Ready for more photos of Saige close up? I took these of her in her meet outfit and will do photos of her other outfits over the weekend.

American Girl of the Year Saige Meet Outfit

Saige comes dressed in her blue meet dress with boots, silver earrings and a ring. The ring is part of her meet outfit and is attached inside the box – don’t accidentally throw it away.

Her hair comes in a twisted side ponytail and once you take it out, it is not the easiest style to put back in. I did a quick version of it this morning, but it is not quite right. Saige has bluish green eyes (more blue than green) and freckles. She is a cross between Nicki and Felicity, in my opinion.

This is a better close up of her ring which slides onto to her index finger on either hand. It is plastic and I recommend being careful with it and leaving it at home if you are taking Saige out on any adventures.

Saige’s beaded turquoise necklace with a silver charm in the center is part of her accessory set.

Also included in her accessories is this cute bracelet made of four strands of reddish orange beads. I do like the bracelet a lot, but it is a little tricky to get on.

A better look at the clasp mechanism for her bracelet. I am glad it is not elastic, but again, be careful with this one.

I just love her boots and wouldn’t mind a pair in my size. The strappy details just give them a polished look as far as I am concerned.

Saige has a cute red purse in her accessories set. The strap is long and matches the trim of the purse. The flap stays closed with velcro and the metal buckle is a nice touch. Here is a tip though! The purse itself is so light that it doesn’t hang right on her empty. I put 4 quarters in her purse and now it hangs just right.

I like the purse better (and you have a lesser chance of losing it) if you put it on her as a cross-body purse. Put it over her head first then carefully put one arm through.

The earrings in her accessories are great for mixing and matching with all of her outfits. The tiny turquoise posts can be worn alone or as jackets for the dangly feathers or sparkly gold earrings.

The turquoise earrings by themselves. I love these!

With the feathers added – these look super cute with her sweater outfit.

And for a dressier look – like with her Sparkly Dress, the gold dangle earrings.

The photo I took close up of her meet earrings ended up blurry so I will take it again and include it when I do a detailed post on one of her other outfits. 

About her hair – McKenna had the most fabulous doll hair yet – it was easy to maintain, always fell right back into place and you could do so much with it. Saige on the other hand has curls and curls require TLC. Don’t just go brushing it like crazy. Use the brush you can buy at AG, spritz it lightly with water, and reform her curls section at a time. She is very pretty and with a little extra patience, you can keep her looking beautiful for years to come.

So which outfit do you want a closer look at next – her sweater outfit or her sparkly dress?
