I have had my Julie for about 2 years now and she is gorgeous. Her eye/hair combination is very pretty. I cannot get over her silky, long blonde hair which is easy to style and stunning. I removed her braid and because that section of hair was kinky, I used a flat iron on a low temperature on it and it's now just as smooth and straight as the rest of her hair. I have chosen to keep my Julie historical but I'm sure she'd look good more modern, too. Overall, a lovely, photogenic doll.

Julie is BEUTIFUL and I love her meet outfit, especially with the pants and shoes from the true style outfit. I love doing her hair, and have had no problems with chinky braids (though her hair was only in it for 2 days, it got messy quickly)

I know I have mentioned this before but I need to tell it again. I had been collecting Julie's clothes and accessories for awhile but I really didn't want Julie (or so I thought). Two years ago for our anniversary my (late) DH gifted me with Julie and I fell in love with her. DH made it so much fun because I would set the dolls up with their pets, toys, etc. and if I left the room...I would return to find everything switched around...LOL! The funniest thing was when I walked into our great room to find a human sized banana in Julie's bike basket...LOL! DH nicknamed her "Trouble" because he always claimed he had nothing to do with switching things around or the banana incident...LOL! I love her so much. DH pierced her ears for me in early 2011 and I added somelight freckles. ETA Photos:

Julie took me by complete surprise! I recently obtained her used from a board member with the intention of creating a boy custom but when she arrived she was so groovy that I had to think twice about her "operation". Love the face mold/hair/eye combo and the meet outfit has high mix & match potential. The embroidered top is a bit transparent but it could be used as sleepwear. Julie gets a solid A.

Julie is a great doll! I got her at AGPDC this summer. Lets start with her eyes! She has beautiful brown eyes that look divine with her blond hair. Her hair has such a beautiful shine to it and is the perfect length but can be very hard to style at times. My biggest complain about Julie is that her hair sheads so much! Whenever I brush it some hair falls out. I am afraid to brush it to much. In other reviews people have not had this problem. I have only noticed this in the newer dolls. My good friend also has an older julie and the texture is a lot different. Overall she is a great doll dispite the hair problem.
My Julie arrived about a week ago. I had wanted Julie for a while but some how other dolls kept cutting in line in front of her. Since I grew up in the 70s I finally added her to my collection. She really is a gorgeous doll. Her hair is so silky and I love her big, brown eyes. Her meet outfit really reflects fashion as I remember it in the 70s. In fact I had a gauze shirt similar to the one she's wearing when I was growing up.

I never really did take much notice in the Julie and Ivy collection when I was younger because I thought she just looked like every other doll. Now I know how wrong I was. She is so gorgeous! Shes very photogenic and she just looks fabulous in anything I put on her! I especially like her in the Sweet Peach Glasses and pastel colors! Her hair is long and silky, though she is my second doll and the first doll I had with long hair, so Abby's hair is a little bit frizzy at the ends, but I am working on fixing it xD. The braid was a problem at first. I didn't keep it in for more than an hour after getting her. It was very bothersome and for my doll, the braid was practically hanging in the middle of her face! Taking it out it became wavy (like i expected) and it looked very awkward next to her long, silky straight hair. Eventually it started to fade, but to top it off, I did end up straightening her hair. Her eyes are dark brown and they are in the pinwheel form. I love the combination of blonde hair and brown eyes, so i was very happy when I saw her stunning brown eyes. The outfit is really well made! The blouse is adorable and I love it so much, the braided belt is very cute and really makes the top look even more fantastic. The pants I was iffy about, but I get that AG was trying to give her a 70's look the shoes are so cute and I still use them! The book is very inspiring and extremely well written! I love her relationship with Ivy and I can relate to moving away and missing your old friends, but also making new ones
the doll herself earned an A+! The meet outfit just got an A. Her book got an A+!
Overall, I give her an A- because of some hair issues I've had.
I recommend her to anyone from the ages 9+, not very good for younger collectors because of her extremely long hair
