How does the idea of dressing like a vintage doll sound? If that answer is in the positive, you probably want to check put the Barbie x Unique Vintage retro clothing range.
Yes, you can dress like a real life doll. And not just any doll. A vintage Barbie doll from the 1950s or 1960s. This official range includes swing dresses, evening gowns, t-shirts, accessories and even a wedding dress, if you have your big day already pencilled in.
It’s a clever idea and one that sounds great in theory. But the bonus here is that it actually works as a clothing range in reality. Even better, you don’t have to be ‘Barbie thin’ for the range to work for you, with Unique Vintage offering the clothing in both standard and plus sizes. That’s definitely a significant selling point.
So what’s in there? Well, I’ve picked out a few things that have caught my eye, but please check out the full range to see what catches yours. Oh and you can compare the real thing with the Barbie original while you are there too.
At the top of the page you will find the Red & White Gingham Barbie-Q Swing Dress, which is priced at $118 while below is the Cruise Stripes Nautical Pencil Dress for $110 (the striped top and headscarf are sold separately), the Ivory Beautiful Bride Wedding Dress ($210) and the Blue & White Suburban Shopper Sundress for $188. Again, the accessories are part of the range and sold separately.
Yes, Unique Vintage is a US company, but the retailer does ship internationally if you are not in that part of the world.
