The jacket has real buttons, and the colors are all so pretty. The two toned tennies are just what a girl would wear to school, and the two barrettes are so cute! I LOVE it!!!! The outfit is even prettier in person than it is in the online pictures!!!!
I give this outfit a solid A. It is just adorable! The jacket does have real buttons. The flower design on the t-shirt is really pretty, and the plaid skirt is very cute. The tennis shoes are very stylish right now and go on very easily. All the fabrics feel very nice, and the best part is that it fits very well. The cutest part of the outfit have to be the barrettes though! They really snap and so far seem very sturdy. AG did a great job with this one.
There is only one word that can describe this outfit: adorable! This is such a great set, I can't say anything else but that. I color combinations are awesome, and there is not one part of the set that I dislike. I have no other choice but to give this outfit an A+++!
I realy like this outfit. As a christmas gift I was realy happy to get this one and I just love it. I have a red plaid skirt very simmilar to the pink one that comes with this outfit. The jacket is soooooo cute and I love the little buttons and the embordery. The shoes are just adorable but I doo wish the outfit came with some little white or pink ankle socks. I mean as stylish as the shoes are I still think that most girls where socks with their tennis shoes. I was most impressed with the fact that the t-shirt was longsleeved. Knowing Mattel I would think they would just make a short sleeved tee with this set, figure no one whould notice with it being modled under the jacket and save the money on the faberic. The barretts are nice but I had thought that each one was a different shade of pink from looking in the magazine....oh well. While I would rather the outfit come with a doll sized book along with the rest of the newer JLY outfits I still like the book and think it is good that AG is trying to get girls to read. I give this set and A-, dont get me wrong it is one of my favorits but I realy wish it had come with some socks.
I have to give this outfit an A as well. I like it even better than what I thought I would. All the pieces are well built. The colors match well. The barrettes grab hair well. I do not like the jacket being so short, but this is not a big complaint. I was not planning on using it for this character- but with different shoes and socks it worked out just ideally.
The shirt is a little snug, but not too much. I couldn't imagine it fitting PM girls, but it does fine for Mattel dolls. The skirt is too cute; it kind of reminds me of uniform clothes, only its pink instead of green and blue. The jacket is very nice, although the real buttons seem slightly loose. I figure for an adult collector it's just fine, though I don't know how they'd hold up to a child. I don't know if this is normal or if the one I got just happened to be loose.
Overall I give it an A, because of the slightly loose buttons and the shirt is slightly snug. I also wish there were socks with the shoes.

I like this outfit better than I thought I would. I mainly bought it for just the skirt and jacket, but I can see some usage coming out of the shirt and shoes.
The outfit is cute as a whole, but I'm not sure I like the shoes with this particular outfit. Maybe a different pair of shoes, or a pair of boots would be cute. I'm a little surprised that this outfit had sneakers instead of boots, what with AG's 2006-2007 trends... :x
My one real nitpick of this outfit is that the skirt I got seems to be a tiny bit big in the waist for my dolls, who all have a waist measurement of 11".
Other than that, I give this outfit an A.

What can I say? It's mix-and-match heaven for a girl who is a mix and match addict ;D
The shirt will go with anything that has pink in it, or jeans, or even any other pastel colours. I recommend: -the Sightseeing Outfit tweed skirt -any jeans, preferably plain or faded
The jacket goes with pretty much any tee--whether it's dark, pastel, or bright. Heck, it even goes with the 1996 AGOT Meet outfit Tee! And makes said tee look halfway nice!! Which means that it gets a grade so high that it hasn't been invented yet
Sneakers--I love these things! They are totally what a real girl would wear and go with almost anything.
Skirt--A nice soft plaid--a real weave and not a print. It goes with pink things, but it also works well with a black tee and knee socks for a punk outfit!
Hairclips--They are OK. Not anything special; not anything unusual.
A+! This outfit is the best mix and match set I have ever come across. The shirt looks really good with jeans (although it is made of a kind of flimsy material). The jacket is just ADORABLE!!! I love the buttons. And the skirt is one of the few skirts I like on dolls. It's definitely a good piece for a punk doll. The skirt is also really soft and fuzzy. It looks like it might be susceptible to pill after several years, but I love the soft material so much. As far as I'm concerned, if you have a modern doll, you should be REQUIRED to get this outfit.
One more thing: the hair clips aren't that great. For awhile, I was in love with them because of the realistic barrette look of them and the soft coral color.
...And then I tried to put them on a doll. The barrettes will barely hold ten strands of hair. I tried to wedge in some more of Mia's hair, and the clasp bent a little.
Nicki Fleming is wearing the outfit right now, and I have to say I really love it. The skirt is one of my favourite pieces, and the sneakers are mega cute. The barreetes stay in Nicki's hair well, andthe pattern on the tee is great. I adore the teeny silver buttons on the coat, that button up and actually have 5-point stars on them. However, I have two problems. One, and the main one, is that the tee is a little short. The bottom rolls up, and doesn't quite cover all her stomach. The other problem is that two buttons fell off. This happened about 14 months after I first got the oufit. They were sewn on well, but I used the jacket often, and after too much use the thread began to break.
I give the product a A. It is a wonderful item, but I wouldn't recommend it for young children, as the buttons are too fiddly and delicate.
I just got this outfit for Christmas and I love everything about it except for the shoes. I love the skirt because I adore pleated plaid. I ADORE the corduroy pink jacted for it's detail and the fact that I know that I will be able to mix and match it with several other pieces. The shirt has some lovely detail and I had no problems putting the jacket on after I unbuttoned the sleeves of the jacket. The only thing that I have issue with are the shoes. Ick! I think they will go with a ton of other outfits that I have for the girls but I don't like it with the skirt. I guess I'm saying that on their own they are nice shoes but with this outfit they are a bit out of place for me. All in all I give the outfit an A-

I got everything with this outfit except the barrettes when I bought it used. Haley CLAIMS she doesn't like the style of the outfit, and she thinks the skirt is too short, but she looks ADORABLE in it:
I like it that every piece in this outfit can be mixed and matched with others.
I'm also thinking that perhaps different shoes and socks would suit Haley better.
I'm very pleased with this outfit, I just don't like the sneakers with it. I prefer to put Nicki's cowboy boots or Jess's sandals with it. I'm a really big fan of this outfit because of all the mix 'n' match possibilities it has.
The jacket is very cute; the cropped style makes it very trendy. It also looks great with a plain T-shirt and jeans. I wouldn't recommend buttoning the buttons; I don't think the jacket was intended for that. Grade: A
The shirt is a very nice pale pink color with a flower appliqué in the center. Not only does this shirt look cute with the plaid skirt, it also looks great with jeans. Grade: A+
The skirt, although a little short, is the perfect skirt for fall. It looks great with the pink long-sleeved tee, but I prefer it with black shirts. Grade: A
I’m not too big on the sneakers with the outfit, as I mentioned above, but they are perfect with jeans and sweatpants. They are very easy to get on or off. Grade: A+
