Review Tuesday

Hello! Today's review is on Rebecca's Hanukkah Dress, I was able to snag this outfit during Cyber Monday for $16, the regular retail price is $32. I was so excited that I was able to get it! I was not looking forward to trying to find it on Ebay for a reasonable price but I got it on sale straight from AG.  

Dress- The details of this dress are amazing from the scalloped hem to the sash at the waist the dress is very well put together, the fabric is a very nice material that has a great quality, I love the purple stripes that add interest.  The dress closes in back with Velcro. What is great is the only AG tag is on the inside :) 

Tights- The tights aren't as thick as the tights that have come from more recent outfits for Rebecca, I love the lace detailing at the top, the tights are an off white.  They are easy to put on the doll, too.

Shoes- I love these shoes! The bows are adorable, the shoes do not have any AG tag inside or imprinted on the bottom. Yay!! Between the bow and the side of the shoe on each shoe is a piece of elastic, making it easier to get the shoes on, the shoes are really easy, even with tights on.  

Ribbon- At first the ribbon may seem too long but the way AG styled it is supposed to tie into a bow, almost like a headband. The pattern is very pretty, I'm not sure I styled it the best, I'll have to fiddle with it.  Nice addition to the outfit and colors go very well together. 

Overall the outfit is really cute, the quality is great and the plus is their are no annoying tags! I love the detail put into this outfit and it is a very important piece for Rebecca's collection.  What do you think? Is Rebecca's new holiday dress better or are they equal? 
Thanks for looking,

AGPC Challenge: Behind the Scenes

I thought it would be fun to post extra pictures from the challenge and also give a more in depth look at the swing. Here are some of my favorites- 

It was so hard trying to balance her, I didn't think about it until I put the swing up, I eventually lowered it closer to the ground so I could put her feet on the ground to keep her from falling.  The sun was really bright although most of the time clouds covered it, which created a great lighting of course it would only cover it for a few minutes and then the pictures when the sun was shining looked like a picture with a flash.. I think I finally have my camera somewhat figured out, usually I just fiddle with it until the pictures turn out okay but lately I have tried adjusting different settings and the difference is great! The swing was made out of a piece leftover from the dollhouse that was drilled so that their was enough space for the rope to be tied, the rope was from around the house I had found, not sure where it came from, and then I was able to take down the existing swing on the swing set and tie this one up temporarily. I really like how it looks in black and white, which actually is an improvement as the unedited one wasn't as interesting with  dead grass and leaves in the background ;)
