Vintage Barbie Fashion Pak Belle Dress
A prime example of Barbie's easy elegance with this classic dress and single strand of pearls. This pretty dress was done in polished cotton for this version and received an upgrade to silk Shantung in Campus Belle in 1964. This version is much easier to find - the cotton holds up very well. It features a bow at the waist and single pleat styling.

The dress has a self-fabric accent bow at the waist and snaps in the back. It has a v-neck and single pleat in the front.

In my experience, it seems like the blue color is the one seen the least.

Jackie Kennedy wearing Oleg Cassini Dress
It seems the inspiration for this dress is none other than First Lady Jackie Kennedy, as you can see in this photograph. It was designed by Oleg Cassini, her official designer while she lived in the White House.

The cotton version is easy to find. It is currently selling for around $100 if it has never been removed from the package and around $25 to $30 for a dress in near mint condition. Add another $10 to $20 if the necklace is included. Obviously the price decreases as the condition deteriorates.

Campus Belle (1964-1965)

Short White Gloves
White Open Toe Heels

It received a definite upgrade in 1964 with the addition of gloves and heels and a new silk Shantung fabric. These are much harder to find and more more valuable.

These dresses will sell for around $125 if they are near mint. They are so rare to find never removed from the package, I can't even venture a guess on the value.

There is a very rare very dark blue variation that sold in July 2013 for $285.
