Jason Wu and Colette: Ally of The Dolls

Now that he’s one of American fashion’s wunderkinder, Jason Wu’s early work as a designer of doll fashions is an oft-told part of his lore. But even now that he’s got a pretty enviable set of life-size women clamoring for his clothes, the miniature mode is not a part of his DNA that he’s ready to jettison. His latest fantastic bit of fashion-clad plastic marks the debut of his Fall 2009 collection at Colette in Paris, which hit the store this week. (”The early bird gets the worm,” said Wu. Indeed!) “Sarah [Lerfel] came in to put in an order and saw a doll on my desk, and it just went from there,” explains Wu. “It’s just so perfect for Colette.” For his limited-edition Colette doll, which sells for €215, Wu chose look 20: a belted ivory cashmere coat with a fairylike feather-embroidered hem. “Doing a doll is like drawing a caricature,” Wu explains. “You don’t render all the details, just the most distinctive ones. That’s why it has to be a fun look.” Wu’s dolly days are actually still quite active. He’s doing another for Jeffrey New York, due out this August to celebrate the store’s tenth anniversary. Also in the offing is Wu’s most expensive doll yet—a $1,000 mini-mannequin. “We’re doing it for Japan, but I can’t say more,” he says.

Dolls Do It Better: A Aaliyah tribute Vs Marisa

This is a special tribute to R&B singer and dancer Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001. Aaliyah had a few hits that include “Age Ain't Nothing But a Number”, “One in a Million” and “Rock the Boat”. Aaliyah’s styles was very Tomboy but still very girly at the same time. This picture is very cool and down to earth, that was the kind of person Aaliyah was.
Marisa is totally girly here and is not afaird to give it her all!What Marisa is wearing: Unknown top and 2008 Fashion Fever pants.

I'M COMING BACK.....................

I did not forget about any of you. I actually wrote a post back in July, but many things have happened that is completely out of my control. I found a job back in April and up until right now I've been working my butt off like crazy for six days a week and taking care of my mother. Let me just say, I think God for my job each day, but this has been the worst summer in my entire life. I'm hoping to get my six turn into five. My health and house are such a mess. The children are always crying out for me. I need to get my life back in check! Until then, please stay bless and cool. I'm praying for the fall to come fast!

Monster High: Cleo De Nile and Deuce Gorgon & What I think about the Monster Dolls

Here I am again with more photos of my new obsession Monster High dolls Cleo and Deuce. Being a person who was never into big headed dolls like Blythe (which are very cute) the Bratz, My Scene (even though I have a few), Liv dolls and Moxie girls this is really new for me! I think we all knew about these dolls for over a month now and I never thought I would become such a big fan. Mattel really has a hit on there hands and they don't need to mess this one up, HINT HINT FASHION FEVER! As I said on Monday's post you can watch Monster High on YouTube and there will be novels coming soon which I really can not wait for and maybe even a show on TV! This is really something to look forward to
