I picked up all the new BeForever outfits a few weeks ago, immediately after they were released.  Now they’re all on sale for about 20% off.  Sigh.  But these photos I took may benefit some of you who are thinking about grabbing these items now that they are on sale.  I was gonna post a really clever story about all of them, but I ran out of energy.  I’m pretty sure I have pneumonia, because everything inside my rib cage is aching as if I’ve done hours of heavy lifting (I haven’t).

So enough complaining, and on to the photos I took a couple weeks ago!

Ivy in Julie’s coat and beret:

Kirsten in Julie’s skateboard outfit:

Mia in Julie’s Maxi Dress:

Kailey showing off Julie’s new sunglasses (she dropped Julie’s tie-dye bag behind the TV…I think I’m gonna have to punish her):

Lindsey in Julie’s Funky Flower Outfit:

Ruthie in Kit’s Springtime dress:

McKenna with Kit’s new overalls and chicken:

Isabelle in Rebecca’s bathing suit:

Julie in her holiday dress and egg chair:

Nellie in Samantha’s Special Day dress:

Felicity in Samantha’s dress:

Chrissa in Samantha’s travel set (and Samantha’s old dress):

Saige in Samantha’s Flower Picking outfit (and the hat from her hairstyling set):

Addy’s new dress:

Marie-Grace in Addy’s sewing dress:

Kaya’s new shawl outfit:

There are some really great outfits in this set.  My first thoughts were “nice, but I wish they didn’t cost so much.”  The sale prices make them just about right.  Not exactly a bargain (like $55 Julie doll from the today show), but a fair price.  I wonder how long these “limited edition” outfits will be around.  I’m also surprised Caroline and Josefina got left out for this release.  Are they on their way out?  While I would be sad to see them go, I hear we’re getting new historical characters soon!  We’ll talk more about that later.  So long for now!

Finally, the last chapter of what I got for Christmas!

My mommy has been hunting on ebay lately, and she found me 4 retired American Girl outfits!  Four!!!!  Chrissa is modeling a Halloween costume from the late 90s, Felicity is in her Spring Dress and Pinner Apron, Kirsten is in her work dress, and Samantha is in her bathing costume!  So cute!

So that’s what my dollies got for Christmas.  I got a kayak and a unicorn wearing Lederhosen.  Pretty great Christmas,  I’m a little ashamed that I will still have a Christmas tree up in February.  I wanted to leave it up for a little bit past new years, but then January slipped away from me, and I’m leaving for vacation on Tuesday, and yeah, the tree will still be up in February.  Oh well.  It’s a really pretty tree!

Merry Christmas!

We made it!  Here is the last of my historical collection, Kaya.  Kaya is a Nez Perce Girl.  Nez Perce lived in areas of what is now Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.  She has just a few outfits and a teepee:

I was hoping that Kaya would get more of a makeover for BeForever.  Would it kill American Girl to give her more outfits?

Let’s look back at everything:

I just want to shout out that I love the historical characters!  These oufits and accessories are what made me fall in love with American Girl the moment I got my first catalog in the 90s.  My favorite is Molly because she was my first.  Who’s your favorite?

Finally.  Time to see my Felicity collection.  Sorry it took so long.  Life happened.

Here’s the group photo: Elizabeth’s riding outfit, Felicity’s riding outfit, Felicity’s Rose Garden gown, Elizabeth’s tea lesson gown, Felicity’s traveling gown, Felicity’s tea lesson gown, Elizabeth’s starter gown, Felicity’s Christmas dress, Felicity’s gala gown, Elizabeth’s holiday dress

Oops, I forgot to wake up these girls for the photo:

Marie-Grace is wearing Elizabeth’s nightgown (that I recently got on ebay for cheap) and Kanani is wearing Felicity’s nightgown (that my mommy made for me)

Here are some closeups:

Sorry it’s been a while.  I was in Disneyland.  It’s time for Addy!

forever samantha and addy 033

Ruthie in Addy’s Nightgown, Marisol in Sunday Best, Kit in the new Addy outfit, Nicki in the new school suit, Kailey in winter coat and hat, Caroline in Christmas dress, Elizabeth in Flower Picking dress, Felicity in Plaid Summer Dress, Samantha in Addy’s dress, Addy in her birthday pinafore, Gwen in the striped dress, and Nellie in the summer dress

Here’s more!  Kit is having trouble pulling off Addy’s new bonnet:

Marisol in Addy’s purple Sunday Best Dress:

Elizabeth and Felicity:

I think Addy is a lucky girl because she has a mother who is a dressmaker.  I doubt many escaped slaves had clothes as nice as Addy’s.  But they are gorgeous, aren’t they?

Say hello to Samantha, the first American Girl to come back from retirement!  Here is my Samantha collection:

forever samantha and addy 001

I can see my mother rolling her eyes at my third dolly bicycle, but I couldn’t resist free shipping!

Here’s Samantha in the winter coat that came out around the same time as Samantha’s movie:

forever samantha and addy 007

Marisol looks sensational in Samantha’s Cranberry Party Dress:

forever samantha and addy 008

Here’s Gwen in the new winter coat:

forever samantha and addy 009

Samantha’s bike is really beautiful.  Critics say it’s too modern, but someone on the dolly boards found a vintage advertisement for a bicycle that came in vermilion, and safety bicycles were first designed in 1876 according to Wikipedia.  Mia looks gorgeous in the pink hair ribbon and turquoise-accented blouse:

forever samantha and addy 010

Here’s Caroline in Samantha’s new meet dress (which I think is pretty mediocre) and Kanani in the Frilly Frock…

forever samantha and addy 014

…that I think is amazing!

Nellie looks quite sophisticated in the dress she borrowed from Samantha:

Rebecca models Samantha’s new holiday set:

Poor Kaya is dressed to be shipped off to boarding school:

And Kirsten borrows Nellie’s dress, which happens to be her favorite color:

Best Friends Forever Elizabeth and Felicity display timeless beauty:

I have mixed feelings about Samantha’s return.  Her new collection is very pink, but I’m eager to see future releases.  Who wants to share their favorite Samantha outfit, new or retired?

I really like Kit’s new outfits, but they seem more 50’s than 30’s to me.  But what do I know, that was decades before my existence!

Hello!

I’ve been admiring my girls all week in their new Beforever outfits, and I’ve been wondering how they fit in with the rest of each girl’s collection.  So I decided to dig out all of my outfits from the historical collection, and photograph them all.  This might take a while.  I decided to start with Julie and work back in time.  Let’s start with the group photo:
