I have loved this outfit since the day it was released and I just got it earlier on in the summer. Onto the review portion, then.
Shoes: I'm starting with these because they are by far the most adorable pair of shoes I have gotten from AG, thus far. They slide onto the feet with ease and look like shoes any (pre)teen girl would wear. A+
Jeans: I love a good pair of coloured skinnies, and AG nailed them. I was a little disappointed with how they didn't even have faux pockets or even belt loops, which kind of killed them for me. They're a bright shade of orange, and, from my experience, don't show true to colour in pictures, always appearing more red than they really are. B+
Hoodie: I have to agree with the others, this thing is tough to get on! It took me and my mother to get it on my doll, and I'm 15. I like how there are real pockets and there is contrast stitching that pops against the grey hues of the fabric. The applique is very cute, and takes up quite a bit of the chest, and the small one on the pocket gives it all the more character. Upon putting this on my doll I have been scared to remove it... A-

My #60 just arrived yesterday, and I am so happy with her!
Meet Outfit: I still think the True Spirit outfit looks like a bomb went off in a kid's store, but separately it looks good. B
Doll: She is such a vision to behold, her hair/eye combo is gorgeous, her skin tone isn't bad at all, and she seems to look great in everything. Her hair is really silky and definitely seems more black than brown, the layers will pose an issue when it comes to styling, but that was to be expected. Her eyes are the same sapphire blue that McKenna has, and really pop next to the dark tone of her hair. Mine came with no issues whatsoever, and I am very pleased with her, so I give her an A+

I bought this outfit as an impulse buy in June and I do not regret it. Overall the set goes together nicely and is true to its time period, but it also works in a modern doll's wardrobe as well. Now for the real review.
Dress: This dress is the sweetest thing and really feels like an old feed sack dress. It fits really well on the dolls and I have no issues getting it on and off. It looks fantastic on all of the skin tones in my collection and goes well with each hair/eye combo too. This is by far the best dress I've gotten from AG. A+
Headband: This is a very cute headband, but I've been having some issues with mine falling off of the doll's head and not holding back hair. Because of the issues I give it a B
Shoes: I simply adore these shoes! They match the dress so well and the details are amazing, from the little buckles to the embroidery on the top. My only issue is that the shoes don't fit when the socks are on my doll's feet. So because of the issue with the socks I give them an A-
Socks: These are the cutest things and I must say these feed my obsession with tiny socks. They work well with many outfits and are very versatile. A

My #41 arrived in this outfit in August, and I was overall satisfied by it.
The Shirt- I love this shirt! The shirt is light pink, with slightly darker designs on it. It has capped sleeves, and a rather straight neckline. It gets a lot of use in my dollhouse, and is excellent for mixing and matching. A
The Skirt- I'm indifferent to the skirt. This skirt is made out of a weird stretch material, that although it's soft, isn't very nice, it feels really cheap. I don't like this weird half belt, it's very weird when I take a photo from the side and you only see half of it. Also the AG logo is in a very strange place, and is quite hard, it prevents me from properly folding it(for storage). B
Boots- I love these boots with other outfits, but not with the meet. Why on Earth would AG pair brown boots with green butterflies with gray and pink?! It is so weird and mismatched that they were the first thing I took off my doll. B+

I love this outfit! But I feel as though I have no use for the charm!
The dress is made of a nice, sturdy fabric. The bubblegum pink isn't my favourite, but it definitely suit the dress and it's print. The print is gorgeous, and the colours are so easy to pull from. The pleats are adorable, and the top is gorgeous.
The headband is well made, and really surprised me! It's made of a stretchy, mango-y coloured fabric(?), that is very durable, and well, stretchy!
The shoes are very cute, but one is larger than the other! Is it supposed to be like that, because none of my other AG flats are like that! They are cute, but out of all of my outfits, it's outfit is the only one that matches! The heel is cute, and is easy for your doll to balance on.
Overall I rate this outfit a solid A, because of the weird shoes.

I purchased this outfit for McKenna and MyAG #41. It really works nicely with doll with blue eyes, as it pulls the colour from them, and makes them pop; and against darker hair it creates the perfect contrast! The shoes I love to hate. They can be really hard to get on, but look great with a lot of my doll's outfits. The hair clip is cute, but if you put too much hair in, it won't close. The fabric from the dress is pretty thin, but it is a summer dress. Over all I rate it an A-, mainly because the dress looks great on all dolls.

I love this outfit! It's so adorable, and I love the little sneakers! I rate it an A-. The pants cling to my doll's panties, meaning I have to pull and yank up their panties before I can redress them. I also wish that it came with a shirt, you know a corresponding piece for those whose only doll would be McKenna. But other than that I love the outfit, and can find so many uses for it.
