Samantha’s Holiday Dress, AGPLA T-Shirt | American Girl
Thanks to a deals-savvy friend and my sister, my husband and I were able to get our first DSLR camera (an older model Nikon D7000) during the Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday madness! I am so in love with it and the amazing pictures it’s able to produce in our poorly lit place!
I’m still very much a noob at using it, though… I used to use my parents’ Canon A-1 when I was younger…

…but I feel like I’ve forgotten a lot when it comes to shooting manually. But, practice makes perfect, and what better way to practice than taking pictures of easy-to-work-with models!
MG is ready for Christmas!
I really love Samantha’s holiday dress on Marie-Grace. My MG has some particularly broad shoulders, and there are some outfits that highlight them a little too much for my taste (e.g. Samantha’s middy dress). This dress looks like a dream on her!
I’m really happy I decided to get this set. Someday it’d be nice to have Christmas dresses for all my dolls (after all, they usually become part of the holiday decor), but this one’s a good start. None of the others have really stood out to me as much as this one.
American Girl Place LA Shirt
I’m also happy I got this AGPLA shirt. I didn’t think it was worth the original price of $8.00, but $3.00 (and later only $1.00!) is a different story! AGPLA is the only American Girl store I’ve been to so far, but it was quite a trek getting there. The Grove is nice, but driving in LA – and that area of LA in particular – is not fun. So for me, this shirt is a bit of a “I survived the drive to AGPLA” shirt haha.
I was also able to snag a couple of things during the American Girl Cyber Monday sale, but nothing too crazy. I’m waiting to see what Girl of the Year 2015 and her collection will bring!
And in the meantime, I’m still waiting for the new wig for #53. I hope it arrives soon!
