The Year of Haute Couture - August

Well, aren't you all proud of me? I have this post up ON TIME for the 1st day of August. :) (Well, I cheated a little and wrote the post early) but I got it up on time and that is what counts! :D

Okay, onto the new Robert Best creation from his 2013 Haute Couture Barbie calendar. He is the master of Haute Couture and this dress, oh yes, haute couture indeed!

Has it been blistering hot where you live? Yep, here too. So this dress is keeping Barbie cool and fresh.

August - Market Day Barbie (2008)

She is so summer fresh in this short floral print dress with matching hat. She has her straw bag filled with goodies from the market (if you look close enough she has French Bread, flowers, and a bottle of champagne, perfect for a date with Ken!) And the pearls really top off the look. They are so elegant.

Does this Barbie remind you of an earlier version of Barbie going to the market?
The real doll? Yes please!

Oh she is cute! I love the hair and hat the best I think. The bubble skirt is also super cute. This is such a cute doll. Perfect for the month of August! Oh goodness, I just can't get over how cute she is.

She was released as a Gold Label doll in 2005.

From the Barbie Collector Website:

"Barbie® doll looks ready for a picnic in this adorable green floral print bubble dress. A chic straw hat sits atop ash blond hair. Matching sling back sandals and a faux pearl necklace complete the doll’s spring look. And no picnic would be complete without bread, flowers, and a bottle of bubbly, which Barbie® “carries” in an adorable straw tote bag."

Well, what do you think of Market Day Barbie? So adorable.

Until next time!
