'Ello everyone! Top of the evening to ya.;P
Here is the review I mentioned earlier!:)
Emerson is being my model for the review and I just happen to think the dress looks amazing on her! I think her coloring is just awesome for the dress and it's so colorful!:D
Let's start this review shall we?
The dress consists of a very bold, colorful, tribal print dress with yellow braided rope detailing. The fabric is somewhat stretchy.:)
The dress is a mix of a ton of colors, magenta, blue, yellow, green, and so many more! I think the pattern might be a little too crazy for some people's taste, but I happen to love it!:D
The trim of the shirt of the dress is the same yellow color as the braids.:)
As I said, there is some braided rope details, such as the straps are braids, which I think is a very cute touch.:)
As well as the straps, the belt is a double braid. It is not sewn in at the front and you can move it to have a part in the middle, or no part in the middle. Unfortunately, it does not wrap around to the back and is only on the front.
The accessories that come with the outfit and doll are too cute! Her compass necklace is so adorable and the arrow actually spins.:) The back of the compass is a light green with a reddish, hot pink flower in the middle that is circled with little lines and N, W, E, and S. The covering over the compass is clear plastic and the casing is a goldish brown plastic of some kind. The necklace is strung on a black cord. More on how the cord is later.:)
The messenger bag is ADORABLE. It's one of my favorite AG things! It seems to be made out of a light brown canvas and has pink and yellow-green tribal print strips that velcro the bag shut. You can open it and it's so cute! It also has a hot pink flower in between the closings that is circled by turquoise dots and a lime green brushstroke decal. The bag is easy enough to get over your doll's head and looks adorable for any outfit!
The dress is super cute and looks great on pretty much any doll! It will make an awesome summer dress for beach days. I could also see it being a swim suit cover!:)
Emerson loves it!:)
Now onto the shoes!
I have to say, although they are super cute, they are a PAIN to get on. With the hot pink and yellow rope loops that you have to get your doll's feet through, it's like some sort of maze!;D But once they are on, they look super cute! I think these shoes might look great with the Easy Breezy outfit from American Girl, I would have to try it out!:)
The style of the sandal, with the two pieces of shoe tied together with a rope, is a little odd for some people and may not be their style, but I think it's very cute. The actual sandal is a lighter, but bright blue with tiny green and yellow checkerboards in a checker pattern. Huh! I never realized that they were checkerboards until now, I thought they were just yellow X's.;)
Now back to the bag and the necklace. I realized I never showed you the strap of the bag. All the way down are these yellow V's . I think it was an unneeded detail, but it doesn't look bad.:)
Now, concerning the way to adjust the necklace....This might be harder than putting the shoes on.XD You have to pull the two knots to get it to tighten or loosen. The knots are super hard to pull. I wish they had done something different. I don't know what, but not this.XD
But other than some of the outfits problems such as the shoes and the necklace, I love this outfit!:) I rate it a 4.5 out of 5 stars!:D
I hope you liked the review!:)
