When we visited Aunt Kay a few weeks ago, I literally took hundreds of pictures of her amazing Barbie collection. Rather than overwhelm you with them all at once, I decided to just feature a few of them at a time over the next few months. One of the “mini” collections Kay has is the Barbie’s that are inspired by fashion designers that are part of popular culture. These are the Barbie’s my daughter Megan loves and has started collecting.
This is the Gold Label Juicy Couture Beverly Hills G&P set from 2008. This set features dolls that are tiny replicas of Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, the designers and co-founders of the sensational Juicy Couture fashion empire. There is also a Juicy Couture set from 2004 that is very pink and green.
Kay’s Dooney and Bourke Barbie from 2006 is no longer in her box. Kay takes lots of her dolls out of the boxes and says sometimes that’s when you find the fun little extras you didn’t know they came with. The Dooney and Bourke Barbie has her signature D&B purse, casual chic fashion and a shopping bag, too. She is a Pink Label Barbie which means she is a little less expensive than the Gold Labeled Juicy Couture set.
There is something I like about this doll’s face – which is why I go a close up on her.
Anyone who knows my daughter Megan, knows she loves her M.A.C. cosmetics! The MAC Loves Barbie Gold Label doll came out in 2007 and you could purchase it at the M.A.C. cosmetics store. I just had to take pictures of this blondie for Megan.
This is a close up of the make up case she came with and a MAC Loves Barbie lipstick they sold at the same time.
For Christmas this year Megan asked to start her own Designer Barbie collection. The first one in her collection is this Lilly Pulitzer Barbie and Stacie Gift Set from 2005 that is just too cute. Also on her list was the Kate Spade Barbie and I know she wants both of the Juicy Couture sets.
More Barbie collection photos to come soon! I hope you enjoyed these.
