When I was Young... I Wanted to be Barbie.

True story. I loved my Barbie dolls when I was a little girl. I was always jealous because Barbie had great clothes and shoes, and and awesome car too. 

I also remember when I first got to start picking out my own clothes. I was in second grade, and I had been begging my mother to let me choose my own clothes for quite some time. Finally I got that freedom...but boy did I make some mistakes! I think my mother would have been much happier if she could have bought me some clothes that were meant to mix and match well. 

Well, the new Barbie Clothing line does just that... fun items that are easy to mix and match! You don't have to worry that your daughter will come out of her room wearing plaid pants with a flower print shirt..LOL (yes, yes, that was me). 

My daughter is very girly in many ways. She LOVES to choose her outfit, and she will even match her pacifier to her outfit! She doesn't always make perfect choices, but she sure loves to dress herself. 

The new Barbie Clothing line is available from Kmart and available in 2T-5T...perfect for that little girl who is learning to be independent! We received two adorable outfits from the Barbie Clothing line to try out.

Annabelle will be two in October, and she just started wearing 2T clothing. We were sent a 2T outfit, and a 3T outfit. These outfits seem to run small, and both fit her very well. I was pretty surprised! So, if you plan on purchasing these for a special princess, I would recommend having her try them on before buying if possible.

Annabelle loved the outfits. She was very drawn to the black sparkly skirt and the frilly pink shirt. Both outfits looked absolutely adorable on her, and she even made her own outfit out of the pieces we received.

Outfit #2
"I'm Twirling!"

Annabelle's Choice-
What do you want me to do?

Annabelle really liked the leggings, but she liked the skirt, too...so she wore them both!

I loved that the skirt had shorts underneath, since little ladies aren't always so lady-like!

Here is our little fashion show video. Annabelle loved dressing up, but she thought that the only way to show off her style was to spin... so we took some still pictures so you all can see the outfits better but you'll see her twirl at the end!

Since the clothing seemed to run a bit small, Annabelle did need some help getting dressed. She still really enjoyed wearing the clothing and I think she looked so adorable! We love the TuTu Dress and Leggings! I love that the Barbie clothing allows little girls to embrace their independence and allows for them to have choice, while still making sure that the girls look great.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Barbie Clothing. I received a sample package to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
