The other one would look nice on Courtney as well, but since Courtney already has a new outfit I gave it to Skipper. It's equally simple.
This ensemble is even simpler than the first one, just a dress and shoes.
Yes, that's a napkin that the dress is lying on. I liked it better than the plain brown box I've been using. The dress is an A-line dress in a lovely shade of bright red, with little white plastic buckles at the shoulders.
Likely if this were a real dress for a real human those buckles would be used to adjust the shoulder straps, but since this is a doll dress the buckles just sit there and look cute. Emblazoned on the chest of the dress is Skipper's name in white.
I always liked Skipper's logo when I was a kid. The "I" in her name was always dotted with a flower, and that inspired me to dot my "I's" with a little star, an idiosyncrasy that I still occasionally trot out for informal writings.
Like the other outfit, and like all outfits of this era, this dress closes with Velcro...the nonsnag kind that loses its tack over time.
The shoes are simple white platform sandals.
Skipper shoes of any sort are appreciated, as Skipper dolls have flatter feet than Barbie does. It's thus fairly tricky to find shoes that will fit. I haven't tried any of the new Fashionista shoes yet so there may be an off-chance that one of those pairs will fit, but I'm not betting on it.
Now, here's my old Skipper in her new outfit.
I love the simplicity of this outfit. It's very much like something I would've liked myself when I was a teenager. Now let's see how my three younger girls look together.
Not bad at all! What they had was nice; indeed, I love the clothes that Courtney came with, but it's wonderful to change things around a bit. As an added bonus, both Jenny and Costume Bash Jade can wear some of these Skipper clothes. Jenny might be able to wear some of these shoes too; I'll have to test that.
Ciao for now,
