Barbie for big girls.

It’s Party Time

Everyone in the fashion world has their eyes turned toward Paris right now for the culmination of the 2017 Spring Summer Ready to Wear shows and I thought, “what does one do at the end of fashion week?”.  If it were me, I would want to celebrate so that is the inspiration behind this group of photos.  Well…that and a killer sparkle dress from Rimdoll. 

Here is the mood board I posted on Instagram.

Dress:  Rimdoll on Etsy

Shoes:  Integrity Toys Cold shoulder Eugenia

Earrings:  Integrity Toys Fabulous Fields Luchia

Glassware:  Facets by Marcia

Fur Wrap:  Pottery Barn wine bottle adornment ( yes!!  seriously!!  I know right?!)

Champagne bottle:  origins of which are lost in the quagmire of my mind….

There was another item besides the gown that I was inspired by.  Those of us who attended last years Integrity Toys convention were a bit hmmmm…lets just say underwhelmed by the convention doll last year.  Her name was ‘Making an Entrance’ Karolin Stone and she was a severe looking lady with a major broad forehead.  Not the most attractive look in my opinion.

I really liked her facial screening but I was all ready to sell this one when I saw an image of a restyled Karolin on Rimdoll’s Etsy site.  I decided to change course and see if I could soften her look a bit.  Here is what I ended up with and I have to say…I am very happy Winking smile

She still has the wide forehead but at least it’s softened up by the roll of bangs.

  5. YAS! she looks so good girl! Yep that forehead isn’t the most flattering, maybe some straight across bangs might work? But I adore what you’ve done with her hair! And that dress is just so cool! Nothing more to say! >.<
