, Barbie and Erté’s fashion paper doll books


I love shopping online and I love when I find something new that reminds me of something old. I used to love playing with dolls. I don’t remember how many dolls I had but I wasn’t into stuff: the house, the car etc. It’s odd now that I think about it, as I’m still not into all that stuff. I used to love paper doll books too and I’d never cut them up; I’d just admire them. I was browsing My and there are a couple of functions that seem really reminiscent of playing with dolls and paper dolls.

Both of the functions take place in the fitting room.

1. Products – If you click “day dresses” you’ll see all the day dresses. The images are quite small so it has a paper doll effect – which I quite like. (It’s not the only way to see the items, there is a see all function if you start of at Clothing – which then has larger images.)
2. Looks – If you click on any of the images you get a mood board of look and you can click on each garment for more information. it’s kind of fun!

…and for the real thing – check out Erté’s fashion paper doll books!

    I loved playing with paper dolls as a little girl. I also had a few Barbie’s, but all I did was dress them up all day – oh, and once in awhile they went on a horse ride ;)

    Hi Rebekah,

    Found a lot of those books in Dover Book Shop in Covent Garden; covers many eras of costume history: from Victorian to 1920s. Lovely trip into nostalgia.
