Recently I have been totally loving on my brunette girls Agnes (Lorshek Molseh) and my dark-locked Kenner Raven. I received a new hat from from Momo Penguinbaby which was this gorgeous knitted thing with built-in earmuffs and a tiny shroom on top, as well as a new dress from the Pumpkinbelle. So why not have the chocolate-haired girls model?
I probably should have switched it around and had Raven model the Pumpkinbelle dress instead… but I couldn’t resist. Let’s just say this 40 year old beauty wasn’t particularly impressed that I put a tiny shroom on her head and woollen Princess-Leia-esque muffs on her ears. I could almost feel the disdain through her green eyes.
I love this hat. It’s knitted using a stormy grey yarn with metallic specs of gold and a ocean blue. It has a tiny knitted toadstool ala Super Mario perched upon the top. Momo does absolutely lovely hats, and they sell out super quick.
I reckon she looks adorable. She’s probably less happy about it. Raven probably reckons she deserves a flower-power dress of awesome, and continually questions my fashion sense filled with fluffy things and shrooms. But… seriously, she’s completely rocking her black and white Petite CreAyations dress though. On a side note. I LOVE the CreAyations dress. If you ever want one, just contact Ewa directly through her shop and pick the colours you would like for the outfits.
Raven was probably brimming with jealousy, because I gave Agnes this absolutely stunning Pumpkinbelle dress. Pumpkinbelle releases her dresses once every few months in small batches and at rotating times so its more convenient for people all over the world. The dresses are super popular, and sell out very quickly. In a panic last time, I grabbed whichever dress I could – and I was completely enamoured when it came.
Look how fab Agnes looks in it! Agnes is one of the few girls I’ve managed to restrain and keep completely stock (and isn’t translucent). I’m not sure why. I just think she’s gorgeous. The dress has a creamy beige top printed with tiny blue leaves and flowers. Theres a tiny amount of lace for a bib detail, and tiny beaded black buttons. She wears a satin bow, and the hip of her dress features two blue tiny buttons.
The skirt is a dusty pink silk that has been tea dyed. I’m completely over the moon with how high quality the fabrics are!
The base of her dress features a periwinkle blue lace trimming, and embroidered patterning. It’s a stunning dress that I really only appreciated the craftsmanship when I looked closely at it. The stitching is impeccable, and there is so much skill involved! What really amazes me is that almost all of the Pumpkinbelle dresses were unique. On that re-stock day, every dress was slightly different with changing colours, styles, fabrics. It’s lovely to think each one is unique in it’s own special way. I hope I am lucky enough to find a few more in the future!
I’m still learning which styles I like to dress my girls in! Recently, I’ve also picked up some pre-loved hats from Poppy Tree Lane featuring a crying and happy cloud. I’ll have to show you guys soon. The clouds are sitting on my pair of Forty Winks.
Some super dolly news as well – after about 3 weeks of waiting (and 5 weeks since winning the auction), the warehouse in Japan has finally located my My Melody Blythe. She’s finally on her way. It’s an awesome way to end the week! This weekend for me is finishing off two commissions and hopefully some glorious sun. What’s in it for the weekend for you?
