In my heart, I sometimes think I’m still nine years old. At least I was when this little bit of magic landed on our doorstep addressed to both my small girl and I.
It’s the brand new Collector’s Edition Coach Barbie. I’d like to tell you I willingly handed her over, but I didn’t. I’d like to tell you I didn’t hover over Delaney as she poured over each leather bag, her genuine Coach shoes and unbuckled her trench coat. I may have mumbled, ‘careful!’ a few too many times for her taste.
The truth is, I would love to have her in my office as this is the part of me that simply never grew up. I was (still am, clearly) a girly-girl and always loved Barbie. Seeing her high fashion makeover, complete with her first ever leather handbags and an outfit that mimics the Coach 2013 Spring/Summer line, I simply want her stationed where I can see her. Again, the girl in me speaks.
Mattel and Coach partnered on Barbie, putting her in a miniature version of the round Patty sunglasses from the Legacy Sunwear Collection that matches her classic Coach duffle with tiny, perfect details including a working buckle, an edge-painted strap, a metal lozenge hangtag and and a swinging tassel.
As a Collector’s Edition, there were only 13,000 of the dolls made. It is my understanding they sold out on the Coach site the day they were released this week, however, I do see that BarbieCollector.com is still listing them as available, just backordered until August 17th. The doll retails for $95.
If you need me, I’ll be playing with my new doll, I mean, Delaney’s doll.Disclosure: This doll was given to Delaney and I as a gift. I was not asked to write about it or share in any capacity…. I’m simply doing so because my sweet girl and I are giddy about it and we received so many comments and questions from different platforms when we posted on Instagram. As always, all thoughts and opinions shared here are my own.
