Have you ordered the new Barbie 2017 Calendar ? these are the design concept sketches, but Barbie probably wont have these fashions made by Mattel. I’ll try a few of them just like I did in 2009.
Jan. 2017 Pink Garden Dress with Hat
It took me a week to make this dress.
Feb 2017, Polka Dot Dress
Polka dots are timeless, this dress is a classic 50s style designed by Adele Simpson
People often cry out loud for the little purse that Mattel no longer offers, so I have to make one:

Hudson’s Bay Barbie is a thoughtfully designed doll. she has very nice outfits and accessories, the whole package is very presentable.
But the doll itself falls flat, nothing so special or unique about this face, its another blond Barbie basic dolls
I decided to let my Travel doll model the Hudson Fashion, then we left home for a street Fair, she wasn’t buying anything but fishing compliments: “oh, I love this doll!” “she is so pretty…” lol
Lots interesting things to see at the fair:
shoes, not Barbie’s size!
these Little Dolls are keychains
The “Jewish Center”
Time to go home:
Wait, we need to check out this store:
you’ll have more fun if you can manage to pay a lot less.
we did not come home empty-handed, we bought 3 miniature “food” trays include Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings. so our “Thanksgiving Feast” is ready.

Halloween is just around the corner, who has the most fun? of course Barbie!
The dress is hand-embroidered, I bet not many people in America are still hand-embroidering.

This doll has been the talk of the town, she was first spotted at New Yaohan Dept. store in Macau, China in the middle of August. but Mattel went after all the doll forums & bloggers to remove the photos.
Since she is now in the US market, and she is in my hand, I suppose its okay to post a few photos.– I am so not happy with BFC, it offers almost no service, so I decided to use BC to host my photos. –hope the photos do show up, so BC makes itself a little bit useful lol
I picked up mine from NYC store. I preordered her on Aug 26.
Poor Barbie had to ride Subway home with me, no pink convertible whatsoever
On heels, On subway

She consoles me for all the fun I have missed at 2016 Barbie Convention!
I suppose she is at Andy Warhol’s Gallery Opening
I guess it was a pretty popular style back in 60s:

To Celebrate Belle & her Prince’s 25th Anniversary, Disney rolled out 3 New “Beauty & Beast” dolls: Belle, Beast and Gaston, early today (Aug 2nd) in their selected stores. the dolls will also be available online on Aug 3rd . The Belle doll may be worth collecting….
Belle Limited Edition 17″ Doll
Global Edition: 5,000 – $119.95 US / $149.95 CAN
no one has the doll in hand yet, her eBay price already hits $398.
By the Way, Mattel’s 50th Anniversary Francie doll (limited to 4,000) will also hit the market on Aug 3rd, only I don’t think Franice would be sold out immediately, but the Belle doll may be out before you know it.

the doll has lots scratches on her body, a lopsided face. the outfits not only cheap & unfit, the factory workers also left Shiny Iron scorch marks which caused discolorations.
some alterations are made, the peplum at the bottom of the skirt has turned into puritan collars, still cheap-looking, b/c the nylon fabric is not apparel quality:
A new makeover & a new Summer Sundress:
