I really like this outfit, and I'm glad I have it. It looks fantastic on the girls with darker hair, and the red is such a nice, cheery shade. My Jess is currently wearing it (even though she isn't Chinese- it just looks pretty on her), and I can't seem to take it off her.
The dress fits the dolls well. My only issue is that the velcro snags the material. I get much use out of the hair clip, too, and I've found it looks good with many other outfits as well. The shoes are basic black Mary Jane flats that have a velcro strap/faux buckle. These are very versatile, and they work well as dress shoes with other dressy outfits. I've actually found that I do not like them with Ivy's New Year outfit. Instead, I like to pair the gold slippers from Elizabeth's holiday gown with this outfit instead.
Overall, I'm please. I have no complaints other than the velcro.
