An all natural look

Keyword: Barbie, afro

A group in Georgia plans to give out Barbie dolls this Christmas, but it’s not about the gift.  Their plan is to help young girls to feel more self-acceptance and self esteem. Candace McBride is a member of the African-American natural-hair group and will be coordinating the giveaway. She claims that it is hard to find dolls that are natural looking (it’s so very true, and so very sad). Online she found out how to take a Barbie doll and give her natural looking curls by using boiling water and pipe cleaners. ”We wanted to show the girls that basically, it’s OK the way God made you,” said member Jennifer Henderson. The message they are trying to give to young African-American girls, is to embrace their hair the way it is. Their goal is to make 40 dolls and while that doesn’t sound like a lot, think of the impact it will have on those 40 lucky little girls on Christmas morning.

Maybe they can only giveaway 39 and send the last one this way so I can add it to my Barbie collection? ;)

We think what this group is doing is wonderful. I embrace all hair types…long, short, thick, thin, orange, black, curly, straight. Everyone’s hair is beautiful in it’s own way!

 

I hope you enjoyed this Barbie filled day!  If you have any other cool Barbie style ideas, please don’t hesitate to send them our way!!

You don’t have to go to Never Never Land to rock a Peter Pan collar!

Keywords: peter pan, collars

Peter Pan collars have been coming in and out of fashion for years, but they really made a comeback this fall, and are here to stay for Spring. The Spring 2012 fashion shows of Preen and Carven proved that the trend is not going anywhere. These adorable frocks are perfectly wearable versions of the mod motif. The adorable leopard collar from Etsy is a great way to update an old dress or top and stay on top of the trend.

2. Leopard collar
