Nobody likes an 18″ Doll Dress Sale better than Beth and the girls, so she is sharing her passion in today’s Beth’s Best Dress Sale! Sophia has just discovered a store with some super cute 18″ doll dresses, 18″ doll shoes and accessories all on sale! Dresses are dressy and there are some even ball gowns that fit American Girl dolls that might be perfect for halloween…and they are on sale! Gathering her selections in the dressing room, Sophia didn’t know where to begin. First, she tried on a very conservative holiday dress for 18in dolls, DRHD-NV because she knows that she’ll need something fancy to wear during the next several months. Velvet, being the fabric of the season, brings this traditional styled doll dress into the trends of today. The top of the dress is made from a rich blue fabric while the slightly full skirt is a textured satin fabric adding dimension to this elegant dress. Rosettes in ivory satin embellish the waistband which Sophia just loved. She found these very cool 18in doll fur jacket accessories that she was playing around with over top. Great look, right! These jackets for 18 inch dolls DRFCJ come in several colors: white, black, berry and light pink. She was so excited to think about all of the other outfits she could top off with this funky jacket! Then there was this other velvet number, DRBVD-HP which would be awesome for the holiday dance! A hot pink polka dot satin skirt is topped with a black velvet top. “This doll dress for 18 inch dolls can’t also be on sale” she thought! Then she couldn’t resist the amazing ball gowns, which she wanted to try on for Halloween…since she had no immediate plans to attend anything that fancy!!! DRCPD-TW was what every 18″doll fairy princess wanted to wear. It comes with a tiara, a wand and looks just perfect with the silver high heel shoes that fit American Girl dolls, SPH-SL. While strapless doll dresses are new to her 18 inch doll wardrobe, Sophia was excited to try on the pink strapless ball gown for 18″ dolls DRBGS-LP. Such a beautiful shade of pink, one of Sophia’s favorite colors, the satin bodice and tulle covered ball gown was exquisite. Accessories that come with this gown for an 18 inch doll are long pink opera gloves and a tiara! WOW! Her next trip into the dressing room will be for shoes, and accessories! She best decide quickly as the sale on these 18″ doll dresses, shoes and accessories ends tomorrow!
It seems that a very popular 18″doll costume is Dorothy, from the Wizard of Oz. Year after year, the blue gingham pinafore and infamous ruby red slippers are worn by dolls, children and adults! Beth’s Best wanted to feature this traditional and somewhat iconic costume for 18″ dolls. Catherine wanted to be Dorothy this year since she’s got a cuddly little dog that could serve as her Toto! She found the entire 5 piece costume including socks and shoes. QS-DRWO2, is an adorable 5 piece 18″ doll costume that easily replicates Dorothy from Kansas even down to her ankle socks and ruby slippers. The blue gingham apron pinafore dress has ruffle details at the shoulders and patch pockets and is worn over a crisp white white collared romper. The romper actually looks like a peter pan collared short sleeved shirt which is actually connected to shorts! Catherine loves this since she intends to be out trick or treating for hours and this costume is super comfy! Both pieces have a hook and loop closure in back. She will use the gingham scarf to cover her basket where she will keep a few treats for her pooch, LA-AP. She wants her mom to braid her hair and maybe Sophia can do french braids since her mom is still learning how to do them! To complete her 18″ doll costume, Catherine has white 18 inch doll lace trimmed ankle socks, DNSLA to wear with a pair of cool red glitter shoes for 18in dolls, SRS-RD. She is super excited to go house to house saying, “There’s no place like home” instead of trick or treat!
With so many cooking shows on, Beth’s Best takes the 18″ Dolls to Cooking Class. This year, they get to have Family and Consumer Science which teaches cooking, sewing and basic life skills. Sophia and Catherine are super excited to have cooking class first! The first week was so boring because they just talked about cooking, kitchen safety and other stuff that was not cooking! Today, they are actually starting with Mac and Cheese. Catherine’s apron set for 18″ dolls, DRBA, comes with the adorable polka dot apron, oven mitts, and chef’s hat. Good thing it covers her yellow tee shirt, SPTS-CF-YL, because she tends to be a bit messy in the kitchen! How cute that her 18 inch doll shoes, SVS-HP, match! They were the first she grabbed as she headed out the door to catch the school bus. She didn’t even plan that to happen! She is carefully taking out the class sample from the oven. Careful Catherine, it’s very hot! You might want your other oven mitt! Sophia is very busy with today’s Mac and Cheese perparation. LA-BS, the complete 23 piece baking set for 18in dolls, has all of the tools needed to create her delicious masterpiece. The milk and cheese went into the mixer and the other ingredients were handy in their canisters. The teacher had demonstrated the next assignment, which is baked goods…and left a tiered tray JL-DDS with all sorts of goodies! There were cupcakes, petit fours and donuts! Both the girls were salivating just thinking about enjoying those! While they love the cooking part of the class, the clean up part is not as much fun. Just look at the pile of dirty dishes already filling up the sink! Bon Appetite!
Now that the girls are fully immersed back at school, catching up between classes is sometimes all our gals get to do until the weekend. Sophia, Catherine and Julia met after lunch at their lockers to share some stories and some laughs! LA-L, their 18″ doll lockers are full to the brim with sporting gear, books and assorted stuff. While there was not a formal outfit coordination, it might as well have been “skirt day” at school as each of the gals was wearing an adorable 18 inch skirt outfit. Sophia loves this 2 piece skirt set for 18in dolls. This set features a long sleeve graphic tee shirt that fits most 18 inch dolls. The snow leopard face covers the entire front of the tee and a hook and loop closure makes it a snap to put on. Faux turquoise suede fabric is a great cool weather color and this 18in doll skirt had covered buttons in front and a scalloped hemline. Sophia’s doll shoes are very trendy and complement the turquoise skirt perfectly. S2T-CF are turquoise patent leather doll shoes that fit American Girl dolls. The “T” strap design, decorative bow and hook and loop closure allow this shoe to fit many 18″ dolls. But Sophia is in a hurry…grabbing her silver backpack and putting on her reading glasses, she promises to catch up with Julia and Catherine on Friday night. Catherine needs to remember to put away her owl lunch bag, which still has a granola bar inside! Her 2 piece 18″ doll skirt set, SH-ZT-HP, is a bit summery but Catherine is not yet accepting that the weather is changing! Inside her locker is her varsity jacket for 18in dolls which she needs in the morning waiting for the bus. She agreed to not wear sandals but ballet flats to help keep her feet a bit warmer! They look great with this outfit as well as some of the other more seasonal doll clothes she has in her wardrobe. Off to class, notebook in hand and books in her backpack, Catherine has just enough time to tell a funny story about someone in her math class with the hiccups that lasted all class! Julia is just going to study hall and doesn’t need to hurry off and she has lots to chat about! It will just have to wait until their sleepover this Friday, after the football game. In the meantime, Julia’s 18″ doll skirt outfit SH-DS-LT also has a long sleeve graphic tee (do you detect a theme?) and denim skirt with sequin trim. Her hot pink ballet flats are the perfect shoe to wear all year. The color pops and the bow detail makes these easy to dress up or down. So off to class they go, full of the tales of the day to make the Friday night sleepover a night to recap the week!
