Vintage Barbie Evening Gown

It's funny, the things that you come across sometimes. Yesterday I experienced a bit of life's serendipity when my daughter brought over a book she came across called "The Collectible Barbie Doll" from 1999. It's a lot of fun flipping through the pages and seeing Barbie fashions through the years, and I promise I'll do a more in-depth look at them soon. As I was flipping, I stopped at the page that showed this outfit:

This Barbie outfit was an exclusive stock #1600 series which was sold only in Europe in 1966. Now, check this out:

This vintage 60's evening gown with matching coat is currently available at Couture Allure! Mine doesn't have a fur collar, but isn't that cool? You can dress as well as Barbie does!
