This week we’re going to take a look at another lot of Fashion Avenue outfits from Naomi’s stash. I didn’t have any of these outfits myself so I had to take them out of their packaging. I experienced a slight pang of guilt about doing this thinking how much Naomi could have got for them on eBay as Mint on Card outfits.
Four of these outfits are from a set called “Cool and Casual”dated 2001 on the packaging while the other two are on the dress shaped cards issued for foreign markets in 2002.
Jan is the Showrunner today. Vivienne is away on business and Becky is away for the weekend with Sebastian so Jan was asked to come in. As these are brand new, never worn before outfits Jan is being extremely careful with them. She has not forgotten the Zebra Closet Incident so although the sun is shining outside she does not even suggest heading out to the park.
- Alison – P.A. to a local business man , Twist & Turn body
- Sal – A newcomer to town, non articulated Fashionista body
- Marissa – Girl about town, articulated Fashionista
- Jan – House Stylist and former professional model, Model Muse body
Two of the models today are relative newcomers while Marissa is an old hand at it as is Jan of course.
Jan leads the way in the red pants which are a vinyl material and the Eiffel Tower motif tee-shirt. She likes these but not the enormous chunky black boots. Jan says if she bought this outfit the first thing she would do would be to buy better shoes, probably red with heels.
Alison comes next wearing pink vinyl pants and a mauve midriff top. Although Alison has the older style body as most Dolls of the World dolls do the waist is a little loose.
Marissa follows wearing jeans, a striped top and a scarf all of which fit her perfectly.
Next, newcomer Sally appears in a denim mid length skirt and a pink Barbie print shirt.
The girls stopped for a group portrait before going on to model the last two outfits.
Jan suggests that Sal model one of the remaining outfits. Marissa volunteers to wear the other one.
Sally’s outfit is a shiny silver skirt and pale pink jacket with a fur collar and matching pink boots. Sally likes the way the jacket catches the light.
Marissa’s outfit is a blue denim skirt and dark blue vinyl jacket with matching blue vinyl boots.
The photo shoot is finished ahead of schedule and amazingly nothing has gone wrong. No clothes have been damaged, no shoes have been lost and everyone is still in a good mood even the photographer. “We have some time left.” Jan tells the girls. “Is there anything that you would like to try on before we pack up?”
“Why don’t we do some mix and match?” asks Marissa
“Wonderful idea.” Jan says enthusiastically. So everyone grabs pieces from each outfit to try on and be photographed in. Here are the results.
The whole afternoon was a great success and Jan was quite impressed with her new models and also by the fact that Marissa did not prank anyone.
