Even though I did not buy Molly when we were at the American Girl store over the weekend, I did buy something from her collection – I bought Emily a her purple holiday dress. Now that Emily and the Queen are friends and all, I thought she could use something a little fancier.

I took Emily outside to do a little photography but before I could pose her for a second photo it started raining. Emily’s Holiday Dress is a pretty dark purple with light purple frills and even though it is supposed to be her “holiday dress” the simplicity and color of this dress make it wearable all year long. The outfit comes with the dress, a hair bow, beautiful pearl necklace (my favorite part of the outfit) and frilly white ankle socks.

The hair bow is the one part of this outfit I just don’t understand. Emily’s hair is not really long enough to put into a proper ponytail and this ribbon is attached to a thick ponytail holder. I think they would have been better to have given Emily another headband or a pearly hair barrette instead.

The frilly white socks are a cute touch and this really is a pretty dress that Emily can wear all year long. Now Emily would like to know when her friend Molly is going to be here! She is getting a little tired of waiting. πŸ˜‰
