Look what I got in the mail today. A Barbie catalog. I love Barbies for what they are: a kitchy, fashion icon with sci-fi proportions. I do not want to look like Barbie, nor like the waif models who are still the dominant body type in fashion media today (by nature or by photoshop). But I still have my 13 year old moments, as described in this classic tune, where I tell myself the wrong story and believe it (Thanks for the spellbinding images, Ingmar Bergman). Thankfully, those moments are few and far between, the older I get.
On a related note, notice how my 4 year old daughter, Beatrix, has already put her mark on each Barbie? Hmmmm.
