Wishlist - Wildfox Barbie Tee

Wildfox My Resume Hippie Crewneck Tee ($64)
As the Fashion Barbie, I'm always on the lookout for cutesy clothes that pay homage to the original Princess of Pink, Barbara Millicent Roberts (better known as Barbie). When Moschino did it's kitschy collection inspired by the famous doll I freaked, but unfortunately $800 for a pink sweatshirt or backpack is pushing it a little in terms of budget.

Thankfully, Moschino isn't the only one who is feeling inspired by Barbie as of late, as the clever and fun T-shirt brand Wildfox just launched a Barbie-themed collection full of bright pinks and Malibu dream house-worthy prints and colors. 

My personal favorite is this simple pink tee emblazoned with the Barbie logo. On the back, a list of the many different jobs and careers Barbie has held over her fifty-odd years, proving that the blonde bombshell is more than just a pretty face. 

For me, that's always been an important part of Barbie; for all the controversy about her figure and the emphasis on physical appearance, what I loved about the doll when I was little was that the possibilities of what Barbie could do or be were limitless. She didn't let anything hold her back, and if she wanted to be a fashion designer one day and a veterinarian the next, she went ahead and did it! Sure, her bust-waist-hips ratio is a little unrealistic, but—at least for me—Barbie was always about possibility and never limiting yourself, not an early form of conditioning myself to hate my own body. 

But I digress. Anyways, I just think the shirt is cute. What say you?

  1. Yay! I'm obsessed with all things Barbie and when the Moschino collection came out I went a lil' cray (and even wrote a post dedicated to the collection on my blog) so, quite obviously, I am really lovin' this collection! Thank you so much for sharing this, I wouldn't of known about it otherwise!
