Tip of the Day for 18″ Doll Collectors

If you are like so many of us without electricity, how do you pass the time ? I thought that it was a good opportunity to organize. Pick a drawer that is easy to move to a light source. I chose to do my bedside tables…always full of special letters and notes from my children. My kid’s drawers, however, are full do doll clothes and accessories. Spending some time laying out all of their outfits and then with our joint creativity, we began to make lots of other outfits that they wanted to dress their dolls in. Photographing the outfits allowed us to make a wonderful “look book” for use at any time…play dates with friends or runway fashion shows. Storing outfits in plastic food storage bags can assist you with remembering your new looks if you don’t have a camera! Not only did this help pass the time, we had a blast designing some awesome outfits! While many of us were not in harms way with hurricane Sandy or perhaps mildly inconvenienced, please remember all those who were affected by this unprecedented storm.

Doll Collector’s Weekend Guide

If you are surrounded by colorful leaves and cooler temperatures, you might want to take your American doll out to an orchard to pick some local apples. This fruit is at it’s peak now and what a great way to spend time with family being outdoors picking juicy apples. Now, once you have your apples you can be a culinary creator! Will it be apple pie, caramel apples, baked apples, apple sauce? The possibilities are endless and delicious. If your 18″ doll is looking for a great outfit for apple picking, try a pair of distressed jeans SPFJ-DS with a long sleeved striped tee shirt SPLST. Top it off with a fleece sweatshirt SPSS and a pair of boots SEB.

Tip of the Day for 18″ Doll Collectors

Having a few key accessories can help extend your 18″ doll’s wardrobe and easily turn one outfit into many. For example, our olive military jacket, SPMJ-OL, can be worn over a tank top with jeans or with a skirt and dressy shirt, making each of these looks very different when worn without the jacket. How about a pair of Ewe Boots, SEB. These are an incredible accessory as boots are worn with everything from skirts, pants, leggings and dresses. Add a pair of leggings DNL to change the look of a shorter length dress into a 2 piece set, or have your 18 inch doll wear leggings under a mini skirt or belted top. Be creative when changing your American doll’s looks. By incorporating a few accessories into her wardrobe, you can create lots of different looks without breaking your budget!
