I ordered some stuff from American Girl, and they arrived today!
First up, I bought the Raspberry Glasses!
I got these because Hayley‘s Emily looks so cute in her glasses. They stay on the doll really well.
Here’s the cute case the glasses came with! It’s soft and fleecy 🙂 I rate this five stars! There’s nothing bad about it!
I got the Sparkly Hair Pick. It’s a transparent light purple color with silver sparkles in it. It worked really well on my Caroline’s messy hair. This is five stars also.
I bought the My American Girl True Spirit Accessories. I love this set! It looks amazing with the current My AG meet outfit (which Emily isn’t wearing :P).
This hat = awesomeness. I haven’t quite figured out how to put it on the doll properly yet, though.
The jacket isn’t full-length, but it is C-U-T-E!
All the buttons, which have little stars on them, really work! It’s a nice touch.
The American Girl tag is on left sleeve, and doesn’t really stand out from the white jacket.
The purple purse is so tiny and adorable! The pink butterfly on the flap goes along with the butterfly theme on the My AG meet outfit boots. It closes with a piece of velcro.
The True Spirit Accessories set also comes with three one dollar bills and a library card. The dollars are a nice size, but they don’t fit in the purse and are only printed on one side.
The library card is plastic and also a good size.
The card fits in the purse with a bit of pushing, but just barely. I rate this four stars, because the library card and money don’t fit in the purse.
Last but not least . . . the Striped Hoodie Outfit! I love this outfit soooo much. I would totally wear it if it were in my size! The shirt is a bit hard to get on, because you have to pull the hood over the dolls head.
^The shirt with the hood up^
I think that the hood is a bit too small. It fits on the head just fine, put if it covered more of her head, that would be better.
It has this odd slit in the back. I know it’s just so that the hood can move easier, but it looks a little weird.
I have nothing bad to say about the shoes. The slip on and off really easily and I just love the colors.
The design on the shirt is beautiful. I love how the bright colors contrast with the gray of the shirt.
The pocket works!
The pants go on easily. They don’t have pockets. (BTW, the orange is brighter in real life.)
It comes with two pink hairbands.
It comes with a “Proud” charm.
I found it funny that the quote on the charm’s package was from a girl named Emily, because Emily was modeling the outfit! I rate this four and a half stars, because of the difficulties with the hood.
