A Couple of Unidentified Barbie Fashions (late 80s and early 90s)
« on: Sunday 09 January 2011, 12:57 am »
First, this dress. It is genuine Mattel Barbie. I know that it was sold separately from a doll:



Secondly. I got this in a lot. I do not know 100% for certain that it is Mattel but I SWEAR that I had a Barbie outfit that had this exact piece. It might have been a different color but I think it was pink. Any ID's for this piece or similar pieces in other outfits would be appreciated. :) I'm trying to remember all my childhood Barbie pieces (this isn't just "what is this random thing I found"). :-P

I have a pink jacket like that. I got it in one of those large Barbie fashion sets that comes with 3 pairs of shoes and about 6 dresses.

There are some on this page.

Hmm. I suspect that as well but I still haven't seen a picture of a set with my items.

It would have been from the Barbie Pink Stamp Club era. I had some packs of cards and pink club t-shirts for my Barbies. :D

I feel like I also had an outfit like the pink one on the very very left. (But maybe in a different color).

I remember the off-the-shoulder pale pink top and the laciness?

The sets seem to be put together and not random and I know I probably only got one if this is what I had. And I didn't have the other outfits...

My set came with a peach and silver princess style dress with bows on the shoulders, a silver bolero jacket, a white tube dress with pink, purple, and blue splatters on it, and a halter dress with a pinkish bodice with a striped metallic skirt.

I found some of the other outfit pieces from my set. Do any of them look familiar to you?

Here's another. This dress is genuine Barbie. I can't seem to find which one it was?



I received it the same time I got one of the Active Wear Fashion sets for Ken.

Oh, yay, I think I found it now that I rechecked?

It was from one of the many "Bridal Collections" (1990) - #779-1



Now to identify the fashions...

I checked my Mattel catalogues - 1985, 1989 and 1990 and I didn't see either piece.  My gut says the denim trimmed one is a Skipper fashion from 88 or maybe 87 - don't remember acid wash being popular before then.  Sorry I can't get more specific than that.

I'm pretty sure it is for 11 1/2" Barbie - it's open in the back. Here's one being sold on eBay:

Cool times Barbie comes with a pink jacket just like that but yours looks like its a different material.
