Kasey reviews … OG Sharp as a Fox outfit set

Now that I’ve done my introductory post to the AG girls, I wanted to do another couple posts showing off a some new outfits, and the girls’ new display.

Since I didn’t have an abundance of modern clothes for Charlie, I wanted to get her an outfit that would be like her “meet” outfit, and perusing the OG online section of Target I found the perfect outfit. I was able to snag it during a free shipping promotion so I didn’t have to buy the full $25 worth of stuff you normally would.

The set is called Sharp as a Fox and I thought it was absolutely adorable when I saw it and I immediately knew that Charlie would look perfect in it, and I was right.

Here’s what the box looks like:

As you can see, the set comes with a shirt with a fox + cap + mustache, a pink skirt, red shoes, two bracelets, and a jacket. Here’s a picture of Charlie wearing the full ensemble:

The lighting is off in this picture but the dress is skirt is pinker than it looks here, since it’s a bit washed out in this pic. Here’s a few more of Charlie (+Kit in some!):

While I was back home last week I got a new shelving set that was perfect for setting up a mini room for the girls using Kit’s bed. There’s also room enough I think for her desk and chair if that ever goes way on sale.

Everything in this set fits Charlie perfectly, although the bracelets take a little more work to get on than everything else. I actually like the plastic shoes in this set. Compared to some of Kit’s AG shoes, they slide on like a dream, and they the red looks good with the rest of the colors in the outfit.

This set also looks good without the jacket, and I actually can’t decide which way I prefer:

And here’s a close up of the shirt / skirt combo where the color is a little more accurate:

I think that this outfit has great mixing potential with every piece from the shoes and bracelets to the skirt, top, and even the jacket. I don’t have enough modern outfits to try out some different combos now, but when my collection gets built up a little bit more, I will have to try it out and post some more pics.

So far I only own two OG outfits, and while the material quality isn’t quite as high as AG, I’ve actually been very impressed. The cost is significantly cheaper than AG and the two outfits I’ve gotten Charlie (this one and the moose pajamas) have been some of my favorite modern outfits that I’ve seen including all the ones AG comes out with. I’ve also been impressed with the OG accessory sets I’ve seen online, though I don’t have plans to buy any soon. I will definitely be buying Charlie more OG clothes in the future and highly recommend this cute set.

Kasey introduces … the American Girls!

Hey everyone,

Despite the fact that American Girl dolls are one of my favorite things that I collect, I haven’t actually done any posts about mine yet, so I wanted to change that today since I just welcomed a new member to the AG doll crew (TrulyMe 58 for the curious)

Growing up I read all of the AG books I could find at the library. This was back when Kit was the new girl (and in fact I think she wasn’t even available when I first started reading these books) so it was just the originals (Felicity, Molly, Kirsten, Addy, Samantha, Kaya, and then Kit). I always loved the historical stories and whenever I could get my hands on a catalog, which was rarely and usually around Christmastime, I wanted an AG doll so badly but they were crazy expensive and I was a bit of a tomboy who had eschewed such girly things as dolls so I never asked.

Kit was, from the first time I saw her, my favorite AG girl. She had a bob cut which I envied because I had long hair that went down to my butt that my mom wouldn’t let me cut, she was a writer, and a bit of a tomboy.

Anyways, fast forward to earlier this spring when I randomly thought about AG for the first time in probably years, at least seriously. I did a quick Google search and visited their website and immediately went to look for the historical girls. That was when I realized that there were some I didn’t recognize, and that some of the ones I was most familiar with (Kirsten, Felicity, and Molly) weren’t even for sale anymore. But Kit was, and in her brand spanking new BeForever meet outfit I thought she was ridiculously adorable.

I think I visited the website dozens of time over a month or so before I decided that I needed to have her. I was a little self conscious at first because I hadn’t made my collecting interests very public and my mother tends to be very judgmental of my purchases, but I decided I needed to own Kit anyways, and it has just gotten crazier from there.

I received Kit during spring break when most of my roommates were gone and she was perfect. I was worried I wouldn’t like her as much as I thought and that I would regret my purchase but I definitely didn’t. I quickly ordered her a few more outfits and started rereading her series, which I hadn’t read since I was a kid.

I also realized that Kit looked adorable in just about anything. Seriously. Take a look:
