration for this ensemble.  Some believed it was based on an Alexander McQueen outfit:

Others believed the source of the inspiration was vintage Revlon Fire and Ice.

The doll being based on model Carmen Dell'Orefice.

Out of the box, I believe the doll represents a little of all three.
There was A LOT of product in this doll's hair.  It had to be washed out.

I guess I am a fan of big hair.  At least in this case.
Another amazing example of Integrity at its best.

The first time I've had a Monogram in my favorites list.  But this just isn't any Monogram.  #11 is Allure Monogram.

WHAT are you doing to me?! You know I sold this doll. I had my OOAK Carmen made from a FR2 Elise, and I love her. But with her hair washed out, this Monogram is pushed right over the TOP! Now I want her back!
