We just got his outfit and it is just lovely! The purple fabric is much nicer in person than in pictures. It has a lovely soft sheen, not as shiny as it looks in the photos. The colour is very pretty as well, it's a little more of a wine colour than a bright purple. It also has a fun green lining in the bodice- a nice touch. A+
The hairband is also lovely- the bow on ours lays flatter than in the pictures and I think it looks much better that way. It's very on trend- my daughters and their friends wear very similar styles. It's that funny half-style that AG seems to do with all of their hairbands, but it is what it is and fits properly if you set it right. A+
The tights are nice black tights, good quality. A
The shoes are fine. Shiny purple with a black velvet bow. They're not as cute as some of the AG shoes, but they fit with the outfit and who couldn't use a pair of shiny purple shoes? A
My biggest beef with this outfit is the price. We got it slightly discounted, but it's a lot of money for what it is, especially since the accessories really make it. It's cute on its own, but the jacket makes it really special. Outfit + Accessories is almost 70 dollars and that's before tax and shipping. Ouch. A-
I think this dress looks great on the darker skinned dolls also. The color is really pretty, and the material is nice. Not that crazy about the shoes because of the shiny almost plastic look, but the rest of the outfit is fine. A- because of shoes.

This outfit is just lovely. It's nice to have a break from the usual red dresses AG's had for the last several years. The bodice is fitted nicely and the tights are high quality. The headband has a huge tag on it that necessitates scissors, but otherwise looks fine. If you don't push it far enough back on the doll's head, you can get a bit of a gap between the head and the headband (which looks silly). The shoes are okay, but they don't quite match the dress and they're not particularly stylish.
