“City Chic Suit” Silkstone Barbie, a Barbie Fashion Model Collection Exclusive for 2016. [img source: X]

I was smitten by this lady when I saw the first small preview pics from one of the dolly vendor emails I got. She’s gorgeous, IMO–AND!!!!–she’s got the new poseable Silkstone body!

the one in the autographed box above was auctioned last month’s Grant-a-Wish Foundation convention.

Sadly, when I was looking for better pics of her, I came across a couple of blogs from doll collectors in Europe, both of whom declared she was the “ugliest ever”. 

I “wonder” why they’d think that.

Soda Shop Barbie® Doll Is the First 2016 BFC™ Doll!

This vintage-look doll takes you back to a sweeter time in small-town America, a beloved hangout for teens and a great place to take a first date! Barbie doll’s polka dot blouse and pink poodle-skirt jumper perfectly capture the signature style of the era. As with the first dolls in the collection (Cherry Pie Picnic™ Barbie Doll and Homecoming Queen™ Barbie Doll) Soda Shop Barbie Doll comes with her own finely detailed accessories - a “sundae,” spoons, and placemats!
