It's cold, we're exhausted and getting sick. But then our FedEx guy arrived with Barbie iDesign, and all was good again. The case bragged: "Be Your Own Stylist!", "Dress Barbie Like You've Always Wanted!" Visions of retro Barbie in a white ruched bathing suit with vintage shades danced in our head. But once we reached the design room, where Barbie stands on a pedestal while you swipe clothing cards to dress her, we came to the harsh realization that at some point in the last fifteen years, Barbie started turning tricks. Our clothing options were cropped tops, laced biker jackets, embroidered jeans and pink platform shoes. We could even dress Barbie in a pleather mini dress and have a miniature dalmation nipping at her heels. The few times we've dreamed of being a stylist, we've envisioned racks packed with Proenza Schouler, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. But Barbie looks thrilled with her choices. At left, the most conservative outfit we could find.
