Barbie for big girls.

Decking the Halls with Paintbox Designs

One of my favorite things about being part of the collecting community is discovering amazing OOAK fashions for our diminutive divas.   This past June, Pam Seeman of Paintbox Designs brought her fabulous fashions to the National Barbie Convention for the first time.  I think it is fair to say she and her fashions were a huge hit.  Paintbox Designs has been a fixture at Fashion Royalty convention but this year was the first time we had the pleasure of seeing and purchasing her fashions for Ms. Barbie.  I must have spent a good thirty minutes at her table…along with a whole host of other shoppers and walked away with some beautiful OOAK outfits.  I adore the floaty rose fabric she used for the skirt of Dasha’s dress.  Loni’s dress is one of her signature designs and it never disappoints.  I must have this design in at least three different colors.  You can find Pam and Paintbox Designs at

Models:  FR2 Always Polished Dasha and Lemon Crush Loni Lawrence

Gowns: Paintbox Designs (

Shoes: FR2 “Shoe Win” shoe pack from 2012 FR convention( Dasha), Mattel (Loni)

It looks like Dasha is completely bored at the country club holiday party…LOL!

    • LOL! I know right?! I had her posed on the chair and just liked it that way…then went with it. I figured she was a boared debutant saying to herself ” God just give me another drink to get through this thing!”

    Hey Rebecca! Loving your photos. I am so glad to see you embracing Loni – I believe she is so under-rated. Those FR2 shoes from the convention are smokin’ with that Paintbox dress! Gorgeous photos as always. Happy Holidays, dear friend.
