Grow Up, Barbie

Now that we're grown up and no longer play with Barbie (it's time to move on, girl) doesn't mean we can't pay homage to her influence on a young girl's sense of chic. Start with this T-shirt from Patricia Field's Barbie Luxe! line at Macy's:

Flashdance meets Barbie, I can see it on her now (with a ponytail of course). And here's the back: I love the Barbie silhouette logo. The T-shirt is $58. This or this light pink logo T is a perfect holiday gift for your closet Barbie fan.

For those who are out of the closet, here's some full-on Barbie. I can't help it, I'm drawn to the graffiti track jacket ($108); it appeals to every ghetto-fabulous molecule in my body. I want to wear it with this, the Barbie logo necklace, $28 and worth every fake bling-y cent. The long-sleeved T's are $58, and yes, the hot pink one says "I Want My Dream House." Thank you, Ms. Field, for expressing our true inner desires on your Barbie Luxe! T's.
