This outfit comes with a two-layer leotard, tutu, tights, toe shoes, choker, and earrings. Although I thought the colors were cheesy, the outfit is very pretty when on. The tights snag very easily on the leotard's velcro and the skirt snaps in the back. The skirt only snaps in one place (a second snap only serves to keep the ribbon in place) and easily pops open. I thought this was a defect and returned it, only to face the same problem with a replacement.
The tights are not a very realistic color, but are the same tights AG usually uses. The leotard has lovely edging and the toe shoes are a metallic sheer fabric. The length of the ribbons is adequate. They have a box toe, identical to the Swan Lake outfit's shoes, except in color.
The tutu also does not drape well, instead bunching up in spots. I solved this by storing it with a rubberband around it to keep it pointing downward.

I agree that the color combinations used for this outfit are not exactly the best, but I have to say that I just adore this outfit! I definitely agree with Colette about the tights, but asides from that I really like this outfit for some reason. I adore the toe shoes, the leotard, the tutu, and the choker. I haven't had the ballet outfit on one of my dolls for quite some time, but I agree that there should have been a least and extra snap to hold the tutu on a bit better. Although I have the stage, I think it's a bit lame that the tiara does not come with this set. All in all I definitely give this set and A+! I was just too wonderful to let it pass up!
I am glad that the pointe shoes for this outfit are realistic. I don't like how the new ballet outfit doesn't have ribbons that tie like these. The colors being unrealistic annoys me, but overall I like this.
I like the colors and everything about this outfit! Though I agree, the tights snag on the leotard and mine have a huge kneehole. but A+. I just use white tights with it now. Makes it less purple and a little nicer.
This is a gorgeous tutu...I love everything but the lavender tights and purple metallic toe shoes. Neither seem very realistic to me...colored tights aren't likely worn in recitals and en pointe by age 10? That is a bit of a stretch!

Does anyone have a close up of her pointe shoes?

This is my favorite outfit! Maybe I'm baised because I love purple, but I love every piece of it. The tutu is stunning (maybe a bit too delicate for young girls though). The leotard is hard to get on, but it's very pretty. This outfit is stunning on Marisol. I think here medium colored skin is perfect for the dark purple in this outfit. I think this outfit is an A+!
