Not Normally My Cup of Tea...

MFD Exclusive
Exquisite Monogram doll
by Integrity Toys

She's one of those super sassy looking FR dolls that wouldn't normally grace my collection.  I got her as a bonus from hoarding dolls aplenty from my doll dealer in 2011.  In fact when I say dolls aplenty, I mean dolls aplenty that I haven't yet quite caught up in opening some of the dolls I've gotten that year.

I'm going through the doll boxes super slowly and finally got to the Exquisite Monogram the other week.  Surprisingly delighted by what I released from a doll box prison, she is as her namesake says, exquisite.

I'm a huge fan of her gold embroidered gown.  And the color of the skirt is such a beautiful intense  shade of blue.  Not sure I'm loving the blonde though.  I feel like she's all skirt and no face, despite the big bulbs of flowers on her head.  The doll itself is getting lost on the gold and blue of her dress whereas darker hair color might have made her stand out a bit.  I think black hair on this doll would have made her slightly more exotic too.
