Paul's Boutique Loves Barbie

10 August, 2009

Everyone's favourite trash glam accessories brand, Pauls Boutique have joined up with Barbie to celebrate her 50th Birthday. The Collection consists of 9 bags and purses, most of which, as you would expect from this collaboration are pink and girly. The others are a bit blah, other than the small Barbie logo on them, there is nothing differentiating them from the other Pauls Boutique bags.

If that didn't deter you from snapping up one of the bags, than this probably will, purses start at £35, and bags start at £80....Am I the only one who thinks that this is ridiculously priced for a tacky, 100% Polyurethane bag,with a few ribbons and charms, that will break in less than a week.

That being said, I have kind of fallen in love with this bag,and all of the purses, but I have a thing about buying purses that cost more than the money that will be inside it.

The Collection is available in all Selfridges stores and on for a limited time only.

ETA:  Summer 2010 Update This was one of my first proper blog posts and is probably the one that still gets me the most hits to this day (which is kind of embarrassing because it's kinda crap) so I thought it would be a good idea to keep this updated.

This was supposed to be a *Limited edition* collection but it's been almost a year and it's still available so it doesn't look like it will be going anywhere any time soon.  
 Many of the bags/purses shown below are still available and some of them are currently on sale at ASOS for as little as £28 for purses and £45 for bags, and both Paul's Boutique and Selfridges now offer online shopping which means there are now even more ways on getting your hands on one of these lovely creations without leaving your house!!
