Fashion Fever Closets – Part Fourteen – Fuchsia and Pink Closet


Here is another in my series on Fashion Fever Closets. Once again I am not sure of the proper name for this closet so I’ll call it Fuchsia and Pink.

This closet is an interesting one. It has some pieces in it I really like but also a couple that I look at and wonder “What were they thinking?”

The models today are:

  • Nicole – Denim Basics Barbie
  • Marissa – Fashionista Raquelle
  • Hillary – Hillary Duff Barbie
  • Leah – Fashion Fever body type
  • Kirsty – Fashion Fever Teresa

The Fashions

First the pieces that I really like. The skirt and top which is made of a material like velour. I love the colour and the soft fabric. I like these pieces together as a little suit or with the sweater.

I like the sweater. I think the shawl  collar is a nice detail and it looks cosy without being bulky and shapeless. It works quite well with the cropped pants and boots but I often mix it with things from other closets as well.

Marissa wears the layerd top with the check pants just to show how it would look.

The layered top looks nice with the skirt although I don’t particularly like it with any of the other pieces in the closet. It does look good with jeans or pants from other closets as well.

The short sleeved top is quite a useful item as it works well with the skirt, cropped pants and long pants in this closet.

Now for the pieces I don’t care for as much. The check patterned dress and pants. The main reason that I don’t care for these is that although I like the colours I feel that the check is too large for a fashion doll. The fabric is meant to resemble a wool weave I think and that’s fine for pants but who would wear a party dress made of this stuff? I just feel itchy thinking about it.

I am not mad about the braces on the pants either as I don’t think they look good over any of the tops in the closet really and although wearing braces hanging down seems to be a thing now I don’t really care for it.

Last of all the crop pants which I’m neutral about. The check pattern seems more to scale for Barbie and they do look good with the boots from the closet. So why am I neutral? Personal taste. I don’t wear crop pants myself and I don’t wear brown so I don’t feel drawn to these. If I were Barbie sized I would not want to wear them.

Here are a few more pictures.

  1. Isn’t it interesting that Barbie started as a fashion model wearing elegant and different types of clothing but today the predominant color is pink? It’s not bad but I like other colors better.

    • I agree and I don’t know why or went the predominance of pink crept in. Vintage Barbies had wardrobes of all colours and her props such as furniture were styled to be realistic. It’s hard to understand why pink has become associated with anything feminine now to the excusion of other colours. I like pink but I think there is too much “Barbie pink” around.

      • I think it is slowly changing. Some of the new Barbies are wearing different colors. The silkstone Barbie has some really nice designs tough. She is very expensive, but some of the outfits are matching the original ones. I am “stalking” a cheap silkstone Barbie. I wonder if I can get lucky.
