|Chic doll rescued from thrift store for $2.99|
When found she wore a Barbie-tagged striped top and leatherette riding pants. Her hair was a mess.
I restyled her as shown above: combed her hair and dressed her in a Target-exclusive Artsy fashion. The fuchsia in the dress matches her molded-on stud earrings. The shoes and matching purse are from a Barbie Fashionistas accessory pack.

This newer-to-me one has a closed mouth while the other Chic doll, found a few weeks ago, has an open mouth with painted teeth. That one has jointed knees and a twist and turn waist. This latest one has a swivel waist only. Both are very lovely.
After meeting, they engaged in the following brief conversation:
Chic 1: So glad she stopped by the thrift store and didn't leave you there.
Chic 2: So am I. I was a little worried, though. When I heard her ask a nearby shopper what the 50% off color of the week was, knowing my blue tag was not the color, I thought she was going to leave me there! I had the sense then that she didn't want to pay $2.99 for me. She examined me for what seemed like forever through the plastic baggie before finally taking me to the register. Girl, I was so relieved.
