Trench Setter coat by designer Robert Best for Silkstone Barbie

Is not this the true romantic feeling—not to desire to escape life, but to prevent life from escaping you?” — Thomas Wolfe

This photo is one of my favorite setups for Barbie diorama; I love the classic elegance of black and whites with pops of color. Plus, this setup has kind of a James Bond type vibe that is kinda cool.


Trench Setter coat for Silkstone Barbie by Mattel has the Robert Best designer label inside (not shown, didn’t think to photograph it at the time, oops). The black dress and coat hanging in the closet are handmade specifically for Silkstone Barbie. (Not by me, alas, I wish I could sew that well.)

The little brooch on the black coat is from the Silkstone Continental Holiday set. The little mesh gloves on the shelf are from the Silkstone Luciana doll.

The quotes on this and a lot of these doll posts are grabbed at random; am adding them as reminders that I need to write about this particular doll/dress. 


I have so many photos I need to just get them up here so I can delete them from my computer files. I will add info later!
