New Prettie Girls Have Arrived

Like so many others, I too jumped at the chance to get the discounted Prettie Girls from Zulily. I already had Valencia and Lena, so I ordered Kimani and Dahlia. When I checked out, they offered me free shipping on the Cynthia Bailey doll, so of course, I ordered her too. Since her price was also significantly discounted from the doll available on the website, I felt it was a good opportunity.  Here are all of my Prettie Girls!


From L to R: Dahlia, Lena, Kimani, Cynthia Bailey doll, Valencia
Many have asked about what clothes are a good fit for these ladies, since their rather bodacious behinds (which are awesome, BTW) do not fit well into the standard Barbie line of clothes. If you also have Mixis dolls, whose bodies are also well proportioned, you will find that their clothing is a nice fit for the Prettie Girls. 

The Mixis line of clothing (you can buy clothing without the dolls) is very high quality as are their shoes and they both will work well with the Prettie Girls.

Dahlia and Lena look very nice in these Mixis outfits. The boots and shoes also fit on these dolls and are of very high quality.

These are nice, leather look - not plastic!
They have zippers in the back.

Look how cute the flats are!

Since Dahlia and Lena got to show off in Mixis clothes, Kimani and Valencia wanted to as well!

The Mixis dolls are a little thicker on top. I tried on the Prettie Girls clothes on the Mixis. Dahlia's outfit fit just fine, but her top has a little stretch to it. Kimani's dress did not close all the way in the back.



The Prettie Girls shoes are plastic, and not bad, but the Mixis girls want their very nice shoes back!

I have not figured out where everybody fits into my community yet. Since Valencia and Lena have both been here a while, they have assumed their roles already.  Valencia is amongst the college group.  Lena is married and has a daughter.  Below she is with her husband Wesley (I think he looks like Wesley Snipes) and 6 year old daughter Janessa. I don't know their last name yet though!
