Tulips Vs. Roses
Posted by helen on May 10, 2012
Jingle Flowers “Comme Des Garcons” Barbie dolls came out in Dec. 2009, the price was $385 in the NYC CDG store (£225 in Europe?) Amazingly, they sold out pretty fast, someone wanted to buy and asked me to call the store in NYC, I did and was told the dolls were already sold out, I was happy that it saved me a subway ride in a cold winter day as I did not care for these dolls. lol
there are 3 of them in the collection: Steffie, Lea & Diva from Barbie basic collection 001, all wear an ill-fitting dress that has large armholes, the giant rose prints is called “Jingle flowers”, I think the store was selling Handbags that had the same prints.
I am not the one who would spend more than $400 (after tax) on a doll like this, she is just a Barbie Basic doll, should be no more than $19. I have never heard “Comme Des Garcons” before this doll, so the brand is worth nothing to me –lol, sorry to say, if everyone is like me, many big-name designers will have to go out of business, as I just dont care for the big names, its the conent that counts.
so, I have this piece of fabric that I could not find any use of it, after seeing this CDG doll again today, I came up with this:
Tulip vs Rose.
See my Steffie’s Lady GaGa shoes? lol –they were from Fashionista Pack. It would be great if its black or Red or Orange, we need dramatic colors, not pale old gold…
