On my visit to the Barbie Aisle at Big W I was pretty disappointed in the dolls on offer as I mentioned in my previous post. I ended up buying a pair of Barbie outfits that I thought were passable though and when I got home I deboxed them for a couple of the girls to model.
Although this set has the obligatory pink clothing I thought there was enough variety for me to be able to use the pieces. It is not as big a set as the old Fashion Fever closets. Here are all the pieces including accessories.
Today’s models are Robyn, my rescued Fashion Fever girl and my recently bought and as yet unnamed Fashionista. Any suggestions for names for this curly-haired girl will be appreciated as I now have so many Barbies that I have trouble remembering their names myself. If I was their mother I’d be running off fifty plus names trying to remember the right one. 🙂
Here is our curly-haired model wearing the jeans and top. I quite like these although she will be a tad chilly in a Tasmanian winter in them. Luckily yesterday was a sunny day.
Robyn is wearing the more dressy outfit of skirt and top. I thought this top was a little strange, I hope I put it on her the way it was meant to go. The bling is made of plastic and is easy to put on and the shoes have a slit in the back. I like this idea as I have as much trouble putting on Barbie shoes as any small child and have broken straps trying to do it and lost others when they have gone flying out of my hand or fallen off the doll when I’ve moved her.
Here are the girls off to the movies. They have their tickets and popcorn but I hope the theatre doesn’t have a strict dress code because they have only one pair of shoes between them. I thought that was a bit cheap of Mattel as the pink ones don’t really go with the jeans and striped top. A black pair would have been nice.
