Outfit Of The Week: 16

04292017-1-2

I just love the way this outfit went together! Hayden looks a little bit quirky but yet so put together and fun! My youngest son saw it and said it looks just like the youth pastors wife at our church so I would say it is very much keeping with what is in style at the moment.

The hat is part of Tenney Grant’s collection from American Girl. It is part of the Tenney’s Hat And Necklace Set for $18. Tenney Grant’s Hat

The chambray shirt and the brown shoes are also from Tenney Grant’s collections from American Girl. The set is called Tenney’s Picnic Outfit for $28. Tenney’s Shirt and Shoes

The skirt is from Our Generation. It is from the retro set called Rockin’ Rosie. I love that it looks very dressed up, but can be dressed down as well (this outfit is kind of a business casual to me) and it is very soft and stretchy so it would also be very comfortable. Pink Skirt

Collection: Backpacks

So I am always curious to see what people have in their collections so today I thought I would share with you my backpack collection.

This first back pack is a mini gray floral Jansport that I found at a Staples store for $8.

My next mini Jansport back pack is also from Staples and is a fun Aztec print.

My last Staples find is a mini Jansport back pack covered in a fun emoji print.

This cute Minnie Mouse print backpack is a key chain I found at Spencer’s.

This pink one was included in the Our Generation brand Back To School set.

This purple back pack is a retired back pack from American Girl. I ordered a lot off of eBay that included this back pack and an old math book and the yellow bunk bed set.

This brown and pink back pack was included in the Our Generation brand What A Trek set.

This next backpack is super cute. It kind of makes me think of a back pack purse due to it’s smaller size. It was included in the Our Generation brand mini set called Museum Day.

The last back pack of my collection is the hydration back pack from American Girl brand Lea’s Hiking Set.

So that is my back pack collection! Let me know if there is any more information you would like to know about any of these back packs.

Work In Progress Wednesday: Purple Dressers

A couple of weeks ago I showed you a couple of Hobby Lobby dressers I found. Well I was able to get them painted! I love the purple color I found for them!

04262017-1-2

They are far from perfect but they still turned out so cute!

04262017-2

I will definitely be buying more of these in the future! Not only are they adorable and affordable furniture options for the doll house, but they are great for storage as well! The drawers are huge!

04262017-3

And although this is just for me, I lined the drawers and I think they turned out amazing! I love the color and pattern combination and they are perfect for my girl room in the doll house!

04262017-4

Here is an updated view of the girl room!

It is slowly coming together! Check back for more updates!

Mini Find! Minnie Mouse Backpack

Today’s mini find was found at Spencer’s in the mall. I do not remember exactly how much it cost but it was under $10.

04252017-1

It is really a key chain or made to clip onto a backpack but as you can see the scale is perfect for 18 inch dolls.

04252017-2

I am a huge Disney fan (as you can tell by my blog name!) so of course all of my 18 inch friends are as well. The only thing that would have made it better is if it was the red, white and black Minnie Mouse. Pink is good too though!

04252017-3

It is so adorable and I feel so lucky that I was able to find it and add it to my collection. Now every time I visit a mall I pop into Spencer’s looking to see if they have any more mini backpacks in other prints, patterns, colors or characters.

04252017-4

Here is a view of the back where you can see I left the hardware attached but I don’t think it would be that difficult to remove. The straps are also very cute and realistic. Just a warning though, while it fits and looks very cute on one shoulder of an 18 inch doll, it will not go on both shoulders at once. The straps are just too short. It is still a very cute accessory anyway and most people I know carry their back packs on just one shoulder anyway.

Outfit Of The Week: 15

 

04222017-1-2

I like how this outfit is fun and casual but still put together. Lexi has a thing for fun and comfortable shoes, so of course she became my model for today’s outfit of the week!

04182017-2-3

The tee shirt is Our Generation brand and comes in the Nature Lover deluxe set. Black And White Striped Tee Shirt

The denim skirt is a minnieme18 original.

The shoes are also Our Generation brand. The come in one of the mini sets called Plaid All Over. I like that they have real shoe laces. They look a bit long in the picture but let me just say they were tricky enough to tie at this length! Plaid All Over Shoes

American Girl: Tenney’s Spotlight Outfit

This set is another part of Tenney Grant’s collection and is available through American Girl. It retails for $36. I have Aria modeling for me today and she looks amazing in this outfit. The set includes a white lace top, a shimmery pink skirt, a starry headband and cowboy boots.

05042017-1

So the white lace top is mostly why I bought this set and as of right now I am still undecided as to if I like it or not. Lace tends to be stiff and scratchy but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this lace is actually very soft and silky. I also really like the length of the sleeves. So that is what I like about the top. Now for what I don’t like. I am not a fan of the fact that it is almost a crop top. I would have liked this shirt to be about a half an inch longer at least which is the normal-ish length for American Girl brand shirts.   I did not realize how much of a boat neck this shirt has and that is not one of my favorite looks either. It doesn’t look awful and I am probably being too picky. It is actually pretty cute so maybe I can overlook what I perceive to be flaws.

05042017-2

The tutu style skirt is really cute and sparkly. It is made very similar to Grace’s Sight Seeing Skirt from American Girl. It has an elastic waistband and slides on very easily.

05042017-3-2

The headband is ok. It will look cute with this outfit but I don’t really see me pairing it with other outfits though. I will say I was so excited that it DID NOT have a huge Ego tag sticking off of it! Yay! American Girl might actually be listening to us!

05042017-4

The American Girl website lists the boots as being brown. While they to have some light brown on them, I would describe the more as glittery boots or brown and glittery boots. It is mostly silver glitter but has some rainbow-colored glitter mixed in. I didn’t notice the glitter rubbing off on my hand as I was dressing Aria which was nice. They have velcro up the back making them easy to slip on.

05042017-5

I love this amazing detail! They even made the rubber sole of the boots cute. I love that they added the detail of the flowers carved into the rubber.

05042017-6

I would definitely recommend this set and I believe the pieces will mix and match well in my doll wardrobe.

Mini Find! Minnie Purse!

I am always on the look out for mini finds for my collection. Being on vacation is no exception to the rule. Good thing too! On my last trip to Walt Disney World I was coming off of Space Mountain and they have you walk through the gift shop as you exit. I happened to glance around and I saw this adorable purse key chain! I can’t remember the exact price but it was around $20. That is kind of pricey in my opinion but I counted it as a souvenir so I didn’t feel quite so bad then.

04182017-1

The scale is perfect and it has a balance of whimsy and glam that my doll wardrobe needed.

04182017-2-2

I later saw these same key chains in other gift shops as well. Space Mountain just happened to be where I saw it first and where I purchased it. So if you are headed to a Disney Park sometime soon and would like it, be on the lookout! You never know! Now if I could just find myself some doll size Mickey ears.
