This dress is grey with black leopard print and a dark grey band around the middle. ($28) It is made of a soft, cotton-blend feeling material, which I think is a great material for a casual dress. It has a ruffle in the front that I think makes the dress more interesting than it would be without it, and has hair snagging velcro in the back. It seems to be a great quality dress that will hold up extremely well to play.
It comes with a silver colored headband which has a pink tulle flower with a clear gem in the center on it. The headband also has a super long AG tag on the side of it that I have to cut off because I can't really hide it. Cutting it off isn't a huge pain but I hate having to do it and that it could have been tagged in a more discrete way.
The dress also comes with a pair of black plastic flats, and a square "brave" charm.
Overall I think this dress is adorable, a decent value, and I'm glad I purchased it. My only complaint is the giant headband tag. Grade: A

Although I didn't really care for it when it first came out, I'm now completely in love with this dress.
For $28, you get:
-Dress -Flats -Hair accessory
I'll start off with the shoes. They are super shiny and plastic-y, but in my opinion they are pretty good quality. The heel is flat, so dolls are able to stand normally (unlike the heeled shoes ) The shoes are a grey-ish color and matches the dress perfectly.
The dress is made out of a soft fabric, and the quality is there. The ruffle in the front is what makes the dress, although the ruffle itself is not hemmed. The dress is thin, perfect for the summer. I think it is also the perfect length. If I could, I would probably wear it.

I love animal print, so when I saw this dress, it instantly made its way to the top spot on my outfit wishlist! Let me begin with reviewing the shoes. They are basic, shiny flats, and they are actually a charcoal gray- not black as AG says. I don't think that they look too great paired with this dress (I prefer to pair it with boots instead), but they make for nice, dressy shoes to wear with pants. They fit well, too. Grade: A
The dress: This has to be one of the cutest dresses. It is a nice cheetah print in various shades of gray. The fabric is definitely of good quality- it is not too thin, and it reminds me of many cotton sundresses that I own myself. It fits well, and the ruffle adds cuteness. The ruffle is not as annoying as it appears to be in AG photos. It isn't as large, and it is tacked down on the top so it doesn't stick up. Grade: A+
The headband: The headband is just adorable! I'm not sure if I would pair it with this dress, but it gets a lot of use. I love the pink and silver combination, and it actually looks like something girls today would wear. It did have the long tag, but I just snipped it off. Grade: A

This dress has been on my wish list since it came out, and I'm glad that I finally bought it for my 55, Jamie, today. She looks so sweet in it! The dress itself is easily the best part of the outfit: the print is great and the front detail really makes it. No complaints there. I did have to cut off the headband tag immediately, but without the tag, the headband is perfect. My issue is the shoes. While they will mix and match very nicely, they are fairly tight. I can get them on and off just fine, but when they are on, they fit tightly over the doll's foot, which is not a very attractive look. Still, I see a lot of future use for the whole outfit. I give it an A-.
Love, love, love this outfit! Hands down, one of my favorites that AG has made! It was an impulse purchase at AGP DC in May 2013, and I'm so glad that I threw it in the bag! The dress is incredibly soft and looks amazing on every doll I've put it on! The flats are adorable and versatile, and the headband completes the look perfectly! Can't say enough good things about this outfit! A++

I purchased this in April 2014 when it was on sale for $21. I really like the nice gray color of the dress. Yay for neutrals! The dress itself is a nice material and fits well. The shoes are a dark charcoal gray color and very shiny. The headband is cute too but as others have mentioned it has the ridiculously long tag on it. Overall I'm very happy with this outfit.
I also bought this at the $21 sale price. I'm trying to catch up on reviews! I didn't care for it when it first came out, but in person this is a really cute dress. It's simple and the pattern makes it very different that anything else we own. We lost the headband right after we got this. I really hate that because the headband was cute.
