Hi, it’s Beth…back for Beth’s Best for 18″ Dolls. Lots of kids will be attending their proms or formal school dances and our girls are getting ready to go too! It is so exciting and quite an exhausting process. First, all of the girls needed to get their dresses. I have chosen selections from Clearance category as these events can get expensive and these 18″doll dresses are all specially priced! Carly, Catherine, and Sophia chose to wear shorter length dresses and their friend Ellie went for the long, formal look. Carly is wearing DRSD-BL, a blue satin, one shoulder 18in doll dress. Ruching at the shoulder and hemline create a sophisticated profile and although Carly’s sprained ankle will prevent her from getting out on the dance floor, she feels like the dress will stay put on top! Lucky for her, this 18″ doll dress also comes with a matching purse so she has been designated to hold everyone’s lip gloss! Doctor’s orders to stay off the leg is keeping her in the wheelchair and she has learned to spin it around to her favorite music. Silver sequin sneakers for 18″ dolls, S3-SQ-SL, are comfy, look dressy and fit over that swollen ankle! Catherine fell in love with her white empire waist dress ensemble, DRWSD-SP. Blue is her favorite color and after seeing the decorative bow and matching shawl, she knew this was the 18in doll party dress for her! Lucky for her, she already had matching heels SPH-IB and was delighted to have the white rhinestone clutch for her phone! A long 18 inch doll gown DRSD-TQ was Ellie’s favorite. She was drawn to the sparkly sequin trim and halter style neckline which is such a different look from her usual workout clothes and jeans! Because she loves to dance, she chose blue ribbon espadrilles SRE-LB so she could keep her shoes on and dance all night! Instead of an updo at the hair salon, Ellie went with blue hair extensions DNHC3 for a totally rocking look. Speaking about hairdo’s…Sophia was the last to leave the salon with her amazing updo. Spending 2 hours in the salon chair was so worth it! Her silver trimmed periwinkle formal dress, DRSDG-PW, has such a unique design that gave Sophia the feel of a strapless formal with straps to insure a perfectly fitting dress. Long white, pearl trimmed opera gloves added to the elegant profile she was going for. Because she loves to wear heels with everything, she chose SPH-BL, 18 inch doll heels that were a perfect match. So, the girls are all set for an evening of fun with friends…making memories that will last a lifetime.
