Unique Vintage, a brand the celebrates retro and vintage style clothing, has partnered with Mattel to create an awesome line of outfits inspired by Barbie‘s classic looks. I personally love taking inspiration from the past when it comes to dressing up and going out, so I guess it’s no surprise that I love this line! This post will be mostly pictures as, especially in this case, pictures speak louder than words!
I guess it’s no big shock that they chose to do a Solo in the Spotlight dress (regular/plus size). It’s a little more costume’y than the rest, but would look great at the right event or at a Barbie convention!
I love this Sheath Sensation dress, too. (Though, not so much the sad looking Midge they used for the doll photo!) This dress looks like it should flatter many body types (regular/plus), which can be said about many of the styles Unique Vintage chose to bring to life.
What a pretty brunette bubble cut! This may be the prettiest of the dolls they used to model the doll sized fashions. Unique Vintage’s Apple Print Sheath is super cute and colorful (regular/plus). It’s totally something I’d try on!
Below are a few more items that I think are super cute!
There are more outfits directly inspired by Barbie fashions and a few more basic things, like t-shirts, so make sure to check out their full collection on the Unique Vintage Website. I’m very tempted by a few of these items, myself, and would be surprised if the My Barbie Collection skirt didn’t end up in my cart eventually!
For those in the Burbank, CA area, visit the brick and mortar store to see these and other vintage inspired fashions. What do you think of this collaboration? Do you have a favorite item? Let us know in the comment area!
