Yay!!! I got a few goodies in the mail yesterday and today (I saved a few bucks by using the Molly code twice and separating my order ) I will start with the item the was the reason I made my order. To be honest I never really thought this outfit (the ready for run one) was very cute. I thought it was "OK" but the color combo just never seemed to strike me as appealing. Then right after it disappeared from the catalogs and I found this board I fell in love. My girls needed another pair of jeans so I was excited to see it come back to the website for now. I really am glad I got this outfit while I could, I love embroidery and the jeans from this set are a great example of that. I also like the little side slits at the bottom. I do wish they had back pockets but AG jeans haven't had back pockets (Go forbid Mattel would chip in the extra buck for its customers ) since the days of Pleasant. The shirt is cute and seems versatile but for some reason I had thought it was long sleeved...Oh well.. three quarter length is even more versatile. I never thought I would like the sweatshirt/jacket in this set but it was the first thing I saw when I opened the box and I fell in love I just love the feel of the fabric and it even seems like you can reverse it to just being plain blue (has anyone tried this out) The shoes and socks are probably some of the favorites that I have. The striped socks are adorable and I love the stretchy fabric while the shoes are just too cute and look like the ones I love from the Petals and Plaid set but they are different colors. I think the hair-band that comes with this is cute and a nice touch and of course the UNDERWEAR!!! Yay! for any of you that have Nicki you need to get this set it comes with both jeans and undies! Two things Nicki needs but surprisingly doesn't have. I hope to get Nicki soon and when I do she may be in this outfit more than her own.
I loved this outfit! I think that it is something a Girl of Today would actually wear.I can not see anybody at a school wearing the I Like Your Style outfit or the Go Anywhere outfit. I think that this is the closest they have ever gotten to a perfect outfit. Good job, AG!
I like this set way more in person than I did from just seeing the pictures. Thanks Sproutsmom and Traveling Nora for giving me the chance to paw at them with my dirty mitts!
Some comments, before I slap up the crazy detailed pictures: Hoodie - I wish that the stripes went all the way around, but I love that the pocket is an actual little pocket! The blue lining is a really nice touch, but the hood itself seems a bit abbreviated and doesn't fit that well. I feel like I'm the only person who actually wears the hoods!
T-shirt - It seems a little short and the flower too big, but I love the length of the sleeves and how the velcro goes almost all the way down the back.
Shoes - These rock! I like the white and blue color scheme and the soles are pretty cool looking. The little elastic zig-zag is also pretty cool. I'm not so fond of how squishy they are, though.
Jeans - No elastic makes doll butts hang out, which is a pain, but the bead-work is so pretty! Overall, these aren't my style, but they do look really nice.

I agree with Keri. I fell in love with this outfit when Traveling Nora arrived with it (squished) in her luggage. We can always use an extra pair of jeans around here and the zip-up hoodie is so well made and cute.
I also agree that of all the JLY meet outfits, this one, I believe, real girls would actually wear!
I'm so glad I got this (on clearance now) for $18 on-line. Lots of pieces (including undies and socks!) included that you just can't go wrong with.
This is one of my favorite outfits. The shirt: It is a very nice, white shirt. I personally like the flower and as long as it's hidden or goes with the outfit it can be used for mix-and-match. It is something I would wear, and the girls I know (and knew then) would wear as well. The Jeans Jeans are classic, always in style. I like the design on them for the meet outfit, although it does restrict mix-and-match possibilities. I think the Black Logo Tee from 2004 also goes nicely with the jeans. The jacket I like the jacket - I love the red colors mixed with the gorgeous blue color. I think I had something like this when I was young, including the feel of the jacket. I personally prefer the outfit together with the jacket, and it is a nice piece to the set. The Socks These are adorable!! I was not expecting socks with my doll, and was delighted to find them. So cute. My best friend wears socks like that all the time, and did especially when she was in AG's target range. But I do not know if kids still do. The Shoes I love the shoes! I love that color of blue. I have not tried to pair them with any other outfit, so I am not sure how that would work, but they fit very nicely and go with this outfit.
My dolls: Samantha, Josefina, Chelsie (#16), Hannah (#22), Dresden (Caroline), and Bitty Mia.

I got this outfit off ebay and I have to say that it is by far my favorite meet outfit! The sneakers are some of my favorites of all the AG shoes and the jeans, tee, and hoodie are just *perfect* The only complaint I really have is the fact that it's hard to pair everything together without the sleeves bunching, but that's a problem you have with real people clothes so it doesn't change the grade
I brought mine from a board member for Athena. When I saw the outfit today, I loved it right away. The shirt is modest but seems to pull attention to itself. The jeans, oooo I love the jeans! I used to have a pair very close to those but now I'm a size too big . The socks are cute and I love the shoes. The jacket is well made and I wish it was in my size. I'd give it an A++
Honestly, I think along with the second meet outfit, this is the closest to what girls still wear these days.

I got this outfit in 2006 with my Aurora. It was my favorite of all the meet outfits past and present. I have since lots both socks, one shoe, the undies, and shirt, however, when i had all the pieces I'd rate the outfit a B. Hoodie: Love it! The fabric is accurate, I love the zipper, EVERYTHING. Shirt: Yick! I don't like the 3/4 sleeves, the flower was too boring for me. Pants: Ok. I don't like how they lay on the doll. I like LJ Jeans pattern better, but I like the slit leg, and the embroidery, and the real pockets, but I wish there were pockets on the back. Undies: Adorable! They hung around for about a month, then vanished, but i liked them. A little pointless though.... since Idk why a doll would need them for....? but cute nevertheless Socks: WHY DID I LOSE THESE?!?!?!?!?! I want to find a pair on eBay.... I LOVED THEM!!!! Prettiests socks AG EVER made. Shoes: Really cute. However I never figured out how they were supposed to go on........ Now I just have one left
