Pretty in Pantone 219 C
While some people may need to Google Pantone to learn what the company is and why Barbie might be dressed in its color swatches, I think this dolls ultimately is very fun. The gown is inspired by Barbie's signature pink color, and even the soles of the shoes match.
I love the "leather" bodice of the dress mixed with the skirt of color chips. It reminds me a bit of that credit card dress worn to the Oscars in the 90s. Remember?
I collect Barbie dolls. It's a hobby most of my friends find perplexing. I haven't yet found anyone in my social circle who shares my love of the 11.5-inch plastic fashion queen — so I decided to branch out.
In blogging about Barbie, I hope to find and communicate with other collectors like me.
