UPDATED WITH A WINNER!! Congratulations Princess P’s Mom! Please check your inbox.
Do you know what makes me happy? I mean really happy? Seeing the absolute unfiltered, true joy that dolls bring little girls! When Our Generation told me they were debuting a line of outfits for girls and their 18″ dolls I knew they would be good. At first I was a little sad – my own girls are too old (and too tall) to wear the Our Generation Me & You matching outfits for girls and dolls – but then when the package for review arrived, I couldn’t wait to share the fun with our friend’s little girl. Meet Hailey – one very silly, spunky, sweet, almost 5 year old who gives out “attack hugs” (as in you never know when you will be attacked and smothered in a genuinely happy bear hug)! Hailey is our model for today.
There are six different Our Generation Me & You sets currently available. You can buy them at Target stores for $29.99 and they come in sizes 4, 5, 6 and 6x. I know there are quite a few of our readers who would love it if they would extend those sizes to at least a size 10, but for now, they are just available in the four different sizes. The outfits we received for review are a brown and cream set that has a striped turtleneck, fuzzy vest and brown tiered skirt; a pink and white polka dot sleeveless dress and a brightly striped strappy sleeveless dress. (see all six outfits here)
Hailey came over a few Sundays ago to play dolls and to be our dress model. She was pretty shy at first but once she found the drawer of doll shoes and picked out shoes to go with the outfits she was definitely having fun!
Our Generation sent us the size 5 outfits and according to Hailey’s Mom, she wears a size 5. I would say that the OG size 5 was a generous cut and Hailey will probably get a few years of wear out of them. The first dress that Hailey and Ruthie tried on was a striped sundress in orange, pink and red. I was really impressed with the quality of fabric that OG chose for both the girl and doll version of this dress.
This next outfit is my favorite!! The vest is SO soft and fuzzy! It was raining on the day we did the photos and this outfit just seemed perfect for the season. All Hailey needed was a pair of tights and some brown boots and the outfit would be even cuter (ok, that might not be possible). Hailey decided that Callie needed to wear the sparkly pink high tops from The Queen’s Treasures – and I agree – perfect!
The pink polka dot dress was Hailey’s Mom’s favorite! Hailey brought her doll, Caroline, and you can just see how much fun these two have had together.
There is a layer of tulle under both skirts for a little extra detail. Something tells me Hailey will get lots and lots of wear out of this dress!
Natalie was our photographer and she must have taken more than 50 photos of Hailey. The expressions on her face just crack me up and you can see that she really had a lot of fun with the dolls.
So now for the fun part! One lucky Doll Diaries reader will win three Me & You outfits from Our Generation in the size of their choice AND they winner will also get an Our Generation 18″ doll. Which one? It will be a surprise! This is a giveaway worth more than $100!
