I wanted to do a quick post to show you some cute 18" doll outfits that my mom found for my girls. She found these at Big Lots for their off-brand 18" doll line. The outfits were only about $8 a piece, but were really cute for what they were, especially considering the price. Jen at "Dolls and Nachos" did a post on these sometime in the last month, so I had heard about them before. It was really fun to see the girls get them for Christmas.
Okay, enough babbling...here are the pics! :)
Hailey, Maggie and Ella modeling my daughters' doll outfits (and yes, I did ask their permission before I played with their Christmas presents). :)
First up is Hailey, modeling a mock turtleneck in blues, greens and pinks, with slightly faded denim blue jeans (which include floral embroidery on one pant let), brown suede ankle boots, and a blue, fur-lined vest. The shoes and vest probably won't last very long because of quality...it's probably good that this outfit went to my most careful daughter. :)
Finally, we have Ella modeling my favorite outfit of the three. I especially love the cute corduroy jacket! The striped mock turtleneck is really nice too. The stripes are kind of a peachish-orange, tan and off-white. This outfit also includes a denim skirt and suede boots trimmed in fur. When I saw this on Ella, I thought, "I bet that would look really cute on Emma,"...
...so of course I had to try it! :) I absolutely fell in love with this outfit on her. She looks adorable! Then, I just had to take more pics because she is so stinkin' photogenic. :)
Here's a close-up of the cute jacket...and Emma! :)
I love these boots, even though the quality is definitely not up to American Girl standards. But still, aren't they fun?
Details of the skirt. You can see from this pic that the stitching is not all it's cracked up to be, but hey, for $8, I'll take it. It beats me having to attempt to sew! :)
Here's Emma without the jacket, so you can see her cute stripes.
Hmmm, I may just have to go by Big Lots and see if there are any more of these left. This is definitely a perfect Emma outfit. :) Either that, or I'll just have to sweet-talk my youngest a lot so I can borrow the outfit for photo shoots! :)
UPDATE (12/29/10): These doll clothes are from the "Friendship Kids" line, done by a company called Kingsgate. I went to Big Lots today to see if I could find the outfit for Emma and they didn't have it. :( They did still have the outfit Hailey modeled, with the blue vest, so I went ahead and bought it. The cashier said that it's possible they could get more of them in. Their trucks come on Monday, so I might try again next week. I think I'll keep the outfit I got in the package until then, just in case. :)
