So yes, I finally got Julie/Rose, but since no one had done a review of the meet outfit piece for piece yet, I think I'll start a new one, so just the doll here. (mod edit to remove broken image)
Here she is. I have a new camera, but I need to work on perspective, I see. ~_~ Personally, I like the contrast of dark eyes with light hair, but I also admit if it weren't for who I was turning her into, I probably wouldn't. I think the combination makes her look sunny and cheerful, though. Her eyes are the light brown pinwheel type, rather than dark brown like my #28's. I also love this face mold and I'm glad it's getting more use. One thing I'll note that surprised me was for a Mattel doll, mine's body is unusually soft and squishy.
Her hair. As people have mentioned, it's platinum blonde and very soft. I like how it slips through my fingers like water, and I even like the color, but I admit it looks more like it came from a bottle than from nature (and I say this as a person who was a platinum blonde child). But I like it myself, although I can tell I am going to fuss over it endlessly.
This was taken right after taking out the braid, without brushing it or anything, so you can see how kinked up the hair becomes from the braid. It's pretty wavy, but not as bad as I thought.

How I have her now. I think she makes a very sweet, mature looking modern girl, not just a throwback to the '70s myself. I am not good at playing with hair, but hers was pretty easy to manage, even with the kinks from the little braid. I'm giving her an A from my end. Boring, but she's won me over.
