I love this. I had a Barbie Burger King just like this that I bought from the thrift store when I was 8 or 9. I guess Barbie and Ken just came from the Honky Tonk club to eat some Quarter Pounders (I don’t think the Big Mac was around in 1983 yet?) at 9:30 at night or something.

The JC Penny catalogue calls these clothes retro. Keep in mind this photo was taken in 1983. We look at those clothes now and call them retro. I don’t know which time period JC Penny was referring to when they called these clothes retro in 1983. We they talking about fall of 1982?
