Fashionista Barbie’s Friday Fashion Fix #1

I have been thinking for a while about doing a fashion fix, rounding up the big stories of the week, recapping some posts on Fashionista Barbie you might have missed, as well as cute pieces I have spied while shopping, as well as offering inspiration ahead of the weekend. The start of a new year seem like the perfect time to introduce it – so here is the debut Fashionista Barbie Fashion Fix – enjoy and do let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below.

It may only be January 4 but already it has been a busy one for the fashion and entertainment world with the news that Kim Kardashian is pregnant, I am sure magazines are already bidding for a naked cover, the  new spring campaigns, the gorgeous pre-fall collections, and the news that Louis Smith might be launching his own clothing line – see him looking dashing in the video at the bottom.

Spring Campaigns:


Lots have been released this week from Mulberry’s water-coloured ads featuring the gorgeous Meghan Collison, Raf Simons first Dior campaign – more surreal than flashy, and Kate Moss makes her Givenchy debut. One of my favourites still has to be Versace’s post apocalyptic glamour that was unveiled before Christmas.

Buy, Buy, Buy – the Roller Skates edition:skates

I know everyone is all about sales and bargains – but if you are after adding a little fun into your life why not pick up a pair of roller boots from Topshop. Yep, Topshop is selling old-school skates, and I so want a pair. Don’t fancy breaking a bone, why not settle for a cool piece of jewellery – I love Me & Zena’s purse friendly roller boot – but I adore Lauren Grace’s winged beauty.
