From the AG website: Soft-as-Snow Outfit + Charm Item# F1690 Made for wintertime fun, and white as newly fallen snow, this outfit features: A sparkle-knit sweater with a mock-turtleneck and cable details A fluffy, faux-fur skirt, inspired by the perfect snowball—add leggings underneath for warmth Tall purple boots with furry trim keep her toes toasty Includes a "Strong" round charm for the doll's charm-keeper necklace
As a set, I'm not crazy about this outfit. So much so, that I almost didn't buy it. I ended up being glad I did, however. The skirt truly is very soft. It fits my skinny girl Katia really well, but is much too snug on some of my fuller figured girls. The sweater is a bit thin and also too short for my liking, but with a white tank underneath, it's still cute with jeans. The white leggings are a standard AG offering. Nothing special about them, but they are great for mix and match. The boots, though, are terrible. I like them in theory, but they bunch at the ankles, are too snug with the leggings underneath, and are really hard to get on so that they look right. They're also an odd color (a blueish lavender) that doesn't match anything else I've got. Overall, I give the set a solid B. The pieces as separates are fine, but all together, I feel like there's something lacking. Each piece needs a little work to make a quality set.

I got this set last week and am very happy with it. It fits my Susan (#21) perfectly and I also got the ear muffs that go -although bought separately- with it. So cute! I have never put on the boots yet, but actually got it to be an outside skating set, so Susan had something to wear with Molly when skating. The only skate sets I have seen from AG are more for indoor or sporty type set. I paired this one with the Fancy Skates and it looks adorable! The sweater is very nice, velcros in the back, the fur skirt is soft and fluffy, no problem at all in getting it on, and the leggings are fine too. Since they stop at the ankles, it is easy to slip on skates or boots on bare feet. I already had a pair of white fur trimmed mittens, so paired that up and it looks like a complete set.
Since I have not tried on the boots, I can't comment on the fit, but they are just OK.
I bought this outfit this past weekend at AGPLA. At first I was set on buying one of Caroline's dresses for Felicity but I had so much fun dressing her in modern clothes that I was drawn to this snowy outfit on display. I decided at the last minute to put down the other outfit and buy this one. I am really glad that I did. I think it is gorgeous and looks so nice with her red hair.
The sweater has Velcro in the back all the way down so it's easy to get on and off. It has some shimmery glitter that makes it sparkle. It's material is a typical cable knit sweatery material.
The skirt is white fur with an elastic waist. I think it could be slightly longer if I'm being picky. It seems to ride up sometimes too.
The leggings are basic white leggings without feet so it's easy to get them on and off and they stay in place.
The boots are a lilac color with white fur trim at the tops. They Velcro down the back. I always have difficult putting boots on my PC Felicity - her feet seem bigger than some of our other dolls. I can get these on and off but you do have to do some tugging to get them on. They are as hard to get on as the boots from the western wear set though. I tried the boots on Saige as well and they go on slightly easier than Felicity but it's still a snug fit.
I think it's a great outfit and would look nice with some ice skates as well. I wished I had the ear muffs that were displayed on the dolls in the store with this outfit and displayed online with this outfit but they were sold separately. They were sold out of the ear muffs at AGPLA and backordered online and would have added $10 to the price of the outfit ($34).
I give the outfit an A- - would have been an A+ with a slightly longer skirt and the earmuffs included since they show the outfit everywhere with the muffs.
I like this outfit and think it's cute. The sweater is pretty and shimmery but is a bit thin and you can see the doll's "skin" through the stitching if it's not laying correctly. The skirt is very cute and fluffy and the sweater falls to just the right place on the waistband of the skirt, so I'm happy about that. The white leggings are pretty basic and are the same ones that come with the Snow Flurry Outfit; the boots are very similar to that outfit's boots as well.
I think the outfit is almost TOO white, so my #32 will wear her charm necklace for some color as she models for you.
I put this outfit on my Caroline doll, and she's not especially beefy or anything.
Overall: It seems like it would be easy enough for the colors in this outfit to match, since it's mostly white. But the sweater and leggings are a much dingier shade of white than the very bright white on the cuffs of the boots. Do not like!
Sweater: Pretty, I like the sparkly fabric and that the sleeves are a good length since many AG sweaters seem to have sleeves that are a little too short. I also like that the sweater is a reasonable length. Wouldn't mind it being a little longer, but a lot of AG shirts are really short, so I appreciate that this one isn't. I do not like how tight the sweater is. It looks uncomfortable! The fibers are taut enough that you can see the doll's body fabric through it. Not so bad that it's hard to velcro shut, but still, it could definitely stand to be less tight.
Skirt: Oh, this is SO tight! Even as an adult, I had a hard time shimmying it up over the leggings. I think a kid would find it very difficult. It's also shorter than I would prefer. That aside, it's nice and plush and soft.
Leggings: Again, really tight. Could be a bit thicker. I do like that they're full length and not capris, though.
Boots: I think these would look better with the rest of the outfit if they were white. They are also VERY tight! It took a lot of wrestling to get the boots on my doll, and when I finally did get them on, one of them doesn't even velcro shut all the way. I'll have to be careful to keep her away from fabric when wearing this outfit.
Verdict: My overall impression is that this outfit is very tight! I half worry that my poor doll will develop body image issues because it's so tight. I got this on sale for I think 50% off, but would not keep it if I'd paid full price. It does look pretty cute when it's on, though. For all the reasons noted, this outfit gets a C grade from me.

This outfit looks extreme impractical for winter. I like the sweater, the leggings aren't bad but what the heck is that fuzzy thing supposed to be? My niece, age 5, liked it but hasn't put it on her doll yet. The boots go well with Alice's Anna costume, at least in a 5 year old mind they do, but they are fur trimmed which fits the Frozen theme.
