I'm not into the Holiday ladies because the prices are ridiculous and the dresses are never as fabulous as the designers think they are. HOWEVER, the molds are usually fantastic and this AA model is no exception. She is gorgeous. The makeup up close is rather thick and over the top, but she is working it. If I had willy nilly money, I would buy this face - but I don't, so I wont. Still, just lovely.
$29.99 (was $2 cheaper at ToysRU)
They only had two sets of the Dreamhouse pairs; Barbie & Midge and Raquelle & Summer. I don't know if the other girls are going to be paired up and I still have yet to see Nikki in any stores. Although they look fine in the photos, their heads are HUGE! Almost My Scene sized. I'm completely side-eyeing Barbie's garish necklace, but I love everything they are doing with Midge in this line.
I also love the Raquelle & Summer set! I like what they are wearing, the coffee accessories, the bags - just the whole vibe they are giving off. Even Raquelle's smile doesn't seem as smirky as the first version did. It's more subtle. Summer looks great too. I seriously doubt these will make it to clearance but if they do, I'll be all over them.
I'm not digging this. It's so fussy and kitchy. You cant see much of the accessories from this photo, but they were actually very nice and plentiful. I guess I just don't like the vending machine aspect. The photo on the back of the box gives a better idea of what it looks like.
Of course, I wont be buying any of these things, but from a quality standpoint, good job Mattel.
