Meet The Girls!

Lissie
Lissie was the first American Girl doll I ever owned, and the only one I owned as a child. She's fierce, independent, wild, and does as she darn well pleases. She does not know if she's obsessed with horses because she has yet to meet one, but she does like dogs very much. She has no time and manners to sit quietly and let people ramble. Lissie prefers for others to address her as General Washington, or Her Most High and Imperial Majesty. She is the one most like my own personality and the one I can get into the most scrapes with. She'll turn her nose up at no adventure except for polite society and we wouldn't have her any other way.

Sawako Lilly
Sawako Lilly was the first doll I purchased for myself as an adult, and my first non historical doll as well. I wanted her to keep me company as I studied in medical school and she has proven to be a most focused, and smart companion. She was originally supposed to be a mini me, but I decided I couldn't be as sweet and wonderful as she is so she stayed true to herself. The Sawako part or her name is after the female lead in the series Kimi ni Todoke, and the Lilly part of her name is after me. ^_^ Sawako Lilly is a genius at science and math, and soft-spoken and demure, which makes people think she's a pushover. But then they meet Lissie.

Samantha
Samantha was the doll that I wanted right after Felicity when I was a child. I felt that she was incredibly classy, elegant, and perfectly proper and good. As a adult, I searched for a while to find the right Samantha. For now, I still don't know if she is British Victorian, or American Victorian, but she can fit in the best of society. Her speech is eloquent, without contractions, and her posture perfect. Underneath all of that propriety though is a very good, kind girl who loves her family above all else (except perhaps chocolate), and no one is turned away at her afternoon teas, though she draws the line at Lissie bringing the cattle into the parlor.

Cecile
When I left American Girl, the latest historical I was aware of was Julie. Many years later when I rediscovered American Girl, I was floored by the bevy of new characters that had appeared in my absence. Out of all of them, I was instantly drawn to Cecile. I hold with great certainty she must be the most beautiful doll every created by American Girl, and after reading her story, I knew I must have her. She joined my doll family with her friend Marie-Grace, all the way from France. Filled with spunk and enthusiasm, Cecile loves stories, whether she is listening to them or telling them. She gets along with Lissie particularly well and they two of them are not afraid to be bold and daring in action and thought. 

Marie-Grace
I didn't know how I felt about Marie-Grace when I first saw her. She didn't leave a deep impression on me, especially standing next to her friend Cecile. But over time her sweet heart shaped face, her perfectly curled hair, and her gentle demeanor won me over. She doesn't say much, but that's alright because all the other girls know what she's thinking and feeling, and they all love her for it. Marie-Grace doesn't like to be in the spot light, but she will cheer with all her heart when her friends are standing in it. Reliable, and steady, all the other girls know they can trust her to come through for them. As shy as she is, the sassy, French fire is still within her and she can laugh with the best of them. 

Lydia Charlotte
Lydia Charlotte is very special to me. She is the first American Girl doll I received as an adult from a very precious friend. This is also the first time I changed an AG character into one of my own. I just didn't relate at all to the original character and in the end I am absolutely in love with my girl. Lydia Charlotte embodies the qualities our friendship makes me feel, serene and relaxed, something steady to hold on to when I get stressed. Her musical talents knows no bounds and she has yet to come up against an instrument she couldn't tempt a heart wrenching melody from. Very polite, very English, and very talented, Lydia Charlotte is the soul of the group (when Lissie isn't trying to steal her soul!), and a dreamer after my own heart. ^_^

    1. Thank you for your kind comments! I hope you will one day find a Felicity for your doll family! She's not a doll I would describe as drop dead gorgeous like I would Cecile or Lydia, but I think she just has so much character and spunk, and she's such a "FUN" doll! :D

      I actually have quite a few dolls that haven't officially joined the L&L family yet because I'm still trying to decide their character and how to integrate them into the L&L crew. ^_^ Also, to be honest I feel a bit saturated with how many dolls I have right now so I think I will take some time to properly enjoy the L&L girls and doing photo stories with them until I am ready to add more in! :D

    1. Thank you! I play violin and piano myself so I always knew I wanted a doll to learn music. ^_^

    2. Cool! I play viola and piano, and a few of my dolls are musicians.

    3. I play(ed) violin. In elementary school, there was a violin club, but my middle school doesn't have orchestra, only band and chorus, so I will play either flute, clarinet, or oboe. My mom and aunt used to play the clarinet, so it will be pretty cool if I play that.

    1. I don't find them interesting. I like historical characters because I enjoy their books. The GotY books don't appeal to me.

    2. What beauties you have in your collection! I enjoy seeing 'all of my dolls' posts because I love to see doll taste people have. Let me say you have a very unique, diverse collection of girls! I love all of your posts and this one is a favorite.

    3. Thank you very much for the kind words! ^_^ I have many dolls who either serve different roles or are waiting for me to warm to them, but these 6 dolls form the core of the L&L family. :D

  10. This is (shockingly) the first time that I've read this page! I love your dolls' characters, especially Lilly's. And I can't tell you how nice it is to find dolls that don't speak slang and are (mostly) very nice and proper! (I'm looking at you, Lissie.) ;)

    1. Hahaha! Lissie turns up her nose at the notion of nice and proper. She much prefers chocolate and mischief. ^_^ Thank you very much for stopping by and reading!

    1. Oh I meant Lydia Charlotte...... whoops. And I think the next doll to join the L&L family should be Lea. In her books, she's pretty funny and energetic!

    2. Thank you very much for the kind words! ^_^ I haven't finished Lea's books yet but it sounds like she has a fun character!

    1. I have officially fallen in LOVE with Sawako Lilly! She is the prettiest doll, basically, EVER and I love her in the May Kimono. I want her so bad! I have a MyAG and she looks like me but her hair isn't as long. So, in conclusion, I NEED SAWAKO LILLY! If I'd get her I'd still name her Lilly:) but last name Valley after my mother's favorite flower, lilies of the valley.

    2. Which kimono is Lilly wearing?
      -From Above This

    3. Sawako Lilly is not wearing a kimono in the photo on this page. She is wearing a traditional Chinese dress called Qipao. This one was created by AG and is from Ivy's collection.

    1. Thank you so much! I love all my girls but Lissie has a special place in my heart of hearts (though for the sake of her ego I think it's better to not shamelessly flatter her too much). :D
