I get a real "cat woman" vibe from this outfit. More authentic to me than the current version that has a skirt. How many cats do you see with skirts? I did not have any problems with fit. This outfit was as easy as any to get on a current Mattel doll. Knowing the ears stain, I simply put them over the hair so they don't touch the dolls skin. The mouse is adorable and squishy. Solid B+, would be an A except for the known staining issues with the headband.

I found my #39 on ebay just 8 short months after she was released. She reminds me of Rachel from FRIENDS so that is what I named her. I can't stop changing her clothes, she looks great in everything! Her hair is a little bit fly away because of the layers. I'm not a fan of how all the new dolls are constantly looking at the ground.
The shorts have elastic around the back of the waist. They fit well enough but I'm afraid Lanie might develop a 'plumber's crack' if she bends or sits down! The fabric is nice, thin enough that I imagine it would be cool to wear, yet Lanie's blue undies don't show through. The embroidery is neatly done... it's okay but I could do without it.
I have this outfit and the blue undies do show through the shorts. My Lanie has to go commando.

Updated review: Tights: F
The 2ND time I put the tights on Julie, they got a huge hole in between the legs. This was from very gently pulling them up around her waist.
ETA: I emailed CS via the AG website and told them of my situation, they sent me an email back within 15 minutes telling me they were sending me a pair of replacement tights for free. Another win for AG CS!

Hair: Wild, crazy, unbrushable hair. Will need to be picked and finger curled. These curls are straight out of the box. Body: My doll was stuffed funny so one leg appeared longer than other so I took the head off and moved around the stuffing. Outfit: Cute. Headband near impossible to get on.

As outrageous as the prices are lately, I think you get a lot (by AG standards) for what you pay for. Bag, laptop with 3 screens, bracelet, bunny, postcards and letter.
The bag is a tight fit for the laptop and a little hard to get it to stay on Lanies' arm without putting it over her head. I think the strap needs to be longer. The dragonfly's tail is starting to fray. The laptop screens "cling" to it. The keys do nothing. It doesn't turn on and off as past computers AG has offered. The bracelet can be adjusted to fit over different outfits. The bunny. Well, its a stuffed bunny with a leash. Postcards and letter, tiny and cute. I give it an A overall.
I exchanged the first set I bought because the hinge on the laptop was broken. If you can, inspect before buying.

I was not into Chrissa at all, But then I saw this one for sale from another board member and thought I'd give her a shot. She arrived yesterday and is everything I could have hoped for. Absolutely darling! So I thought I'd add another picture for those of you on the fence about her. Get her while you can.

Thank you for posting your photos! She looks completely different than in the AG stock photos. She seems to have a much different skin tone. I thought she would be much darker. She is beautiful though! I love her in Ruthie's dress. Congrats!
ETA She is super cute with her hair in piggies!
Edited again to add: Did you expect the doll you received after seeing this photo online?
It just doesn't seem like the same doll to me, I'm in shock!

Here's Kirsten's nightgown on ALOF Laylie. I got this nightgown in a lot on ebay. It's PC and seems to have lost it's softness (it also has a hole in the back where it velcroes). I'm indifferent towards it really, just a standard nightgown.
