We have it and like it! The shoes are so cute. Love the little heart necklace and mini Valentine it comes with. The dress I like as far as color and pattern, but my complaint with is the wideness of the neckline. With it more of a tie shoulder sundress style, it just exposes too much of the body/neck area on the doll and looks a bit funny.
Here's McKenna in it. You can see the wide angle of the neckline. The straps literally are where the arm and body meet.

WHen I bought it I just grabbed a box without looking inside first. When I finally opened the box at home one of the bows was just barely attached and fell off in my hand. Cute dress and love the shoes and necklace but I recommend checking it first if you can.
I was at AG Kansas City the day after Christmas, and they had the "new" stuff out already. The Pretty Party Outfit was on a doll that was not in a case, so I felt it to see how it was. Honestly, I don't think it's worth the money, seeing it close up. It's VERY thin, and not very good quality either. I passed on it without regrets. OH and the necklace is so cheap, it's like something you would get from Oriental Trading.
I've really wanted this outfit since it first came out. The neckline doesn't bother me. I wanted to use the necklace as a choker, but it tends to get caught up in the doll's neck seam if I put it on too tight. I love the color, especially with Marisol's skin tone. It looks like something a young girl would actually wear.
My dolls: Elena (grey-eyed Elizabeth), Marissa (Marisol), & Lucy (Jess).
