    It is always great to meet new Dolls while reconnecting with the Vintage Dolls. I encourage all Dolls to attend as many meet and greets as possible. Each time I always learn something new.

  • Kenya

    Will there be another meet and greet? I have a prior engagement, and can only stay for 30mins. at the most. I do want to drop in to meet other dolls, purchase my t-shirt, and give a doll. Is a Barbie doll o.k.? I want to buy the right size.

    September 26, 2012

    • Mama Doll

      Hi Nakenya! TGIF! To answer your question, if you only have 30 minutes to attend this Affair, as a new Doll that needs to know all about The Black Doll Affair, it is my recommendation that you attend this Affair in the future. We have them bi-monthly or so. Thanks for the question. xo

      September 28, 2012

  • Mama Doll

    Howdy Dolls! About 2moro...

    If you're NO LONGER GOING be B'huetiful & change your RSVP to Not Going. Please & Thank hue.

    The first 30 Dolls to arrive on time with a toy black doll donation, or a minimum $10 Paper Doll Donation will receive a Macy's | Bronner Brothers | MHE Magazine gift bag!

    Be considerate of your hostesses, Mama & Macy's. It's just as rude to be early as it is to be late. Arrive no earlier than 12:45pm. Food is not allowed in the room. So eat b4 you arrive. We will offer a beverage.

    I'm scheduled for an Affair afterwards, so PLEASE ARRIVE PROMPTLY, as I will start promptly. This isn't just a party, it's a Welcome to the Family Meet, a Big Hug to Vintage Dolls Greet, & a brush up on The Black Doll Affair, yesterday, 2day & 2moro. While it's being hosted by our partners in fashion, arriving fashionably late to Macy's just won't be dolling.

    What kind of toy doll should hue bring? Any kind, as long as she's black & brand new.

    I heart hue!
    xo
    TGIF!

    Good Morning! Dolls, as hue know a lot of email goes out. Therefore, we try [and hue should to] to send only necessary emails to Doll's in-boxes. More, please keep in mind that everyone gets these emails when you write them in the comment section of an affair. In keeping, let me reiterate our: "READ TO THE BOTTOM" clause. To spare the Dolls getting emails for information that is posted on the Affair, before you go in and ask ALL of us a question to an answer posted on the Affair, first make sure that you've read the Affair all the way to the bottom. Then, send an email...to the appropriate parties. If it's personal to you, please go to my profile or another Ambassadoll's profile and ask your question. When creating an Affair, b4 posting it, The Ambassadolls check it twice to make sure we've not only covered the basics, but also the things perhaps we didn't think of. In appreciation of their/my time, it's a nice gesture to actually read the Affair. Nonetheless, I heart hue people!

  • Leta Gibbs

    First Time Doll - wootwoot!!! FINALLY got my shirt and look forward to meeting all of y'all b'huetiful women!! I would love to purchase the other shirt that's on the website and part of the video. Where can I find it? There were not a lot of selections for shirts except for the Breast Cancer one. Hoping you will add more styles and sizes in the near future. In the mean time, I got one to get me up in there:-) See hue Sat!!

    September 25, 2012

    • Black Doll Affair Ambassadolls

      Wootwoot, Leta hue're a Black Doll! Yay!!! Thank you for becoming a Black Doll! As for your comment on the gear - We have Affairs @Macy's but we're not Macy's Dept Store. :-) In consideration of our small org, we present new gear in a range of sizes every weekend. We call it Black Friday Weekend. The New Black Doll T-shirt & Band are always in stock in all sizes. Because we can't afford to sit on merchandise, we budget the stock made available to our Dolls at blackdollaffairstore.com­ - this also ensures hue're getting haute new gear, as opposed to the same things from last year. The Afro Soul Sista tee (from the video) is a special tee that we don't keep laying around after the stock is sold out. We bring it back to hue, er' now and again: that's what keeps it special! To answer your question: "Where can I find it?" blackdollaffairstore.com­ is the only place we keep gear. You went to the right place! Looking forward to seeing, meeting and greeting you! XO

      September 26, 2012

    • Mama Doll

      PS. Perhaps hue overlooked it, Lita. But the T-shirt in the video the Rhinestone Soul Sista T-shirt is in store and in stock. Fyizzle! ;-)

    Howdy Dolls! Community Doll Kenya commented: "I would love to attend, but do I have enough time to purchase and receive my t-shirt?" More than likely, she's not the only Doll that has that concern, so I'm broadcasting my response....

    My response: Dolls, this Saturday's Meet & Greet Affair at Macy's is for Community Dolls & Black Dolls! One of the The differences between the two, is one has a T-shirt that identifies her as a Black Doll, the other does not. Because Community Dolls are able to RSVP for this particular Affair, we're aware, by the very nature of your title as a Community Doll, that you won't be in gear. Should U decide to become a Black Doll Saturday, there will be Black Doll gear there 4 purchase. So Community Dolls arrive wearing black (our primary colors) and accessorize in our secondary colors: pink & white. Please & Thank hue! Xo
