Dramatic Doll

As promised, here are a few of our favourite images from our recent shoot

The drama of it all inspired us to reach for this valuable resource and find a suitably sophisticated cocktail to match a Doll dripping with cinematic style...

We decided on the classic White Lady:

50 ml gin
large dash fresh lemon juice
dash triple sec
egg white

Mix all ingredients, shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Or, make it a Pink Lady by adding a dash of grenadine and an extra splash of gin. 

More pretty Doll pictures and cocktail inspiration to come soon. We must toast our talented shoot team--Photographer Callum Teggin http://www.calphotography.co.uk/, Model Molly Hallam and Hair and Make-up Artist Kari Rodnes http://www.karirodnes.com/. All are legendary Dolls for life.

What's a Doll to wear?

The Doll is practically overcome with anticipation of how fabulous our September/October shop is shaping up. We gathered up a few of our hottest looks and biggest statements for our Autumn/Winter 2012 photo shoot. Here's a little peek behind the scenes at the Doll's house...

Looks all in a row. In need of a Doll to bring them to life.

Accoutrements fit for a Doll. These collars make us very happy.

Dressing our very own Doll--it's our Broken Down Doll model and muse, Molly. 

Late night touch ups from Kari--our favourite hair and make-up artist, definitely a Doll. 

Whoa. This can't be right. 

But it is... It's so wrong that it's right. See what happens in this scary corridor when we post the results of our shoot later.

Summer Dolls

We've missed seeing our name in lights these past few months, so it is with much excitement that we announce that The Doll will be popping up again in September! 

We'll keep you posted as all of the details come together. In the meantime The Doll will be chasing sunnier climes in order to ensure the summer wardrobe gets maximum exposure. We'll make time to stop along the way and unearth more vintage treasures. We're thinking ahead--when we're not thinking of cocktails--and we already have some stunning pieces lined up for Autumn. 

But let's not get ahead of ourselves, there's still plenty of summer to enjoy and for the rest of it...

The Doll will mostly be wearing:

Power jewels. Because it can't hurt to try to outshine the sun. It might actually happen. 

The Doll will mostly be drinking:

Okay, more specifically we'll be drinking punch. Here's The Doll's Favourite Poolside Punch, already conveniently measured out for a high yield batch to please you and your thirsty friends:

500 ml dark rum
250 ml fresh lime juice
100 ml orgeat syrup
500 ml passion fruit juice
500 ml pineapple juice
100 ml Wray and Nephew overproof rum

Add all ingredients to a large punch bowl, throw in the lime husks, some sliced fresh strawberries and lots of ice. Gather round. It tastes like summer. 

The Doll will mostly be listening to:

New favourite band Helen and the Sirens gets top place on our summer soundtrack. 

You won't be able to get this dreamy rock hotness out of your head once it's in there. Even better, you won't want to get it out of your head.


The Doll also loves a feathered head-piece. 

And now to mix up another bowl of punch...The Doll will be back with more fabulousness soon.
