Think Barbie doll shoes merely consist of typical 90s style “Barbie” pink high heel pumps? If so, you're in for a great BIG shock! Let's just say that Barbie's shoe closet has somewhat, “expanded” since our youth. Well, mine anyhow!
Designer Barbie Doll Shoes
Unless you're specifically into miniatures & Barbie styling, you've probably no idea of the amazing selection of Barbie shoes, clothing & lifestyle items that exist today. No more dowdy “stewardess” type outfits. No more simple silly frilly fashion. And definitely no more basic plastic pink houses for this lady! No Ma'am.
Barbie's all about high fashion nowadays. Heck, I don't blame her! I mean, did you know that Christian Louboutin designed a collection specifically for Barbie? Inspired by his actual women's shoe designs? They're so delicious, I almost want to eat them! Each Barbie Louboutin shoe even comes with its own original shoe box, signature red shoe bag & everything! And perfectly crafted REAL designer Christian Louboutin sandals, is just the start. From Alexander McQueen “Armadillo” heels, to Jeffrey Campbell, Giuseppe Zanotti & Vivienne Westwood-inspired shoes & boots, B definitely has her pick of the designer shoe litter. How lucky is she?!

But from what I hear, getting your hands on these perfect little plastic heels isn't always that easy. It can be quite tedious to find specific Barbie doll clothes & accessories that you might looking for. And Ebay & Kijiji don't offer the greatest online retail experiences. And let's not mention the lack of customer service! So knowing where to find these little treasures is key. Really, wouldn't it be amazing to find the crème de la crème of Barbie doll lifestyle products including doll shoes, furniture, fashion & even sweet rides, all in one fashionable online shop?
Well, Tiny Frock Shop is that place! And it's nothing like your ordinary Barbie doll clothes shops. And not only because it carries a heck of a lot more stylish dolly shoes than most online destinations. With a mix of homemade & commercially produced second hand goods, there's a reason behind Tiny Frock Shop's amazing aesthetic.

Before creating her Barbie consignment shop, owner & founder Pamela Thomspon had a successful career as a New York City fashion designer. Dubbed the “Satorialist of Barbie” she has worked as head designer for the likes of Anna Sui & Betsey Johnson, just to name a few. After a relocating to Chicago with her family, Pamela's thirst for fashion needed to be quenched. The colorful result was Tiny Frock Shop.
It takes just a one quick glance to see that this idea was born from an actively creative mind! It definitely takes talent to create such perfectly curated & screech-inducing cuteness that this little used goods shop embodies! In addition, Tiny Frock Shop also features trend forecasting for the 12″ beauty based. What the WHAT you ask? Yep, the shop analyzes trends from each & all of the most prestigious Fashion Week shows & caters the results to Barbie! See the fabulousness of trending Barbie fashion on TFW's Facebook page.
