There is nothing that drives me bananas than to see an Our Generation outfit online and pass on it, only to decide I want it–and then it’s sold out. Such has been the case for quite some time with the Fun Fur Fall outfit. I recently noticed it was available on the Target website again, and we just happened to have a trip out of town for a family event. We had a little time to kill so we stopped at the nearby Target, and I finally got my hands on this outfit. YES!!!
This was one of the easier outfits I’ve had to get out of the package. A few snips of a couple of strings on the top made it possible to pull most everything loose and get at the remaining strings. For once I didn’t have to tear the packaging to shreds to get at tape and plastic tabs!
Here it is on a doll. And in case you are wondering, yes the vest is crooked. I did that on purpose. It’s not the vest itself that is crooked but whoever sewed on the Velcro didn’t line it up properly. Grrr… It doesn’t make it impossible to close, but you would think that they would be a little more careful!
We will start with the boots. I actually thought these weren’t too bad, and they went on the doll easily. Getting them off wasn’t too bad either, I know of times where I’ve felt as though I would need a crowbar to get OG boots off an American Girl doll. I will keep these, they would be great for times when I want to take a doll out in actual snow for a photo shoot and I won’t have to worry about something getting ruined.
The vest is adorable and the main reason I wanted this outfit. Other than the Velcro issue, it’s actually very nice and fits the doll perfectly. I love the faux fur trip on the collar too, I think it’s a nice added touch. I love the color of this vest too, I’m glad it’s not some weird color. Many years ago I had a vest in about this shade.
The shirt is cute. I’m not wild about the sleeves not being longer though seeing as this is more of a cold weather outfit. At least I can pair it with other things. When I got it out of the package I wasn’t sure how well it was going to fit, but it actually fits well.
The pants…what in the world were they thinking? Silver???? I am definitely not a fan of these, and especially not with this outfit. I’m not sure what I’ll use them for, but I would much rather pair the other items with anything but these. This is one of my biggest issues with OG clothing, some of the color combinations/selections are absolutely bizarre!!
Overall, I would give this outfit a B+, taking points off for the misaligned Velcro and the weird pants. I luckily got it on sale for $10.99. I am still very happy I found it though, the top and the vest will get a lot of use around here.
