I ordered this outfit with Jess in mind. I think it will be perfect for her. It's a great value at $24 (dress, shoes, headband, bracelet, book), especially with free shipping. It's really adorable too. I highly recommend. I think it's very well put together by having the matching bracelet and headband with shoes that picks up the same pattern from the dress, etc.

This dress is great quality, and lots of value for your money! When I saw it was sold out online until July due to high demand, I called my PS right away to snag me one from the AG store. It was well worth the $24 and shipping. The headband is great, perfectly sized. I don't feel like I am going to leave permanent indents on the doll's head like I do with some other AG headbands. The shoes are cute, and have an elastic band in back to help them stay on...however, I think even with that there is a good chance the shoes could get lost with active play or when traveling. The little bracelet is a fun extra...I expected it to be elastic, but it actually has a tiny clasp. Here's some pics of Marisol in her new dress:

ETA I also love the contrast between the headband and dress...the headband is a leopard print while the dress is zebra print, but they work together beautifully.
This outfit hits every point: well-constructed, easy for kids to manipulate on their dolls, fashion forward with its animal print motif, and reasonably priced with lots of little extras for the $24 retail. For those who don't like the purple bow accent, rest assured that it can be easily snipped. I think my favorite part is the little pocket. The headband in contrasting purple-accented leopard spots is ace...but it looks better than it lasts. Made of cheap plastic, it snapped even with careful adult use.
An A- grade, dropped due to headband breakage. This style certainly may not hold up ten years from now, but it's an iconic look for target-market aged girls in 2010.
A few more photos to add to the mix:
Note that this outfit was repackaged when AG switched from book to charms after InnerstarU debuted in July 2010, but the outfit itself didn't change. It retired in late December 2011.
I love this out fit as well. I only had one problem with the headband, when I was trying to get it on my doll it slipped out of my had retrackted and made a huge black line right under my #3's eye . I cryed while scrubbing it with a face cloth and water and my over-dramatic tears got it out. Just a warning to be careful. Other than that the dress is awesome! I love the cute pocket at the side, Mari puts all her maps when exploring in it and it's quite roomy. the braclet is very cute and the sandals are cute too. overall an A+!

This outfit is very cute and looks good on all my dolls. The dress is made very well and I am just in love with the pocket. I like the bow they added because it tones down the zebra print a little. The shoes fit well and are made well . The purple on the shoes really goes well with the other accents. The headband looks small but when you put it on the doll it fits perfect. The bracelet is made with a clasp like a real braclet and the beads are cute. I give this an A+ and it is a steal at $24.

This outfit is just so pretty and cool. Actually, I didn't like it the first time I saw it. I thought it was something a retired lady from hawaii would wear; not a little girl. But then I started to see the most important brands in the mall releasing zebra printed outfits for girls. That's when I began to consider it and when I went ahead and bought it: I didn't regret it.
It's very trendy and comes with accesories! A headband and a bracelet...and the sandals are incredibly cute.

The dress is cute. I especially like it on Natalie, my #28. The dress and headband are both easy to use and I like how the pattern is also used on the shoes. It would make more sense to use a zebra pattern on the headband though.

This outfit is very cute and well worth the $24 dollars I paid for it. Jess has claimed it and she looks lovely in it.
I do not have not pictures of the headband because I found it was to small to go on the dolls head properly.
The dress is made of nice cotton knit fabric and it feels very soft and comfortable. It has a nice purple bow on the left side and it really ties in the purple theme throughout the outfit. It also has a small pocket on the skirt which is adorable.
The bracelet is nice and has a clasp closure. I had no trouble putting the bracelet on and I'm sure a child could put it on easily.
The shoes are very cute and go with the outfit well. They used the same zebra print fabric and purple fabric that they used for the dress and the bow. The band that goes between the dolls big toe and second toe is cord and not elastic like I originally thought. The shoes have a clear elastic strap on the back of the shoe to keep them on and I haven't had any issues with them falling off.
Overall this outfit gets an A+! I would highly recommend it to anyone.
