Playing Around

In my last post, I showed my readers the beautiful OOAK ensemble I got for Christmas from Dagamoart.  There are some truly amazing doll couturiers in our community.  I had recently purchased some other fashions and thought I would share them.

The first fashion was purchased on e-bay.  The items are sold under the title "Ann Collection" with the seller ID "anders6417".   This designer is named Anna Lipka.  E-bay lists the location as "default-Sweden", but I think the package was actually mailed from Poland. 

The model is Fame by Frame Imogen.  She has quickly become a favorite around here.  I haven't been able to find an outfit she cannot wear.  She looks good in everything.  This dress came with the red belt.  It cost $16 + $6 shipping.  What a deal!

The next outfit is from Bogue's Vogue.  I have been trolling his website for months.  His items sell fast, and you can see why.  Many of his ensembles are designed more for the Silkstone body, but fit comfortably on the Monogram and Nuface girls.

The model this time is Spring Forward Eugenia.  I had changed her head to a NuFace body when she arrived.  She looks so young and wonderful.  I wanted her to have a more modelesque form.  I think she is gorgeous.  His items usually run about $60 - $90 plus shipping.

I bought several Clean Lan items this past fall (or let's say that Ndey and Chaundra went on a spending spree with my credit card).  One item that was purchased was a sundress for Model Muse/DG bodies.  I used it as a skirt and paired it with the blouse from the Power Game Natalia Suit.

My model this time is Main Event Adele from the convention.  I had forgotten how beautiful this doll really is.  I think she suffered from a serious wardrobe mistake.  When put in a better ensemble, she is powerful.  This skirt was less than $20.  Most of her items are very affordable!

I actually took the skirt from Adele's outfit and paired it with the blouse from Current Pursuits Vanessa and put it on Haute Societe Veronique.   She has been standing around nude for several weeks now.

Which brings me to Randall Craig outfits.  This one is called Citrus Sleek. It is several years old but is one of my favorites.  It took me a very long time to find the right model for it.

Fete Accompli had been on my holy grail list for a couple years.  I finally found one nude for a great price.  I had to fix the eyelashes but with patience, a dental brush, and a pin she is now perfect.  This outfit was originally $52.  Most of his outfits currently sell for $50+.   They are very well constructed and are produced in limited quantities.

This is a very small sampling of some of what is available to collectors.  I hope to include other designers in future blogs, as I add more beautiful clothes to my doll's wardrobes.  I did not intentionally leave out  designer Stephen Frasier of Dressmaker Details.  I have many of his outfits, but do not have one currently on a doll.  I promise to include him in the next blog!

I hope you enjoyed this mini-fashion show!
