PWP Vacation Outfit G1102-CF1A $15.00 Grade: A- (minus due to reported staining of shorts)
This adorable PWP outfit comes with a pair of denim shorts, a white t-shirt, a multi-colored belt, and a pair of sandals. It is the source of the mysterious blue shorts pictured with Lanie's white girl/doll tee set. In my experience, everything fits well. However, there are reports of the blue denim shorts staining dolls' legs.
The t-shirt is white with a tropical island scene surrounded by butterflies and flowers.
The shoes are slip-on sandals with light blue/green grosgrain ribbons. They do have those handy little clear straps that hold the shoes on the doll.
All in all, it's a cute set and definitely more versatile than some of the heavily pink PWPs released in the past.
I was able to get this outfit off eBay for about the price in the store. I think it is a good value. But I would only rate it a B overall.
The shirt is nice. I like that it is embroidered, which means it will last longer. However, my girls have only worn the shirt once and I notice the stitching is coming apart on the front collar seam. I can fix it but that is disappointing to me.
I have not used the shorts yet. I love that they are denim but I am not crazy about the belt.
I LOVE the sandals. These sandals are the whole reason why I wanted this outfit. They match Kailey's Meet Dress perfectly!!!! I love the buckle detail. They are something I would buy for me. Very cute.
Overall it is not bad outfit. If I came across another at a great price, I would buy a second one.
We have had this outfit for a while but haven't used the shorts much due to the unseasonably cold temps (snow again today). The shirt is wonderful and pairs well with jeans. The colors in the belt match the pink and blue design it yourself tees exclusive to the AG stores. The sandals are cute and go well with jeans as well. Overall I would rate it an A. Here is a picture of Jordyn in the outfit.
I have mixed feelings about this outfit. I think the embroidery on the shirt is reminiscent of something one would find in the Norton McNaughton section of the misses department. I'm not dissing that, but it seems a bit much for a 10 year old to wear. The colors are pretty enough but really, I think I'd prefer a screenprint and some glitter for age-appropriate authenticity (I can't believe I just wished for glitter).
Plus I call fit issues: the shirt we have here is best suited for the slimmest of dolls. Shown below on an average-girth 2007ish era doll, and you can see how it doesn't quite close in the back. So there's really no option but to tuck it in, lest you're asking for a wardrobe malfunction. The neckline seems a bit wider than it needs to be, too.
I guess you get what you pay for.
The rest of the outfit is terrifically well made, though, with some nice details.
