In Addy’s American Girl story, she does not know her birthday because she is born into slavery. Addy chooses her own birthday – April 9. Addy is 160 today!
When Brianna and I went to the American Girl Outlet last week, I was curious as to whether I would bump into the perfect gift for Addy.
This is Julie’s Summer Skirt Set, which is not retired, nor was it really discounted at the outlet store. I just knew this is the outfit Addy needed! Maybe it’s the 1970s kid in me, but I couldn’t pass up the knock-off Dr Scholl’s sandals! Mine were blue too.
And the detail on the blouse is wonderful – the stitching has a variety of colors of thread. I would have been all over that in the 1970s.
It comes with a braided band that Julie wears over her forehead. That reminds me too much of Greg Brady, so Addy is wearing it as a traditional headband.
I will say the skirt is a tad tight. No one else has had a chance to try it on, so I don’t know if Addy had too much cake or perhaps the skirt was returned. No matter, I am thrilled with the outfit. Happy birthday Addy . . . may American Girl grant you many more to come!
