Barbie for big girls.

A New Poppy Plus Silkstone Sneak Peeks

I received the new “That Holiday Feeling” Poppy Parker a couple of days ago.  Usually I get a shipping notice but not this time.  It was a nice surprise.  Here is her promo shot again

The hairstyle is quite a bit different than the promo shots.  The bangs needed some work to get them into a pleasing shape but a little bit of gel goes a long way to solve that dilemma.  The rest of the hair while different is very pretty.  Her face is sublime.  Classic Poppy Parker.  The dress came out of the box fairly wrinkled hence the tight in shot but that can be ironed to fix.  The fabric of the gown is nice and the cape is adorable.  I hope those lucky enough to win the chance to purchase get her in time to enjoy her over the holidays. 

In other exciting fashion doll collector news recently, new Silkstone Barbie photos!!!  Mattel shared  information on two new Silkies to be released in 2015.

Hold the phone people!!  If this price point is right… $59.00 is a steal!!  I adore the little side chignon on this one.  This one screams “gentleman caller” to me.  She has to be from the south with an elegant hat like that.

Oh the Chanelness of it all!!!  This one is a no brainer for me.  I hope the actual production doll has a shorter bob haircut like this.  She is going to look fabulous next to my Preferably Pink Silkstone.  I am noticing that there are no earrings with either one of these Silkstones.  I guess this is one way to alleviate the “green ear” issue.  This girl desperately needs a pair of pearl earrings to complete the look.  I mean come on…what fashionista is going to leave the house without earrings….not this one.

    I was one of the lucky ones. She was a no-brainer entry for me. Poppy + Christmas = Big Smile on Me.
