Barbie Basics 1.5 model 3

Earlier we were commenting about the Lana Turner look to the basics 1.5 model 3 doll:

Lana Turnerbarbie basics collection 1.5 model 3

She’s maybe a little cartoony for me but the Steffie face is an old one, and is always going to look that way next to more modern, realistic dolls. Her hair is a little frizzy and I don’t think it suits her tied back off her face, I’ve been thinking that maybe she would look better with finger waves for a more vintage look.

Glad you are liking your model 5, I had a bit of a nightmare with my collection 2 model 5 – my seller sent me the wrong model out, think it’s resolved now but I’m going to have to wait a bit longer *sigh* thanks for posting
