I have had the locket pinned on Sam's Meet Dress since receiving her for Christmas 2005. It has darkened with time and doesn't seem to really shine up. I don't suppose we can expect too much as it isn't real gold. But it is worth mentioning that it doesn't stay shiny.
I give this dress and A+. I bought it on ebay because I loved the picture in the Autumn Bliss skin of Addy wearing it. The main reasons I love it are because it is LONG enough and it has a great shape. Some dresses are too short - for example, Samantha's talent show dress and Christma dress, though I still enjoy both of those, they are skimpy. This orange dress is not only long enough, but it has a nice full skirt that really holds its shape nicely. It stands away from her body all on its own, without any undergarments support. The green headband is a nice touch, too. I've very glad I have this dress.
