Happy Birthday Barbie!
Happy Birthday to Barbie!
When I was a little girl, I always used to think it was so cool that Barbie's birthday was the same day as my Nana's birthday. March 9th.
She's 52 years old today. She looks pretty good for her age, huh?
As you can imagine, I was a HUGE Barbie fan. HUGE. I loved everything about Barbie. Her hair. Her clothes. Her shoes. Her dream house. Her car. EVERYTHING.
Barbie impacted fashion for me. She was the first doll I ever played with in terms of fashion. I used to dress Barbie in gowns, sportswear, sundresses, tees and tanks, denim, skirts, capris, you name it... she had it. Well, I had it to put on her.
It's funny, without having a daughter yet in my life... I've never had a Barbie in my life as a mom. But I've seen my nieces with their Barbies, and it's exactly what it was like for me 25 years ago.
When it comes to fashion... Barbie is the ULTIMATE fashionista. She starts every little girl off on her own red carpet... she gets all the little girls ready for some fabulous-fashion-fun.
These are "grown-up" outfits I can still see Miss Barbie in... (can you tell I need a daughter).
