Madelynne's Adventure Outfit

Hey guys, it's Zaira! Earlier this month, we posted Violet's adventure outfit. Today I'll be showing you her twin sister Madelynne's adventure outfit. Maddie and Violet are fraternal twins- which means they aren't identical, so they don't look exactly alike. In Violet's post, we showed you the outfit she wore for her trip down to the rapids in the river. Yesterday, Maddie went to the hills on the edge of the island to photograph this outfit.


Don't worry, Maddie wasn't in any danger when she posed in the road for this picture! On our island, there are no cars- which means this road is only used for horses and bikes! It wasn't very busy, since most of the tourists were in town eating lunch when we took this photo. 


You can see how empty the road is here, and Madelynne's full outfit. She's wearing this off-the-shoulder top, cutoff shorts, and cowgirl boots that we borrowed from our friend Nikki.


Venus got a little distracted and took this picture of a sea gull...


I love this outfit on Mads!


Here is the cliff we had to climb up to take these photos! Hope you enjoyed, we got a ton of mosquito bites so it better have been worth it!

Venus's New Hair + Outfit


Um. Well...yes, that is Venus with mint green hair. No, it's not permanent, and she's back to brown now. But it was pretty while it lasted! And I love how well it goes with this coral dress from American Girl. We picked it up on our recent school trip to the city, and it actually belongs to Indie. She let us borrow it for these photos. Thanks Indie!


I like how pastel this outfit is, but Venus's bold makeup gives it a bold touch. I also picked out these hair gem corkscrews to add, because of the sparkle in the dress.


Here you can see all the colors a bit better than in the last shot. The sunlight was so pretty in these photos. We took them just before we went on a hike to Fort Holmes to watch the sunset. It was beautiful.


And here are the hair jewels! Thanks for reading and I'll see you all later. Bye!

Hi guy's it's Zaira, and although I'm not sure what galaxy Venus has on her shirt, it sure is pretty!




Sorry for such a quick post- my friend Madelynne is waiting to head off to school!

Venus's Spin on Grace's Sightseeing Outfit

Hi guys! It's Zaira, and today I wanted to show you how Venus styled Grace's sightseeing outfit. This is a new outfit from AG that they just came out with for the Grace (GOTY) collection. It's pretty girly, and therefore I was sort of surprised when Venus picked it out. Once she put it all together, though, I understood. Venus has a very fancy wedding to go to in a few weeks and needed a more formal outfit to wear. 


In this photo you can see the two main pieces- the striped tee shirt with 3/4 length sleeves, and the white skirt. The skirt actually has three layers- a satiny opaque fabric, a netting, and the sheer material with tiny flocked polka dots. This skirt is a very versatile piece- I highly recommend this outfit!


In this photo you can see the sequined top of the shirt, and the white bow. Also, Venus is wearing her trademark black winged eyeliner and red lipstick.


Speaking of trademark pieces, how about these boots??? They're fabulous! Venus wears these with everything, except her pj's and swimsuit, of course! They go with pretty much everything and they can be both dressy and casual, depending on how she styles them.


Venus was just going to wear her hair in her favorite style- two long braids. However, that's where I came in. I wouldn't post this on my fashion blog if I didn't at least help style it, and Venus and i both agreed that these simple pearl cat ears were the way to go to add just a touch of whimsical glamour. These actually belong to Nikki, but she let us borrow them for the photos. Thanks, Nikki!


And here's the hairstyle I was talking about. We put her hair in a simple ponytail and then clipped the two twisted strands in with this mint green bow- it matches Venus's eyes and adds a touch of unexpected color to the outfit. Plus, it echoes the bow on the front of the shirt!


Here's one last look at the outfit- I love it!

Violet's Adventure Outfit

Hi guys! It's Zaira, and today I'd like to share with you an outfit modeled by my friend Violet. Violet is Madelynne's twin sister, and Maddie has a post coming up next! Violet, Venus, and I went on a little adventure to take these pictures. That's how we found out that some of us *coughvenuscough* really don't like bugs! But that's a story for another time :)

Anyway, here is Violet's outfit. It's quite simple but still practical- the shirt is a white tank top with a holographic rainbow heart, and the skirt, which is actual a skort, is a light periwinkle blue color.


We chose these metallic bronze combat boots, that we borrowed from Venus, to echo the metallic/holographic shirt. They're actual hiking boots, which  makes them both fashionable and practical. 


Lastly, Violet has her hair in two braids tied off with purple elastics. In the background of this photo you can see the rapids in the river- I'd love to go rafting there sometime! Hmm, maybe I'll do that this summer!

Flowers in the City


Hi guys! It's Zaira, and today I'll be posting about my lovely best friend Venus's outfit that the two of us put together for our trip to Chicago. It's really a tunic style dress- and that's it! From Venus's other posts you may have noticed that she usually wears the same black combat boots- they're her favorites! And in most of her photos on this blog she's also wearing these knee socks, but she doesn't always wear those! Venus says there's no way she's wearing tights, because they're uncomfortable and not good for adventure! So whenever I suggest tights, V always reaches for these knee socks, which work just as well in my opinion.


Here is the full outfit. You can see that Venus has her hair in braids- she has really long, curly hair and although I think it's lovely, she says that it's a pain to take care of and therefore always wears it up so she doesn't have to cut it short. This two braid style is her favorite.


This photo is a little dark, because as I've mentioned before, Venus is usually our photographer and I don't know how to work her camera that well! But I guess I really just wanted to show you how Venus does her makeup- she loves to wear red lipstick and black winged eyeliner, but to keep it from looking too dramatic, she never covers up her freckles, which I think is a great idea! 

I hope you enjoyed this outfit! I'm off to go upload the photos Venus and I took of Violet for the post that was supposed to go up last week, but she had a swimming practice. I'll try to get that up within an hour to make up for not posting on Wednesday when we were out of town!

Punk & Plaid

Hey guys! It's me, Zaira, and today my lovely best friend Venus graciously agreed to model an outfit for me, so I could get my first blog post up. I originally had my other friend Violet ready to model a very different outfit for this post, but she had a last-minute swim practice and wasn't able to come. Usually Venus would take the photos, but, well, as you can see that didn't work out this time! I took the photos myself, and I think next time I'll let Venus handle it and ask one of the other girls to model, because as you can probably tell from the photos I really don't know how to work V's fancy-shmancy DSLR camera! I think I'll let Venus handle the photos next time! iPhone photography is hard enough for me, thank you very much.


Anyway, here's the outfit. Most of the pieces are ones that came right out of Venus's closet. I made the shirt as a birthday present for her last year using some of my iron-on transfer paper, and we both thought this post might be a great place to show it off. The skirt is mine- I usually wear it with my Hogwarts shirt for a school-uniform kind of look, but it works well for the same look with Venus's outfit too. I'm pretty sure the socks originally belonged to Felicity- left them on the stairs, and, well, we kind of just took them! The boots are Venus's, and she ALWAYS wears them. I don't know if I've ever seen her without them, except when she's in her pajamas, of course! 


Here you can see Venus's yellow satin hairbow. I found this in our new friend Madelynne's closet, you'll meet her in another post, hopefully soon! Madelynne has a great collection of hair things, and she very generously let me borrow this one for Venus's outfit.


Here is a look at V's hair. It was quite messy by the end of the photoshoot, I'm afraid, and unfortunately Saige, who did the hairstyle and is the bast at styling, was off to ballet and not available to fix it. But look how long Venus's hair is! 

Anyway, hope you liked my first post! Next time hopefully Violet will be around to model, so I can  let Venus take over her rightful job as photographer! And after Violet's post, you might not hear from me for a week or so because Madelynne, Venus, and I are travelling to Chicago for an 8th grade trip. Us girls are the only 8th graders at the Academy this year, so it should be fun. Maybe I'll take the pictures for Madelynne's fashion post while I'm there!

Until next time,
~Zaira

Welcome to Worldwide Dolls!

Hi, I'm Zaira, and I'd like to welcome you to Worldwide Dolls, where I'll be posting photography and other adventures that my friends and I share. My best friends and I all are very excited to share our lives with you through this blog! We live on a teeny tiny island in Michigan called Mackinac Island, and there aren't that many occasions to talk to people that don't live here, so we hope to make some internet friends with dolls elsewhere- kind of like pen pals, but faster!

See you soon!
