The theme this year is a trip to Paris, and these outfits were apparently what designer David Buttry imagined Poppy wore at various times during her Paris stay. Love that. Very creative!
Anyway, I'm a big fan of beautifully-tailored suits (both on dolls AND on people), so I had to get this one. The doll looks like she'll have several nice mix-and-match pieces, because she has on a navy blue "shell"-type top on underneath the pink suit jacket. The bow at the neck is actually a separate scarf, not connected to the blouse. I love the hat, too. The MegaPoppys always come with the best hats.
And I'm SO GLAD there is another brown-eyed 16" Poppy, because up until now, there has only ever been ONE brown-eyed 16" Poppy, and that was Love Letters from a couple years ago.
I do like her face as well, though. I don't normally dig bright blue eyeshadow on dolls, but it looked so good on last year's Winter Wowzers that I have high hopes it will look great on Ma Cherie as well.
I would have loved this Poppy gown in a bronze-brown, especially if the doll had had brown eyes, too. I never loved coral, anyway (or chartreusse, either). She's pretty, though, and I don't have a 16" Poppy with that hair color yet. I'm not really sure if I'm going to get this one or not. We'll see.
