I was planning this post for Saturday, but I have to work on Saturdays now so today is the day. Seems like I've been hitting Barbie clothes hard lately! The purchase of this outfit came from my attempts to find some Cut 'n' Style Barbie outfits. Y'all remember my Cut 'n' Style girl, Marie?
like the Skipper outfit, but in truth it has three pieces (dress, ribboned thing, and purple thing ) plus shoes. The purple thing turned out to be a doll-sized hairband, but I'm going to start with the dress...romper...whatever this thing is.
Now to the part that has bows.
Then of course, there's these shoes.
Shani's yellow shoes and as Dee-Dee's orange shoes, but they're yet another color that I neither have owned nor have seen before: magenta. Once again these shoes wouldn't match a thing about the outfit, but the paint is there to tie them in.
Given the bulk and the garish colors of the child-sized hairband, I have a suspicion that Marie is going to look hilarious in this. And...
asymmetrical. Don't click that link if you have epilepsy, by the way.
Regarding the small purple hairband, I was concerned that it wouldn't look as nice on Marie as it does in the ample hair of the Totally Hair models. As it turned out, I needn't have worried. Not only does the band look cute perched on the side of Marie's head, but the purple looks pretty with Marie's hair.
Mama's post-op went well; her doctor says that her new joint is slowly ossifying and that she should be as good as new in a few weeks. She is to continue physical therapy, and Doctor wants her to drink two cups of milk a day. Mama hates milk, LOL. I bought some shredded wheat and some chocolate syrup to make the milk a bit more palatable for both of us, since I am admittedly not a big milk fan either.
