I picked up this dress for another board member, but she kindly allowed me to try it on my doll since I was hesitant about it. I've decided that I do really like it! The dress is adorable! I love the detail of the cuffs and collar! The dress and leggings are a nice, soft cotton, and the shoes are pleather. The dress and pants went on easily, but the shoes were a bit of a challenge. The heels wanted to fold under the doll's heel when I tried to put them on. I finally used a plastic spoon as shoe horn to get them on Katia. They are cute shoes though, and the material is fine for pleather. Overall, I like the set and will eventually pick one up for myself. Grade: A- (for the shoes).
I would recommend that anyone buying this in the stores open the box and check out the skirt. As you can see above, Aaryana's skirt has diagonal stripes and dragonflybg's has horizontal stripes. AG's stock picture has horizontal, so I guess that's what it's supposed to be, but I prefer the look of the diagonal. However, I just opened mine up to find sort of in-between stripes that just don't look quite right. I may bring it back for an exchange, but I thought I'd warn people.
This is one of my favorite outfits. I prefer it on darker haired dolls than dolls with lighter hair. My #41, Shelby is modeling this outfit, and she looks really cute in it. I had to take these photos outside because the lighting in my room was really funky.
This is an over view of the outfit. It came with a purple sweater dress, lavender(?) leggings, and lavender(?) flats.
This is a view up close on the button detailing. It adds a bit of character to the outfit and I think its adorable.
This is a view up close to the Innerstar U decal. I think they could've done without this.
In the final picture, I have the shoes removed. I like the ruffle look, but I think it would've been better if they would've made regular normal flats. That would've made the piece more versatile.
My overall grade to this outfit would be an A-. It's very cute, but they could've definitely done without a few things.
