|We have all been to Anthropologie.|
|Clockwise from top left: Pippa/Pilar, Adele, Kyla, Kayley.|
Careful observers will remember that sofa used to be pink.
Since I got wallpaper onto the dividing walls in the 1:18 condos today, we're going to take a brief pair of home tours before getting back to the important business of fashion doll outfits. (This is the "hey, I've accomplished things!" post. Not that I've actually finished most things.)
|Do you think we should also paper the fireplace wall, Adele? It's kind of dark in here.|
The floor of Adele and Pilar's condo is a roll of shelf padding from Dollar Tree. It gives the sort of glam Goth-by-way-of-Mexico feel I was aiming for. It also has enough squishiness that the walls are more apt to stand up.
|I wonder if Pilar is making homemade dog treats.|
|Feathers go with everything.|
|Nothing says "glam" like leopard.|
Kyla and Kayley also have a condo. This one is straight out of the earnest Bicentennial period of the 1970s, right down to the Armstrong vinyl floors (actually cut from Walmart placemats I'd originally bought for a dollhouse roof).
|Every bedroom needs a spinning wheel for those middle-of-the-night yarn emergencies.|
|Cat among the pigeons. Well, ducks. Cat among the ducks.|
|I could jump on that counter from here. I could.|
|I wonder if we could stick a TV in the fireplace.|
Now back to our usual programming. D'Laura and Briony apparently been to both Abercrombie & Fitch and Anthropologie, making for a bit of a style dysjunction between their sock dresses and winter coats.
|Shopping is exhausting.|
Meygan also finally got her sock dress and matching sweater. She clearly buys from the same designer as Miss Hanzo.
|Stripes and polka dots DO go together.|
|Walk like an Egyptian...|
The dress really needs straps -- but I have no thin black ribbon. Cleo would really like a coat, but I don't have felt or super-suede in the right color (which doesn't seem possible -- if there were felt in infrared and ultraviolet, I'd have it by now). My trips to assorted sources of fabric are on a hyperbolic path toward infinity. Eventually, I will oscillate between my normal locations and fabric stores so quickly as to be imperceptible other than a faint, high-pitched whine.
Cleo's current hair style is the result of my pulling it out of the way so I could fit the back of her dress, and at some point, I was punchy enough to decide to roll with it as a "look."
|You laugh now, but wait until next month's Vogue comes out.|
|People will be in awe of my two-step when I wear this vest.|
I was hoping to start on dresses for the Minions (Rei and Ami), but when I went to put my new ironing board cover on the ironing board, I discovered that I'd bought a cover for a portable countertop-sized ironing board. I'm leaning toward thinking this is a sign that I should own a portable, countertop-sized ironing board, instead of hauling the big one out for tiny sewing projects. It's not like I don't need to go to a place that will carry them... But that's a project for another day, as I'm not going to Walmart after dark in a windstorm.
