On the Mattel Barbie website this doll has no name when sold separately. In the gift set "City Glamour" she is sold together with the Nighttime Glamour doll (who has no name when sold separately either) and is she called City Chic Style. Some people call her Happy Hipster (which is another Barbie if I'm not mistaken) or plain and simple Sweater Dress Barbie. This doll, whatever her name is, is Gorgeous with a capital G. I like everything about her: the hair-do, face, outfit and accessories. She looks elegant in a casual way. The purse is, unlike the plastic moulded ones, completely usable. The sunglasses have actual see through lenses. Her hair is soft and has a minimum amount of styling product in it: it stays in place, but doesn't feel like concrete. And, she has articulated arms and legs, she poses very nicely!

    1. Hello Shasha, thank you for dropping by, it's so nice to read you here :-). My collection is microscopic small in comparison to before, but I'm enjoying it very much! Big hugs and kisses back!

  2. Hello again! I'm glad to see you back on blogger.
    I have this doll too, but the first one I got was super wonky and I sent her back. I still haven't opened her, as after the whole wonky situation I wasn't feeling her. However, I do prefer dolls in casual outfits rather than super fancy ones.
    Take care.

    1. Hi Monstercrafts! Mine has also her eyes a bit too close together, but it's not that bad. She now plays a main character in my story and wears eye glasses, which I like on her :-). The outfit I like very much, and the handbag! Hugs :-)
