Barbie for big girls.

First Silkstone of 2017 Coming Soon

It looks like these images are up on the Barbie Collection website so I will share them here too.  The first Silkstone of 2017 will be available tomorrow!!  While I am not a fan of this articulated body, I still love the look of this first offering.

I find it very interesting that these images are available but no news on the Barbie Fan Club for 2017 is up and available yet.  Word is 03/31/2017.  Let’s just say, I will believe it when I see it.  In the mean time, there are images and a price point for this silkstone to mull over. 

Black & White Tweed Suit Barbie® Doll

Love the redhead!  Love the suit and Hermes inspired Kelly bag.  The hat…hmmmm…will have to see.  Happy that this lady has earrings!  I have to be honest…I am shocked we don’t have any new information on the BFC yet…just some vague information that it would be coming out by 03/31/2017.  I will be adding this beauty to my collection, club or no club.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the facial screening. But I love that outfit! And $75 isn’t too bad…if I can get her.

    • It is a new type of facial screening. I just love the combo of red hair and that green eyeliner 😉

  2. I think she’s great, love the suit. Don’t like the face-up but I’ll repaint her anyway, and I think she’s well worth getting. I bought the Glam Gown silkstone and was very happy with her, and her face-up is lovely.

    • Oh to have a talent for repainting! I envy you that. 🙂

    I adore her! I pre-ordered her the second I saw her. Love the red hair, her outfit, and LOVE her makeup. And she has accessories! I’ve been collecting for a while, wasn’t a fan of the articulated idea….at first. But bought the Classic Black Dress, and love the poseability! Can’t wait to get this beauty and pose her!

    • Congrats on acquiring this beauty Christopher! I am still waiting for a better articulated body for these Silkies. I would love to have just a bit more rotation ability in the hands.

    I love everything about this doll. Hat is great, suit is wonderful and the kelly purse is to die for . That red hair is sumptuous. If I can us that to describe doll Love this from head to toe.

    • Her hair is indeed sumptuous! It’s a Titian banquet! 😉

  5. It’s now April 24th, and still no sign of the new BFC membership. I feel so adrift!
