Gilt-y Girl Gene Doll
"Guilty as charged, as long the crime in question is Gene stealing your heart in this lovely, three-piece, day ensemble. A tailored white, button front jacket with abbreviated waist and padded shoulders, sits atop a black and white gingham blouse lavishly embroidered in metallic gold and fitted to a T. A pencil-thin black skirt with flared hemline is the noir side of this early 40s look with it's sophisticated silhouette and dark connections to the gold embroidered, black and white gingham turban and black 'leather', platform pumps. The loot is 'diamond' earrings and enough 'gold' jewelry to thrill even a gun moll with multiple broaches and 'gold' cuff bracelets worth surrendering for. Gene's stylish coif is medium brunette and her makeup a look that says 'innocent'. What is it they say, 'white gloves, black heart' or maybe it's 'white gloves, heart of gold'? Either way, you'll have no trouble picking Gene out of the fashion lineup with Gilt-y Girl."
Retail Price is $125.00. Available January, 2009
Olympia Gene Doll
"A 1930s style evening gown composed of two complimentary shades of green satin; 'Olympia' is a masterpiece of dramatic cut and draping. A two-toned halter neckline is knotted at the throat and whittled through the torso into a slender waist. A fitted draping of the two greens at the hips echoes the neckline's details and accentuates the rhythms created by this reverent homage to the female form. Beneath this, a slender column is expanded into a lavish mermaid skirt featuring a voluminous train and 'yards' of draped satin. A tiered, crescent shaped wrap of satin and deep green-dyed 'fox' is the cover story for this fashion plate with matching closed-toed sandals and green satin, elbow-length gloves to complete the polished look. The gilding on this Oz lily consists of clear 'diamond' earrings, hair-clips and bracelet with a striking silver cuff. Gene's maquillage is a soft one and her hair a coppery red."
Retail Price $125.
The last three dolls are basic dolls. They are all priced at $99 and are available this month (December).
