Prêt-a-Porter and Other Fashions

The last outfits that I bought at a great price were these two prêt-a-porter fashions (pardon me the photo quality, my camera was freaking out):

I love this type of fashions from the 90's. First of all, because they are from the time I started to play with Barbie dolls and my mother would always prefer to buy me more Barbie fashions and less Barbie dolls. Second, I consider this the golden age of Mattel's fashions: they were cute, realistic, well made, with quality materials and lots of pieces/accessories per set.
So I decided to photograph the other fashions I have from this time.

These I believe are Haute Couture dresses (perhaps except the one in the middle - I know it's a bridesmaid dress and it's older than the others). I think I found these in the Flea Market!

More Haute Couture gowns. The first on the left was actually my first Barbie outfit, for my Capri doll! The one in the middle is my favorite and it took a lot to get it.

These are Prêt-a-Porter fashions. The second and the third from the left are from my childhood, the other were bought later. Some of these fashions are composed by coats only so we have to had a little extra to them or the girls will freeze during Winter.
I think it's interesting to leave some pictures from booklet, back of boxes, etc so you can see these fashions by Mattel:

Congratulations on your great fashion finds, V! Bright colors, yes, but not painfully so like the color clashes seen today.

D7ana: yes, they were bright but that was the fashion back in the 80's/early 90's. Nowadays it's a Mattel annoyance --'

I like those bright fashions. They were cheerful. Today's combinations - pink, purple and turquoise - just seem garish.

I pinned two of your Etsy fashions one of to my Pinterest boards. Those are classy, classic looks ;-)

D7ana: Thank you so much for sharing them! I don't go to Pinterest very often but I do recognize its potential for spreading beautiful things ;)
