I was much more excited about this doll until I actually had her. Her eye color is unique, but not enough to get me excited. Her hair is red, but again, not enough to get me excited. I disagree that her wig is the same as Caroline's, mine is not NEARLY as curly, and the photos you see were my absolute best to make it look curly. Caroline next to her in the photo has ringlets with no effort.
My biggest problem with Saige is that I had to go through probably 30+ dolls to find one who had non-wonky eyes. I consider myself only moderately picky, but I don't know what it was about the batch I saw. 75% of them had the doll's left eye (my right) smaller and angled down towards her nose. Another 20% had that same eye way too large, giving the dolls and o.O expression. I've never seen it this bad in a classic mold. If you're picky, I'd suggest picking this doll out in person.

I bought this set for the earrings, I don't think anything else in it is all that special. But it's cute, and goes well with her collection. It does bother me that they mixed gold and silver jewelry terribly, but that's probably a personal thing.

This outfit isn't worth $34 (not even an accessory, what??), but I didn't care and bought it anyway. It's cute, it's nice nice fabric, and it fits well. The leggings are high rise and don't fall down when the doll sits. The sweater is much softer than I thought it would be.

The shirt is eh, IMO. I'll pass it on to someone who wants it. They were handed out free at the MOA store to any child that entered. I asked for one as I was leaving (childless) and told the girl I had purchased the doll for my niece and thought she would like it. I was given one no problem.
Additional images I didn't want to resize because they lose detail:

I liked the doll version so much that I got my own set
I'm 5'1 and about a size 10 with a rather large chest. The large fit me just fine, although if they had an XL I would have purchased that. My only complaint is how SHORT this nightgown is. Really, I'm only 5'1, I'm used to everything being too long on me, and this really only reaches about 4 inches above my knees. I can't bend over without showing my butt! I read the reviews on AG's website and they all made similar remarks for the other sizes as well. Otherwise though, it's nice quality. I haven't washed it yet, so I don't know if it pills, but the fabric is very nice and soft.
B+, because of the shortness.
Also got the matching slippers, and they're SMALLLL. I wear a size 6 shoe, so I got the large which is 6/7. Big mistake, and now they're sold out of the XL. Not sure what I'll do about that one.
B- on those. They just look like average $9 slippers from walmart, at twice the price.

I'm very disappointed in this set. the top was difficult to get on (I really would not want to see a 5 year old try), and the shoes are the most ill-fitting AG shoes I've ever seen. Absolutely not worth $32, and probably not even worth the $27 I paid from it on spotlight savings. I'm going to return it most likely.

I'll take pictures when I can, but my camera battery is dead
The velcro of the dress is in the front, which creates a bit of a "slit" and makes it a bit more scandalous. It's the nice thin velcro though. The logos seem removable with a seam ripper. The boots are the same as Julie's calico dress boots, just in a different color.
Overall, A+. Couldn't be happier. Also, mine wasn't wrinkled when I got it.

Very cute set! I only got it because they are sold out online and I didn't want to regret it, but I'm so happy I did! I managed to fit all of Gracie's (#29) hair underneath the cap, and the goggles are perfect little imitations. The board and stickers went back in the box for storage though, I really have no need for them, and the doll can't hold the board.
