Grabbed the last Fashionistas shoe pack I was missing.

I needed those gold flat sandals.  I saw one last package of them, and bought it.  I don't know what I'll do with periwinkle blue high heel high tops.  That purse is impressively large and well molded.

Two Clone Fashions

Here's the hipster kitty fashion from Sparkle Girls.  I'm genuinely impressed by the stitching on the top.  Unfortunately, it's too small to completely close in the back, and the right shoulder had a hole blown in it by the plastic tag.

Here it is on my current favorite Barbie Fashionista.

Here's the Dollar Tree fashion.  Most of these had sold before I went back, I was only able to get one with poor top stitching on the shirt hem.  I'll try to fix that myself eventually.

Here it is on a doll.  The pants barely fit, the fit problems with both of these may be the new Barbie body.

I mix them up.

New Sparkle Girlz fashion assortment part 2

Here is the second part.

First, here's the one I did buy, a hipster glasses cat crop top.  The print appears to just be a decal instead of screen print, but it's decent quality.  The stitching on this one was as decent, or even better, than some Mattel.

Now, to the others.  Here's my favorite polyester print on a cocktail dress.  The top has a net overlay, too bad the raspberry pink color doesn't really go with the print.

Here's the print worked into another dress.

This mini dress might be made from another sector of the same print, I don't know.

Here's a cute 1990's version of 1960's fashion.  I may have to crawl back and buy this next week.  I love that skirt.

It's a shame this skirt wasn't the same fabric front and back.  I would have bought it.

Here's the last of them.  There were a few other styles in the display that were either duplicates of past styles, or leftovers crammed in by a Walmart employee.

New Sparkle Girls fashion assortment part 1

There's a new Sparkle Girls assortment at Walmart, I think they're slightly better quality than the last few.

Here's an orange dress I liked.  It's even lined in a matching color.

This sleeveless top is also pretty stylish for a clone.

I liked this top, unfortunately the top stitching was messy.

Here's the same set with better stitching, but different pattern placement.

I also like these floral stretch pants.

Here's a mini dress with a blue paint smear print.

I would have purchased both of these, but I know polyester knit is often torn under those plastic tags.

Here are some others.

Passed on Fashionistas #30 "Pink & White Pizzazz" tall Asian

I finally found one with centered eyes, but still wasn't feeling it.  I dislike the wall-eyed Barbie dolls, especially when the eyes are sliding way to the side of the head.  I can tolerate it on Monster High, because they're intentionally a bit grotesque.  The prototype avoided it.  Anyway, I guess the doll itself is cute enough.  I'll wait for another release of this mold.  They recycle everything these days, so it's just a waiting game.
