My Fashion Queen Barbie arrived today and I had to dress her up and take photos of her. I need to touch up her hair but the rest of her paint is great (the black on her eyes – eyeliner/eyelashes – looks like it’s missing paint in this shot but it’s just highlights).
She’s wearing a repro Dinner at Eight set which I just knew would look fabulous on her. I’m thinking of calling her Nancy but I’m not settled yet.
I’ve wanted one of these ever since I was about 10 and would spend ages looking through this Barbie book my sister gave to me – the FQ Barbie was always appealing to me, though I think it may have been her case (which I don’t have) that I might have liked the best because of the cute illustrations on it.
She’s also my first vintage era Barbie (I’ve got Midge, Skipper, Skooter, Ken but this is the first actual Barbie I’ve acquired, though I do have some mod Barbies.)
