3 Things Barbie Taught Me

By  |  1 Comment

One of my favorite things from childhood happens to be a little lady named Barbara, some of you may know her as Barbie. I’m pretty sure I would not be exaggerating if I said I’ve owned over 200 of these plastic icons. Who would have known that over twenty years later that these eleven and a half inch dolls would still make an impact on my life. Here are three lessons that Barbie has taught me about fashion and life.

1. There’s nothing wrong with taking inspiration from what’s trendy but just be sure to stay true to yourself. From decade to decade, Barbie has been known to be one of the most stylish girls in the room. Despite the fact that she follows the trends, she has been able to keep her identity.

2. Your career may not be the most stylish, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to be. I don’t care what career field Barbie is in, she makes sure to look fabulous! As one of my friends would say, you feel as good as you look. Women spend so much time taking care of others, that we must take a little break to make sure we’re at our best.

3. If there is nothing else that I have learned from Barbie, it is that it’s ok to switch it up. One thing that can instantly give your style a little pick me up is a new hair do and Barbie (and myself) have had enough hairstyles to fill your favorite hair magazine. If you’re not as bold as Barbie and I and don’t want to chop off your hair or do a drastic color change, that’s what wigs and extensions are for darling.
