Dial V for Victoire....deboxed

This doll was just recently deboxed. I purchased her and Simonette, a new Victoire character in the line at the 2014 convention last year and have been saving them for a special time to debox and Wednesday which was an extremely stressful day for me, seemed the perfect day. I did a small photo shoot as it has been in my mind for some time to make her into a jewel thief ever since I saw her outfit. 
She comes with an extra pair of pumps, little half boots, silk scarf belt, scarf hood, and a fitted skirt and black fitted pants and turtleneck. It is quite chic and very late fifties /early sixties. Sort of the little outfit you would have took for a weekend back then, and saw Lana Turner or Audrey Hepburn gadding about in or sitting about crosslegged on cushions by the fireplace with cigarette holder and a martini glass in the other. 

Here she is...looking dark and mysterious...







The sets in the window are the mini MiWorld sets from ToysRUs and the lamp is from the Dollar Tree. the table is an acrylic riser I picked up from somewhere and makes a great store table. The necklace on the mannequin is part of the jewelry that came with Victoire and looks wonderful on her outfit, she also came with a cuff bracelet and earrings that match. I must take some better photos of her that are from the front as she has a lovely face. This will be the third red headed Victoire in my collection now. 

Hoping to finish the Easter displays this weekend ! Lisa

She's beautiful! Her outfit is really reminiscent of early 60's fashions, so cool!
I love the idea that she's a jewel thief!

Yes, that outfit so reminds me of Catwoman. Do you remember that tv series from the 90's that was a spinoff of the Highlander, the Raven? Only it was a woman who was an immortal? It was so cool it only lasted one season. I loved it. I have been trying to figure out the first scene , to start off with the murder, then go backwards...that might be more interesting.

She looks divine! I like your display as well. I picked up some of those lamps but haven't done anything with them yet.
