While leaving in New York her style is a mix of cute & casual, here she's wearing an outfit from "Sugar Mag" and brown loafer shoes, very preppy...
... in the Summer of 2002 a friend gave me a copy of Gina Garan's book "This Is Blythe" ... one look at her dolls and I was hooked, so in September I bought my very first Blythe: a "All Gold in One" and I named her BLEETHEUX.
My second doll was a "Bohemian Beats" and I named her HORTENSIA, an old-fashioned latin name which I just love, and up to now she is probably still my favorite girl!
Over the years I bought more dolls and I now have 14 Blythes: each one has been named, they have very defined personalities and they have traveled with me quite extensively, in their very stylish personalised wardrobes.
For quite sometime I have not paid much attention to my dolls, but now I'm again very attracted to them, so I've decided that I will post a different picture of one girl every day.

This is CECILE - girl number ten - a "French Trench" that I bought in the summer of 2004 from a Japanese toys' shop in the East Village in New York City, so I decided that she's a French exchange student. She's trained as a Chef in France, and now she's making very cute cup-cakes for a pastry shop in NY, but she's planning to go back to Paris to learn more cooking secrets from the Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute!
