Beth’s Best Popular Dorothy 18″ Doll Costume

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.

She will use the gingham scarf to cover her basket where she will keep a few treats for her Continue Reading →

Beth’s Best Between Class Catching Up!

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.

Beth’s Best 18″ Dolls’ First Week of School

Beth’s Best highlights the girl’s first week back to school. Sophia, Catherine and Julia are all on the same bus and can’t wait to share the day’s experiences.  Each of the girls chose a  special outfit for their first day and each day for the remainder of the week, they chose their outfits together. They love sharing their 18 inch doll clothes.  Because it is so chilly in the morning when she catches the bus, Sophia wanted to wear a sweatshirt she borrowed from Carly. SPHD-WH  looked super cute over her embroidered tank top for 18″ dolls SPTT-HP-NE. As it warmed up during the day, she could just tuck it into her carry bag.  Navy denim jeggings SPJ-DN are always comfy and Sophia loves to just put them on with everything. No need to borrow these as she has several pair in her 18 inch doll clothes wardrobe.  Wearing  white patent flats for 18in dolls SUB-WH is her final hurrah before fall.  She opted for a sport sack DNDB-ST in lieu of a traditional 18″ backpack  for the first few days until she had to carry her books home! Julia’s Continue Reading →

Beth’s Best Back to School Shopping for 18″Dolls

The end of August is rapidly approaching and that means Beth’s Best takes the 18″ dolls Back to School Shopping! It is rivaled only by shopping for school supplies, which the girls may be doing soon.  Fortunately for Sophia, Julia and Catherine, there was a new boutique that opened with a great selection of Back to School outfits for 18″ dolls.  Catherine was immediately drawn to a super cute 2 piece leggings set  DRTSD-BK for 18 inch dolls. The long sleeve tunic length top has a scooped neckline with an oversized matching satin bow detail. It is just perfect for the cooler fall temperatures ahead and the sequin trimmed black leggings were just her style. A special treat was the purchase of a zebra print handbag SH-ABZ and a pair of jeweled toe ballerina flats   that fit 18″ dolls S1LJ-BY. While styled like a shoulder bag, the purse is rounded with the large strap built into the design and the hot pink satin trim just pops against the black and white print. DRTLP-IS,  black leather pants, a multicolored sweater and infinity scarf 3 piece pants outfit Continue Reading →

Beth’s Best Starting Preseason Soccer Practice for 18”Dolls

Beth’s Best is highlighting preseason soccer practice for our 18” dolls. As much as the girls are loving summer vacation, Sophia and Carly are looking forward to preseason soccer practice at the new middle school field. For now, they are only having practice once daily, but as the school year gets closer, there will be the dreaded “two-a-days”.  This means early morning practice and a late afternoon practice and lots of icing in between!  Today Carly’s mom drove Sophia and Carly to the fields.  Carly was happy to be wearing last year’s jersey DRSO-ST. The bright star pattern jersey in this 18in doll 3 piece soccer outfit was fitting for the team name, The Superstars. Her feet didn’t grow much this summer so her last season’s black cleats for 18”dolls SSC still fit even under the heavy soccer socks, DNSK-BK. Sophia’s travel team uniform 3 piece soccer set for 18 inch dolls, DRSO-FS has a shimmery hot pink jersey which  matched perfectly with the fuchsia 18” doll soccer shoes SSC-FS they wore.

Not long after being dropped off at the fields and going through the warm up exercises, the sky Continue Reading →

Beth’s Best Camping Adventure with 18″ Dolls

Beth’s Best takes the 18″ dolls on a camping adventure.  Carly’s parents have a small camper and invited Sophia and Catherine along for a few days in the great outdoors. They usually frequent a campground only a short 2 hr drive from their neighborhood. It has a super fun lake with a floating dock they can swim out to.  Carly brought her spacious purple Coleman tent that fits American Girl dolls, JL-T-PU so that they can spend the night outdoors (away from the grown ups!) and stay up a bit later than usual laughing and telling stories. This 18″ doll tent  will sleep all of them very comfortably and they can even stand up inside.  Since the weather has been so hot, swimming, tubing and staying close to the lake was all the girls could think of.  Coincidentally, bathing suits take up very little space in a backpack MABP-LP and will certainly be the preferred outfit throughout the weekend. Carly‘s 18 inch doll swimsuit felt a bit “dressy” for this trip but she adores it and wears it all of the time.  DRBOS-BK is a black polka dot one piece 18″ doll swimsuit Continue Reading →
