As with each AGT/JLY meet outfit accessories, the I Like Your Style accessories come with some standard items. I'm going to list them all anyway, along with the other pieces.
$5 in single bills Pink and Purple Library Card Blue Cloth Shoulder Bag (drawsting closure) 2 Purple Hair Elastics w/ Pink Plastic Bobbles Coconut/AG KeyChain for Bag
It's about $20, iirc.
The hair elastics are almost identical to the ones that come with the ILYS outfit (or the ones on the doll - my #28 had two in her hair), but in a pinkish shade with the pink plastic square bobbles. They're pretty cute, though! I love the color against the brown of Beatrice's hair.
The keychain is really tiny, doll sized, and the bag is a lot smaller than I expected. I thought it would be a larger, tote-styled bag rather than a shoulder bag. It barely fits the money and library card, but it rather sweet. It's a nice, sturdy cotton weave in periwinkle with a lavender drawstring.
Honestly, I don't think this is worth $20. If they included the cute slip on shoes that match the outfit, I would be all for it. Or if they included a hat or tights or something. As it is, I'm willing to pay $10 for the set, especially since the bag is much smaller than I had thought, and I can get similar hair elastics at Target or Wal-Mart.
Overall grade: C.
I've finally got a photo of the accessories! Now you can see them without the optimal lighting and arrangement by the AG folks:
I'm still not keen on these at all. So many other playthings have so much more play value, and the little elastics you can find at Wal-Mart or CVS or wherever easily.

I do not like the hair elastics. They are too tight. I was not able to easily put Elise's hair in them.
Otherwise, I like it. The purse is roomy enough to contain everything. The magazine can be folded to fit inside the purse AND I can read the text. The keychain, dollars, and library card are all good additions that are accurate to what Elise (ie- I) would carry.
Overall I give it a B. I would give it the A if the elastics were easier to use.
