Special Delivery

Special Uniform [6]
Originally uploaded by sweetmilktea

Yesterday Claudia and I received a very special package from Rosette Doll. In early March, just a bit past Valentine’s Day, I had ordered a clothing set from the company. They posted a cute story about festivities that occur at the school during Valentine’s Day, from the usual chocolate gift-giving to a special celebration for the principal’s birthday.

To celebrate this occasion, the students wear a special uniform in a rich chocolate-brown shade. This was the first outfit offered for sale on the company’s website, and I was very eager to own another outfit that I knew would perfectly fit my doll’s odd proportions. It also was in my favor that I adore dark brown–especially because the style of the drop-waisted sailor uniform looks especially nice in a darker color. The pale trim on the skirt, collar, and sleeves shows up for a striking contrast. I placed the order and waited.

And waited.

And waited…

No matter when I checked, the status of my order was still “preparing,” not “transit.” I am quite a patient person, and I was rather busy with schoolwork and my personal life, so I didn’t inquire to the company. However, last week marked that I had been waiting for three months, so I posted an inquiry on their message board. Almost instantly my package was shipped, and it arrived just 48 hours later!

I am very happy that I waited! The quality is just as exquisite as her other clothing, and the dark color looks so nice on my pale little dear. I used the pictures I took of the package to form a sort of photo-story. I’m still working on the details of what I want the story to say, and perhaps once I am finished I shall post it here.
