Michelle and Jason sitting in a tree....
Obviously I am a big Jason Wu fan...and a big Michella Obama fan. And together they are like peanut butter in my chocolate. Once again, I think he has designed a stunner of a dress for her. As a tall girl with hips myself...I really appreciate Jason Wu's ability to design for women with curves. Majestic...is the best word for it. And...this dress would look great on Wonder Woman.
I also love the bangs.
Actually the First Lady would make a swell Amazon.
After what felt like a torturous wait time, we finally see the 2018 Upgrade dolls for the W Club! Integrity has informed us that they have changed the way the shopping cart works which will most directly impact overseas members who would combine shipping between several members in order to save money overall. Now members who want to continue this practice have to form a 'club gang' with a main ring leader running the gang account and putting in all the orders. I don't envy them and this new obstacle for collecting but I do understand the logistical nightmare that the prior ordering methods caused for IT and club liaisons. The new cart system will also make 'takeovers' trickier. I think this might be a good thing. I am hoping it will make everyone (including me) be more thoughtful when ordering exclusives and entering in lotteries. ***Only order what you love people!*** Takeovers will still be possible but will require the original buyer to complete the sale and t…
Well, it's almost April and my dolly resolve is crumbling a bit. Integrity just surprised us with a capsule collection of Fashion Royalty Ladies rocking lingerie. Designed by Jessy Ayala, three dolls are available from dealers and two as lottery exclusives. The "close-up" dolls retail for $125 and have really low edition sizes. Most are likely sold out from dealers...but one might try couture dolls as they often list things later. The holiday weekend might also mess with ordering too...so have faith and maybe you will find one. I managed to resist all but one: Dasha. I currently only have the Anika version of Dasha (whom I love dearly) and this new version is winning it for me. I think people are considering homicide in order to get a chance at lottery Vamp Agnes.

I've yet to warm up to the Isha 1.0 sculpt. The lingerie gorgeous though. Pretty hair color too. Item # 91434 Just a Tease Mademoiselle Jolie™ Close-up Doll Fashion Royalty®: The Boudoir…
I can't be the only one experiencing some Poppy fatigue this year. I believe we are currently at 20 dolls (and counting) revealed so far in 2017. Oye. Now lucky for me, I have only bought a few for the clothing and sent them on their nekkid merry little way. I think only the ash blonde Style Lab convention poppy has remained in my house (Rainbow has not left her box yet...still haven't decided on her) and the British Invasion will stick around too. I skipped the latest Christmas (but not in time for Christmas) Golden Holdiday Poppy club doll and was feeling pretty confident in my willpower to ignore this second round. But of course, the latest offering is killer once again. I'm a monkey on crack.
