She's wearing the vintage Skipper fashion Town Togs, from 1965-66, with the addition of green ankle boots instead of the black flats.It is snowy, after all.
Town Togs consists of a yellow turtle neck, a green felt jumper dress with matching coat, black and white checked socks (not tights),a matching hat, and black shoes.The green ankle boots were included with various Barbie and Francie outfits, and a Skipper shoe Pak.
When I got this 'Skipper' she was actually just a Skipper head. She had missing eyebrows, and lips too I think. She was not very nice, but she had such a pretty hair colour she deserved to be saved.
|Waiting at the corner. That walk sign is taking it's time!|
I love the way she looks with the blushy cheeks.
|If Mom was home she'd make Skipper put her boots away neatly before doing anything else.And Dad wouldn't want to hear her new album!|
|Rubber Soul at last!|
|Skipper really needs to learn how to handle her records! No fingers on the record surface!|
|She pops the record on and checks out the song titles on the back cover.|
|All afternoon Skipper plays and replays the album.|
|"What's this song? Norwegian Wood". That's a weird sounding instrument.|
|And yes, she likes it.She's just laying back enjoying the music when she hears a key in the lock.|
|Mom calls from the doorway, "Skipper! Are you home? We're back."|
|Dad: "What's that noise?!"|
Tomorrow is Ken's birthday. (My Ken that is. Not the doll!) So in honour of that we'll be starting Ken Week, with a week long look at Ken's (the doll!) various incarnations.
