Fabulous idea for those tiny accessories

Are you on Facebook? Want a cool place to look at 80's Barbie? The 1980's Barbie Fan Club Page on facebook is a wonderful page with lots of photos of dolls from the era I grew up with. Today they posted this picture.

What a fantastic way to keep shoes seperated! I think I will have to do this. Anyone have any other ideas to keep accessories in one neat location?

The New Gals (and Guys!) On The Block

Greetings!

Man, has your week been as crazy as mine? We just passed the first day of autumn and it sure does feel like autumn. Where I live, once September 21 hits, the rain starts and it gets cold outside. Its literally like a switch, not even kidding. It also means that the big garage sale season is coming to a close. But before everyone packs away their unwanted goods for the winter, my dad came across these awesome dolls and picked them up for me. Thanks Dad!!

First, you remember the little teaser post with the super fab Vespa scooter? Well here it is!


How adorable is this! I remember someone posting that this belongs to a My Scene doll, not Barbie. Am I remembering correctly?

The only downside to this little scooter is it's missing the lid for the helmet compartment. But I'll have to find a cute Fashionista doll to ride on this. Love it and it's in great condition!

For only one little Hamilton ($10, I had to look that up :-) ) my dad picked up these lovelies. And dudes too!


Looks like Sleeping Beauty Barbie and Prince Ken have some visitors!

First, the most adorable Sleeping Beauty Barbie. I've heard of her but never actually seen one in person.


The way these dolls are kept reminds me of how I used to keep my dolls when they were not being played with. Back in their box with the original inside packaging where they wouldn't get dusty or dirty. She is in just beautiful condition and she has her original shoes too!

And just like Sleeping Beauty, her eyes open....


and close.


There is a lever on her back when you engage it, you can raise her right arm and her eyes will open then close again when you put it back down. Disengage the lever and her eyes are permanently open.


She is just so pretty. It appears that her face is shiny but not due to old vinyl. Her head is a hard plastic probably for the eye mechanism. She did not come with her magic musical pillow (boo!) but came with her brush and shoes.

Introducing Prince Ken!


Before I physically got these dolls, my mom was telling me over the phone that this was the Ken face that she liked. I was not sure of which mold she was talking about. She is not fond of the blond hair Ken, she does not think that he is that cute. She said that this Ken face is much better. I will have to agree! As much as I like the other Ken's too, I love this head mold.

This Ken came with everything: shield, sword and brush! And like Barbie, in super stellar condition. I cannot find a blemish on either of these dolls.


I picture of the newly awakened beauty and her prince!


Let's meet their friends, shall we?

Oh my, this guy is in need of a hair-do!


I am not familiar with this head mold. Anyone know who he might be?


Looky here. An EXCELLENT Spot Scene Barbie! Wrong shoes but I'm sure I can find some socks and her original shoes on eBay or something.


The other Spot Scene Barbie I have had her lipstick coming off. I didn't really like the nude color lipstick but this one has a pink shine to it. Love!


And lastly, this gorgeous Teresa doll. She is SOO pretty.


It took quite a bit of searching but luckily I found out who she was. She is Princess Barbie from 2000. 

www.amazon.com (One of the only pics I could find of her)
She, like the other dolls, has a perfect dress but no shoes! She has purple painted-on ballet slippers. Was that a trend for dolls for a while? I seem to be coming across more and more of those lately.

Beautiful.


I do have more dolls that came with these but they will have to wait. There is one in particular that I am super excited about. :) I also have dressed some of the dolls from our Ladies Night in their original fashions. Those will be in a future post as well!

Tune in next tuesday for the October Haute Couture doll of the month! You're going to love her.

Until then!

Fashions Galore Part 2

Well thanks to my awesome blog followers I have gotten the ID's of most of these super cute clothes! The ones on the dolls are most likely part of fashion packs and here are the other pieces.

HOWEVER! There are a few more that I have absolutely NO IDEA where they are from. And everyone is a much better ID-er than I am. I'll let you know where I'll need The Help!

This one I am going to need major help on!

Very big dress and shoes! Definitely not for a Barbie.


There is a little logo on the side. Any ideas? Not that I have a doll to put it on anyway, kind of wish I did. It's pretty.


I think this one comes from Barbie in A Mermaid Tale Beach Teresa.


www.dollstuff.net
From the Pink-B Fashion Pack. One of the Cutie Fashionista Closets.

The Help! I know this is from a doll, just not sure which one!


I've soon found out where these are from. The top vest from the Sporty Fashionista closet and the other is from the Moxie Girlz doll I got Magic Snow Sophina. I actually got two of the top vest.


www.ebay.com
shopping.yahoo.com

The Help! So where are these dresses from? I'm thinking another fashion pack.



With these dresses, I know the pink one on the right is from one of the dolls at the Ladies Night.


She is an Artsy Fashionista.

These cute numbers are from the sporty fashion pack shown above. I have two of the skirt.


The Help! A cute collection of jeans and some other colored pants. The pink and black are from the Sporty Fashionista Closet. Not sure about the rest!



I'm sure this is a Jasmine outfit. It can't possibly be anything else! ;)


The Help! Just like the jeans, this is a very cute collection of shorts. The pink are from the Magic Snow Sophina.


Again, more from the Cutie Fashionistas closet. But what about the asymetrical top?


The Help! Cute tops, no clue.


The one skirt is from the following Sassy Fashionista Closet (and badly needs a wash.) Where are the other skirts from? I like the glittery one at the top left :)

Speaking of this closet, I have the pink bodysuit, the fur jacket and the dress (it was on my Stacie doll.) I don't have that shirt that goes with the plaid skirt though! Boo! I think that I do have the complete set of the boots though which is awesome!

And these skirts too. The yellow is a top.


Dress in the middle from the Cutie Fashinoista Closet. The Help! with the other dresses!


This dress is from the Glam Fashionista Closet.

www.mjstoys.com
I have the other two dresses to this closet too. They were on dolls in the last couple of posts.

The Help! with this top and jacket!


A Belle dress for sure!


The Help! Cute tops and leggings.


I believe the fur boa is from the Glam Fashionista Closet above. The pink hat is from Magic Snow Sophina. Not sure about the blue hat. The scarf has a tag that says "Spin Master" so it might be from a Liv doll?


And the last piece of clothing. The little Barbie nightgown for your dollie!


Also included in the lot of dolls and clothes are a doggie and a monkey. Where from?


The doggie's head and tail goes down.


This girl had a ton of fun with Fashionista clothes it seems like! I believe that I will have a ton of fun too. I have a fabulous Swappin' Styles head with pink hair that would go perfect with some of the Sassy closet.

I'll have a post with some of these clothes on dolls and of course, a post about my new additions including the Vespa scooter!

Until then!
