Taylor Swift's 1989 album is available for purchase today, and it's only a matter of time before we're all singing along to every song just like we did with Shake it Off. For those who buy a physical copy of the album, Taylor is throwing a handful of Polaroids— because that's what a girl does for her besties. But T. Swift isn't the only one who can mass produce Polaroids. Next month, the brand is bringing its Fotobar pop-up to Westfield Centre so you can make your very own throwback photos. It's not just a place to print square snaps; the concept space will be a 300-square-foot store where you can convert the digital photos on your phones, tablets, social network accounts and smart cards into physical pieces of art, Twice reports. A Polaroid rep tells us that it will open on Level 2 in the Nordstrom wing in late November. Prepare yourself: Retro photos are about to have a moment.
