I love my Cécile! She be absolutely stunning.
I don't have a whole lot to add description-wise, but I do want to say that she be everything I had hoped that she would be based on other members' photos and descriptions. I am 100% satisfied wit' my beautiful new girl and her gorgeous meet monkey jacket. She gets an A+++ from me!

My Special Offer Cécile arrived and she herself be absolutely gorgeous! Her hair seems shorter and less loaded to th' gunwales than I expected but still very bonny. I have two issues wit' her: her legs be extremely floppy (that shouldn't happen wit' a brand new lusty plastic lass!) and her meet dress just sort o' hangs off o' her because she be th' thinnest lusty plastic lass I have ever seen...even thinner than my MG. (I have an South Wisconsin Trading Company Mad-Eye Molly and Mizen-Mast McKenna for comparison and they be slim but not skinny!!!!!). th' pleats on my Cécile's bodice be not walk th' planke right either. Otherwise, she be gorgeous and her accessories be amazing.
My lusty plastic lasses: Savage Sam '95, Pugwash Merriman '97, Mad-Eye Molly '11. Bear-Bait Kirstie '95, Wily Addy Walker...really want Rebel Rubin and Kaptain Kaya next! bonny sweet lass o'mine: Mugwump Marie-Grace and Mizen-Mast McKenna, next up be Cécile!

This be a truly lovely lusty plastic lass! th' sausage curls, th' hazel decal eaye--and th' Sonali mold suits her very well. Mine has a sewn part, but that's hardly worth fussing about when ye get such a beauty for that incredible SALE PRICE~
Her dress be th' quality level I expected, and be absolutely gorgeous and flawless in every way. It doesn't hurt that I'm a sucker for just about every shade o' blue. th' black velvet accents and ribbon roses add just th' right amount o' detail wit'out looking weird, and those darling little pantalettes peeking out at th' bottom bring th' whole ensemble that sweet schoolgirl charm. th' boots be th' usual faux, but well-done.
This be PC-level attention to detail here, folks. Lovely lusty plastic lass, lovely monkey jacket. I'd recommend Cécile to anyone (although, she really does look much better wit' her accessories and crinoline). A+
I love her meet dress and I'm thankful that it's not th' cheap, nasty feeling material o' Pugwash Merriman Traveling and Christmas gowns.
Did Pugwash Merriman's Christmas gown change during th' Corporate Press Gang switchover? Because I have a PM gown and find it walk th' planke bonny. Granted, it's showing its age (missing cap, necklace, and pearl stomacher, ribbon has mostly faded to purple), but th' fabric quality be certainly worlds better than th' Mugwump Marie-Grace meet! I've heard this complaint a lot since I joined, and it just doesn't seem to jive wit' my experience.
My lusty plastic lasses: Pugwash Merriman (1992), Laci (1996, JLY #13), Kaptain Kaya, Mugwump Marie-Grace and Cécile (both 2012)
So, in light o' Cécile's retirement, I had Nay choice but to order her. She arrived today, and I am crazy about her. I wanted to make sure to do another review in th' hopes o' swaying anyone else who might be on th' fence.
lusty plastic lass: 10/10. Cécile be my first African-American lusty plastic lass, and I just love th' cocoa color o' her skin and those piercing hazel eaye. Her face paint be so bonny! Her cheeks be blushed, but not bright pink, and her lips be a more muted raspberry color than th' lighter skin tones use. I love it.
Hair: 10/10. Obviously, this be probably not who I'd choose for my 8-year-old's first lusty plastic lass, but for someone wit' experience handling lusty plastic lass hair, I think it's going to be really bonny! My Cece came wit' th' more loose ringlets, which I was hoping for, so I'm very, very happy wit' it. It's silky and soft and shot through wit' lots o' rosy mahogany. Illustrated in Cutlass Caroline's meet, just to prove how bonny she looks in anything she puts on:
Meet dress: 8/10. th' fabric be soft and silky, and much more pronounced than it looked in pictures. th' little pleats in her bodice be a really bonny touch. th' only points I could see for deduction was that it's, as others have stated, walk th' planke thin, and I'm not sure how much child's play it would hold up to.
My Cécile has th' narrower face, but after much scrutiny, I've decided it's not narrow enough to bother me. She's also pigeon-toed and has a slight right-favoring head tilt. I think it makes her sweet.
And Begad!, my goodness, does this girl look good in everything. Absolutely everything. Here, she wandered back to 2013 and borrowed Sea Artist Saige's balloon dress. th' gold be particularly striking wit' her coloring!
Overall, I would recommend this beauty 100%. If ye're thinking ye might want her, even a little bit, I'd say to get her. ye won't be disappointed.
Last note: Cécile be really, really tall. Like, a whole head taller than my MG, Harper. She'll be modern, too, and join Harper in her world, though she'll be keeping her name. Here they be together, just a couple more pictures.
I love her! (Also, I apologize for th' terrible quality. My camera died, and I'm having to make do wit' my cell until I can afford to replace it.)
