Barbie for big girls.

The Monogram Exaggeration

Right off the bat, I have to say that the color palette on this offering from Integrity Toys is beautiful.  The coral in the skirt and hat and the insane green of the gloves, shoes and bag are just way out cool.  These”exaggerated” colors are not typically ones that are going to excite me and certainly not together but I love them on this doll.  I like the fact that we have a soft color block dress paired with a solid navy structured jacket.  I love that the outfit is punctuated with the frilly hat like an exclamation point at the end of this fashion sentence.  The hat/feather fascinator looks different here than in the promos….I did some restyling and had to curl some feathers.  I like the fuller look but it may not appeal to everyone.  The whole package screams refinement and fun energy to me.  This lady looks like she is stylish and strong.  Let’s face it…it takes a strong fashionista to wear coral and acid green together…….

  1. I just got her in the mail today and love, love, love her! She has a composed, self-assured look about her that will take her a long way.

    • Well said Joane! Congrats on getting this lovely lady. I am still trying to figure out what to redress her in for another photo shoot.

    • Thanks Don! I usually go for the more classic stying and color pallette but this lady really appeals to me. I know, I know…it’s the hat. I have a “thing” for hats 😉
