Make It Work
I used to watch Project Runway during its first three seasons. Heidi? Eh, take her or leave her. But Tim Gunn! Fantastic!
I'm sure I'm not alone in wishing I had a Tim Gunn of my own to guide me through my day.
Mr. Gunn now has brought his eye for style to Barbie, and he's created two dolls.
The first wears stylish separates, with skinny jeans, a patterned blouse and sunny yellow jacket. She finishes the outfit with a metallic purse, a smart phone and (cross promotion time) a copy of Tim Gunn's book.
The other doll wears a pencil skit and white button down shirt. She adds on a wide belt, high heels and red handbag.
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.
