After a recent visit to my favorite local toy store... you know, the one with the reversed "R" in its name, I discovered outfits for one of my newest play-line dolls, BFC Ink Calista by MGA Entertainment. The extra boxed outfits for these 9-1/2-inch dolls are adorable and economically priced, too. The denim dress ensemble is adorable as are several others, which made it extremely difficult to choose just one. But I managed. The others might follow me home on a future toy store trip, all at once or perhaps a few at a time (based on availability and funds, of course).
After removing her original outfit, Calista was redressed in the "Soft 'N' Sweet Fashion." It includes a pink and white polka dot, baby doll-style top, pink thin-wale corduroy short-shorts, pink and white thigh-high leggings, and pink and white low-top "Chucks." Calista decided to shed a measure of her geek chic style by wearing her black framed spectacles on her head for now. She holds the pink, floral-print fabric backpack included with her new clothes.
Redressing Calista was fun. It provided a sufficient amount of "new doll fix" to sustain me for a while. I urge every collector to try it at least once.
