Barbie for big girls.

Preferably Pink for early Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi

Preferably pink refers to the doll in this photo but it really could be the gown as well.  This was perhaps my favorite Bogue’s Vogues purchase of the year though choosing a favorite Bogue’s Vogue is like choosing my favorite child between my two kids….impossible.  This delicious pink cotton pique number with rolled black velvet collar is paired with a black velvet hat with netting bow.  TO DIE FOR!  Once again Mr Bogue…that hat is off to you.  Ms. Preferably Pink has had her hair restyled at the salon de Berry.

Model:   Preferably Pink Silkstone Barbie

Gown and hat:  Bogue’s Vogues (

Shoes:  Mattel

Wall panel:  made by me ( tutorial is available here…

Bottle Brush Tree: Bethany Lowe Pastel bottle brush tree

** tree is sitting on a miniature stone urn.  The urn does not come with the tree**

    I was the lucky winner of Mr. Bogue’s creation at the opening night of the National Barbie Convention last night. There was no commentary with the doll but the outfit was of this style with a pearl necklace and petite
    Flowered cap on a number one repro Barbie doll. It is beautifully made!
