Some of the goodies that I bought and received from the convention, table host and table mates.

2012 Barbie Convention- So In Style Party

The So in Style Yahoo and Facebook groups had a party at the Barbie Convention.  It was hosted by Kimberly, the organizer of the groups.  She did a great job.  I really enjoyed it.  They had dolls displays, food, wonderful goodies,  and a thinking game  about Paris and dolls.  It was a fun evening.

The So In Style Dolls on Display:

Mattel donated  the real and paper dolls for the members
Stephen Sumner ( the designer for So In Style Dolls) signed the paper dolls for us.   Each attendee was given 2 paper dolls and I won the third one in a raffle.  I am only missing Trichelle.
