Reading Room: Barbie Solves a Mystery

It's been a while since we last visited Barbie, so I thought now would be a good time to check in.

Oh - hello Barbie! Look at how wrapped up you are in the world of journalism and the whirlwind excitement of the "fashion beat" in your small town.

Barbie, this old lady is giving you a run for your money, style-wise - her short, frizzy hair and crisp button down makes her the wiser, kookier Diane Keaton to your less-exciting and somewhat naive Mariel Hemingway. (Isn't it terrible that I can only describe style vibes by using other instances of style vibes?) Also, that guy on the right is Johnny, Barbie's newspaper colleague and crush du jour - or should I say du book.

Watch out, folks! Out-of-town career woman Dorian has entered the picture. Her short, bouffanted hair and seriously slick outfit marks her as a woman of intrigue, and possibly danger. We'll have to see what kind of trouble this lady stirs up next week. Stay tuned!
