Barbie Does Vintage

Barbie Does Vintage

Barbie has been a doctor, an astronaut, a CEO - you name it, she’s done it all. Sure, Barbie may come in a box - but you certainly can’t keep her in one.

Since her grand debut in 1959, Barbie has been more than just a toy - she's been inspiring trends and proving that being "pretty in pink" is just the beginning. The world turned rose-tinted this month, unless, of course, you were busy building an Atomic bomb - in which case, priorities, right? But for the rest of us, we've been witnessing the unstoppable force that is Barbie, taking the fashion industry by storm once again.

Barbiecore is all about embracing vibrant shades of her signature color, but beneath that dopamine-boosting aesthetic lies the true mission of empowering the next generation of women. So, slip into something pink and embrace the values Barbie holds dear, and who knows, you might feel like you're walking on air - just like our tippy-toed friend.

 

So, why did Barbie come into existence in the first place?

Barbie's creator, Ruth Handler, saw the limited play options for her daughter, Barbara, and decided it was time to change the game. Tired of the market being predominantly saturated with baby dolls, she wanted to give girls around the world a chance to imagine different paths for their future. Just like that, Barbie became the epitome of possibility, showing girls that they could be so much more than just mothers. Over the years, Barbie has been a doctor, an astronaut, a CEO - you name it, she’s done it all. Sure, Barbie may come in a box - but you certainly can’t keep her in one.  

Now, let's talk about Barbie's influence on fashion over the decades. 

While some of us were trying to pull off the "current cool" look with two popped collars (seriously, who told us that was the move… we’re not mad at you, we just want to talk…), Barbie was busy dressing for her dreams. Rocking a glitter dress and hot pink cowboy boots may have seemed like a risky fit at one point - but thanks to Barbie’s bold choices, self-expression has found its way into fashion more than ever before.

But here's the real question: Can you live in a Barbie World by thrifting? 

Spoiler alert… of course you can! The magic of possibilities is ever-changing, just like fashion. Our goals and dreams evolve, and so can our style. And guess what? Thrifting is the way to go! With incredible vintage retailers at your fingertips, you can find thrifted pieces that tell your unique story. Giving new life to that baby-doll tee and a pink miniskirt? Yes, please! Strutting in your neon pink knee high boots that make all the heads turn when you walk by? Say less. Whatever you feel good in, is exactly what our powerhouse in pink would want you to wear.

So embrace the sparkle, dress up those favorite thrifted finds, and let your inner Barbie shine.
