Hi everyone! It’s Jen and Brianna coming to you from the local coffeeshop with our opinions on some of the new arrivals.
B: I like these items, because I think that they relate to a very important time for Kaya’s Tribe and the English that are exploring and trading with tribes like Kaya’s. The beading and stitching on Kaya’s dress is amazing, and the items in her Trading Accessories are very 1764ish.
J: I don’t know a lot about Kaya, but I am thrilled whenever a historical character gets new items.
Our second item is the new Kaya outfit for girls….
B: Rebecca’s Faux Fur Coat is amazing! I love the fur around the wrists and neck and the color on the coat is beautiful, though frankly I’m not sure if they could make the blue – purple color so vivid back in her time.
J: I’m not sure how this coat looks if you don’t have the same dress underneath.
J: Kit’s new Christmas items – I’m pretty excited! I don’t have a Christmas dress for Kit yet. We own Maryellen, Addy, and Julie’s holiday outfits. I’m still weighing whether I would prefer the new or old Christmas dress for Kit. I hope to see this outfit in Chicago soon and I can definitely see asking Santa for it!
B: Kit’s Christmas Dress is really nice, but my favorite thing is her stocking! It’s so adorable with the sock monkey inside of it!
J: My pie and coffee are almost gone and we are just getting started!!
B: Maryellen’s new Rollerskating Outfit is really cute, but I don’t know how easy it would be to rollerskate in a dress, like that..
J: I think it is a great dress for Maryellen, and I would maybe think of it as a “party dress.” Are those Caroline’s shoes recycled? Hmmmm… Addy would look phenomenal in this!
B: I LOVE THIS OUTFIT! I think it is so pretty, especially on Melody. Some of the fabrics remind me of Rebecca’s Beforever meet outfit…
J: Melody looks very pretty but I would not buy this outfit. I dislike turtlenecks, tight sweaters, and scratchy wool skirts. I know my mother is laughing when she reads this because this was the source of much drama back in the 1970s when I was a kid. Don’t even get me started on those fuzzy tights! I don’t understand what these shoes are. Maybe they are better in person?
B: I also love this outfit! Gabriela looks awesome in it. The silver shoes and turquoise dress are stunning together.
J: I’m glad Gabriela’s collection continues to grow. Lovely color. Reminds me a bit of a professional ice skating outfit.
B: I think this outfit is cute, but I can’t imagine a 13 year old wearing it.
J: I disagree! Seattle! Brianna and I are arguing about this right now! I love this outfit and it my #1 pick from this release. It could be coming home soon. I am disappointed, though, that they gave Z’s dog the cute umbrella. Hello? Z needs the umbrella not her dog. Tricky business there AG.
B: Z’s Media Set and Green Scene are amazing! It has everything you could need for making a doll movie! At my middle school, we have a G – I – G – A – N – T – I – C green screen that we use to make our Middle School News Show.
J: I can’t wait to see the doll community using this as a photo backdrop.
B: I love this outfit! It’s very Western, and the boots remind me a lot of Saige’s Meet Outfit boots. The belt around the tunic is very fashionable too!
J: I like this and think it will sell well. I’m still trying to determine whether the white fabric is sheer? After Gabriela’s see through performance skirt I’m keeping watch.
B: I don’t like the capelet or the skirt but I think the shirt and golden flats are so cute! It’s definitely not AG’s best outfit, though.
J: Here we thought the t-shirt would be for Luciana – the possible 2018 Girl of the Year. AG surprised us on that leak. The capelet. That houndstooth pattern is huge in doll-scale. I’m Ok with the rest of the outfit, but the overall look is just too strange for me. Brianna says I should let out my “true feelings” on this outfit. There’s one doozy in every release, and this one is it!
B: My top pick is two outfits actually … Gabriela’s Party Dress and the Western Chambray outfit. Melody’s Birthday Dress is the runner – up.
J: Z’s rainy day outfit and Kit’s Christmas dress. Santa? Do you follow this blog?
We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this AG release. We will talk more about Nanea in a future post.
