Live Love Laugh Finally!

Stock photo, Barbie Live Love Laugh  (LLL) tank top

After checking two different Walmart stores on multiple occasions, I finally found and purchased the Barbie Live Love Laugh tank top. There was only one in stock at the time.



As shown in my image above, I purchased a separate pink shirt that has patent leather sleeves, pocket, and trim at neck.  A third fashion piece is a pink and black skirt.  They were $2.44 each.

There were also two different shoe accessory packs priced the same as the LLL top, which I purchased for the flat shoes they include.
This accessory pack contains a lavender shoulder bag, lavender high-heels, shiny silver choker, aqua head band and bracelet, and gray oxfords

A dark pink purse and matching, flat slip-on shoes; dark pink and yellow necklace, white high heels, yellow bracelet, and white headband are in this accessory pack. 

Goddess, whose new full name is Goddess Emerald*, is wearing the Live Love Laugh top with black leggings (borrowed from Rocawear Grace).  Black sandals cover her feet.

Here she mixes the top and leggings with silver flats and matching purse.

The leggings are now worn with her new pink top with black patent-leather trim.  The kitten-face shoulder bag, cat ears headband and black flats are nice complements.

The pink top and black leggings are worn with pink flats.

The pink top is now paired with the pink and black skirt.  A pink purse and pink flats are added.

Finally, Goddess Emerald exchanged the pink flats for a pair of black ones to complete the look of the pink and black top and skirt ensemble.


*During the 13 hours spent at the ER with a family member recently, I met a delightfully precocious, overly-friendly-with-strangers, 2-year-old (going on 22) whose name is Emerald, Emmy for short. She was there for a minor head injury, but according to her, "I busted my head open in my daddy's car."  She had a visibly swollen area on her forehead, but no open wound.  Her rightfully concerned, mother brought her into the ER to have it examined.  Based on Emmy's behavior, I could tell the bump on the head did not set her back one iota.  She talked from the time she arrived until shortly before an exam room was available.  Her talking ceased only because she fell asleep around 2 a.m.  Because Emmy (who favors the little girl here) has a complexion similar to Goddess', I changed the doll's name to Goddess Emerald.

  1. That's a beautiful story about little Emmy. I think she's going to go far in life. Hope your family member is ok.

    I never see those fashion packs at any of the toy stores I go to. I don't live anywhere near a Walmart. I have found some great stuff at thrift stores, though.

    1. Thanks, Phyllis! We enjoyed the quick photo shoot. Initially, I was not going to try the tops and skirts on Goddess Emerald, but once I was into the post, I decided I really needed to (in spite of how I was feeling).

    1. Thank you, Linda! I am glad you enjoyed Emmy's story. Sweet girl.

      I am sure you understand how good it feels to be able to remove something from a want list.

  5. The accessories are very nice. I love the story about Emerald. She sounds like an adorable little girl. I just bought my second Live, Love, Laugh shirt. I don't know why I needed two. I guess a photo shoot with two matching girls is in order as I keep buying that pair of jeans too.

    1. I haven't seen the jeans locally. If I do, I will snatch up a couple of pairs, too. Had there between two live, love, and laugh tops, I would have purchased two of those two.

      Your plan for a photo shoot with matching girls sounds wonderful.

  9. Finally is right! I'm happy to see you got your shirt. I found one about a week ago. There was only one in my store, too. Goddess Emerald looks great in all her outfits. Little Emerald sounded like a delightful little woman, I mean girl. Lol.

    1. I'm glad you were able to find the LLL top, too, Vanessa. I look forward to seeing it on one of your dolls.

      Emmy was definitely a jewel of a 2-1/2-year-old, very wise beyond her years.
