Normally, Barbie is an image of unrealistic perfection, holding down thousands of jobs without ever letting a blonde hair fall out of place -- but in this Barbie Instagram series, she's just trying to get through the day like the rest of us.

In the Honest NYC Barbie Instagram, Barbie is shown in an all-black outfit with big square glasses, running through New York City, getting her heel stuck in the subway grates, dodging flying trash, and working a job that has nothing to do with her college degree. In other words she's just a regular girl, living through all the trials and tribulations that come along with residing in a massive urban center.

Recently, a similar Barbie Instagram account had its fifteen minutes of fame. The Hipster Barbie account was a satire of the girl who presents her life in the most perfect, polished way possible via Instagram.
