Christmas Sweater Ornaments @ Christopher and Banks

Christmas Sweater Ornaments fit Barbie and Other Playscale Dolls
Regularly priced $7.95 each, these five Christmas sweater ornaments are currently on sale at Christopher and Banks for 2 for $6.

I ordered four of the five Christmas sweater ornaments that are offered this year.

When I ordered the four I received yesterday, they were $4.77 each.  At the time I ordered, shipping was free.

Like the ones C&B offered last year, these sweater ornaments are attached to a lightweight wire hanger which is removable.  The only one with a hood is the Love Joy Peace ornament with tartan plaid mock shirt at hemline.  "2016" is embroidered on back of each.  They should work as well as last year's for playscale dolls with thinner bodies, like ModelMuse.

Hurry to the site before the sale ends and/or before they sell out!

More Sparkle Girlz Fashions

Sparkle Girlz fashions

I was in Walmart recently where I checked the doll aisle to see if anything new in Sparkle Girlz' fashions was on the shelf.  This store was nicely stocked, but I only found the above four fashions of interest.  Individual photos follow:

Sleeveless top with Aztec print and fringe hem is paired with dark blue denim leggings with a pink handbag as an accessory.

This one includes a navy blue smock top with colorful V-shaped design at neckline, white leggings and pink high-heel shoes.  (In a recent post by Fashion Dolls at Van's Doll Treasures, Danielle wore this as a post-pregnancy fashion.)

Multicolored top with choker neckline, paint-splashed short-shorts, and a hot pink handbag are attached to this Sparkle Girlz fashion card.

The fourth fashion is a teal blue and black dress with black high heel shoes.
I have no immediate plans to use these or the last two Sparkle Girlz fashions purchased, but it's always good to have them on hand when a redress is desired.  Their price of less than $2 each is part of their appeal.

Black Dolls Matter®

Black Dolls Matter® playscale size T-shirts arrived well presented on white card stock inside a clear resealable envelop. 

When I retrieved the padded envelop with Black Dolls Matter written on the first line of the return address, I knew it was time for at least a couple of quick doll redresses (aka doll play).  I dropped the other letter mail onto the kitchen table and immediately went to the doll room.

Tall Barbie poses with the Black Dolls Matter® (BDM) T-shirt she chose to wear, which has pink lettering.

Barbie Fashionista #33, one of the tall Barbies, has been here since early summer patiently waiting to be deboxed and redressed.  Neither of us liked her floral screen-printed T-shirt and we both knew one of these BDM T-shirts would be much better and make a statement as well.

Happy to be deboxed and partially redressed, #33 had her ears pierced.  She wears a new pair of gold tone hoops with her new T-shirt, original denim shorts and black booties.

Let's take a close-up look at the front and back of the T-shirt:

Black Dolls Matter is printed on the front with a flower as the "o" in Dolls.  The T-shirts are black with three colors available for the lettering: white, pink or purple.

They are very well made of Spandex material with surged edges and Velcro closure in back.  The back closure makes putting on and taking off much easier than pulling over the doll's head (no worries about disturbing hairstyles).  Where to buy information is provided at the end of this post.

Because the fabric stretches, curvy Barbies can wear these, too!  Emoji Barbie chose the one with white lettering, which is worn over her original dress.  She accessorized the look with #33's white wristwatch.

Making fashion and doll-market-statements, both dolls posed together for a final photo.

Where to Buy
Among other items, in a choice of three colors for lettering (white, pink or purple) Black Dolls Matter® T-shirts can be purchased for $5 each from the Black Dolls Matter® Etsy shop.  Shipping is extra.
