Barbie for big girls.

A Glimmer of Inspiration

Many of you may remember the platinum edition BFC exclusive Glimmer of Gold™ Barbie® Doll.  I was lucky enough to be able to get this one.

While engaging in my favorite pastime  {cough} obsession {cough}, I came across a photo on Pinterest (Thank you Ana Labato!! showed me a likely inspiration for this doll design.

Cool!  And since I know a friend of mine is anticipating the arrival of the platinum edition AA Golden Gala into their collection, I took some photos with her in the Glimmer of Gold fashion.  And it’s in THE window. Smile

    • Thank you Yolanda! I was realizing here recently that I have not redressed this beauty and photographed her. She wears pretty much everything very well. I am feeling a whole photo session coming up with her as the model. Hope she finds her way to your collection some day. She is a stunner!

    • Wny Thank you Sir Urrggh. 😉 I may keep her in this outfit for a while. She is keeping me company on my desk for now and I just keep staring at her… beautiful. A rediscovered treasure in the collection. Don’t you just love it when that happens.

  4. It’s the best! I used to have her and traded her even though I loved her. The one and only time I’ve done that. I traded her for a very rare european store display sign. Ultimately she’s replaceable while the sign is not. But I’ve been trolling ebay lately and if convention wasn’t around the corner, I probably would have snatched one up. lol
