Outfit of the Week Celebrates Memorial Day

Posted on by Tori Hall

This week’s Outfit of the Week will start to get everyone in the spirit of Memorial Day. Celebrated on the last Monday in May, Memorial Day honors those who gave their lives while serving in the military.  A red, white and blue 18″ cheerleader costume plus sneakers will be perfect for your 18″ doll and get her ready for a celebration.  A cheerleading squad will be featured in the local Memorial Day Parade this year. The girls are so excited and have been practicing day and night to be sure that their routine is perfect!    In addition, they all got new uniforms in red, white and blue for the event! DRCO-RN is a 2 piece cheerleading costume for 18″ dolls. Having a sleeveless top will be great if the weather is warm and the red chevron stripe detail against the blue fabric looks amazing.  A hook and loop closure in the back will make this a perfect fit for many 18 inch dolls.  We just love the 3 kick pleats in the front of the white skirt.

Beth’s Best for 18″ Doll Clothes

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!

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.

Celebrate the ASPCA® with the Outfit of the Week
