Today is very snowy outside and cold, brrrrrr, so I stayed home and thought I’d post to the blog. I have three 1968 fringe girls that have made their way to Sasha Shangri-La in the last few years.
The first fringe girl is the lovely Faith. She is wearing a pretty dress with pinny along with her socks and shoes all from Ruthsdolls. I love Faith’s vivid blue eyes and her fringe has blended with her hair over time. I have not tried to tease it out because I like it this way for now. Faith was my first fringe girl and was made in early 1968. I love her expression which is unforgettable to me.
The second fringe girl is Fara and she is different than Faith. Her eyes are smaller and her hair styling is wonderful with nice fringe. Also, her hair is full and bouncy and is cut in different layers. Fara is wearing a pretty smocked dress made by Ruthsdolls and pink suede shoes by Jean Jensen (JJ). I love Fara’s sweet expression.
Last, but not least, is Faye who came to Sasha Shangri-La in September 2013 and so she is a newcomer. Faye’s eyes are delicate and beautiful. She has multi-stroke brows and I can imagine the artist used a very fine brush when painting her eyes. Faye has nice fringe and her hair is not as full as Fara’s but it is full enough. Faye is wearing a pretty smocked apple dress by Molly. It has wonderful crocheted trimming on the cuffs and even on the hem of her pants (she is too shy to show them ;). Her bone colored, leather shoes are from Cassie at Sashapotamus and they fit perfectly. Faye has a beautiful, sophisticated expression.
The fringe girls with their teddy bears and Baby Ginger with her sock monkey. Baby wears a darling smocked dress made by Diane and it has a charming, playful scene. This dress was a nice surprise in a back-to-school swap held by Lorraine last Fall. Baby Ginger’s sock monkey was a Christmas gift from her Mommy and she wrapped her monkey in the wrapping ribbon and reindeer pin as a loving keepsake.
