I realy like this outfit. As a christmas gift I was realy happy to get this one and I just love it. I have a red plaid skirt very simmilar to the pink one that comes with this outfit. The jacket is soooooo cute and I love the little buttons and the embordery. The shoes are just adorable but I doo wish the outfit came with some little white or pink ankle socks. I mean as stylish as the shoes are I still think that most girls where socks with their tennis shoes. I was most impressed with the fact that the t-shirt was longsleeved. Knowing Mattel I would think they would just make a short sleeved tee with this set, figure no one whould notice with it being modled under the jacket and save the money on the faberic. The barretts are nice but I had thought that each one was a different shade of pink from looking in the magazine....oh well. While I would rather the outfit come with a doll sized book along with the rest of the newer JLY outfits I still like the book and think it is good that AG is trying to get girls to read. I give this set and A-, dont get me wrong it is one of my favorits but I realy wish it had come with some socks.
