LA Sybarite Event

O wow, I just saw the best doll giftset ever !!! Why do I sit in rainy Holland behind my computer and not in LA at the finale diner and dance party ;-) But I’m so happy that some of my dear friends are there.

The organization Drama Queen Productions are the BEST. For this convention they opened an Instagram account. So people like me who are sitting at home could follow this amazing convention.

And wow this convention had the best dolls and goodies ever !!!

It all started last Thursday. There was a cocktail at the upper deck from the Beverly Hilton Hotel with an amazing view over the city. the conventioneers got a cool backdrop and a fabulous set of high heels.

Silkstone

Today the house of Dior presented the Fall 2015 Couture collection. I love that they lifestream all the shows .These 3 looks were my favorite.

DiorFall2015

And this wasn’t the only Dior today. When I came home from work the postman delivered a package. A new doll and she is just perfection.

It’s a Victoire Roux, Avenue George V dressed in a gorgeous ooak dress by the designer Chris Stoeckel.

 unnamed-27

It’s a recreation of the famous “La Cigale” dress from the Christian Dior Fall/Winter 1952-53 collection.

Cigale1

Harper’s Bazaar (September 1952) described “La Cigale” as built in “gray moiré, so heavy it looks like a pliant metal,” while Vogue (September 1, 1952) called it “a masterpiece of construction and execution.”

I love the silhouette and the details are amazing.
