Barbie for big girls.

It’s time for another Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi!

I feel like I have been neglecting my Silkstones for the past few months so it was time to bring em back and do it right.  I joke with James Bogue all the time about the fact that I am such a “pinkophile” when it comes to his creations.  If it’s in pink…I’m liking it.  It came as a  complete shock that I was drawn to a powder blue dress he had on his Etsy site and once I received it…I was in LOVE.  I had the perfect lady to model it too. I had finally worked up the courage to cut and restyle a Preferably Pink Silkstone Barbie into the hairstyle I feel she should have originally came with…a shorter bob cut.  I love it on her and I hope you do to.

Model:  Restyled Preferably Pink Silkstone Barbie

Dress and Hat:  Bogue’s Vogues (

Shoes:  Mattel

And because I am headed into dance recital season and things are about to get wayyyy stressful, I threw this in for fun.  This needs to be my mantra for the next 4 weeks…should I take up yoga????20120531-IMG_9205-Editwmsizedclipart

    • Thanks my dear! I need to do something to destress this end of the school year chaos. I think yoga followed by a glass of wine sounds good. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Pam! I wa soooo very happy with how the haircut enhanced this lady. Her original sketch by Mr. Best showed her with a shorter bob haircut and I felt that was how she really should have been done.

    • Thank you soooo much Michael! LOL!! oh no…there are many pinkophiles trolling Jame’s site for his pink fashions. I would say I was lucky to get a pink one about every one out of 10 times I try for it. Don’t you just love her in the shorter bob haircut?!

  7. I’ve just received Mad Men Joann Holloway, although she is not an FR I can seriously see their beauty, They are gorgeous! I have loved the Designers creations from afar… May cave in to get some hoping soon. BTW I just started Yoga and it has been an eye opener.

    • I am totally thinking about taking up yoga…if for no other reason than I LOVE yoga pants and I am hoping to destress my life. I adore the Mad Men dolls that Mattel did. I was hoping they would do a Peggy but guess not.
