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.
