The dress is one of the most beautiful and highest quality I have ever seen. I have never worn a gold dress, so I had no clue how it would end up looking on Elise (JLY 25). But it turned out to be STUNNING on her. On Inga not so much- but it is still beautiful. And it works well on girls of many ages, plus I can imagine it will not go out of fashion for a long time.
The shoes are very nice. They go so well with the dress.
The tights seem to be better quality than the usual AG ones- plus they match this dress quite well.
The necklace is gorgeous and has extra detailing on front- not just the pearls. Plus it attaches with a magnet- which makes it very easy for young girls to put it on their dolls.
The hair clips may seem cheaper than what the outfit would merit at first. But they hold the doll's hair well. And I am glad they are present- without them, the outfit would look too grown-up for a tween.
The earrings are re-usable. Elise and Inga are wearing them with other formal outfits at the moment.
One of the best holiday dresses ever. Works for other elegant occassions, since nothing in it screams "winter holidays" blatantly.
