My daughter was undecided on her first doll. She wanted Elizabeth because she shares her name. She wanted Mia because she is a LE and shares her puppy's name. And she wanted the JLY doll that most resembled her. She told me that I could surprise her with any of these and she would be happy. Wow, it was a tough decision for me!
I finally decided on Elizabeth because she shared her name and home state of Virginia. I have not regretted this at all! She is stunning. I had never seen a doll in person and when I opened her box she really took my breath away. She has the sweetest face and gorgeous hair. My daughter thinks I made the right choice, too.
Elizabeth is great for almost any time period and we usually dress her in more modern clothing. She looks adorable in pigtails! Her hair is very long and thick and does get tangled quite a bit. It can be time consuming to comb it out and she does lose hair. We try to keep her hair pulled back to avoid having to do this.
We are thrilled that Elizabeth has joined our family and we give her an A+. Her only drawback in my opinion is her long, thick hair. However, that is also one of her best features.

I, too, LOVE my Chrissa doll. I think overall she is just gorgeous. Her blue eyes are striking and I love the Josefina face mold.
Her hair has a few different shades of brown mixed throughout (lowlights?), which adds a nice touch to her otherwise thinnish hair. I do wish it were a bit thicker, especially in the back. I had a tough time styling it at first. It was frustrating going from Elizabeth's long hair to Chrissa's shorter length. Now I love that a simple clip to the side is all it takes to make her look great.
I am disappointed in her Meet Outfit. The dress is okay, but nothing great. The shoes are very cute. I love the sparkles. Even after watching her DVD, the dress just looks out of place and not very modern. Don't get me wrong, the dress is cute enough, just not right for Chrissa or a modern girl. She would have done better with something blue. Oh, and in the DVD she is wearing a turtleneck and leggings with her dress. I think the doll should have had those as well. You can see from another post that leggings look great with the dress.
Overall rating - A- Doll - A Meet outfit - C
Really the outfit is an easy fix and I wouldn't trade my Chrissa for anything!
