Greetings! I’m Beth and want to welcome you to my new feature, Beth’s Best! I am a doll lover and am fortunate enough to work at My Doll’s Life, where I can be surrounded by 18 inch dolls, clothing and accessories! Everything for 18″dolls is right here and on Tuesdays, I get to play, create some adorable looks and share them with you! All the clothes fit American Girl® Dolls, Sophia’s®, Madame Alexander® and a variety of other 18 inch dolls.
To kick off my first post, I wanted to send our Catherine doll off to school, (which is so much easier than sending my daughter off to school on some mornings!) where she is teaching a geography lesson. Geography is not her favorite and she’s practicing her lesson at home to be sure she gets her facts correct! Since the weather here in the mid-Atlantic region is rainy, cold and overcast, Catherine still needs some layers to keep her warm. What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Since it is April after all, I chose a peasant top, SPWB-PT, which provides a bit of spring layering with the gauzy, pleated fabric and bell sleeves. A pink cardigan sweater, SW-TCARD-PK, can be worn over top if she gets cold walking between buildings on her school’s campus. I enjoy mixing traditional pieces with more trendy styles to create a unique look. Always a wardrobe staple, a good denim skirt can be worn for so many occasions. SPSK-ST has some studded details to update the traditional styling, creating a very contemporary skirt for 18″ dolls. I added a pair of pale pink tights DNT-PK since the temperature is hovering in the 50’s and provide a subtle hint of color against the hot pink patent rain wellies, SRRW-HP. Catherine’s purse comes in 3 different plaids: brown/pink, light pink/green and the one I choose, hot pink/teal. It coordinates so well with the wellies. Although DNP-HT is small, it will hold her adorable flower shaped sunglasses DNFSG, which also come in red and black polka dots! Sunglasses are a necessary fashion accessory even on a cloudy day!!!
See you all next week~ Beth
