Over the weekend I took Sonali outside for a photoshoot featuring the Star Doll Dress Up outfit from PenPalGirls.

I have decided that the fall afternoon sunshine can be very tricky to work with. I managed to find some good spots in the garden to pose Sonali. I like this photo because you can see the sunlight peeking through the branches and leaves. Her dress is a zebra print covered in sequins so it picked up the sunbeams nicely, too.

Sonali is one of the prettiest dolls American Girl has made in my opinion – she was part of GOTY Chrissa’s collection. This photo shows off her beautifully subtle highlights in her hair.

This dress fits all the 18″ dolls nicely and works for many different occasions.

It was windy on Sunday and as much as I tried to keep Sonali’s hair neat and tidy, the wind had another idea!

The Star Doll Dress is a basic cut made from zebra print fabric and sequins. It velcros up the back. You can purchase it for $25 at PenPalGirls or $18.99 at Amazon.
