This is my charming Kit Kittredge in her contemporary gardening outfit (American Girl, circa 2008). I have always thought of this outfit as a modern "Meet" outfit for Kit. Kit wears this ensemble when she is feeling imaginative or wants to "commune with nature" (also, when she has been spending too much time with her neo-Romantic best friend Ruthie). If Kit has writer's block, or is preparing her latest short story (because even journalists write fiction sometimes) she will hike through the woods and bring a book to her preferred out of doors reading nook, Moss-on-the-Rock (she also likes to give Robin Hood-inspired names to the local landscape). Kit is very matter-of-fact about her curiosity, a juxtaposition if I've ever heard one. I'm glad I've known her for almost ten years (this December) or else I would just think she's a bit peculiar. "Curiouser and curiouser!" wrote Lewis Carroll. That maybe be Ruthie's motto, but it applies to Kit, too.
The outfit I wish had in doll size is a Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane dress. The photo is one from the May 2013 issue of NYLON magazine, photographed by Jessica Haye and Clark Hsiao. [I took a photo of that photo with my camera.] I love this outfit because it is a Romantic (in the artistic sense) full-color-spectrum, glimmering, billowy, ruffled dress with dark leather accents and a wide-brimmed hat. Dashing!
I do not have a blog myself, but my friends' blog is www.americangirlcollage.blogspot.com. (They gave me permission to post their web site's name on my entry).
