Dree Hill Introduction
This is a short story to introduce my new Dree Hill doll. Turns out I bought the wrong Dree Hill doll. I'm not familiar with the Color Infusion line, so I didn't know there were two versions of her. I wanted "The Best Dressed Ever" Dree Hill, but bought "Cinematic Convention" Dree Hill. The main differences are her hair color and skin tone. When she arrived, I knew something was different but couldn't figure it out until I went to the internet. At first I was disappointed, but this Dree Hill is looking straight ahead, whereas the other one is looking to the side. The Dree Hill available for sale, nude, on the Integrity site, is also Cinematic Convention. I was considering changing her hair color, but will leave it at is. I do plan to shampoo it, which will make it look better than it does now.
Angelica and her daughter are having lunch with cousin Faith and friend Valencia.
Adele and friend Dree Hill, have just arrived at McD's.
"Thanks for stopping here with us. I know McD's is not your thing, but I promised Sydney if she behaved at the nail salon, we would stop and get her some fries." (Adele)
"No problem. I know all about those emergency McDonald runs. I made a few back in the day." (Dree)
"So what's going on with you and Ian? You still seeing him?" (Angelica)
"Yep. He's home studying right now, but we're going out later." (Valencia)
"So that's a small burger, small fry, milk, a small Coke, and a chocolate sundae. Anything else?" (Mari)
"That will do it." (Adele)
"Okay. $5.84." (Mari)
Adele pays for everything, then Mari retrieves all the items.
"Here you go." (Mari)
As the ladies head to the booth in the back, Sydney keeps her eyes on her fries.
As Dree makes her way to the back, she hears a familiar voice. She continues to the table.
After setting the tray down, Dree looks to the other booth.
"Ahem. Hello ladies" (Dree clearing her throat loudly)
The ladies look in her direction.
"Mom! What are you doing here?" (Valencia)
"The same thing you're doing. Eating." (Dree)
"But you don't like eating at McDonalds" (Valencia)
"I'm here with Adele. You remember Adele?" (Dree)
"Valencia? My you've grown!" (Adele)
"Hi Miss Adele." (Valencia)
"Introduce us to your friends." (Dree)
Valencia introduces her friends to her mom.
"Nice to meet you ladies. Carry on with your lunch." (Dree)
The ladies resume eating their lunch.
"Now, now. Let's give Ms. Dree her items first." (Adele, pulling Sydney away from the tray)
"I'll share my sundae with you, if you share your fries with me." (Dree)
"My fries." (Sydney)
I guess she's not sharing. I don't blame her.
The ladies settle in and start reminiscing a little about their Chicago days.
Here's a picture of Dree (Color Infusion) and her daughter, Valencia (Prettie Girls). Below are two links to this version of Dree. The first one shows a stunning picture of her after having her hair was washed. She is the same height as my Fashion Royalty dolls. Her feet are huge, and I will have to make her some shoes, but other than that, I'm pretty happy with her.
