Throwback Thursday is BACK!! Today we are looking at retired American Girl Holiday Outfits – and some of them are just so gorgeous!

From Laura – Here is Sophie (#25) in the retired Ruby & Ribbon dress from 2010. The dress also included a silvery white sweater (not shown), stockings, flats, and a headband (not shown). I think that this sweater dress mixes and matches well with pieces from other outfits.

From Cordelia – Katherine and Rose are all decked out in their Christmas dresses. Katherine’s is from the Samantha Collection (retired). Although Rose’s dress in not yet retired (Molly Collection), she is wearing the retired St. Lucia wreath from the Kirsten Collection.

From Heather – Jacky is wearing the Midnight Blue Holiday outfit from 2000! It comes with a purse and gift box, inside the purse is a little pocket mirror! Lindsey is wearing the Garnet Holiday Outfit from 2001.

Also from Heather –  Lily (Gotz Little Sister) is wearing the Starry Night Outfit from 2002, Suzuki is wearing the Chinese outfit from 1996 and Carlie is wearing the Scarlet and Snow outfit from 2008.

From Pine Valley Girls Club – Marie-Grace is wearing Samantha’s retired holiday dress and McKenna is wearing the 2012 Purple holiday dress with the bolero that came in the accessory set. We got Samantha’s dress at a second hand doll store and McKenna’s when it was on sale over the summer!

From Kristen L.: K2 is wearing the Frosty Party Outfit from 2011. It includes the sweater, the skirt, shoes, and headband.


From Madelon – The Frosty Party Outfit from 2011 and the Recital Outfit from 2010.

Also from Madelon – Chrissa in the Rosey Red Outfit from 2012, McKenna in the Soft as Snow Outfit (still available) and the Frosty Party Outfit from 2011. They look like they are in a band!

From Madelon – Saige in the Merry and Bright Outfit from 2011.
