In praise of (Part I)

Not only do I love dolls, but I love finding beautiful clothes for them and doing some fashion photography. Today I’m posting about one of my favourite Etsy shops, called GrizzlyCreek. Here’s a few of the beautiful dresses I’ve purchased there.

Steffi is a budget version of Barbie sold here in the UK. Budget or not, she gets a touch of class in this cute design.
Salynda is a Barbie Basics doll, always looking elegant and cool. I love her face and this gorgeous flowered dress.
Rebeca is also adorned with flowers in this beautiful dress. She’s originally a Barbie City Shine doll, but needed something new for the summer months. I thought this dress matched her lipstick quite well.
I love the fact that Midge has moveable joints so she can pose. These are her original shoes, really set off by this fabulous and fun dress.
Michelle, named for the elegant FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, is one of my most beautiful dolls. I think her facial sculpt is absolutely stunning. She came in a gold striped dress originally and has beautiful gold shoes, so this dress was perfect for her.


Luna 1
Luna has always been difficult to dress because she has such overpowering eyes. I find that something subtle like this dress, with its muted tones, works very well.
Merida is named for the heroine of the film “Brave,” with whom she shares a head of gorgeous ginger curls. This beautiful daffodil dress sets off her ginger hair perfectly.
I also found dressing Ivana to be a bit challenging. She’s so pale with such pale hair that she easily gets lost behind the dress. She came dressed in grey and black originally. I think this green dress, reminiscent of a deep forest, works perfectly for her.
Cho (and Luna) are named for Harry Potter characters. They have certainly grown up! Here’s Cho in a stunning bamboo inspired dress with matching shoes.
Charlotte in blue
Finally, here’s Charlotte in a deep blue dress. The pattern reminds me of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. She’s another Barbie Basics doll.

Finally, beautiful dolls require beautiful clothes. If you like these, why not visit Debbie Roney’s shop on Etsy?

  1. Have to check out Etsy, love these dresses! I wonder if you swapped the star dress for the green one and add a belt wouldn’t Charlotte’s eyes pick up the color and pop. Ivana could certainly pull off the starry blue dress w/o letting it out shine her, she’s a stunner.I love that I am just now discovering your lovely models/blog..I would go broke trying to find them all but a few are finding new identities w/ me.Love Your Blog!

    • Thank you so much! I’ve swapped several of those dresses between dolls. Those are excellent suggestions! At the moment they are all dressed for autumn and I’ll post some pictures soon as well as the next episode.
