Together again and complete! Considered among the "classic/recognizable "vintage Barbie outfits, Red Flare,# 939, Silken Flame,#977, they were meant to co-ordinate with each other. Red Flare has the red velveteen coat, with the white lining, accented with a bow at the neck. The outfit takes its names from the coat's flared sleeves. The coat has a matching pill box hat, also accented with a bow. While cuddled up in the coat, Barbie keeps her hands toasty with a pair of long white gloves. Under her arm is a matching red clutch, closed with a "diamond" crystal. Across her lovely toes, Barbie sports a pair of red mules, marked Japan.
And underneath the coat, what does our dressed to kill Barbie have to display? Why its a strapless, red velveteen bodice, joined to a satin white skirt. She is cinched in by a gold foil belt. She can change out her red clutch for a dimpled, gold toned one, if in the mood. Also a second choice of heels, this time in contrasting black. These are also marked Japan.
The exterior of the coat is in excellent condition. The lining has a few pin holes, being in very good condition. The closing snap is crisp. The red velveteen clutch, the white gloves, and red heels are in excellent condition.
The dress is in overall very good condition. Again, this closing snap is crisp. The skirt has one discernible pin hole. The belt is considered in overall good condition, with the foiling missing, as is typical, at the joining of the buckle. The gold, dimpled purse is in excellent condition, as are the black mules.
Finding these co-ordinates with ALL the accessories is very hard to do. All of the pieces are original, coming from a decades old collection. Fire up your favorite Barbie car, dress in all these fiery pieces, and watch her zip away! Please Note Doll and Stand Not Included!
Take this one home with confidence that it is authentic and in excellent vintage condition. It emanates from a decades long collection and will be a great addition to a new one. These Barbie Outfits are from Charlotte's personal collection, which was developed over three decades.
