From AG's Website: When it's time to relax, she can dress her doll in this casual outfit: A cropped hoodie—it has a zip front trimmed with ruffles A tank with a happy graphic print Twill pants have tabbed hems for a casual look Add the finishing touch with turquoise sandals Includes a "Strong" square charm for the doll's charm-keeper necklace
I love the colors used in this outfit. I'm so happy to have more neutrals for mixing and matching. The hoodie is soft and I love the ruffle detail near the zipper. The pants are nice and thick and I'm glad they don't have any logos or embroidery. The turquoise sandals have an elastic strap in the back to keep them on. The tank top has a shiny graphic on the front. I wish the top was just a tiny bit longer, but it's not too bad as is.
I will have to take some better pictures, but here are a couple for now.

I really like this set. The sweater is soft and thick. Gwen is my skinniest doll and it fits her pretty well, but It might take a little stretching for it to fit some of my other dolls. The leggings are a nice color and I like that they're longer than many of the other AG leggings. The boots are really cute but as others have mentioned they are a pain to get on.

I was really undecided between this set and the Feel Better set so I ended up ordering both. The panda is adorable, and my new favorite AG plush! The ace bandage and cast are both nice and fit well. The crutches are plastic...but the Feel Better crutches I received are also plastic. If I had known that ahead of time I probably would have skipped the Feel Better set and just have gotten this one.

I was pleasantly surprised with how nice this set is! It comes with lots of pieces and a variety of hair accessories, which I like. The shorts are super soft and fit well. The purple sweater is really cute and velcros in the back. The ankle brace goes on with a little tugging, but stays on well.

I love the jacket. It fits well, but I haven't tried a shirt on underneath it yet. Anyone notice that the jacket on the hairstyle card has an orange zipper pull, but the actual jacket has a silver one?
The pants are pretty nice, I like cinched part at the ankles. The shoes are cute too and have elastic laces. I like the colors and details.

I love the different color highlights in McKenna's hair. I'm still undecided about her wig. I haven't played around with it enough yet so I'm not sure if I like the no part thing. Her meet outfit is cute. I really like the gray and turquoise color scheme, but could do without the purple ribbon graphic on her leggings.
Now for some McKenna/Elizabeth/Chrissa comparison pics:

The velvet part is soft and stretchy and the dress is very nicely made. The shoes are cute and fit well. the headband decorations are a little odd, but it looks good with the rest of the outfit. The tights ane pretty thick.

I have a black grand piano (still at my parents house) and played from 2nd grade all the way through high school. I missed out on the last piano so I knew I had to have this one! It's plastic, and has a few issues, but I still love it. It's a fantastic display piece!
Piano - It's plastic, but still pretty solid. The legs are hollow, but seem sturdy enough. The innards are a combination of plastic and thick paper/cardboard. The 3 buttons on top play songs. The power switch is on the side, and emits a red light when it's on. I don't have a picture, but it makes a glowing red dot on the wall of my dollhouse when it's on. Overall I think it looks very nice.
Bench - This is my least favorite part. It's really cheap, hollow and light weight. The construction and material is very similar to the table/drawers from Julie's bedroom accessories. I have it sitting on a rug (placemat) in my dollhouse to prevent it from sliding back when I sit a doll on the bench. It just needs to have more weight to it.
Books - Very cute, just like the piano books I had as a child. They fit nicely in the bench and sit on the ledge of the piano as well.

I bought it during the cyber monday sales last year too. I don't think I've ever used all the pieces together. The blazer looks cute with Emily's headband. I have the pants paired with the pink top from the 2008 School Days Outfit right now, but I haven't taken a picture.

I bought this when it was in the last chance sale for $18. I like the simplicity of the dress, but the fabric seems very prone to snags. The headband is ok, but I love the shoes. I like all the mix and match pieces and that you can dress it up for holiday or leave off the tights and sweater for an everyday look.
A- for snag prone fabric, but otherwise it's great.

Here are some pics of my new #55, Meadow. She is gorgeous! Her face paint is nice and bright although you can't really tell in the pitures. I love her freckles and I knew I had to have her the instant she came out. Her wig is pretty thick and nice and shiny. She looks good in everything I've put her in so far.
Somone had asked for some comparison pictures of #55 and Ruthie so I figured I would add them here too.

I like this outfit quite a bit. The fabric is really soft and I love the color. The shoes are adorable, and great for mixing and matching with other outfits. The headband is nice too. I tried it on the other way with Mia, but I like it better the way I have it below.

Her hair is gorgeous. It finger curls easily, but I do think it will take a little extra effort to keep it looking nice.
The flower clip is very easy to use. I included a picture of the back below so you can see how it clips. The shoes are cute, but the elastic on the back of one of mine is very loose and always falls off. Her necklace is pretty and ties in the back, but it's long enough that you don't have to untie it to get it on and off. Her dress is nice and summery and I really like the color.
