How much do you wish your wardrobe looked like that?
Obviously with your own clothes in it. In the right size and stuff. But how beautiful is that wardrobe?
I would absolutely love for my wardrobe too look like that. So neat. So ordered.
And I would love the doll’s wardrobe to look like that too.
As it is, it’s stacked plastic boxes, shoe boxes, old jewellery boxes and former Glossy Boxes.
I long for a future of travelling wardrobes with vast vintage Louis Vuitton cases, closets and hat boxes (you never know) but the dolls’ current mobile wardrobe looks a lot more like this….
Well I can dream can’t I?
The super shiny wardrobe of love is available at Barbie Collector and although the clothes aren’t included, it does come with some super cute coat hangers. I think I’ll need about 25.
Nope. Not a Geri Halliwell story today, folks. Sorry.
I’m talking bags bags bags. The Telegraph have done a lovely feature today on the best bags for Spring/Summer. Do click through it. It is the perfect handbag porn. I think my fave is the Alexander Wang white clutch with the basketball net underneath…
Amazebags! Working out how to make a miniature version. Maybe with one of those white net bags that you get mini cheeses in?
The main point of this story was to show off a “bag” I’ve had for ages.
It’s clearly a padlock, yes. But a Marc Jacobs padlock. Which actually came as a pendant. But it’s really heavy! And stupid people say “why do you have a padlock round your neck?” and then they read it and think “well that’s a bit rude. Not that I let people so close. It’s true it is one of my ruder necklaces, up there with my big black acrylic SUCK I bought with Laure in Soho.
But I use it all the time as a padlock. I have the chicest gym locker in town. And the keys even have little MJs on. Cuuuute.
If it came in people size (and was maybe a little lighter) I think it would fly off the shelf, don’t you?
Love her or hate her. She’s preggers. She is never mentioned on Barbie of the Day which is kinda mad as she fits the plastic fantastic mould (haha).
It’s not that I dislike Kim Kardashian. I don’t want to sound like my mum and say I don’t know who she is. Of course I know who she is. I’m not entirely sure what she does but I’m told this doesn’t matter. She doesn’t do anything. She just is! She is a brand. And a big brand at that. And I quite like that.
But she’s not news. She’s just telly. Which is fine.
I started this shoot as a poolside, beachy, floppy hat, tropical print bla bla bla, but as I piled on the accessories an image took hold. And it was an image that wouldn’t go away. Emblazoned on my retinas from seeing too many pictures of the Kardashian Klan out and about not doing, just being. Fortunately I had brought my miniature prosthetic baby bump with me (never travel without one) and the story was transformed as I stuck it up her sarong, a line I never thought I’d write. But enjoyed doing so.
Will she become a regular feature on BOTD?
But you never know. I get a lot of (often weird) requests to feature more or less of certain stars. More Kate Moss. Less Rihanna. More Pink. Less Skirtswinger (never gonna happen). But to add to the 2013 Resolutions I will try and include more new people, starting with Kim.
P.S Whoever it is that keeps emailing asking for more Claudia Winkleman dolls, I will, erm, do my best.
Barbie of the Day is officially three years old today. 3!
Much like Jesus and Carol Vorderman, this blog’s birthday is swallowed up by Christmas. No presents for us. Boo hoo. (Feel free to send us things in the new year, even if you get it in the sales!). But it’s easy to remember for me, as the blog was born on my other half’s birthday so if I can remember him I can remember the dolls.
We celebrated the 1000th post back in October but three years feels like a pretty significant milestone too.
To celebrate I have brought the team together for a sparkling family portrait.
BOTD hasn’t made me millions (yet) but it has brought me, and I hope you guys too, a lot of pleasure.
Before you start, it’s too late. I’ve already pitched How Gay Is Your Christmas Tree? to Channel 4. Probably too late for a commission this year but lookout for it in December 2013.
Given the choice, my Christmas tree would indeed be this gay. I’d maybe add a bit more sparkle and feathers but I don’t wanna go over the top. Maybe real diamonds though. And some unicorns made of sugar? Animatronic unicorns?
To gay up your own tree you can simply head over to Barbie Collector and purchase some of these amazing decorations….
Sparkling up your Saturday with some glittery shoes. How festive?
I love a bit of glitter, not that you would notice, I’m sure, and the dolls have quite a collection of blinging shoes.
As we’re about to hit the party season (though here, everyday is a party) I thought it was time to show them off.
Another sneak peek today.
Despite the warm and sunny weather, visitors at BOTD Towers have been shocked to see piles of snow in the garden. Not that shocking in some parts of the world but considering we were on the beach last week, something didn’t quite add up.
Early snow means one of two things. Global warming (guilty as charged, me and the dolls have serious hairspray dependency) or the dreaded C word.
Yes. Halloween is over, time to fill the airwaves with C*****mas adverts. Xmas is everywhere! Even here at Barbie of the Day. I had a photo shoot for our C*****mas cards this week, hence the snow and sparkly shoes. I don’t want to spoil the surprise so can only offer you this tiny glimpse into my tiny crazy mind.
In the meantime here is what John Lewis have to offer.
Will it make you cry?
Will you download the amazing version of The Power of Love? (Link opens in iTunes)
Will it go to number one?
Will Paloma Faith be pissed off?
The new Bond movie, Skyfall is out today so I got the glitz out in excitement.
Now I have no idea who those two women are that keep turning up on the red carpet but when I think Bond girl I think Pussy Galore, Holly Goodhead, Kissy Suzuki or Solitaire.
I wanted to do a Honey Ryder/Halle Berry number but it’s raining here at BOTD Towers so I think she would have looked more drowned rat than sex goddess Ursula Andress, stepping out of the sea.
I went for something a bit more trad. Vintage Bond in fact. The iconic secretary, Jill Masterson in Goldfinger. What do you think? AsphyxiationaliciousSticky.
