I love these shirts. I have six--3 long sleeves, 3 short sleeves. I find that they are great for the layered look. I particularly love the white long sleeve under a short sleeve shirt, mostly because that is how I wear my t-shirts in the winter!

I purchased the Wilderness Outfit on Monday afternoon in AGPNY. Anyway, I didn't bring a doll with me, so I didn't have a chance to try it on until I got home. Well, I was trying to get the shirt on--and one side I was able too, but the other side I couldn't (Even other people tried!) I ended up taking the shirt off, and realized that part where the hand goes through, on the right side was a good 1/4-1/2 inch smaller the other side. I was so disappointed, because I was looking forward to that outfit, especially the top.
I would double check yours to see if the same problem has occurred.

Well--I received this package yesterday--but wasn't around until about 10 or so at night to open it, and thus no real pics.
This is what I would a perfect "code" outfit. I am not crazy about paying $30 (full price for it) but it does make the transition nicely into $20 after the 10 dollar off 30 codes. So, honestly--I'd rather it be $30 then $28.
The fun stuff: The book it comes with talks about yoga for girls--which is really interesting, because where I live, lots of little kids-boys and girls are taking yoga. (They have child yoga classess at Y). They give hints on what to wear, and they said that shoes aren't required for it. (which I guess is why they added no shoes to this). The book also states to wear loose fitting clothing--and give about 5 different poses girls can do. (with actual photos of girls doing them correctly--so you can see what they look like). They talk in the book about breathing as well. I think this book is a great introduction for a girl (or boy!) who is interested in yoga. It is very beginnerish--so it is easy to understand.
I really enjoy the outfit. First off, because the book stated to wear loose clothes, the items in this outfit, are not tight at all. I don't think this will have a problem fitting on the chubbier PM dolls. It consists of a tank top of dark purple, with a design at the bottom, a lavenderish sweat jacket--with a zipper up the front and deep purple embroidered (real--no pseudo embroidered like Kirsten) flowers on the sides and a deep, deep, purple yoga pants, which are loose on the legs. They look a lot like mine--except that mine are black.
I can easily see using this pieces with mix 'n match potentional--even the tops with jeans. The only thing that has velcro on it is the tank top. I do wish they included a bag for the yoga mat but oh well.
The missing of a bag for a yoga mat and no shoes are the biggest offenders in this outfit. Still--because the price is $30-I will rate it at an A (because 24 w/shipping seems much more reasonable when you include it with those minor lacking details) However, if it was $28 dollars--and did not fit into the code so nicely, I would have rated it a B.
Moral of the story: If you want this outfit--get it while the Chrissa code is still good!

Well...my cousin's birthday gift got delivered today--so before my parents picked up, I decided to snap a few pictures. I am sorry for the quality of the pictures--they lighting isn't the best. And of course, I got her when it was dark out--so I couldn't use natural light.
Tomorrow, if I have time, I may take them outside--but right now, Gwen is back in the box. My point of reference is #12 that I was bought about a year and a half ago, so I don't have comparison's of a revised #12 (did they revise #12?) Personally, they are one in the same--which doesn't stop me from wanting a Gwen. But that would mean that I could use #12 in an eye swap with Ruthie to give Ruthie brown eyes and then my #12 would be like the retired gray eyed/blonde girl which I always coveted. But I digress.
From the front:
As you can see, the main difference in the front is the length of the bangs. Gwen seems to have the feathered bangs--I believe. They have the same eye color and face mold.
From the back w/the hair up:
The hair seems to be the same exact shade to my eyes-maybe a smidge darker, but that is if you really squint and pretend that you want the shades to be different.
From the back w/the hair down:
Again, it seems to be roughly the same length. The big minor difference here-is Gwen's hair is ever so slightly layered--and #12's is the same exact length. #12 wig seems to be a bit fuller--however, Gwen does has a very nice thick wig as well.
The main difference to tell if you have a Gwen or a Gwen imposter (#12) on Ebay or anywhere else is this:
On #12 you can see how far back the bangs start, the classic "pie wedge" bangs--and on Gwen they are a lot closer to the forehead.
Obviously, since I don't have a revised #12--I can't identify major differences. I do love Gwen--just wish there was some huge difference between her and 12. A face full of freckles like the actress would be nice!

I actually only took pics of her hair---the lighting in our place is terrible--and it is super cold out--my toes could only stand being outside for so long!
Anyway, I know that people have seen many pics of her face--so you know what she looks like. And there were lots of pics of her hair as well.
Well to me her hair is a cross between Nicki's and #24-just different colors obviously. My #24 has very silky, soft and full hair while my Nicki's is a bit drier and thinner, but very, very curly. Sonali's has the fullness and texture of #24, but more curls--similiar to Nicki's. (My #24 may have had that curly hair--but well, after about 4 years of brushing and such, the hair may have relaxed into looser waves.)

I have had no problem with my Mia standing with her boots. However, because of the color of the boots-I just don't care for them. My Mia has been able to stand on the coffee table since yesterday evening (even with the cats running around) with the boots on.

I have it; but don't care for it. However, my husband bought it for me as a gift for our anniversary, and he was so PROUD of it-I didn't have the heart to tell him it was ultimately won the Mr. Cheese award in cheesiness I do like the apron though.
Plus the price tag is a bit much; I might have been more willing to put up with its cheesiness if it was 16 or 18 dollars.

I received this outfit as part of my return order. I am so pleased with it. First off, it is a great mix and match outfit! This outfit comes with: hot pink Coconut shirt, khaki pants, sneakers, four star clips and a book. For the price of 24 dollars it is a great deal!
All of the pieces are great for mixing and matching-I love the belt that loops through the pants. The pants are also able to fold up into shorts.
I would definately buy this outfit, not just as a return!

I love this dress. I hear people say that it is not like something that a kid would wear...but it is nearly identicle to my cousin (who was 2 at the time) dress that she wore when she was the flower girl in my wedding.
