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
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.
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.
