Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week. You all know how much I love Barbie, but I’m not sure if I’m happy about her hanging upside down naked from a skirt. Perhaps the designer is paying homage to Barbie and her amazing flexibility skills?
Or, maybe the designer was playing “nudist colony” Barbie and got inspired. Oh don’t act like you never played “nudist colony” Barbie. C’mon! If you were raised in the ’70s, lived in California, pretended you were a Charlie’s Angel, wore Dolphin shorts and tube tops, most likely you played “nudist colony” Barbie. (OK, perhaps spending weekends at my dad’s house in Malibu and Topanga Canyon had something to do with it– there were a lot of “colonies” around there.)
I’m going to say that this is a tribute to Barbie’s freedom. She can be anything and do anything and is not afraid to show it.
This definitely gives new meaning to doll clothes. Now, if we can only get someone to make a shirt from Ken dolls, this outfit would be complete.
