Barbie Fashion Show...

I found this Barbie in a flea market when I still lived in Indiana.Before anyone gets too excited she is a reproduction but its funny that even as a reproduction she's quickly approaching the time frame for vintage herself in the realm of online selling (20 years or older). She was still in the box and I thought she would be so cute to display in my daughters room.Heidi was 2 at the time and quickly discovered how to climb up to shelves and quickly destroyed the box.She still displays well and even though my daughter enjoys playing with all her  Barbies this one she keeps on her dresser and plays with her very gently.This is the outfit she came in.

And how cute are her shoes?The answer is very.

One thing Heidi has always lamented was that this doll needed more clothes because when she put her in her modern Barbie clothes it didn't look right.When my mother in law came to visit we went to a few thrift stores and  as luck would have it she found a few bags of vintage Barbie clothes!It took me a few weeks to get around to washing them.Some I wasn't able to salvage due to being so stained or torn but most of the bag was pure gold.These were a few of my favorites.

Happy to report when winter hits Barbie will be ready this year!

When I put this one on I had one of those "Barbie dresses sexier than I do for bed" realizations.

Even though I felt like a creep for this shot I had to get a better detail shot cause her panties are adorable.

  8. That is amazing. I love that you were able to find vintage Barbie doll clothes with relative ease. I love that children are so silly. They do not care if it is vintage they just want to play with things.
