Day 151: Saturday Night
I have a vintage set of Barbie and Ken dolls that the kids inherited from their grandmother. The most fun of the set is some of the accessories these dolls came with, and can you believe, Ken use to actually have socks!? Today’s shot pokes a little fun at Barbie and Ken, all dressed up watching TV with their assortment of accessories surrounding them. Ken’s reading literature is a riveting self-help book on “How to Get a Raise” and Barbie’s is about “How to Lose Weight.” Barbies were so serious minded in the 60’s.
