The 1950s saw drastic changes as young adults strove to break free of the previous, more conservative era. Everything from hip and cool to full-on glamour was embraced not only by movie stars and singers, but by everyone in general and so reflected in new fashion, dance, and hair trends. Meet Olivia, the average everyday girl next door, who is contagiously sweet, kind and feminine and loves to dance the night away. She sure knows how to have a blast while rocking her saddle shoes around the clock and spinning her voluminous poodle skirt vibrantly to the music’s rhythm.
“My early teens and the 1950’s connect in many ways by bringing back memories of long lasting friendship, endless dancing, as well as the love for my Standard Poodles who’ve been a part of my life since the day I was born.”
Handmade with much love and attention to detail, Olivia’s facial features are completely hand embroidered. Her mint hair is made of yarn that has been hand braided and stitched into place. She wears a hand tailored dress, consisting of a gold sequined top and a pink tulle skirt sewn to the doll’s body, therefore not removable. She comes along wearing sewn undies and even has a hand embroidered belly button!
