Great photo find by Chrissa and her mom! This is a vintage photo of what looks very much like Maryellen's (meet) swing dress.
The doll will have side swept bangs like Grace.
A bike? A Dog? I'm so looking forward to her collection, I imagine circle skirt dresses, twin sets/cardigans, gloves and lots of hair accessories. I'm REALLY hoping for an entire bedroom set, (if the BF dolls are getting new beds). Maryellen may have a Jenny Lind bed. I have mixed feeling about a diner. (I don't have room) A soda fountain restaurant would have a lot of fun accessories. I'm sure as with Grace's collection, there will be separate food items and diner essentials sold. What about a vintage silver Airstream?
White Christmas? This album was recorded Jan 1957 and released the same year. I hope Elvis is a part of her story, how could he not be? He began touring 1956 after his first big single Heartbreak Hotel. (I'm a huge Elvis fan! My first concert in 1974 was seeing Elvis at the LA Forum). Maybe toward the end of her story she becomes an Elvis fan (I hope).
Chances are GREATER her favorite movie is White Christmas (released Oct 1954) and her favorite singers are Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. Which would explain this RUMORED dress for her.
What are you hoping to see within her collection?
