UPDATED WITH WINNER!! Congratulations Emma W. I will be sending you an email shortly.

We always have fun visiting American Girl stores – or any doll stores for that matter! And since I know many of you don’t have one near you or rarely get a chance to visit one, I did a little shopping for one lucky reader while we were at the Washington DC store yesterday.

American Girl store exclusives

I am giving away the black doll t-shirt – it has cap sleeves, a gathered empire waist and looks adorable on! There is also the mini doll carrier which is perfect for the 18″ dolls to use to carry around their 6″ mini dolls, a pet or just some snacks they may need on their adventures.

Chrissa and Mini Rebecca

Chrissa was kind enough to be my model today. Note – Chrissa, her white jeans, shoes and mini Rebecca are not part of the giveaway.


Here is a good look at the top on Chrissa. And please ignore that crazy hair that is right in the middle of her forehead. I could not get it to behave and the scissors were not in arm’s reach.
