*REVIEW* Gabriela's Sparkling Sequins Outfit

I am just enjoying it as a doll outfit, not as a collectible or something that will hold its value. American Girl did a very nice job on this outfit, despite sewing the plastic shoes holder to it and sewing other parts of it to the cardboard. I bought this because I liked it the best of Gabby's collection.

My 2017 view of certain American Girl purchases is that they are to be enjoyed now and passed on to the next generation if cared for properly.

I will be more discerning with how I spend my money at AG.

Cute non-tap shoes.

I read that the collection will be in Toys r Us store in March.

The v necked sequined top is lovely.

Pants pull on.



  1. This outfit is on my wishlist. Was the headband difficult to get on? It is a beautiful outfit. I cannot wait to find a good one.

  2. I am glad you like it. The headband was very easy to put on.I think you will like it when you get it. Madelon

  3. I agree with you, this is one of Gabriela's nicest outfits, I would get it if I truly wanted it, but every year I say I'll get GOTY stuff I never do.

  4. It would look a whole lot better if AG had made it to cover where the arm vinyl meets the cloth. Distracting and ugly there and if the top had been cut just a little differently, it would look much better

  5. The top and shoes are really cute!

  6. are the sequins on the back as well?

    1. No. sequins are only on the front. Madelon

  7. How cool would it have been if both of her gloves were covered with sequins! She could recreate Motown 25 with Melody as the guest of honor singing Someday We'll be Together...hopefully not in the 50% off section at Kohls. Seriously though, sequins on the gloves would have made it even more awesome. Thank you for reviewing.
