Play Date with Barbie !

Hey Gang !

Today, I finally had a chance to unwind and de-stress a bit and check out my new articluated Silkstone Barbie doll.  I know there are a lot of people weighing in on this gal, and rather than bore you with picky details, I will just say that for the money, I  think she’s great !  Are there a few things I’d like to change ? Yes. But as I know with any new release, there may be kinks and minor trouble spots yet to be worked out, and so I am willing to over look these and for now just enjoy her.

OK, so I dug through my fashion doll clothing stash and found some outfits that I felt fit her well and looked becoming. I tweaked her hair a bit too,  just because I could . 🙂

Unfolding here are the highlights of my play date with the first articulated Silkstone (LBD) Barbie.  I think you can tell, I was delighted with her performance !

If you’ve been on the fence as to whether or not you should get her, maybe these pictures will help you decide !

  1. She’s to die for. ❤ ❤ ❤ And that sheath by Bren (Matisse) is perfect! I covet that fabric so much that I go into paroxysms of delight every time I see she's used it.
    (I would LOVE a peek at your doll clothes collection!) 😉

  2. My best friend got her and loves her! I can’t wait to send her link so that she can see your photos. I love all the looks you gave her. She’s on my wish list now for sure. 🙂
