Barbie for big girls.

Milan Boating Season is Open

The Italian Doll Convention was held in Milan this past month and the reports from this event spell out a most fantastic time.  The reports are so glowing that I am seriously considering a trip to Milan next year to experience some of the fun.  Like the Paris Fashion Doll Festival, a variation of one of the BFMC’s Silkstone Barbies was given as the convention doll.  She is being referred to as “Milan Boater” and is a honey blond version of the 2013 BFC club doll “Boater Ensemble”

Thanks to a very generous and lovely friend, I had the opportunity to obtain a “Milan Boater” and I love her.

  3. Sheesh, I am in love, she is beautiful in the blonde, the hat is truly amazing and probably worth getting the doll just for that. She suits your collection perfectly, you have a good eye.

    • Yes, worth it for the hat alone! You and I are such hat addicts. Thank you my dear. 🙂

    I think the blonde version is more lovely!

    • I love them both. I think the blond will look amazing in some softer colors that the brunette perhaps will not. Let the redressing fun begin. 🙂
