Summer Vacation Day 29

Integrity Toys had created a Platinum and a Raven version of A Fashionable Life Vanessa.  Being two of the most popular Fashion Royalty dolls ever produced, it was only a matter of time before we got a redhead (even though it took five years)!

In 2010, IT brought us our first "re-edition" with Flame Blue Vanessa Perrin.  She was released in an edition size of 300 (same as AFL Raven) and cost $150.  IT wanted to show collectors the value of being a W Club member, so Flame Blue Vanessa was offered through a lottery to the members of the club.
My best doll friend Reese was just getting into Fashion Royalty products and was not into "formal" looking dolls.  I begged her to enter the lottery for me so I would have more than one chance to win.  Unfortunately, luck wasn't with me; however, Reese's number was drawn.  I was elated.   Flame Blue Vanessa Perrin rounds out the AFL dolls - not twins, but triplets!
I love this Vanessa.  When IT does a re-edition, they really get it right!

I think she's my favorite of the 3, but that'd change instantly if they released a Brownette! :)
