Journey Girls Dana in a New Peplum Outfit
While we all await the release of the new Journey Girls, we can enjoy the recently released outfits. One of the outfits that was released was the "Tiered Peplum Top and Printed Legging Set - Blue color". (These names are super thoughtful!) The outfit comes with a bright blue (hence the name) tiered blouse, black and white pants, a yellow and white bag, a daisy headband, and the Journey Girls dress shoes (with brand new fabric bows!)
Toys R Us heard you complaints about the many plastic shoes that come with all of their outfits. So they put the same plastic shoes in this set...but they put a fabric bow on the top! Whoa! Totally awesome shoe now!
All ratings are out of 10
Value 8 – A good value, with one more accessory than the pink and white outfit released at the same time as this one, the peplum outfit could do with just a little more. Better shoes would be a great start!
Fitment 8 – The pants fit perfectly on Dana. The top is loose, which is not usually the case with a peplum tops. The extra room makes the top look baggy rather than flowy. The shoes and headband fit great, but as mentioned before, the bag could have benefited from longer straps.
Versatility 9 – This is a great outfit to share pieces with other outfits. The top looks great with white pants or even light jeans. The pants will go with almost any solid top. The headband may be a difficult sell on some outfits, but it's so stinking cute, you'll want to figure out a way to make it work!
Cuteness 8 – Cute outfit. Not amazing, but better than the London T-shirt outfits by a long shot. The pants are awesome. The top is okay.
Overall 8 – A solid outfit that will add some great pieces to your collection. The pants and headband are unique and cute. The top is cute, it's just not outstanding. This is another great outfit to pick up when Toys R Us has a sale. Again, ditch the shoes and find some other cute ones!
AG note - One reader asked that I comment on the fitment of the Journey Girls outfits on American Girl dolls (thanks Catherine!). I like this idea, so new reviews will have this added note in which I will mention how the outfit fits AG dolls.
The peplum top fits an American Girl doll, but it is snug around the neck. It fits, but just barely. The pants are form fitting on Dana, and even though they stretch there is no way they will fit on an American Girl doll. This is not a great outfit for AG dolls.
