Today I walked to The Out NY to see the Stephen Burrows SS 13 Presentation and the launch of his Pazette Barbie doll. Do you remember me blogging about the Pazette doll? Anyway I loved this season’s collection. It featured plenty of neon colors, spunky spots, and cray cray cut outs to please the young and old Stephen Burrows customer. The printed pieces varied from the bright to subdued, but blended well with the simple silhouettes of the solid pieces. Both the pants and dresses were flattering for every figure. This collection is one that makes me want to skip Fall and go straight to Spring.
I have been to Stephen Burrows’ past two fashion shows. I also collected Barbie dolls with my mom. Now the two have come together to create the Stephen Burrows Pazette Barbie Doll for Barbie’s Collector Doll series. This beautiful brown Barbie wears a sheer silver vest and a nude mesh bodysuit adorned with silver glitter, rhinestones, and sequins. Did I mention the silver platform shoes? The doll retails for $100.00 and is available for purchase at BarbieCollector.com. I’m so excited I might have to add this one to my collection.

His sportswear is always suitable for many occasions, while I saw the denim collection as perfect for a little night or day wear. As usual the master of sportswear knocks it out of the park with another fantastic collection.
