St. Patrick’s Day is upon us once again, and Summer, Raquelle, and Midge are more than ready to hit a pub and get some green beer!
The top, pants and shrug from Charm Girls/Secret Spells Kayla (http://www.amazon.com/Barbie-Kayla-Secret-Spells-Wiccan/dp/B000P0RCVU/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1426626528&sr=1-1&keywords=secret+spells+kayla) suit Summer’s athleticism perfectly.
Her shoes (from a shoe pack my mom got as a free gift after making an Amazon order; the pack is still available on Amazon for $1.82: http://www.amazon.com/Pairs-Shoes-Barbie-Dolls-Exactly/dp/B008BWZJ32/ref=pd_rhf_se_s_cp_4_D56X?ie=UTF8&refRID=0C25FA5HEA2S20H6NGYG) look like vines (too bad they’re not shamrocks!) that formed themselves around her feet and up her calves.
Raquelle goes for glam in a green dress from a 10-dress pack billed as “dresses that dazzle!” (This isn’t the pack I own, but it’s similar: http://www.amazon.com/BARBIE-Exclusive-FASHIONS-Dresses-Accessories/dp/B000PEQGIG/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1426626912&sr=1-1&keywords=barbie+dresses+that+dazzle+pack) that I’ve owned since approximately 2003. Ever the diva, she pairs it with sexy boots from DC Comics’ Poison Ivy (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Dtoys-and-games&field-keywords=poison+ivy+barbie&rh=n%3A165793011%2Ck%3Apoison+ivy+barbie).
Midge’s retro sensibilities led her to this sleek green sweater, skirt and purse from Kari Michell (sometimes known as Kari Mitchell), a clone doll I found at Big Lots and got for Christmas (if you follow this link, the green set is the fourth photo shown: http://www.amazon.com/Mitchell-Designers-Choice-Collection-Accessories/dp/B00CJWNHNY/ref=sr_1_5?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1426627695&sr=1-5&keywords=kari+michell). Neon green high heels keep retro chic from crossing over to drab.
I think Raquelle was right earlier-any pub these ladies walk into tonight, guys should be buying their green beer for them!
May the luck of the Irish be with you!
Notes: These dolls have been identified in my previous post, “Barbie and Time.” No, Summer isn’t standing on another doll-she’s displaying her shoe by propping her foot on The Barbie Chronicles, a collection of essays compiled by Yona Zeldis McDonough in 1999 in honor of Barbie’s 40th anniversary.
