Nellie wore her Meet outfit in the book Nellie’s Promise.
Nellie is a beautiful doll. I give her an A+! Her reddish blonde hair is beautiful and unique. Her freckles are darling, and those eyes are deep blue and very thoughtful. Nellie has bangs, which are also cute. They are different than most AG bangs in that they are thinner and shorter. They really look good on her. Nellie's hair is shoulder length and a little longer than Kit's hair is. Nellie has the Josefina face mold. BTW--the blue in Nellie's eyes is the darker blue, like Kit's, not the lighter blue like Kirsten's.
Nellie's meet dress is gorgeous, too. It is obviously post-adoption and somewhat higher class. It is blue and white with a ruffled white color which I think is adorable. The neck opening is sort of square-shaped and shows a bit of Nellie's cloth body. Nellie's dress has a blue sash and Nellie's hair comes with a matching ribbon. The white tights are soft and easy to put on Nellie, though I caution you to be careful when getting the tights too near velcro (as is used to close the meet dress) since it is easly caught and snagged. The only negative about Nellie's meet outfit is the mary-jane shoes, which are just like Molly's and Samantha's. These are a sort of rubbery plastic and do not look very realistic. They are cute enough, though, and little girls would hardly notice.
Nellie's accessories are darling as well! Her hat is beautiful as is her little coin purse. Both of these match her dress. The coin purse is embroidered and oh so cute! It is difficult to put Nellie's hat on her when she has the large blue ribbon (that matches the sash) in her hair, however, so one might try taking that off first. My favorite thing about Nellie's accessories is her cross necklace. It has a definite Irish design and looks a little antiquated, so it is easy to see that it was Nellie's mothers. Good quality metal, as well.
Nellie, her meet outfit, and accessories get an A+.
