Happy November

Posted by helen on November 1, 2017

Leaves are falling,
Winter’s calling
we are thankful
for our friends
Nove-m-ber
It’s November once again
You must remember.

Snow White– Saks Fifth Ave Exclusive LE1,000

Posted by helen on October 27, 2017

Limited to 1,000 world wide,  I added  her to the shopping cart, the total came out as $402 ($370 + Sales Tax),   Hmm… too much for me, so I dumped her.

Her price on eBay probably will be soaring up to $2k.  after all, its only 1,000 units worldwide.

but I really don’t have $402 right now, so I’ll go to Amazon & buy a $15 Snow White instead, she would be one of my DIY holiday projects..

Sunday Surprises

Posted by helen on October 22, 2017

My place looks no better than a Junk Yard. I can never find what I look for,  but something unexpected would show up  to surprise me.

This little doll turned up when I opened a “Trash Or Treasure” box, this is one of the two Integrity Dolls I have. I bought her out of curiosity,  I never bought more.   IT dolls don’t have the faces that I like, their clothes are better sewn than Barbie’s, fabric choices are also better than Barbie’s, but that’s all about it.

This doll is Monte Carlo Victoire Roux.    her original dress & coat are “Inspired” by vintage Balenciaga, I don’t remember where I put them,  perhaps  one day  a ghost will bring them to me.

now she is wearing “Gucci”

Her face has been repainted.

This is her original look:

Big price Drop

Posted by helen on October 9, 2017

Good News or Bad news? All the Silkstone Barbie dolls are on sale again! the last sales happened in August, they were 30% off.   This time its 25% to 40% off.

…perhaps its time you give Barbie a boost and help America’s Economy grow by taking advantage of the 40% discount.  🙂  I already have all the Silkstone dolls except for the Blue Chiffon Gown… I will  try  to get her before this week ends. she would be $45 plus sales tax. its so much better than $75.  but I feel sorry for both Mattel & Barbie….  the market is slow,  something Mattel is doing is not right for Barbie

Friday Night Cocktails…

Posted by helen on October 6, 2017

The Lavender Luxe Mermaid Gown now is a cocktail dress, Barbie is on her way to a Party:

The dress looks very romantic, and she holds a Genuine Leather Purse:

someone is going to buy her some drinks:

The Little sister  has barely reached drinking age:

but she has plenty of admirers.

This is the original Mattel “Blush N Gold” cocktail dress:

Wearing big sister’s dress:


She looks even prettier

 

so, Purple VS Blush,  which do you fancy?

The Witch is out!

Posted by helen on October 4, 2017

I have been watching  some documentaries about witchcraft on YouTube, it scares me.  But I’m not afraid of  Barbie,  she can’t do the Math,  she can’t build a website…   I figured she can’t cast a spell on anyone, either.  she  only likes to play dress-up…

Halloween is on its way!

Glam Gown

Posted by helen on October 3, 2017

I bought this doll as a part of my shopping therapy while feeling down. I don’t really like her face, the purple eye shadows don’t go well with her pink gown.

The  Gown does not live up to its $100 price tag. These visible stitches on her bust bother me.

the Bodice isn’t well tailored to fit the doll, the waist is too loose, the bust is too small, however, it fits Model Muse Dolls:

I decided to make a little alteration to hide these ugly stitches then pair it up with one of the Blue dresses I made for my “Winter Blue collection” , “Stunning in the spotlight” & “Blush N Gold” Dolls are competing in Blue & Pink:

Here they are getting ready for their Red Carpet presences:

At the Oscars:

Happy October

Posted by helen on October 1, 2017

Welcome, October!

‘Listen!
The wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!’
—Humbert Wolfe

Barbie invites you to kick leaves and pick pumpkins… Have an enchanted October, everyone!
