The last Silkstone doll I purchased was Lavender Luxe, she was $100 when I bought her in early Aug, 2015, she was the last silkstone I purchased, I never bought her successor “Blush Beauty”, b/c I believe the quality isn’t there.
I felt foolish to pay $100 on a doll with such low quality, it happened to me so often, but I still went ahead and brought her home , how silly? I finally learned my lesson and did not buy any after this.
the lavender dress has 2 layers, the organza/tulle overlay is smaller than the underneath layer of polyester taffeta, so the taffeta is all wrinkled, looks awful on the doll.
The 2 back panels are lopsided, one panel is much longer than the other,
if you close the snaps, this is how it looks:
Mattel’s workers really don’t care anything about “craftsmanship”, I don’t have to mention the big head splayed legs…
b/c I wasn’t happy with what I got, I bought my very first Victoire Roux ( Monte Carlo )–I only wanted to see exactly how much better IT’s clothes are. Yes, IT throws Mattel 10 blocks behind. Will I start collecting IT? No, the looks & styles of IT’s dolls are not my cup of tea. if only Barbie can manage to keep me… sigh.
