Curvy Fashionistas So Sporty giftset, review

I've actually had the curvy barbie So Sporty fashionista giftset for a while, and only just now opened her. I liked the way she looked in the promos, but for some reason wasn't really digging her in person. until I let her out of the box.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: new barbie body type, fashions fit well

The Bad: no articulation, weird shoes?

The Verdict: if you like the new curvy fashionista barbies, the So Sporty giftset is worth picking up. she's a pretty doll, that comes with extra fashions.

The Verdict: unless you're in love with her face, or a fashionista completionist, the Pizza Pizzazz petite giftset is probably skippable.

happy 2017!

first of all, happy new year everyone. and also huge apologies to anyone who follows my blog here. I know I've been MIA for quite some time. over the coming weeks you're probably going to be spammed to death with old posts that I'm finally getting around to finishing. when my camera broke over the summer I kind of got frustrated with collecting, so I've got a lot of catching up to do!
