Barbie, Barbie, Barbie

I´m not gunna lie, the Barbie Museum in Shanghai was my absolute favouritist part of my time in Shanghai! (Don´t get me wrong everything else was great, but barbie just topped it).

The Museum/Shop was a cavern of pink. The spiral staircase was encase with hundreds of barbies dressed in pink. And barbie just dominated everywhere. It wasn´t really much of a Museum,it was a definite shop, but there were barbies from bygone years, barbies dressed in Christian Dior and Coco Chanel classics. (Sorry forthe confuddled nature of this paragraph there was just so much to take in, I can´t quite structure it). Barbies from around the world. A barbie salon. The grown up clothes were all awesome, i definitely wish i could have afforded a 40pound tshirt stating I LOVE KEN, all the grwon up clothes were designed by the brilliant Patricia Field. All the clothes except the Vera Wang Barbie Wedding Dress.

The highlight of the Barbie experience was the Afternoon Tea we indulged. It was a morning of excess as we splurged on a platter of bright pink fair cakes and tea. But it was well worth it. THe cakes looked so pretty and so barbie. It was amazing. We even got to watch a barbie cat walk which was fullof Birthday GIrls who had been treated to a Barbie Birthday. They got to design their own clothes with big bows, big flowers and loads of frills, and then they got to strut their stuff on the catwalk. Oh to be 7 again just for this.

It was a morning where I remembered allmy childhood love for barbie. Bliss.
