The Barbie Sartorialist
I swear this is not turning into a Barbie blog (okay, it might be) but I have encountered a new obsession.
During my research last week, I stumbled upon a website that has stolen my pink, fabulous, Barbie-sex doll drenched heart.
It is called Tiny Frock Shop.
This online boutique offers vintage designer clothing for Barbie, the ultimate fashion icon.
This delicious site is run by Pamela Thompson, the former Head Fashion Designer at Betsey Johnson and current designer for Anna Sui. She's been recently coined the "Sartorialist of Barbie" and her resale Barbie clothing and accessories website has been making headlines all over the world.
The shop features manufactured and handmade Barbie clothes and accessories from the 1940's and up.
The most fabulous part about the site is that all the dolls featured in high fashion editorials on Tiny Frock Shop have their own model profiles. They are so fun to read and insanely adorable! I spent my entire morning engrossed in each one.
Plus, the website has a blog with behind-the-scenes footage of the fashion photo shoots. It's so cute I wanna pass out. Seriously. I'm on the floor, hyperventilating, right now.
Did you know about this website?!?
