Mail Order Item and Some Research

Two things before I cut to the chase in this post. Laundry day for Barbie! Told you all I was going to. :)

Second. Last night I was searching Google images for the 2005 Cali Girl Christie so I could find pics of the shorts she wears with the top I have. I was not getting success so I added the word "aloha" in the search (since her shirt has Hawaiian flowers on it.) Whatever you do, DON'T add aloha to the search. Just. don't. do. it. (Apparently there is a porn star who's name is Aloha Christie. Yeah. No.)

Okay! Onto more friendly matters!

So I mentioned that I ordered a couple things and I got package one of two today. (My friend has the other package so I have to wait for that one.) But this one came to my house.

Remember Working Woman Barbie wearing the Day to Night jacket?

Remember when I found one Day to Night shoe at the thrift store?

Well, here is my purchase!


It's a little blurry but you get the idea.
Day to Night Barbie accessories! When I found the Day to Night shoe at the thrift store, I had not yet won this auction. I was secretly hoping and wishing and praying that I would win this. And I did! You can't ask for a better selection of pieces than this.

And here she is!

It was a pain to get that briefcase to stay on her hand.
The briefcase is flawless. No scratches or scuffs. Just general marks from storage or light play.

What's in the briefcase? All the essentials needed for work and a night on the town.

Now, Night!

The shoes are the best part.

And her top has very little snags and strings that have come undone. This type of fabric is so notorious for snagging with play.

And the super cute purse.

Oh my goodness, I am in love! She definitely ranks up there with my favourite Barbies of all time. I am so super excited with how this doll fits the 1984 Day to Night Set.

It is by no means complete yet. Still need some day items: the hat, scarf and purse. On eBay I saw a few hats by themselves so I think I'll wait. I mainly wanted the skirt and shoe. How lucky that I had one shoe from the thrift store! But completing outfits is one of my favorite things about buying Barbies!

The seller also threw in some extra goodies. What a nice seller!

Didn't Barbie have some Lee Jeans fashions? This must be where the bag came from.

I also did a little research on Liv dolls and the doll that I left behind at the thrift store was a Liv. Here she is.
She is the Sophie Liv Nature Doll. If she's there I'll pick her up for the articulated body. (She also had a wig.)

And just by chance I ran across this outfit on a Liv doll eBay page.
It's a Liv Model Muse Fashion. So I have that complete outfit. I kind of like the leggings. I have a cute pair of purple boots but they don't seem to fit a Barbie. Darn, they would look cute with this outfit.

Until next time!
