Replacing à + object with ‘y’

Bonjour Madame, 

A sentence from the lesson states -  

Nous nous l'imaginons blonde aux yeux bleus. 

Could “aux yeux bleus” be replaced with “y” as and be correct -

Nous nous l’y imaginons blonde. ? 

Merci beaucoup !

This question relates to:
French lesson "Reflexive + direct object (double pronouns)"

iI Shrey,

No,  as a pronoun replaces a previously mentioned noun or noun phrase.

In this case you wouldn't know what you are talking about and it doesn't make any sense....

Thanks ma’am for highlighting the same . It does sound ambiguous. Merci encore. Cordialement, Shrey.
