Self. Barbies, Kens and Skippers

Welcome to the first “self” post where I share the little things that have made me “me” since I was little.

Like I said on here, when I was in Portugal visiting my family, I got to look through old picture albums and visit my young self.

Well, I also got to visit (are you ready) a big bag of Barbies, Kens and Skippers that my mom has kept in the attic.

It had been years since I had seen these good old friends of mine.

I was a late bloomer for sure! I think I was still playing with Barbies at the age of 14.

I would spend hours taking them to the theater, parties and creating a world that I guess I thought was pretty fabulous. (little did i know that Ken was gay and him and Barbie could have had more fun at those fab parties)

Not only did I create a fabulous world for these friends of mine but, I also created a pretty fierce wardrobe for them.

That big bag of Barbies, Kens and Skippers is mostly filled with clothes that I made by hand and hand knitted sweaters (with matching skirts mind you) that I would sucker my mom into knitting.

So, it really doesn’t surprise me that I was taken with the fabulous world of fashion and worked retail all my life.

P.S.- If any of you would like to join in this “self” exercise, just leave me a comment letting me know you did so and link back!
