For the Saturday of the convention, I decided to wear pink on pink with a dash of red, white and gold. I grew up during the Pink Box era of Barbie so, while not all or maybe even most of Barbie's outfits were pink, it was the colour most associated with her, so it seemed appropriate to wear pink over the weekend. Plus, it's my favourite colour.
Accesory details, including the only sweater clips I own and my vintage valentine brooch.
Some of the competition entries for the day. This category was vintage Barbie - I voted for the Barbie in the electric blue coat. My little Fluff doll in her green dress is just next to her. She didn't win but I did win one of the raffles!
And here is what I won! A repro Barbie in a custom made outfit by one of the women in the club, inspired by this vintage Barbie outfit. She is so lovely and I'm so chuffed that I won her. I'll have to find a nice place to display her.
I was attracted by her red hair and the paisley fabric.
The jacket is even lined! The detail is just gorgeous, really.
Hopefully you aren't all getting sick of reading about dolls because there is one more convention post to go! (But there will be a pure outfit post in between this one and the next post with dolls).
