Hello! It's time once again to share my collection and love for all things Barbie. This week I wanted to show you my Fashion Model Collection Barbie's.

In 2000 Mattel came out with the Silkstone Barbie. She is very reminiscent of the vintage Ponytail Barbie. Every year Mattel comes out with a line of Silkstone Barbie's.



This one is called "Highland Fling" Barbie in red plaid lingerie.


Like the original Barbie's the Silkstone's come in the rectangle style boxes.


The makeup is amazing on these Barbie's. I would love to have the entire line of Silkstone's!



This one is called "Suite Retreat". She is ready for a day at the spa!



I think her eye makeup makes her look mad but that's just my opinion!


This one is my favorite! I got her for Christmas last year. She is called "The Waitress".


Her cute pink outfit and turquoise eyeshadow is so lovely! I can picture her in an old 50's diner!




One of my newest finds was this pink thermos. I wish I new what little girl carried this to school!





I also wanted to show you a photo of one of the rarest Barbie dresses. It's hard to take just one dress and declare it the rarest because of there being one of a kind dresses that were rejects and other popular dresses that they tryed making with other fabrics. But generouly when asked what the rarest dress is you will be told "Gala Abend". It sold for over $13,000 dollars in 2003.


Lastly here are a couple more vintage commercials for you to enjoy!



Have a wonderful day, Lindsey
