Happy 50th Birthday Barbie !
As Barbie celebrates her 50th anniversary, an outrageously pink affair , I’m reminiscing about my own Barbie collection. I adored Barbies as a child. I loved dressing them in sparkling gowns and twirly skirts (My very first Barbie was the “Crystal Fantasy Barbie”). My Barbies had boxes brimming with tulle tutus, stylish suits, and pretty-in-pink dresses. I remember all the tiny snaps and bits of velcro and sweet ruffle detail.
My Barbies? They were fashionable, strong independent women who can do anything! and that bitch has everything! from her super hot boyfriend Ken to her fabulous malibu dream house and convertable…. she calls the shot & Ken always rode as a passenger in Barbie’s pink convertible & Barbie is the one driving!
When my Barbie ran for President, nobody wondered if the world was ready for a female in the White House (Maybe that’s why I wanted Hillary to win the white house in this past election LOL). My Executive Barbie was never paid less than her male counterparts. I never wondered how my Doctor Barbie conquered work-life balance and date George Clooney in the ER room haha; she just did! My Barbies? They were successful, pioneering women with style and taste of couture, she has inspried me to be a fashion designer as I am now.
