Review: OG Brighten Up a Rainy Day Outfit

Our Generation Brighten Up a Rainy Day Outfit

I bought a cute new Our Generation outfit for my dolls recently. I’m kind of in love with it and had to do a review (full-length photoshoot coming soon!).

The set is OG’s Brighten Up a Rainy Day Outfit. It’s $18 and comes with four pieces: an umbrella, rain jacket, dress, and rain boots.

The periwinkle babydoll dress is a simple item that cuts off just above the knees. I like how basic it is because it works as a plain sundress, or you can add accessories for a fancier look.

There’s a lace overlay on the bodice, and the dress velcros in the back.

Next up: the raincoat. It’s made of clear vinyl with a coral pink pattern that looks like flower petals to me. I like the pink and blue together, it’s young and vernal.

The jacket closes in the front with two plastic snaps.

Unfortunately, there are no pockets, but the coat does have a hood.

I found it kind of difficult to pull the hood over my doll’s hair. I had to unbutton the jacket and push all her hair over her shoulders, and even then, the hood was a bit tight.

While I did get the hood to fit, I think it would work better on dolls with shorter hair, so you don’t have to try and stuff some of it down the back of the jacket.

I have mixed feelings about the rain boots. They’re made of pale mint green rubber and are quite cute, but I had some problems with them.

They’re too small for American Girls. To get the boots to fit my dolls, I had to cut slits down the backs. Plus, the minty color doesn’t really match anything in the outfit.

Finally, the best part of the outfit: the umbrella!

Here’s the inside of the umbrella. The opening/closing device (idk what it’s actually called) functions just like a real one.

To help the doll hold the umbrella, there are elastic straps on the handle.

When the umbrella is closed, a thin piece of fabric can be wrapped around it and velcroed in place to keep it shut.

I was disappointed that the shoes don’t fit American Girl dolls, and I think there are too many shades of blue, but I do love this outfit. It’s adorable, perfect for spring, and I’m a bit obsessed with the tiny umbrella.

I hope you enjoyed the review! Have a good day, friends. :)

  1. oh my goodness! i got this outfit a while back actually, isn’t it adorable?! I am obsessed with the raincoat! and…i literally did the same thing with the boots when i got them since they were too tight to fit them! great review!

  2. Great outfit and review! Looks great.
    The OG molded boots rarely fit without some type of modification. The t-straps are worse. I haven’t had any issues with fabric shoes, boots with velcro closures, or the molded flats.

  3. It’s a really really cool outfit, but something seems off. It’s probably the fact there’s way too many shades of blue, like you said.
    Also, is the umbrella..waterproof? Is this my chance to take pictures of my dolls in the rain?

    • yeah, i think if there was just one less shade of blue, it would be almost perfect.

      i believe so! it was raining a little while i was taking pictures for this review, and my doll was completely dry.
