Fashion, like travel, goes in cycles. Barbie, the single most successful doll was invented back in 1959, well dressed and very well mannered. To her horror wearing a bikini outfit in this century almost categorises her as ‘overdressed’. She’s had to become a naughty nurse, or a bad ass school teacher, even a cat lady.
Excuse her for a while, while she’s so wide-eyed and down caught in the middle. She might seem so strong, and might speak so long, but she’s never been so wrong.
But can’t you see, she’s overworked. High maintenance has become the norm and more is perceived as more and simplicity is just too damn plain simple.
Unacceptable, but excuse her for a while, she’s turned a blind eye with a stare caught down in the middle.
