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!

Ever since I posted old vacation photos on Monday, I’ve been yearning for another vacation!  Too bad my boss is failing to approve any vacation requests.  So, let’s look back on the adventures that my dollies and I have been on over the last few years…

Today I went to the Olympic Ballet Theatre’s production of the Nutcracker.  I brought Isabelle.

We commuted down on Thursday, and Isabelle looked super adorable:

Her ballet bag is from the Maplelea set called Pirouettes and Plies.  Isabelle had to pack for an overnight trip, and this bag worked great!

Here’s a couple pictures once we arrived at the theater:

We met some friends there:

And here’s a cute photo of some little legs (both human and vinyl)

And a group photo:

Fun day!

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:

2 dolls, 1 story.  Cecile and Marie-Grace are special, and they were with us for such a short time.  But they are so elegant!  I’m going to miss them so much.  I really doubt their collections will be returning any time soon.

Enough sadness.  How about some photos?

Isabelle looks really really cute in Marie-Grace’s pink dress.  I took a lot of Cecile and Marie-Grace photos earlier this year.  Here’s a link to that post.

So I wanna know, does anyone else love Cecile and Marie-Grace as much as I do?  Word on the street is that the collection was retired after just 3 years because it wasn’t selling well.  What do you think of Cecile and Marie-Grace’s collection?

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:

Oh man, I forgot about this outfit in the group photo because I’m storing it in the box with the disco ball. Oh well. No retakes!

I went to the American Girl store yesterday to check out the new BeForever stuff.  That by itself made for a happy day.  Then after the store my mommy and I went to the park to play dress up with the Samantha I brought and my mom’s Samantha and her doll named PJ.
