I mean, I had a Raggedy Ann doll and I never ever grew up thinking it's unfair that I don't have her red-orange yarn hair, large round head, shapeless body, and fingerless hands. And yes, I had two Barbie dolls, too, and I also never thought it was unfair that I had a vagina and Barbie didn't. I didn't go, "Barbie must have a vagina because if she didn't, then I can't relate to her and I will have serious issues with my vagina because my doll doesn't have one."
In fact, Barbie was such a good influence on me! All Barbie ever taught me was I can be anything and everything I want—have a career most especially!—while looking fantabulous!
That's why I'm so happy that Barbie has an Instagram account. I can stalk her outfits!
Now, I just got rid of half my wardrobe. The KonMari method said get rid of everything that doesn't spark joy. That would be my ENTIRE wardrobe. We can't have that. So I kept some while I earn enough money to shop for new clothes. I've decided on going black, white and gray. It's simpler.
Here are my style pegs:
|Full skirt, button-up shirt.|
Okay, I know I said no more colors in my closet but black and white look so nice with pink! Besides, black-white-pink-gold will be the look of the new Topaz Horizon. Maybe my wardrobe should reflect that, too!
Okay, I know I said no more color but I'm also liking red and orange!
I love how she repeats outfits! That means she has a capsule wardrobe of classics that she mixes and matches and accessorizes so that her looks seem endless.
So my style to-do list is:
1. Create a capsule wardrobe of classic pieces in black and white.
2. Add a few pieces in bold colors like pink, red and orange.
3. Invest in big Hollywood-style shades!
4. Invest in chunky gold pieces and statement shoes.
5. Invest in a hairstylist hahaha
