I didn't like it enough in the store to get it, but the store did have grey (silvery) leggings with it, only $5 or $6 and paired with the summer set (bad fitting headband, pink sunglasses and sneaks) it was cute. I liked it with the store tee shirts, they have the silvery grey stars and the store location on them.... So if you try to phone order it, I would ask about the leggings. I felt they were a good mix-n-match basic for the $.
AG advertises this dress as being "berry"-colored, and you can see from Ceridwen's modeling of it with last year's holiday tights and shoes that it really is a bit more pink than the shoes. I think the design of the dress is cute, but it's rather difficult to know what to pair it with. It looks like a beach cover-up to me, and the lightweight knit reinforces that, but the red and silver color scheme makes it look better suited to colder weather. I haven't tried it with skinny jeans or dark leggings, but I'm thinking both of those would be cute.
I think the dress is a true bright red not like the berry red of the Photographer;s jacket and other berry colored things that AG is selling in their souvenir ship. The silvery embroidery makes one want to make it a festive dress, but the material is truly T-shirt. It does look cute with leggings and a shell with the zipper down a bit. I pulled the waist tie a bit tighter to give it more shape. It's truly a cute outfit. The tie which is enclosed within the waistline of the dress give it a tshirt waist look and shape. The ruffles add a sweet touch. But it is truly a simple casual outfit with that zip front. I don't see it as a beach cover though it could serve as one; it would go with that ruffled two piece outfit that was on sale on Cyber Monday. But it isn't so roomy to scream housecoat, bathrobe or beach cover. I bought it though I don't think it was worth the $16 price tag. It would look cut with leggings, or on its own. It has a lot of mix and match potential with other AG store items. I have it on my doll with red shoes and head band that were in the summer set, and a pair of white tights.

Before I saw this dress in person, I didn't care too much for it. However, as soon as I saw it paired with the Sporty Tankini and the beach set at AGP, I changed my mind! It looks adorable as a swimsuit cover-up. Grade: A+
