A quick note: Terri’s Touch

In between midterms, tests, exams and projects, I saw that Terri’s Touch on Etsy is having a 50% off sale on Julie clothes and other select items.  I couldn’t pass it up and ordered some.  I’ve always liked the look of Terri’s clothes for dolls and while I don’t have time to go into an in depth review right now, here’s a sneak peek of two of the outfits I ordered.

I am not paying secondary market prices for Kanani items.  I simply don’t want them that badly and just the fact I have the doll without selling a kidney was down to sheer luck with an itchy trigger finger on my computer mouse.  I am perfectly satisfied looking for Kanani themed items from other sources instead.  And especially at $8 (after an “off season sale”), I simply could not pass this up.

 It’s a rarity: clothes for Julie that are actually period appropriate and look like something a ten year old girl would have worn at the time.  While I understand that AG redesigned Julie’s BeForever wardrobe to appeal to young girls of today, I just can’t get on board with it myself.  If you or your daughter like the current AG fashions for Julie, that’s great and I support that.  You do you.  But they make my eyeballs hurt.

However, with this outfit: I love the pants.  The pattern of the fabric lines up on the seams and the cuffs flare out quite nicely.  Her turtleneck is simple, but well made, and of course any 70s girl can dig the fringed vest with the peace sign.  I really like how this outfit has a color palette that’s very 70s and isn’t obnoxiously bright neon pink, purple, and yellow.  The textures of the fabric even feel appropriate for the period. 

All the outfits were easy to get on and off and had velcro fasteners.  Another thing I like about Terri’s Touch is that the target market could play with them easily, and they have a good, clean look for an adult collection.  She covers both bases easily and good lord you can’t beat the price especially after a half off sale.
