A Barbie’s Best Friend

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved dresses and dress-up, and all the girliness in between. My love for Barbie started early with a collection of dolls, mini outfits, shoes and accessories ~ all carefully stored in a round red patent leather zip-around carrying case, with a handy handle for me to tote from room to room.

Today I still appreciate Barbie’s style, especially in the dreamy drawings of Robert Best.  The Barbie designer’s classic and stylish sketches are brimming with lovely and ladylike accoutrements: pretty purses, piles of pearls, hair ribbons, gloves and beautiful bows.

Need a treat for the girly-girls in your life? The Barbie Fashion Model Collection Calendar will pretty up any nest…

For chic correspondence, you can charm your pen pals with love notes on Barbie note cards

And purse notes are the perfect place to pen jolly jottings and merry musings.

What better reason to pile on the pretty than the holidays? ‘Tis the season for one of my favorite creations by Mr. Best ~ if only I could pick it up off the page and put it on I would!  Le sigh. Such a frosty white frock and Hollyberry-red sash & bows belongs under the mistletoe!

Wishing you a holiday dressed up in sparkle and delight!
