Barbie x UV || Solo in the Spotlight Dress

Unique Vintage + VINTAGE BARBIE!

Need I say more?  The new collaboration collection is a glamour girl's dream, and today I'm featuring the showstopper: Solo in the Spotlight Dress.  This is a reproduction of the original 1960 Barbie, which my mom actually owned as a child, and then I also played with as a little girl!  So this piece is extra nostalgic for me, and is the epitome of bombshell glitz.  Aesthetically, this dress brought a few sources of inspiration to my mind, so I pooled them together to create my vision.  Lisa Fonssagrives in Balenciaga & Rochas, Jayne on her wedding day, Marilyn & Diana Dors, and of course Barbie... the mermaid dress has always been one of my favorite styles, and in fact my own wedding dress was a mermaid gown! :)

Enjoy my Mattel dream!

  1. Do you have a post and photos of your wedding and wedding gown?

    My husband is (part time) a Magician. I sometimes help him out as one of his magical assistants. I used to be just in boring theatre style "blacks", but have decided I want to be somewhat more glamorous. Recently I had PUG's "Gilda" gown in burgundy. I'm now thinking of making my own - a kind of slightly less over the top "Charles James" dress or the modern version of him....Zac Posen. I loved Dita von Teese' Zac Posen dress from a few years back at the Charles James Met Museum Exhibition.
