Beforever Rant

Hey!! I know you guys probably weren't expecting to hear from me for a while, but I had to post...my AG catalog just came in the mail.
What is up with Beforever???!!!
I mean seriously, they made the historicals all baby faced with bright cheery colors, and they're completely disrespecting their stories. SAMANTHA DOES NOT WEAR PINK!!!
But the funny thing is, the My American Girls look older. Like I'm talking 13 here. They look like they have perfectly styled hair, are wearing makeup and have designer super trendy clothes. Isabelle (I count her in withs the MAGs because she's from this time) even has a makeup set.
The historicals look like 8 year olds. It's disgusting. Like sure, they've got some cute pieces. I love Sam's holiday set, but the meet outfits look like something a 7yr old would wear. They don't look historically accurate, and they aren't following the books at all.
The historicals were always my favorite part, but now...the MAGs have seriously over-run them. The MAGs look more like me. They still have a bit of a baby face, but overall with the trendy clothes, perfect hair, etc. they come off looking 12-13ish.
Why are you doing this to us AG? What happened to "letting your inner star shine"? I gotta admit, I always hated that slogan but it had a point Don't be like everyone else. Now they've got these uber trendy perfect dolls that channel Barbie, and these baby-faced color-dipped dolls that channel Baby Alive. The new historicals look almost like Bitty Twins to me. I'm so disappointed AG.
And of course, AG still has their insane prices. Some things never change *sigh*
There had better be a good GOTY to make up for this....Beforever was NOT a good idea.

It's probably going to kind of turn into my main blog...I have more to say about fashion then dolls. I'm sorry guys...I know you liked my posts, but I'll still post now and then, just not as much. If you want to hear about me and my life then please go to The Fashion Cheetah , and my dolls will always be special to me. They'll always have a place in my heart. I just like fashion a bit more now. Well, please check The Fashion Cheetah out...see you there!



I'M BACK!!!!!

Hey!!! So sorry I haven't posted since...um...June...but I'm back now, with some exciting news. I've decided that I've kind of outgrown the screen name "Dollygirl" and the blog name "Dollygirl's Treasures". So I talked to my parents and they agreed to let me share my real name on here! :D So, meet me...............LYDIA! Yeah, my name is Lydia, I'm a 5'6 brunette with blue-green-gray-brown eyes and a love of dolls...nice to meet you! Sooooo of course this means I'm changing my blog name..I've got a couple vague ideas but I'd love to hear some suggestions from you! So please comment down below with some blog name ideas! TTYL! :)



AG Trip (Part One)!!!

Hello!!! As most of you probably know I went to the new American Girl Store-In-Store boutique at Yorkdale Mall (Toronto, Canada)! And I took photos! :)Sorry I took so long to post this. So this post will be photos of the store, and Part Two will have photos of the things I got! So, on to the photos! :D Oh, and by the way, I'm super sorry about the quality of most of the pictures! The lighting there was pink, so that made very terrible pics! And some of these are blurry, because I was so excited my hands were shaking xD

My dolls in the car!

The parking lot at Yorkdale Mall!


That's me! xD

And me again, with the My American Girls!!!

(Sorry this is so blurry) The overview of the center and right side of the store.

The awesome gymnastics set! I am thinking I might save up for it! :)

I love that bike! I wanted to just scoop it up and run away with it xD

The baseball set is cute.

I think the horses look a little fake, but they are still pretty cute. Why is that doll wearing shorts with leggings? Ugh!

I almost had a cute attack here, the breakfast set was so realistic! :)

Isabelle's studio was AMAZING. I was blown away by the awesomeness and quality!

They had a really nice Izzy setup.

She was adorable! I didn't end up getting her though, I found a doll I liked better :)

The book display.

The store was small, but it was definitely worth going to!

The earrings, glasses, and hairbrushes.

This was the salon. The staff were very friendly and seemed to be very happy working there.

Some more dolls, and the spa setups.

I loved this setup :)

Isabelle was gorgeous...I definitely want to get her in the future.

The underwear set up xD

And the Bitty Babies. I honestly would have rather had no babies and the historicals. I noticed that no one was buying the babies, and the little girls who were in the Bitty age range were going "No mommy, I don't want a baby, I want an ISABELLE!!!" 

More books.

More of gorgeous Izzy :D

The Valentines set. I didn't like it.

I really wanted that science lab set, but it was $45.

The sunglasses were cute, but overpriced.


The gymnastics set again, cause I love it so xD

And here is me, holding my new doll Evelyn Louisa W___ (my last name) up in front of the sign! Eva for short. Can anyone guess what number she is?

I had an incredible time there, and I would go again in a heartbeat. I hope they open more of these, and eventually full size stores! I love my new doll, and all the stuff I got (which I will show to you in a later post)! Please don't call me spoiled. I paid for everything with my own money that I earned by house sitting for my neighbor. I even paid for gas to drive there and back, and bought my parents a coffee. I hope you enjoyed this post and I'll post what I got soon. Thanks for reading! :D

  10.  In keeping with my overall blog theme, ;) which of the Frozen dolls that have been released is your favorite?  (e.g. the Disney Store fashion dolls, Disney Store Disney Animator's Collection and Toddler dolls, Limited Edition Disney Store dolls, Mattel dolls, etc)
I loved the limited edition dolls and the Disney Store fashion dolls!

Thanks for the party, Beastsbelle!

The Dollscars-A Photo Story!!!

Hi guys! In honor if the Oscars I decided to do a photo story! This story mainly focuses on Scarlett (my now named thrift store doll, but don't worry! If you commented a name it still might be used, as I am still deciding on her middle name! Oh, and if you are new to this blog Scarlett is the doll who is slightly taller then the other dolls.). Also, you will be seeing my new Lord of The Rings loving doll in this post, and just so you know, I will have a post up about her soon! And also, she will have a LOTR name, but for this post her name is Adalaide Granger. But, before we start: All photos are taken by me, and belong to me. DO NOT steal them. Please do not copy anything in this post (the name, the words, the photo setting, and the idea). Thank you. Now, on to The Dollscars!!!! :)

Scarlett walked down the red carpet at the Dollscars. Cameras were flashing all around her, it was so exciting! She had been nominated for Best Actress.

A girl stopped her at the end. She had a camera and was recording herself with a cell phone.
Abby-Hello, and welcome to the Dollscars! It's so thrilling to finally meet the wonderful new actress who just plunged into the scene! My name is Abby, and I write for the magazine "Doll Beat". May I interview you?

Scarlett-Of course!
Abby-Great! So Scarlett, what was your first reaction when you heard you had been nominated?
Scarlett-Well Abby, I jumped around the house like crazy!
Abby-Erm, alright then! And what did you do after you, ah, stopped "jumping around the house"?
Scarlett-I ran to pick out my outfit for the awards ceremony! 
Abby-Lovely, OK, thank you very much! Good luck!

Scarlett moved into the main room, and spotted a girl waving a sign with her face on it. She grinned, and made her way over to her.

Taryn-Ohmigoodness!!!!! I'm Taryn, your absolute biggest fan!!!! I entered a contest, and got to come and meet you!!!
Scarlett-Well, thank you! I'm very flattered by your enthusiasm! Have a nice evening!

Scarlett returned to the red carpet to watch the other stars come in. She was just in time to see Samantha Parkington come in!

Abby-Samantha! So lovely to see you again!
Samantha-Abby, how are you?
Abby-I'm fine! How does it feel to be nominated again for Best Supporting Actress?
Samantha-Wonderful! It's nice to know that I have so many loyal fans!

Then Kit Kittredge entered.

Abby-Hello there! I'm Abby, and I write for "Doll Beat"! How are you today, Margaret?

Kit-Oh, hello! I am fine, but please, call me Kit!
Abby-Will do! Are you excited to be nominated for Best Makeup and Hairstyling?
Kit-I am! I always fooled around with my own hair but I never dreamed it could come to this!
Abby-Thank you very much, good luck!
Kit-Thank you.

Next the new star Adalaide Granger came in!

Abby-Hello! I'm Abby, and I write for "Doll Beat"!
Abby-How do you feel to be here tonight?
Adalaide-It's a dream come true for me!
Abby-Well, it looks like the ceremony is starting! See you inside!

Crissy-Hello and welcome to the Dollscars, 2014!!!

Scarlett noticed a camouflaged paparazzi girl standing in the shadows, her camera in her hands.

She glanced at the awards, they were gorgeous! There was Best Actress, Best Dressed, and Best Hairstyle!

Crissy-Thank you all for coming tonight. It is a real honor for me to get to host the Dollscars! 

The four girls got into their places.

Crissy-Now, let's get to my favorite part...the awards! First up we have Best Dressed!

Abby-Ooh, this is so exciting!

Scarlett glanced down at her outfit, she was wearing a long paisley print gown with a brown sash, a messy bun, and pink sparkly shoes.

Samantha had on a long pink gown with a tulle overlay and a white bow.

Adalaide was wearing a sparkly blue and black gown.

Kit was wearing an orange tiered dress with criss-crossing strips of sequins.

Crissy-Just let me get the award!

Crissy-Here we are! And this years Best Dressed award goes to...

Crissy-Kit Kittredge!!! Kit, please join me on stage!

Kit-Thank you so much! This is such an honor!

Crissy-No problem, congratulations! 

Kit returned to her seat with a look of happiness on her face.

Crissy stepped back up to the microphone, another trophy in her hand.

It was a gorgeous blue one.

Crissy-I am pleased to announce that the Best Hairstyle trophy goes to...

Crissy-Samantha Parkington!!! Samantha, please come up!

As Samantha came up on stage, Scarlett noticed that she was wearing tennis shoes with her ballgown.

Abby sucked in her breath.
Abby-Ooh, we have a new trend! I just know EVERYONE will be wearing tennis shoes with ball gowns now!!!

Samantha-Thank you so much!
Crissy-Congrats Samantha!

Samantha returned to her seat.

Crissy-And now, the moment you have all been waiting for...

Crissy-...the winner of the Best Actress award...

Crissy-...and it goes to...


Crissy-Come up on stage, Scarlett!

As Crissy handed her the trophy Scarlett felt like she was going to faint!

Scarlett-Thank you so much! This is the best day ever!

Taryn-Woohoo! Go Scarlett, go Scarlett, YEAH!!!

Scarlett shook Crissy's hand, and then left the stage.

Next, she had to pose for a photo with Kit and Samantha, the other trophy winners.

Scarlett-Hold on!

Scarlett-Adalaide, would you like to be in the photo?
Adalaide-Yes! Thank you!

They all posed happily.

And then they took a group photo. They would all always remember this awesome day!

The End! Did you guys like it?
