2018 National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention dolls by Carlyle Nuera

July 15, 2018

I should have worded the title like this: HINT HINT I want these dolls as my push presents. Hahahahahahahahaha.

Anyway, by the looks of it, I am in the monority here, but I love the 2 convention dolls. Actually I usually like just one of them, rarely both, and these two are the kind of dolls that I can’t decide which is more beautiful.


People have argued that Carlyle makes Barbie hip and trendy, but not elegant. As much as I love haute couture and embroidery (I come from a country where embroidery is highly valued. Check out Bihor vs Dior), I also love the new idea of elegance. The hip, chic, cool and minimalistic idea of what elegance can be so these dolls are right up my alley.

Congrats to any of the lucky ones that have them and enjoy them. You might feel my envy coming though from right across the ocean. :))
