Seeing Green / Style

Hello!

Happy St. Patricks day! The spring weather made a stop up in New England today, and Bella and I took advantage of the warmer temperatures by spending the afternoon outside. In honor of today’s festivities, we’ve put together a collection of our favorite green Etsy listings for your 18-inch doll. Enjoy!

Snug as a Bug / Style

Hello!

Warm, cozy, and comfortable are staple qualities in an autumnal wardrobe, but that shouldn’t discount the importance of style too! With sweater weather upon us, Lulu and I wanted to focus a new style post {yes, also, hi, we’ve been awful at updating lately} on our favorite sweaters of the season. From cute pullover sweatshirts to trendy knitted cardigans, there’s surely a sweater below for every member of your doll family. What Etsy items have caught your eye this month?

Shorts for Summer / Style

Hi!

Lulu is our go-to style expert, but we here at Doll Mag are nothing if not a flexible bunch, so I’m giving my first go at a style post. Our last fashion round-up was back in March {I know, time flies!}, so we wanted to share the shorts we have been eyeing on Etsy before summer vacation hit. With the temperatures rising by the day, we have been stocking up on shorts for our dolls’ – and our own – wardrobes. What’s on your Etsy wishlist as of late?

Seven Days of Style / May 2015

Hello!

With the warmer temperatures and the gorgeous sun that appear day after day, we’re sure we are not the only ones pulling out our summer wardrobes! The switch in seasons calls for another round of Seven Days of Style, a feature where we challenge ourselves to create seven outfits from ten pieces of clothing. Our model, Zoey, was eager to show off the stylish ensembles below, but if you need even more fashion inspiration, you can browse the archives HERE :)

Seven Days of Style May 2015Here are the ten items we used in this month’s edition. Per usual, clicking on the link will bring you to the AG site {if it is still available for sale} or the American Girl Wiki {if the piece is retired}.

SundaySunday: Layered Blouse, Pastel Capris, Vintage Oxfords

Zoey knows the fun in switching up her style; for this quiet Sunday, she channeled a vintage vibe by pairing her layered blouse with lightweight capris and comfortable oxfords. The cool color palette coordinates the pieces of the outfit, ensuring her day at home is a day well spent.

MondayMonday: Floral Tee, Denim Jeans, Pink Sneakers

There’s no need to stress about the week ahead with an adorable outfit already picked out. Your doll will be ready to run from an after school activity to her best friend’s house with relaxed, but no less cute, pieces, like a printed tee and colorful Converse sneakers. A high pony matches the playful vibe of the outfit!

TuesdayTuesday: Peplum Top, Cropped Cardigan, Denim Jeans, Vintage Oxfords

Is your doll rocking a trendy top? Keep the rest of her outfit classic, not clashing, by adding closet staples; the cardigan, boyfriend jeans, and oxfords here pair nicely with Zoey’s embroidered peplum top. The slight floral detail brings a sense of spring {even if she is stuck in a classroom all day}!

WednesdayWednesday: Striped Shirt, Sundress, Vintage Oxfords

If the Wednesday blues hit, a dressier ensemble is sure to perk up your doll’s morning. If the weather calls for another layer, use our favorite “wardrobe hack” and turn her striped shirt into a cute cardigan. Add a neutral pair of shoes, put her hair up into a messy bun, and she’s ready for the world – or the last week of school :)

ThursdayThursday: Floral Tee, Pastel Capris, Pink Sneakers

Pastel capris can look frumpy if not styled correctly, but Zoey experiences no trouble with this cute outfit. Tucking in her tee instantly lengthens your doll’s leg, and comfy pink trainers tie the colors of the outfit together. She looks ready for an afternoon playing outside!

FridayFriday: Striped Shirt, Denim Jeans, Vintage Oxfords

Finish the school week on a stylish note by pairing three classic items. Denim jeans are a girl’s best friend; they can be rolled up into cropped pants or act as casual trousers, as in this nautical-inspired ensemble. One can never go wrong with a striped shirt, especially when it’s contrasted with a bright red hair bow! Last touch? Her beloved oxfords.

SaturdaySaturday: Floral Tee, Sundress, Vintage Oxfords

Finally, it may be the weekend, but that shouldn’t stop your doll from pulling out her skirts and dresses. Whether she is shopping with her family or hanging with friends, an adorable t-shirt and a dress disguised as a skirt are the perfect pieces for her weekend.

Have a lovely night!

Ever After High (Part 2) / Style

Hi!

It’s been a while since our last style post, hasn’t it? While I was doing a bit of Etsy Pinning earlier this weekend, I noticed that there were lots of cute Ever After High and Monster High clothing options available (many more than there was when I wrote up the original EAH and MH style post). I was very excited to find so many cute clothes for my smaller dolls, and I thought that you would be too! And so, here are some of my favorite Ever After High Etsy listings at the moment…

Valentine’s Day Style

Hi!

Seven Days of Style / February 2015

Hi!

We have so much fun shooting and writing the Seven Days of Style, and we are doing our best to post them on a monthly basis – or at least every holiday :) With Valentine’s Day coming up in a few short weeks, this month’s collection of outfits is made up of plenty of red and pink pieces. Our freckled cutie, Ellie, models the seven ensembles below! If you want more outfit inspiration, you can see the last Seven Days of Style HERE.

The two of us apologize for the lack of an item photo, but as always, here are the links to each piece used; clicking on them will bring you to the AG website or the AG Wiki page for reference.

February 2015 Seven Days of StyleSunday: Lacy Top, Sparkly Shorts, Pink Flats

An outing with friends is the perfect time to dress up! While these three trendy pieces match, the coordination isn’t over-the-top thanks to the subtle details on top and bottom. With this chic pairing, a voluminous ponytail is all she needs before heading out the door.

February 2015 Seven Days of StyleMonday: Coconut Tee, Reversible Skirt, Pink Flats

A flouncy skirt and an adorable tee instantly rid of Monday morning blues! Pink is the color that ties everything together here, but the less girly need not worry: any color can be used to coordinate a tee and skirt combo. Finally, twisting the hair back before securing into pigtails frames her face – it works with braids too!

February 2015 Seven Days of StyleTuesday: Love Sweater, Heart Patch Jeans, Pink Flats

Math test, a student council meeting, and band practice have nothing on this sharp ensemble! A cherry-red sweater and comfy boyfriend jeans are comfortable choices, no matter how busy her schedule. A quick pin in her hair is a necessary skill to learn for busy mornings.

February 2015 Seven Days of StyleWednesday: Geometric Sweater, Lacy Top, Heart Patch Jeans, Pink Flats

The school week is halfway-done, so celebrate with a stylish – and comfy – outfit! Though the lacy white top is sophisticated, a messy braided crown, a big sweater, and boyfriend jeans keep her outfit casual. New to the braided crown trend? Simply braid your doll’s hair on both sides and pin in the back. Cute and easy!

February 2015 Seven Days of StyleThursday: Lacy Top, Reversible Skirt, Pink Flats

A reversible skirt is an invaluable piece in your doll’s wardrobe. A quick flip provides a new choice in styling; here, the light pink skirt pairs perfectly with the lace shirt and ballet flats. This darling ensemble only needs a mini fishtail braid, with a few choice fly-aways, to finish the look.

February 2015 Seven Days of StyleFriday: Coconut Tee, Sparkly Shorts, Blue High Top Sneakers

It can be daunting to wear a new trend, like sparkly shorts, to school, but there’s no day like Friday to try one out! Fortunately, a fun graphic tee and colorful high tops help to ease any worries, and a simple hairstyle {we have Ellie in a half-up style here} lets the chic pair of shorts shine.

February 2015 Seven Days of StyleSaturday: Light Pink Dress, Pink Flats

Finally, Valentine’s Day calls for a stylish dress, like this fashionable pink number! The only accessories needed are a pair of pink flats; the chic cut, ruffled layers, and bow belt ensure she’ll look cute no matter how she celebrates.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Vintage Holiday Dresses / Holiday Headquarters 2014

Hi!

There’s something extra fun about dressing up in a twirly dress, especially for the holiday season! I love seeing all the different styles that are for sale in different stores, and it’s no different when I’m shopping for doll clothes. While I was browsing Etsy a couple weeks ago, I noticed lots of holiday dresses and outfits popping up in some of my favorite shops. They were all so pretty, but I was drawn towards the vintage and historical ones the most; today, I wanted to share my four favorites!

Seven Days of Style / Holiday Headquarters Edition!

Hi!

Back by popular demand, it’s the Seven Days of Style: Holiday Headquarters edition! With the number of events that come with the holidays, December presents many opportunities for your doll to play around with her wardrobe. With that in mind, we’ve created seven outfits out of just ten pieces for any event that many come your doll’s way in the next few weeks. Are your dolls dressed for the holidays yet? {We spent Thanksgiving weekend dressing ours :)}

Seven Days of Style Holiday ItemsHere are the items you’ll need for this winter round {links will bring you to the AG store or AG wiki for reference}. As always, your doll doesn’t need the items shown to get the same effect. Dig through your own collection to find similar items, and have fun playing with different combinations!

Seven Days of Style: Holiday PartyHoliday Party: Knit Sweater, Flouncy Skirt, Festive Flats

Your doll’s holiday ensemble need not be a source of worry with party-ready pieces on hand. With a stunning hairstyle {think big curls, as Nicki has here, or an intricate bun}, a cozy winter sweater and multicolored skirt are perfect for an event with family and friends. Comfortable shoes, such as ballet flats, are a must if she plans to mingle all night long!

ays of Style: Window ShoppingWindow Shopping: Winter Sweater, Tutu Skirt, Cozy Boots

If your doll wants to go shopping downtown with friends, she’ll need to look cute and stay warm. Tutu skirts are a trendy piece that update any outfit, and tights can be added for the coldest of days. Pair it with her favorite winter sweater and beloved boots, and she will be ready to shop the day away.

ays of Style: Nutcracker BalletNutcracker Ballet: Long Sleeve Tee, Tutu Skirt, Festive Flats

The local production of The Nutcracker calls for something fancy. Think of unexpected pairings without losing the classy touch; Nicki pairs a casual tee with a fluffy skirt, but keeps it simple with her choice in shoes and hair. Have a color consistent throughout the outfit – it ensures your doll looks sophisticated, instead of sloppy!

ays of Style: Caroling NightCaroling Night: Puffy Coat, Leggings, Cozy Boots

She’ll make any homeowner smile when your doll is bundled up in style. Winter essentials, such as thick leggings and a long coat, remain stylish with chic cuts and unique touches {we love the fur cuffs and collar on Nicki’s jacket}. Pull her hair back in an easy ponytail before sending her out to sing.

ays of Style: Day on the SlopesSnow Day: Knit Sweater, Leggings, Cozy Boots

If your doll wakes up to no school, plan for a fun day in the snow. With the addition of cozy boots, a knit sweater and long leggings bring “ski style” back home. All she needs now?! A cup of hot cocoa to stay warm!

ays of Style: Wrapping PresentsGift-Wrapping Afternoon: Long Sleeve Tee, Rockin’ Dress, Festive Flats

With the help of furry friends and a cute outfit, that pile of presents will be wrapped in no time! Just as she can be creative with her gift-wrapping methods, be inventive with the pieces in your doll’s closet. Here, a dress is disguised as a skirt underneath a long-sleeve tee with the same color palette.

ays of Style: New Year's Eve PartyNew Year’s Eve Celebration: Rockin’ Dress, Puffy Coat, Festive Flats

After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we’re sure your doll is ready to count down to 2015 on New Year’s Eve. From arriving in her fashionable coat to dancing in her sequined dress, she’ll be the most stylish one of the night. Don’t forget her noisemaker!

Have a terrific rest of your day!
