Nautical Nymph

Ahoy! :D I’m all set for sailing with my first vintage outfit, the Barbie Resort Set # 963, produced from 1959 to 1962. I’m wearing a white hat, a red jacket, a navy and white stripe shirt, and white cuff shorts. The set also includes a white vinyl cork wedge shoes and gold charm bracelet, but since they are much rarer and harder to obtain, the price is much steeper. Tin got my outfit for a reasonable price sans the last two items.

For more info about Vintage Barbie and Friends dolls, outfits, and accessories, visit Fashion Doll Guide. If you’re interested in collecting vintage outfits for your dolls, there’s an updated (I think) ebay listing below every outfit in their site. :)

P.S The colors of my outfit reminds me of Blair Waldorf’s signature color palette in the first season of Gossip Girl. I heard season three will premiere on September 14. I’m looking forward to the clothes that Blair would be wearing. :)

It's amazing how vintage fashion looks great even with modern dolls.

I agree. I think vintage fashion has a way of making any doll look classy. :)
