A 2015 treasure! Team Glam Fashionistas Barbie

I broke my laptop screen, and now can only post once a week from the library.  Maybe I should get a new laptop before more dolls... maybe not.

Fashionistas Team Glam was one of the only playline dolls I genuinely anticipated the release of, I'm glad I was able to get her.  I grabbed her a few days after Black Friday, Walmart had just put out several cases.  Most had crooked eyes, I got my pick of the litter.

I'm not too crazy about the fashion, but the color does compliment her.  Unfortunately, not only does the dress not have an opening in the back, the right arm is a scissor joint despite outwardly appearing to be a ball joint.  I haven't followed the new line, the lack of articulation was a real disappointment to me.

The face is so beautiful, I can overlook the body, at least for now.  I'm a sucker for the Asha head, though it seems even larger than ever.  She really is a treasure, I like her as much as my old Fashion Fevers.  I need more flat foot shoes.

She's a great looking one! I really like the new Fashionistas from afar, but the lack of articulation has kept me from picking any of them up yet (I still love seeing other people's though, so thanks for sharing). :)

Good luck on getting a replacement laptop!

I think she's one of the cutest in that line. The lack of articulation is frustrating, though, I'll admit. At least there are cute purse and shoe packs out there right now for low prices.

Thanks, guys! I'm working on getting all the shoe packs, and have a few other recent Fashionistas NRFB on my dresser. I guess the only reason to debox them is to change the fashions.
