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?”
“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:
