Weekend Casual II –Turtleneck T-shirts

Posted by helen on November 9, 2014

This girl is wearing exactly what I am wearing today.  A pair of Jeans and a long sleeve turtleneck printed cotton t-shirt from  “Jones New York Holiday Collection”.

I purchased this t-shirt a few days ago only b/c it was on sale, the sleeves were  too long, so I cut them  short— nothing was wasted, the 2 pcs of  remnants were just enough to make Barbie a t-shirt.
I think she likes it.  we are both happy. :)

Steffie got one for Christmas Holidays:

You can’t blame her for wearing Santa t-shirt in early Nov. The stores are full of Christmas stuffs right now, some stores put them out before Halloween… it annoys me… lol

On the Red Carpet: Fan BingBing Musical Dress

Posted by helen on October 30, 2014

my laptop had a Ransom Virus attack last week, hackers destroyed all of my image files then asked for $500 to buy recovery program. well, If a victim doesn’t pay within 5 days, the ransom amount would go up to $1,000

unfortunately, I would not even pay 5 cents, with $500, I can buy a new laptop, and I did just that. I picked up one at the Best Buy near me.  The last time my lap top had serious Virus attacks was in May, 2011. I was patient enough to clear it up all by myself.  This time my brain & patience are not there, besides. my laptop is 6 years old, it heats up really fast,  the fan makes big noises (like a bee buzzing around), the left touch pad button does not work… so I decided not to bother but get a new one

This would be the first project after getting the new laptop.

The Dress is designed by Fan’s personal stylist Christopher Bu, sketch is gifted to Fan  by Robert Best. Fan wore this dress at the “Fan BingBing Barbie” Launching Ceromony

Fan BingBing

My Doll dress is best fit Silkstones. although Model Muse can wear it, too.

Aint they happy?

Barbie Look– Red Carpet Pink Gown

Posted by helen on October 24, 2014

This doll was not on “to-buy” list, then, Kmart Online offered a great price $12 (plus shipping & tax) so she came home

The doll may have nothing special, but… if compared to these $100 dolls,  such as Mistress of Manor, Venetian MuseFarawy Forest Elf, … she still wins.
A replica gown that is just right for the season:

Weekend Projects: Little Black Dresses

Posted by helen on October 12, 2014

I dont remember how many black dresses I have made for Barbie,  here comes another two:

The construction of this dress is simple, but the ultra thin sheer fabric is a great pain to sew,  also, it took quite some time to sew on the Red  Sequis & Beads.

Halloween isnt so far away!  Dolls need witch hats and broomsticks….

Back to Basics–Barbie Look Magenta Gown

Posted by helen on October 10, 2014

she is probably the least popular doll in the group. The color of her dress is bright,  her face is so plain, these false eyelashes are ridiculous.

Here is a replica of the Dress in Pumpkin color,  Lea pulls it off beautifully:

Fall Festival

Posted by helen on September 28, 2014

Thanks to our  Chamber of Commerce, there are always fun events in the neighborhood. Today “Fall Festival” took place. Barbie & Ken Joined us…

The Couple received  a lot of compliments. “she is chic, he is gorgeous…”  My neighbors are very Fashionable & knowledgeable,  “Is he Karl Lagerfeld?” 2 laidies asked.  they got it right!

I purchased the “choupette” miniature Cat at last year’s street fair,  I was trying to find another today. but I didnt have the luck! then,  I felt someone was calling me from behind “hello, hello”, I turned back,  a lady ran to me, she wanted to take a close look at my dolls. she  is also a Barbie Collector and told me how her coworkers threw her a “Barbie themed” Birthday Party, she was happy like a little child! lol   –I have said many times that Travel dolls are “conversation starters”.  Whenever I bring my dolls with me, someone will strike up a conversation. The Last time when I was at Farley Post Office , a police offier saw my doll and said “My sister is a Barbie Collector”.

okay, some photos:

Barbie & Ken Leaving their “Dreamhouse” for the Fall Festival

Believe or not, this Ken doll can stand alone without a  stand, you just need to balance him a little bit. of course, make sure he wears flat shoes.

Ken had a bad hair day, the wind blew up his hair like crazy.

our neighborhood is very peaceful, although its quite populated.

Lots people on the street, you are never alone.

once I traveled to a small city and walked alone on a street in its downtown area,   I walked down about 10 blocks and didnt see a single soul on the street, I got  nervous, it was very unusual for me.  I am so used to seeing big crowds around me.

Barbie probably loves Crowds, Ken maybe hates them.  just  look the expressions on his face:

Shopping for SunGlasses

New York & Company (I have some cheap shirts bear its label)

Barbie probably wont buy a dress from Street Vendors. but we never know:

Barbie: “Check out Sephora?”

Ken:  “No!”

“Come on, just one quick look!”

“Ann Taylor loft” –it used to be a Disney Store,  but its gone,  thanks that Ann taylor Moved in. I do not like to see more “Space for Rent” signs.

I like Ann Taylor

Time to go home:

Home Again
