NovaFirefly's trip to AG DC (Photo Heavy Post!)

Hey everyone!  I happened to be off work Sunday, the 3rd, and after receiving my email from American Girl, stating that all in store purchases received triple points... I knew I had to take a trip down to DC!  I live about 1½ hours away from the Tyson's Corner/Washington DC store, so without traffic, it was an easy jaunt.  I told some pics to share with everyone, and I hope you enjoy!

Upon entering the store...

This was to the left of the foyer walkway 

The Holiday dresses!  I was pleasantly surprised to find that I liked them both, though the first one would most likely be better without sleeves.  But they were adorable.

The hotel dress and sightseeing outfit!  I like them both, but ended up passing on purchasing them.

One side of their foyer school display...

And the other!

I do love the pajamas!  So cute

I think Z's little around the city sightseeing outfit is adorable and versatile, and her umbrella and puppy raincoat are precious!

Her computer setup is really spot on!

Melody's outfit is definitely going into the collection, and I was surprised about how much I enjoyed the detailing on Kaya's trading outfit

I will forever love Maryellen's collection, as I love the style!!!

The Blues!! I love the darker blues on both Josefina and Rebecca!  As it's one of my favorite colors, I supposed that makes sense 😉😉😉

I cannot help my love for all things southern... and I actually found myself starting to want Logan again, after seeing him.  However, he was not on the shopping list Sunday... and so I had to wait.  But his leather jacket and jeans are calling to me.

I loved the stands!  The concession stand gives me so many ideas with fall around the corner.  Too bad I have no place to create displays or to craft right now.  The ice cream stand makes me want to build my old-fashioned ice cream parlor... or the AmericanGirlIdeas Cold Stone Creamery!

After seeing them... I still love the Celebration dress... and if I'd had extra tip money, this would've gone home with me.  When I get it, I may be mutilating the shoes though, as I don't like the straps that wrap around her legs. Her Take Flight performance outfit, at least on the display doll, was a bit disappointing.  I love the top and headband, but I disliked the shoes, and the skirt seemed to puff out funny in the front. Perhaps if I messed with it, I'd like it.  Next time, will have to do that... with the one not behind glass.

Gabriela's studio and bedroom!  Very pretty colors.

I love the little nail polishes!  And scrub!

The dark skinned classic mold. I love her outfit, and the blue eyes with darker skin...and the Kanani look-a-like!  At least, the face mold, medium skin, and hazel eyes.  I kept getting a horrible glare, and this was the best picture I could get of her.  I may need to save up and get one like her, just so that I can finally have my medium skinned Jess mold... though now I'm wondering what a dark skinned Jess mold would look like...

Nanea's big ticket item, the Grocery Store!  It was quite cute, though it had quite the gathering around it, so I didn't have time to explore it as much as I wanted to.  Next time!

I am not sure that I will ever get her school outfit or swimsuit, but the displays were cute

Alas, they were sold out of the one item I truly wanted to Nanea... and so I had the arduous task of deciding on what else to spend my money on.

Her beautiful collection...  I do not need all of her stuff, but my preview of her PJs and Holoku dress, and then seeing the two outfits in store.... I will be adding them at some point.

I couldn't get a pic of the other side of the hotel... but I will say, it is very detailed.

And yet another pic of the "Travel in Style" purple dress, and the Sightseeing outfit... I was not sold on the mix and match abilities enough to purchase it....

However.... I did decide to get the Enchanted Winter Outfit (sans earmuffs)... there are at least 3-4 different ways I could mix and match the pieces!  It included a sweater, headband, quilted skirt, leggings, and furry boots!

As I left, I had to get a pic of the Nanea display...

... and as you can see... I left the store with a few items... will do another post on that soon!
Hope you had fun looking through my pictures from Sunday!  What were your favorite items?
