So, today I took a quick tour on blogspot and saw William's post about the new Stardoll. Now, I said before these dolls didn't interest me but I spoke too soon. The girl William ended up purchasing, I had not seen before and she is a beauty! That's what started it all! I then went searching through some flickr photos because I was dying to see a better picture of the AA Stardoll...and there she was!
Immediately, I called my local TRU to see if they had them in stock...particularly the AA doll. My local TRU is a little slow and they're not very good at stocking AA Barbies so I was quietly hoping the clerk would come back on the line and tell me No...they didn't have them. Well, not only did they have them but they had this lovely girl in stock (click flickr link below) and she was the only one left, at least that's what the clerk said. I decided it was a sign from above...yeah right! I ended up driving down there and placing her on layaway, you know...as sort of a tactic to keep me from buying anything else. It worked! I brought in just enough cash to put her on layaway and I'm giving myself a couple weeks to bring her home. Her name will be Piper Davis. I'm still working out the details of who she'll be related to but I do have a (new) guy in mind for her.
You guys, this girl is gorgeous!! She reminds me of Solange...Beyonce's sister. I will say this, if any of you are considering purchasing a Stardoll...please try NOT to purchase online. Why? Well, I ventured over to take a peak at the other Stardolls and lets just say the factory isn't consistent with painting these girls. One of them looked like she was giving me the stink eye! Each girl looked slightly different from her twin. I also noticed another AA doll and her face paint was a little off compared to the one I purchased. So, if you can pick one up you won't get one with a crazy face. Oh, I placed the AA next to an Artsy and the complexion is a good match.
Anyway, since there aren't a whole lot of photos around of this girl, below you'll find a link to a flickr account with really nice pics of her.
Ok, so I'm done buying more Barbies? Notice the question mark. Ugh, is there a docta in da house?!
