Glamerup 18" Doll Clothes Review and Giveaway


Last month, I was contacted by "Glamerup" and offered some of their products for a review and giveaway.

Glamerup is a website specializing in doll clothing and accessories for 18 inch dolls such as American Girl. You can find outfits, necklaces, shoes, and other accessories that fit AG and other similar dolls.

Here are two of the outfits I selected for review. Hayden and Anjali are my models today. ;) 

They can't wait to share their new outfits with you. :)

Anjali is wearing the "Veronica Leaves Print Pajama" set. (You can see it on HERE.) I was happy to add this outfit to my doll clothing collection, because I'm always short on pjs for my dolls. :) 

A back view of the pjs. 

The pj top from the front. 

It has button closure. 

The buttons were very easy to button and unbutton. 

The stitching on the clothing is nice and even.

The bottom of the pj top.

Here are the pj pants.

They have an elastic waistband with no Velcro or buttons.

The pjs are made of a lightweight, cottony material. They are super cute and would be a great addition for any doll lover's collection.

A few shots of Anjali enjoying her new jammies:

Next up, we have the Frozen-inspired "Winter Travel Outfit". (You can see it on HERE.) 

I feel like I should have had Charlie model this dress since she's the closest in coloring to Anna, but Hayden practically begged me to wear it instead. She's a huge Frozen fan, and Anna is her favorite character. ;)

The outfit has several layers. We'll start with the cape.

I liked all of the detail on the cape, such as the lace trim and the little puffy balls hanging from the ends.

The cape has a "frog" closure in the front. 

The frog opens easily... the cape can come off.

The cape from the back. I want to apologize for some of these pictures, including this one. My camera ended up giving the cape more of a salmon color than it really has.

It has a nice layer on the top. 

The hem of the cape. This is closer to the actual color, by the way.

The inside of the cape is lined with a pink, satiny material.

The next layer is the dress. Doesn't it look nice with Hayden's coloring? :)

I thought about finding some boots or shoes for her to wear with this dress, but then I decided I just wanted to focus on the outfit itself. Don't worry, I won't send Hayden off on a snowy quest without providing her with shoes first. ;)

The collar is really cute on the dress. 

A closer look at the bodice. I love the embroidery. One interesting thing about the bodice is that it's actually made with a slightly brown leather-like material. It's especially noticeable in this picture because of the way the camera decided to capture the lighting. When you see it in person, though, it's not noticeably brown.

The skirt of the dress. I like the details and the nice pleating.

The hem of the skirt.

The dress from the back. 

I love the golden trim on the bodice.

The bodice opens with Velcro in the back and is completely separate from the dress underneath.

And speaking of the dress, here it is without the bodice. 

The material is pretty thin, but it doesn't feel flimsy or poorly made. The pleats in the skirt also make the skirt part seem less see-through than it really is.

This would be a great outfit for any Frozen fan. I love all of the nice details on the cape, bodice, and skirt. It's simple enough for a younger collector to use for her dolls, but looks nice enough for a collector to use for display. :)

Here are some extra photos of Hayden in the outfit. :) Because photo shoots are kinda my thing. ;)

And here's one of Hayden and Anjali together: 

I'm quite pleased with the clothing from Glamerup. It's well-made and easy for little hands operate. The pricing is comparable to other good quality handmade doll clothing online. They will be adding more items to their inventory in the coming months, so you'll want to keep checking back for more items. I would definitely recommend Glamerup to other doll lovers and collectors for fun, affordable doll clothing and accessories.

Glamerup was gracious enough to include some items for a giveaway, too. :) Hayden and Anjali are here to show you the goodies. :)

The winner of this giveaway will receive a sweet little summer dress called "Lovely Mariella" and a doll-sized snowflake necklace. 

I didn't want to open the dress so the winner would be the first to open it. You can see the dress on HERE if you'd like a better idea of what it looks like. 

Another shot of the dress.

Here's a look at the adorable necklace. (You can see it on HERE.) 

It has a nice screw together clasp. I love these types of clasps on doll necklaces. A regular necklace clasp can be pretty difficult to open and close on such a small chain.

Here it is free from the card...

...and here's how it looks on a doll. It makes me think of Elsa. :)
