What a dream it would be to live the fabulous life of Barbie, it’s something most of us have day dreamed since we were in our single digit years. Dolly Forever Barbie has hit the high-end boutique of Christian Louboutin and along with her chic outfit, gold-toned accessories, magenta knee high fringed Tina boots, and her great hair; Barbie walks out of the boutique with not one but three different pairs of the infamous red-soled shoes. Lucky gal! I love how incredibly detailed each pair of shoes are, as they represent actual styles by the House of Louboutin and each arrives in its very own shoebox and shopping bag as well. This fabulous Barbie doll is meant for the child within each of us ladies or simply for the fashion collector who seeks a one of a kind piece. For $150, you can get your hands on the most envious of all dolls, by shopping online through: NET-A-PORTER.COM
Just in time for spring, there’s a new Little Miss Marc for your chic Little Miss / Designer bag-a-holic in training.
Dressed in a sailing-inspired nautical outfit, this Little Miss comes on the backpack pictured above. It features easily adjustable button straps, drawstring closure and french cotton fabric. In the description they say that this bag is machine washable. Which is perfect for the obvious reason that your little bagista-in-training probably isn’t going to take as well of care of this designer Marc Jacobs bag, as you do with yours. But to keep this bag looking as new as possible, and the image from fading, I would recommend washing by hand.
The Little Miss Marc Canvas Backpack retails for $59. Much more affordable than our designer label bags, wouldn’t you agree?

Okay I have mixed feelings about this one. I do love the idea of Baby Bling, but for me the first image that popped in my head was Mr. Yuk, a trademarked image widely employed in the United States in labeling of substances that are poisonous if ingested. Can you blame me? I was an 80′s baby, those stickers were everywhere. Do they even give those stickers out still?
Now I’m not saying that the graphic images are identical, however there are the slight similarities, and to a little 1 year old, I’m sure they look all the same.
