“Come on Barbie, let’s go party!…..Ah-ah-ah-yeah!” That is how I feel in this feminine pink and fluffy, Barbie inspired look. A symbol of my childhood and my first attempts at styling, Barbie tends to creep in when I am channeling an all girly vibe. The only girl who can pull off pink on pink, I think she would approve of this look!
I don’t own many skirts and the ones I do own are straight or a-line. It took me a while to broach the flippy skirt and I finally caved when I saw this one on sale at ZARA. Not having to invest too much into the trend, I thought I would give it ago. I’ll admit the colour sold me on it, however I had planned on pairing it with a tougher fabric like leather or even adding a masculine shirt to avoid it looking too girly . Well as you can see I did a complete u-turn and paired it with the girliest white fluffy top possible! As I said, Barbie was the inspiration, as it was for Jeremy Scott at Moschino Spring 2015 show.
I think the appeal of Barbie is not just her effortless femininity, unachievable figure or can do attitude, but the fun factor of the clothing. I always had so much fun dressing up my favourite Barbie and there was never a question of being overdressed. So I guess that’s why this outfit appeals to me too. It is fun and flirty and it makes me a feel just a little bit more sparkly!
