Of all the dresses that American Girl has ever made, Cecile’s Special Dress has to be one of my favorites. I have debated getting it ever since it came out, but once I received Cecile, I knew I just couldn’t wait any longer – and good thing I acted when I did – Cecile’s Special Dress is no longer on the American Girl website!!

Cece got dressed this morning and went looking for a wreath to hang in the window. I took a few different photos and used some photo filters to created different looks. Help me decide which one Cecile should use as her Christmas card photo this year!

For some reason I never noticed the dark green ribbon in this dress before. It definitely adds a little unexpected touch of holiday color to this very elegant dress.

Don’t you  just love the backdrop? This one is from Carpatina and it is one of my favorites – especially for photographing the historical dolls. One side is the outside of a castle and the inside is a very fancy parlor – perfect for Caroline, Marie Grace, Cecile, Amelia, Rowena and even the girls of today as if they are attending a fancy event.
