I was extremely happy with my outfit for today. The new BARBIE x FOREVER 21 line that was released at the beginning of this month is extremely cool, especially this shirt. When I read that pieces were being designed by Forever 21, WildFox, and Lord & Taylor that were either Barbie-influenced or actual pieces that were once worn by the dolls, I was ecstatic. Though I never identified with Barbies as a child (matchbox cars are a lifestyle choice), I think that this line is extremely fun because REAL-LIFE WOMEN are going to redefine the meaning of “Barbie Girl”: I feel that making Barbie’s “look” accessible to everyone will annihilate body and beauty standards that are impossible to acheive and make the concept for everyone.
Plus Beyoncè influenced this shirt. So obviously it belongs in my closet.
