Mixing vintage & contemporary

I'm trying out some various fashions and realizing that getting to know vintage Francie may not be the cheapest alternative for Poppy Parker clothing. The fashions are really adorable, however--very mod and colorful.

This is Youthquake Poppy Parker (Integrity Toys) redressed in Gold Rush (#1222), a vintage Francie fashion. Poppy is a little wider in the hips than Francie, but with some styles, like this empire waist dress, she can carry it off.

Her accessories include glasses and a purse by Barbie, and jewelry from Paparazzi Bait Adele.

You can see more photos on Flickr.


  1. Having seen Poppy in real life at doll club meetings, I am having a tough time seeing her in anything that does not look fabulous on her. This is a girl that might tempt me to collect SOME 1:6 scale girls again. However, the price tag, and how hard it is to find ravens are holding me back. So is the darned money situation.

  2. Especially the ravens. However--if you can get her in her basic form when she is first released, she is more affordable. ;)

    They are due for some brunette versions again soon! :)

  3. What a creative idea - I love the mixing of eras!
