Name and date of Blue/Silver Barbie Space Dress

by Kelly
(Washington)



I have several dresses from the late 1980s and early 1990. I have done some searching online and have not found a guide for barbie clothes from this time frame. I have a Blue and Silver space dress that is one of my favorites and was wondering if you/anyone know the name and date. There is a tag, have included a picture. Not sure if the silver tights go with set or not. thanks.

Barbie Blue Nautical Halter Dress Identification?

nautical barbie dress

nautical barbie dress

Question:
Blue Nautical Barbie Halter Dress - It has a genuine barbie tag inside. snaps in front and ribbon wraps to tie in back.

My Answer:
I thought this one was going to be easy - I have that dress, it was in a collection I acquired and a Malibu Barbie was wearing it. (I also had a long dress I wore to a dance in 1976 that was very similar!) But I can't find it anywhere - which may mean it was 1980 or later. I do not think it came on a doll. Anyone know this dress?

Question About Superstar Barbie Fashion

by Spencer
(LA)


I'm looking for the name of the fashion on the cover of this book, I was looking to purchase it on eBay.

Hi Spencer -
That is the 1978 Superstar Barbie - she came in that outfit - it was updated from the 1977 hot pink satin halter dress.
I have that book & this is what it says:
"Superstar Barbie Doll
#9720
(1978)
The regular version of this doll was about the same as the preceding year's #9720, but this promotional issue had a different outfit and came with a free hair comb for the child. The long, slinky, striped glitter knit gown came with either silver-on-rose or an all raspberry version. Silver sequins were used to accent the neckline and to form the doll's evening turban. The doll also had a white maribou stole, rose Superstar shoes, and "diamond" earrings, necklace and ring."

You can see the page it is on & the pictures - go to this page on Amazon - mouse over the image of the book - in the search box put 161 & click to open page 161.
I could not find it on eBay.
Suzanne

Need help with identifying Jordache outfit for Ken?

by Michelle
(Central PA)


Hi,
I have an outfit that has the Jordache logo on the shirt and rear of the jeans. I think it also may have came with the cowboy hat. I don't know if this is a Ken outfit or maybe another one such as Donny Osmond or something. Does not have any label inside. Thanks so much!

Hi Michelle -
I am not familiar with this outfit - it may have possibly been on or for a newer Ken doll. I will see if I can find any info & will post it in case anyone else recognizes it.

Question about Barbie Clothing - Real of Not?

by Lynda
(San Diego)

REAL OR NOT?

REAL OR NOT?

I found this on eBay. Is it a real Barbie outfit? And if so, what is it called? There are no tags, and it closes with velcro.

Hi Lynda - I would say this is probably a "real" Barbie outfit, but it is not vintage. It looks like a much more modern ensemble. Maybe some will recognize it.

Your outfit is from the Spiegel Summer Sophisticate Barbie. I believe she came out in 1995.

(Thank you Charlene!!

THAT WAS FAST!
by: Lynda

Thank you for the info. I can't believe how fast I got an answer!!

ANOTHER QUESTION
by: Lynda

I'm not sure how to put this in a new question place, but here goes. I have some outfits with necklaces that don't open. How in the world am I supposed to get them on my Barbie? They don't stretch, and I can't believe I'm supposed to remove the head!!

Hi Lynda -
Several of the vintage reproduction ensembles do come with pearl necklaces with no clasp & you do have to remove the head to put the necklace on the doll. As far as I know, all of the vintage era necklaces had a clasp.

Velcro on Clothes
by: Tamara

Wondered if anyone knows when they started using Velcro on Barbie and Maddie Mod / Tressy/ Sindy clothes? Am trying to date a lingerie outfit that a precious piece was lost during the Holidays --and one of the remaining does have Velcro.

Barbie Clothing Id Request - 2 Superstar Era Items


I have two outfits I am trying to find the name for. The first is a dress with red and white horizontal stripes, 3/4 sleeves, gathered at the waist and open in the back. I think I got it between 1978 and 1984, but I am not certain. It has no tags, but I am certain it is genuine Barbie.

The other is a yellow jumpsuit with a halter-type top that ties on the back of the neck. It has purple, orange and red paint sploches on it and a matching jacket. It does not have any tags and I am not sure if it is genuine Barbie or not, but I think it is.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Identifying Barbie Shoes made in Hong Kong

by Heidi Warnke
(Indianapolis, IN)

Barbie saddle shoes

Barbie saddle shoes

Question:
Hello! Can you help me to ID these saddle shoes? They are marked "Hong Kong", and are the correct size for the pointed toe Barbie (not the flat footed one). The shoe material is rather flexible too, not too rigid.
Any information you have would be great! Thank you!


Answer:

I do not recognize the shoes or ever remember seeing them before. Barbie items were made in Hing Kong from 1970 to 1987, so they may possibly be from later years if they are a Barbie item. Were they found with other clothing items that might make them easier to date? Does anyone else recognize these?
Thanks!

Suzanne

They are from the barbie and the sensations collection. I have Bopsy and Barbie and they both came with these shoes. Barbie came with a cassette tape too.

Saddle Shoes
by: Martha

Hi
I was searching for informations about what Saddle shoes was and found this. I just bought 1988 Sensations Becky (Bibops) on a fleamarket, she is dressed but no shoes. I found out that she should be wearing black & white Saddle shoes so these shoes are most likely for her :)
Kind regards
Martha
