Here is her dress in the box the day I got it:
|I really like that Amelia has her own color scheme and design to her boxes by the way.|
And here is the dress on her in the garden today!
This is actually a five piece set and we'll start with the hat!
|Here you can see the decorations|
The dress is made of a pink taffeta-silk (according to AGfAT) and in my opinion that wasn't a very good choice for this. It just seems to look very wrinkled all the time. Even in the promotional shots, but maybe it only bothers me?
|Velvet ribbon and lace on the cuffs.|
Last and totally least are her slippers:
Here are a few more pictures for you:
|Amelia thinking deep thoughts like man this lady needs to weed out here!|

I do have some exciting news! The first is that the mysterious doll I mentioned forever ago finally has a shipping date and I should get her before Christmas!! The second even more awesome piece of news is that I'm visiting the St. Louis American Girl store this weekend with my mom! We are meeting in St. Louis to take my brother to the Japanese Festival and the store isn't far away from our hotel. I'm not sure what I'm going to bring home but you can bet there will be a post all about it when I get back. Till then!
