It just stuck in my mind—the whole story about my Aunt’s favorite dress in her favorite color. It was a red—no, not just red but the color of a rose. I think she called it an American Beauty Rose. It’s a true deep rich red—so much more than just red. So, I begged her to show me the dress she was talking about. Turns out she wore it to a movie premiere—one of the only movies she was ever in.
Anyway, I loved the dress—and she gave it to me! It’s this triple tier pleated lace dress with long sleeves and a high jewel neck. She said it was unusual for the period—everyone was wearing strapless—but she was a standout. I tried on the entire outfit she wore—the dress, the red pumps, the red crystal necklace and my favorite thing—the oversized flower worn as a hat. Guess what? Everything fit perfectly. Dad did get me into the opening of the Costume Exhibit at the Museum—so now I’ll have something to wear. I was even thinking about red stockings, but the outfit already comes with nude hose. She did tell me that at one time, she had a cape that went with the outfit, but she said she’d have to look for it. I have to say, just putting this on, made me feel like a real American Beauty myself! American Beauty is a dressed doll and an acrylic stand is included. Doll shown is a prototype and may change during production.
