Barbie Girl

I really can't help but feel like Barbie when I wear these sunglasses. It's funny because when I was wearing these I had that thought and then happened to glance at a box of old stuff that I have in my room and I could see a pair of Barbie sunglasses that looked exactly like these at the bottom of the box. I don't think Barbie was ever necessarily my favorite, but I did have a lot of them when I was little and I loved the My Size Barbie I had...mostly because I could wear her awesome clothes. I mean, she came with a pink sparkly tutu skirt!! I kind of wish that I still had it and that it would still fit me.




I really love polka dots, and while I love the classic black background, white dots pattern, I think I love the white background, black dots more, especially when they're bigger dots. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because it's brighter and more fun with bright colors? I don't know, but I love this dress. I just wish it was a little longer because it's pretty short which means I can't wear it to work or on breezy days.





Have you guys heard of Postmodern Jukebox? I don't know if I ever mentioned them before, but they are this group that does modern songs in the style of old music. For instance, they will do a swing or doo wop or jazz or 20s version of songs. It's awesome. They actually did Barbie Girl in a Beach Boys style.

Here's another question... HAVE YOU SEEN JURASSIC WORLD YET?!?! BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME. Sorry for screaming, but I loved every minute of it. I have seen it twice already. The first time was in IMAX 3D, and I highly recommend seeing it this way. It was so intense and awesome. There are a lot of shoutouts to the first movie too, which was neat. I really can't believe how insane IMAX 3D is. There was a trailer for the movie The Walk about the man who walked a tightrope between the World Trade Center towers. I swear I was literally getting anxious because they show you his view looking down and it feels like you are there. It is so high up. I don't know how anyone could do that! I think watching the movie in 3D would be enough for me. :)


  1. This dress is so cute!

  2. Such a cute dress. It does seem to be more difficult to find longer dresses suitable for work. I tend to wear light trousers more in the summer, that way I know I'm not gonna go flashing my knickers to my colleagues!

    I've still not seen Jurassic World yet!! I am so disappointed with myself, but hopefully I'll get to see it this wekend :D

  3. Oh stop, you are so precious! Finding longer dresses really is difficult. Either they're too long or too short for me, it seems, but at least if they're too long you can (generally) hem them. Those polka dots are gorgeous lady.

  4. what a darling dress


  5. I still haven't seen Jurassic World and I want to so bad! I'm waiting to see it with my sister when she's back from a trip. I'm glad to hear it's good from another person!

    Also I'm in love with your pink sunglasses. I definitely get a Barbie vibe from them in the best way possible. They look perfect with your cute little polka dot dress.
