This outfit is my sister's, but I shamelessly borrow it all the time.
Overall, the two things I love about this outfit are it is largely realistic, and it's red
Sweater - love it. The material is so thick and soft and every time I put the sweater on a doll I always find myself thinking that she must be so cozy and warm! I like the embroidery detail and neckline. Grade: A
Vest - I love how this is so "real"! I know tons of people who have puffy vests like this. The fur is a fun, young addition that doesn't seem unrealistic either. I also like that it has a hood. I could've done without the ski place logo but hey, it's AG and they like logos. I also like that a ski tag is attached. Around 4th and 5th grade (Nicki's age) it was really "cool" to come back to school after a weekend with a new ski tag attached to your coat. Grade: A
Pants - Again, very realistic! They look and FEEL like real snowpants or ski pants. In this way they are kind-of a niche item (not really useful for mix and match) but items like that are fun too. The detailing on the bottom isn't too obnoxious - I actually like it. Grade: A
Mittens - I don't want to repeat myself but they look and feel like real mittens. I'm not a huge fan of the colors though. They are a coral/orangeish color (similar to the detailing on the sweater and pants) and brown. It's not a bad color combo but doesn't exactly match the rest of the outfit. I think if they had used white instead of brown, it would have tied into the rest of the outfit more. Grade: B+
Shoes - I think these are supposed to be like the knit Uggs. Or I am telling myself that. I think they are cute, and perhaps just thick socks you would wear under ski boots? This is the only part of the outfit that might be unrealistic. But, I like them. Grade: A-
Overall Grade: A
Outfit minus shoes/slippers/socks and mittens.
Close-up - love the pattern on the vest!
Just the sweater.
