50 FACES on the streets on New York

Was a busy day on the streets of NY.  Shop windows…….buses….friends……posters……….homeless people…..cute kids…….famous people……..Bert and Ernie……..Nick Jonas…….Iris Apple…….and some graffiti.  A FUN DAY.

 

They’re OH SO………. SoHo !

If a “spot o’ tea” is your delight…….Steve will be happy to supply it………with a spoonful of charm…….at T2……..offering Australia’s largest selection of loose tea.

My sensory experience [other than Steve] was a taste of “Ginger Peppermint”.

The sweet taste of both lingers………..

BARBIE goes to a Fashion Show

I walked  over to Amsterdam Avenue to drop off my dry-cleaning at the Apthorpe Cleaners…….and there in the window was BARBIE.………putting on a Fashion Show.

WOW!  Does that bring back the memories.

 When I worked for E.J.Korvette’s Department Store in 1963 I put on a FASHION SHOW for the new doll sensation………BARBIE.  I hired limousines, rolled out the Red Carpet…..and Barbie was a hit!

BARBIE made her debut in 1959………an invention of Ruth Handler….one of the owners of MATTEL.

BARBIE is surrounded by many of her friends……Midge, Skipper, Christie.

It looks like Marilyn Monroe was the model for this doll. “Hello” Mr. President”!

P1240741

KEN was named after Ruth Handler’s own son.

P1240742

BARBIE has sold over one billion dolls making her the most successful toy in history.

P1240743

Katherine Hepburn “look-a-like”…………oh so glam. [Fashion Designers were brought in to design her wardrobe].

P1240744

BARBIE has had many profession………..fashion model, firefighter, Dentist, Doctor, astronaut, paleontologist even Presidential Candidate.

P1240745

Feminists have protested that BARBIE reinforces sexism.

Playing with BARBIE seems to enhance a girl’s self- image [and some boys]………expanding their sense of their potential.
