I don’t usually pay a lot of attention to Our Generation doll items because I can never find them at Target, nor are they always available for shipment. We were at a Target on vacation (ironically about 10 miles from American Girl headquarters) and I happened upon the “Perfect Strike” outfit.
I was less interested in the bowling theme than getting a nice, casual outfit that I knew would get used a lot. We can always use some pants, because lately it seems AG outfits only come with short skirts.
Julie is here to model the outfit today.
The jacket easily fit over a t-shirt and the arm cuff was wide enough to clear Julie’s fingers and hand. It has a real zipper and the peach knit fabric has a lace/mesh overlay that must be very on-trend because some of the new TrulyMe separates coming out in January also feature it. The lace on the front of the jacket is delicate and should be kept far away from other clothes with Velcro.
Bowling shoes! So cute. These OG shoes fit well, and if I could find Julie’s pompom socks, I think there would be room for them. The shoes are made of a flexible plastic and the tan portion has peach glitter flecks mixed in.
The bowling ball has three finger holes, allowing the ball to stay on Julie’s thumb. It is possible the other two finger holes might align with an Our Generation doll hand. I appreciate that the bowling ball actually can be used – some of the American Girl sports balls aren’t really functional because the doll can’t hold them.
This set was 12.99 – I felt I got a lot of value for that small amount of money! I think it’s a good look for our California girl.
