Woke up and jumped out to check the new Tonner Racehorses.
Clicked on site. Hoped they got it right.
Not jumping up and down. Ended up with a frown.
Not a good photo. Not enough seen on the site.
Tonner seems to be rushing.
And no one seems to be racing.
Lacking in draping.
Lacking the skirt fall.
Lacking in this and that and in over-all
Veil seems to dark. Factory paint is still very stark
Coral Brooch seems not too coral
Pricing seems good though. That's all.
Pardon the little poem. I'm no poet and tried cracking one for this post. Well, with all that's been said and said in the Scarlett group, all of which are very agreeable, I still feel that I will have this outfit. The Franklin Mint version is sooooo elusive, and its feels like "ducks on a june bug" whenever the Franklin Mint New Orleans Honeymoon dress is posted in eBay.
Last night a series of email exchanges in the group reflected the yearning for re-interpreted versions or new versions of GWTW dresses and so it seems that if it doesn't surpass the existing, or isn't a delightfully new one, then it falls short of expectations.
Thanks to Nikki who enlightened me on what dress supposedly would come out. She can recall lines easily from GWTW. Amazing. "Dressed like Racehorses" was a line that the great Mammy would describe Scarlett and Rhett i.e., that they would be dressed like racehorses but be mules just the same.
And to Dale Ohl of Lonestar Dolls who tipped me on the soon-to-be-released Tonner GWTW.
