Found at Walmart for $7.94 this doll replaces the smudged face doll received from TheBarbieCollection, which was returned to them for credit.
|Denim pants and sleeveless jacket found at Walmart for $2.24 each.|
These two denim separates were purchased from Walmart on the same day the replacement doll was purchased, a floral patterned jeans and vest. The plan had been to use these for this doll's redress. I am not sure which Barbie the pants were cut to fit but even on So in Style Chandra (seen next), the hip area has a loose fit. They swallowed the Fashionista Barbie and I did not bother to photograph how foolish she looked wearing them.

|This is the redress we settled on initially.|
In the above photo, the Fashionista wears what Chandra had been wearing (minus the shoes). It is a Sparkle Girlz fashion. She wears her original tan sandals, muted gold earrings, and turquoise shoulder bag.
She needs a name, but I am not good at remembering names unless they were chosen by the manufacturer or unless the doll reminds me of someone. She does remind me of a young child that was my son's babysitter, but that was over 30 years ago and I cannot recall her name other than the fact that it began with a K. I am open for name suggestions.
Update 5:40 a.m.
After the original publication of this post, I decided I did not really like the way her body looked in the turquoise top and peach skirt. For some reason the fashion itself seemed to make her head appear over sized. I redressed her a second time in another Sparkle Girlz fashion that better complements her head/body proportions.
