Marvelous Mackies

Greetings all! I have a bit of time so I figured I should get a new post up STAT! Because you know how we all love to read about and see pictures of beautiful dolls.

And I have one today!

Remember back in December when I had my 25 days of Barbie posts. Two of the holiday dolls (2005 and 2006) were by Bob Mackie.

2005 Pink Edition

2005 Green Edition

The 2006 Doll

I mentioned in one (or probably all) of those posts that Bob Mackie is my favorite designer of Barbie. When I was a kid I somehow (probably from something my mom put a mail order in for) I got a catalogue of collector Barbie dolls. I was always fascinated with this Bob Mackie creation. The Moon Goddess.
Friends, don't you just LOVE her? She is so so so awesome. I had an obsession with moons and stars growing up which made me love this doll just that much more. 

Well, for Christmas one year my (wonderful, amazing, etc, etc...) mother got this Mackie for me. I am proud to present The Sterling Silver Rose.

This is a creation designed especially for Avon and came out in 2002.

Beauty. Glamour. Perfection. Mackie. SO Mackie! She is a true example of perfection.

I was always fascinated by and loved her purple up-do. It is regal elegance in its purest form.

The dress is purple velvet. To Die For!!

The Barbie Collector website has a much better picture of the doll and a cute little write-up about it. 

"Bob Mackie brings his signature sensational flair to Sterling Silver Rose Barbie® doll. Wearing a glamorous deep purple panne gown accented with a single silver and lavender fabric rose and a lovely lavender bustle, Barbie® is a true vision of distinctive beauty. Her platinum hair is highlighted with lavender hues and styled into an intricate updo. Dramatic face paint and long lavender gloves provide the sparkling finishing touches."
She is and always will be one of the dolls that I love the most. Everywhere I live she is proudly displayed (in her box of course :)

So all, do you have The Sterling Silver Rose? Or other Mackie dolls? Let me know in the comments! Bob Mackie has many dolls and it would be amazing to see which ones you have!

Until next time!
