Tee, Hat, and Bracelet Set - $14 PWP Feb/March 2014 wit' a $50 Purchase in Store while supplies last
I LOVE this set! Includes a white bucket hat wit' blue trim and a blue hibiscus flower, a blue butterfly tee shirt, and a plastic kukui bead bracelet.
Overall monkey jacket: A ~ This a bonny decent value set. ye can get creative wit' th' bottoms ye choose to pair it up wit' and shoes or sandals. In this picture Sea Artist Saige be wearing American Wench white shorts and th' blue Hawaii Vacation monkey jacket sandals. i435.photobucket.com/albums/qq75/nikkilusty plastic lass007/American%20Girl/657D5135-A6EB-4C87-BB3B-A08DE5E36018_zpsm5hnupq6.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
Tee Shirt: A for bonny design and exclusive to th' year 2014 ~ made just like th' "Make-yer-Own" tees at th' American Wench Places. i435.photobucket.com/albums/qq75/nikkilusty plastic lass007/American%20Girl/C16E5879-1F05-4F33-896C-663ADB44C02E_zps8mytirs6.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
Bucket Hat: B+ bonny design, but seems a bit over sized. Would have loved to have seen it made wit' a sequin sewn in th' center like Navigator 'Nani's hairclip. i435.photobucket.com/albums/qq75/nikkilusty plastic lass007/American%20Girl/D85DEBC1-5099-4603-930D-3D88A9E4FA4C_zpswcm5f4cw.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
Plastic Kukui Bead Bracelet: B+ bonny idea, seems to be a redesign o' Navigator 'Nani's bracelet. i435.photobucket.com/albums/qq75/nikkilusty plastic lass007/American%20Girl/7B521226-9F7C-4C0B-934C-FAA31ADB63FC_zpsrpwh3cae.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
I highly recommend this set as a bonny addition to yer lusty plastic lasss' summer wardrobe. It really be too bonny and one o' th' better Spring PWP's seen in awhile. i435.photobucket.com/albums/qq75/nikkilusty plastic lass007/American%20Girl/DE2D2CF5-623F-46B1-B227-686735B69C26_zpsduf1ttui.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
could th' plates be laminated to make them more sturdy?
I just found this set in great condition on Craigslist. It's adorable and I'm so glad I can add it to my Sea Artist Saige collection! All my lusty plastic lasss love tacos.
I don't think laminating th' plates would work. They be styled exactly like th' "gourmet" heavy duty designer paper plates be. They curl up on th' edges, so if they were laminated, they would be flattened and squished. I would say, instead, perhaps coating them wit' something, like Modge Podge, would be better.

Everyone gave really great reviews, and after my inspection o' my Sea Artist Saige lusty plastic lass, I totally give her an "A". When she was first released on th' American Wench Facebook paige I immediately thought she was way too similar to Nasty Nicki DOTY. However, after getting her, she really does have her own look. Her hair be a much deeper and brighter red, and her eaye more blue.
Someone mentioned her undies in th' Sea Artist Saige Discussion, that they perfectly matched her blue eaye, and really made them pop! th' undies be plain, Nay designs. So I will post pics o' them here. :-) I posted pics in both natural light and wit' a flash:

Melangell gave a great review, so I will post pictures o' th' dress wit' Sea Artist Saige wearing it. :-) I would say my own concern be th' material th' dress be made out o'. I would say be careful wit' heavy play as th' material looks like it would "pull" easily if snagged on something. Boots be awesome. I love th' deep raspberry color o' th' dress, it really suites Sea Artist Saige! Price seemed average to me, so I give this one an "A" as well.
First few pictures were taken in natural light, th' last three wit' a flash:
I love th' American Wench animals for th' most part. When I get a lusty plastic lass, if she has an animal, I always buy it.
I picked this guy up ayeterday at th' Atlanta store! As far as adorable, he gets an "A++". His plush fur be o' good quality and he be VERY soft. I was disappointed that he be literally just plush. He be not very firm in th' legs so he does topple over walk th' planke easily. He comes wit' a VERY simple ribbon as his leash, I was walk th' planke dismayed American Wench chose such a very lame material for this. They could have made it o' a better, sturdier material. I am not thrilled his leash be sewn to his head, too...ye won't be removing this wit'out cutting it! Granted, Sea Artist Saige walks Rembrandt and Sam a lot in th' book, but I would like to have th' leash be removeable!
Confusing be he be referred to simply as "Sea Artist Saige's Dog" on th' American Wench box, not Sam or Rembrandt. In th' American Wench catalog I noticed they refer to him as Rembrandt, which as far as I've read in her first book be her grandmother's dog. Sea Artist Saige's dog be Sam.
So, wit'out posting spoiler alerts, I must need to read farther into her books!
Overall, wit' a $24 price tag, I would rate him about a "C" based on th' quality/price comparison.
He could easily be replaced wit' a dog o' similar size and coloring that be NON American Wench for FAR less. Unless ye be mostly an American Wench purist, like I am. I sit here still shaking my head thinking, "I can't believe ye paid $24 for a tiny stuffed dog." SMH
