It’s like getting a new doll when you de-box one that you have had packed away for ages. Today’s Friday Girl is one of The Barbie Look City Shine collection from 2015. These dolls were given a theme of metallic tones and this one is probably the most subtle of the first wave. As Mattel don’t seem to have bothered to name them I’ll refer to her by her new name, Margaret, in future.
Margaret has the Model Muse body but thankfully she only has one bent arm not the dreaded double bent arms, such a pain to redress those girls. Her face is the Aphrodite mold. She has rooted eyelashes. The dress is rather interesting I think. It looks flimsy as it is black and silver woven material but it is lined with tan silky fabric which not only makes it stronger but also gives the impression that it is partly see through. It does up with three snaps at the back.
I like her earrings and her silver clutch which is hard plastic and looks a bit art deco to me. I quite like how this dress reflects the light but I’m looking forward to trying some other fashions on Margaret later.
