Day 20: Sassy Santa! - 2007 Holiday Barbie

Why didn't anyone think of this before? One of the most identifiable characters of the holiday season is none other than Santa Claus. Well, why not dress Barbie as the part? With a little more style of course!

I love her. I love how unique it is! And so very Santa! So cute!

Again, faux fur, perfect for the Christmas dress. And gorgeous curls and jewelry! And the belt adds the right touch.

I love how they incorporated black lace in all the right places to give it that feminine flair. And the white gloves add the perfect finishing touch.

The back of the box reads: "Frosty window panes frame our festive "Miss Claus" at a fabulous fete. The best holiday gifts at this party? Fun, fashion, lots of love- and the Holiday Barbie ornament, the perfect present for every Barbie lover, available from Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments!"

I do not have this Hallmark Ornament. I stopped collecting them a few years back. I should get them out just to see how many I have. It's been so long I don't remember! Dresses are so much more cute with the skirt all flared out as in the ornament.

And because I did not know what "fete" was, I looked it up. :)

fete

1. a day of celebration; holiday: The Fourth of July is a great American fete.
2. a festive celebration or entertainment: The ball was the greatest fete of the season.
3. a religious feast or festival: a fete lasting several days in honor of a saint.

Now we are all the wiser. :) So what do you think of Barbie as Miss Claus? 

See you tomorrow!
