Barbie Style 2.0!
Happy Saturday to me! It feels like my birthday, but it's not. I never thought I would find the new Barbie Style girls. But today I found three of them at my local Walmart. And surprise, surprise, Walmart had them at the normal retail price, not the typical inflated Walmart price. At first I was only going to get one, but I knew I wanted to buy four of the five dolls, and three of the four were right there in front of me. I didn't want to risk waiting to buy them later, and not being able to find the ones I wanted.
My first choice was the Steffie mold. I love everything about this outfit. You can't really see the shoes, but they are red with a nude color heel and a cute red bow on top. All the pieces are separate. I chose not to debox her, because the box is not designed to easily remove the dolls and put back into the box.
The handbag is really cute.
The lace collar and the sunglasses complement each other. Is it me, or are the heads back to normal size?
Here was my second choice. Again all the pieces are separate.
My third and final choice.
I was pretty happy with my three dolls. Of course Racquelle was nowhere to be found. They did have the Artsy version, but my primary purpose for buying these dolls are the outfits and I prefer the chic outfits to Artsy's sporty outfit.
Artsy appears on the end. I do like her hair and earrings, but with two Artsy's in my stories, I can't see adding another one.
When I got home I realized I had purchased the wrong size dog food. Aargghh! I have never done that before. I went back and forth on deciding to just keep it, but once I saw the bag was NOT resealable, I knew I had to return it. I hastily got back in my car and drove to a different Walmart to make the dog food switch. Guess who was there waiting for me?!
Racquelle! I did my cabbage patch dance right there in the aisle.
She wanted to be deboxed, so I obliged her. They are killing me with the Racquelle dolls. The real eyelashes make her stand out. I can't add another Racquelle to the stories. I have three in there already, but I am impressed with her.
Her tights are shimmery and her handbag is very soft, has a snap, and opens.
Here she shows off the separate pieces.
What a wonderful start to the weekend.
