The Metropolitan Museum

I thought I would show you another book title on my “Must Get Soon” list, this time from the Metropolitan Museum.

With beautiful photographs and paintings of not only jewelry but also close up of gowns, this book is perfect for learning and examining details.  Here is the link to the shop:

There are so many books and items to browse through…have fun!

I also wanted to show you several pictures from their Fashion Doll collection.  While this collection is no longer on exhibit, all the dolls were created by various designers in 1949,  who picked certain years to create their looks.  Simply stunning!  While one could debate the entire accuracy of several of the gowns, I think they are just beautiful!  I wanted to try to find a book that featured all the dolls, but couldn’t.  If anyone sees or knows where to find one, please let me know!

Here is the link to the list of the dolls, along with a few pictures of my favorites:

I hope you are able to take some time to look at these amazing creations!

Enjoy!
