|Note: Cece is wearing her crinoline and chemise in all of these pictures|
It also is decorated with a thick, black velvet ribbon above the hem.
Cecile comes with white pantalettes and ribbed, knee-high socks.
And of course she comes with two small, white satin ribbons:
Cecile's meet accessories include a hat, necklace and white gloves.
My least favorite are the gloves.
I do, however, really like her necklace!
|Someday I will get around to fixing that kink.|
This necklace is much easier to put on that Marie-Grace's thank goodness and so I didn't mind taking it off for this picture. This chain is the perfect length and the clasp is easy. When I do Marie-Grace's meet outfit you will see why it NEVER leaves her neck.
Surprisingly my favorite part of this set is the hat!
At first I really didn't care for this hat at all. But mostly that is because I wouldn't shove it down on her head all the way and so it looked dumb. I've lost my fear of destroying curly hair since then and so now I love it. I love the way the ribbon pokes over the top of her head like ears. I love that the rosette matches the little roses on her dress. I love that the velvet ribbon is ruched and so has a nice contrasting texture. I really think it completes the outfit!
Here are a couple more pictures of Cece:
This is probably one of my favorite meet outfits. I love the how the colors look next to Cecile's hair and skin and I love how they bring out her eyes! The little details really make it for me. All the velvet and the pleating and the puff sleeves with the lining and then how perfectly her hat matches. ALL of that just makes this whole outfit feel like an American Girl product should feel. It's absolutely sumptuous, which is perfect for a girl of her wealth and social standing in New Orleans in her time!
Next up is Kirsten's Birthday Dress! I hope you all enjoyed this look at an amazing meet outfit and I will see you next time!
