Barbie's Birthday Bash + Spring Summer 2014 Collection

Sofi and I were invited to attend Barbie's birthday bash and the launching of their Spring Summer collection. It was held at the Barbie concept store in Shangri-La Plaza East Wing. 

Can you imagine Sofi's excitement when she learned that we are going to attend Barbie's birthday party? Kinilig talaga sya and napasigaw ng Yes! hahaha! :P So when we registered and someone put a stamp on her, she asked me if it's ok not to erase it so she can show her new "Barbie tattoo" to her classmates. Lol!

It was a fun event for Barbie Store Loyalty Card holders and other special guests where key pieces for the season were paraded in a mini fashion show, featuring swimwear and lovely spring dresses for young girls. Maye Yao Co-Say, COO of Internationale Globale Marques, Inc. (IGM) presented the inspiration behind the Barbie-chic designs. 

And as predicted, Barbie's Spring Summer Collection is a must have in our little princess' closet! From swimsuit, to casual, to formal dresses, they are all stylish and trendy! They also have new collection of bags, luggages, and shoes!

With the theme With Barbie Anything Is Possible, the intimate gathering was a grand event for the little fashionistas, who were dressed up in Barbie from head to toe. They had a moment in the spotlight at the modeling segment of the show, and posed for photos around the different sections of the Barbie Store with child actress Lenlen Frial.

Guests were treated to a coveted preview of Barbie’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, along with the chance to get first dibs on their top picks via a Trunk Show VIP Passbook that offered them a 20% discount on their shopping haul and reserved pieces.

At the event, all kids were called in front to introduce themselves and do the ramp like Barbie!

Before Sofi's turn, she looked at me and I lip read that she doesn't want to walk or pose. Biglang na-shy type. haha!

And oh how I wish navideohan ko sya. She walked a few steps then nag ala "Let it go" stomp sya, hahaha! So cute!!

Pink luggages for travel! Pwede din pang school yung bag na may wheeler sa top.

And did you know that Barbie is 55 years old??? She really is a fashion icon!

Barbie's 55th birthday were filled with lots and lots of cupcakes in blue and pink, candy lollies and chips.

A must have 2013 Holiday Barbie!

Super cute dressing room!

And Sofi's highlight of her day? Going home with a rocker Barbie! Woohoo!

Thank you so much Barbie Philippines for having us! Happy 55th Birthday!! Don't worry, you don't look your age-hehe! :P Continue to be a fashion inspiration to our princesses! :)

I can relate to your girl's excitement, I'm 30 and still get excited about Barbie and all that Barbie stuff. I have two boys, so walang Barbie talks haha. I still have two of my dolls my Dad bought me when I was a toddler, don't know what happened dun sa iba, most probably I played doctor with them and took their parts for the sake of education. Barbie is's a girl thing :)
