With the anticipation of the new Integrity Lines being released soon, I started going through my boxes again. I have been trying very hard to try the "one comes in/one goes out" rule of collecting. (I'll let you know when I get successful at it!)
I was pleasantly surprised to find Urban Antoinette Adele in her box. She was the first "tall" Integrity doll I ever purchased but had been put away and stored with the release of newer dolls. For some reason she always reminded me of Tyra Banks, so I've held on to her. I went through my modest stash of wigs (since I don't like wigged dolls as a rule) and found the perfect one for her. Now, she reminds me of Jennifer Hudson! Not sure why, but I just think that way.
I started wondering if it were possible to find success with any of the recent play line Sparkle Girlz and Barbie clothing I had purchased. You cannot imagine how excited I was to find this dress could even fit the regular FR body!
Again, another fun day spent with a doll I already owned and a $5 dress. You can't beat it. It made me start wondering why we have this mindset of "new is better" or "more expensive is more desirable". I doubt if I could've had any more fun with a new $150 doll than I did this morning with my forgotten girl and $5 Barbie dress.
