So I want to share a little with you about organizing your dolly goodies so that you can style your dolls more easily.
When I go to redress a doll I pull several options and start laying them out together to see what I like. Within minutes a vision comes to mind and I can see how I want the outfit to look. I then pull accessories like tights/stockings, belts, hats and finally shoes, jewelry and a purse.
So get organized and go have fun with it! Pretend your Rachel Zoe for the day and style an outfit and then look around at your horde of dolls and see who would suit it best. That's the best thing about styling for dolls, you can style the clothes and then fit the doll into it, whereas in real life you've got to keep the person in mind first and style the clothes around the person.
So go ahead and flip through an InStyle magazine and get inspired! Heck, copy an ad you see! Watch What Not To Wear! Watch the Rachel Zoe show! And if you don't know by now, I'm a huge addict of her show on Bravo. So if you get together a fab outfit, pick out a doll and say to yourself, just as Rachel would, "Seriously, if that doll wears this, she would totally shut it down!"
