Sorry I don't know how to post pics so I can't share that with you. But I had to write a review for this fabulous outfit. The sweater is to die for - extremely soft, beautiful color and design. The leggings are thicker and more suitable for "cold weather." The boots are soft and a lovely shade, which is a cross between pink and lavendar I would say. It pairs extremely well with the puffy jacket and fingerless gloves, which match in color to the boots. The headband is wider than most and is also a nice soft quality and matches the color of the boots. Without a doubt I give this outfit an A++. You'll love it!

This outfit receives a "meh" from me. I purchased it the day of its release because of the sweater. It's got a great pattern and the color is beautiful. However, I would have preferred for it to have had actual sleeve seams: I don't like how it transitions from neck/collar to sleeve. I find that awkward. The sweater gets a B+. The pants are awful. When I opened the box, I thought that they were real pants and was delighted by that (I've been disappointed that so many outfits come with leggings instead of pants these days). Unfortunately, they turned out to just be thicker leggings! Extremely tight leggings! Poor Saige could not sit down in them; they were too stiff to bend! I wound up just putting in different pants. These have not been used since then. C-. The headband is cute and easy to use. A. The boots are okay; they fit fairly well and can be pulled on, but my concern is that they won't fit right with baggier pants. A-. Overall, I would only recommend this outfit if you really want the sweater. I give the outfit a B-.
I LOVE this outfit. I almost didn't buy it at Tysons but I am so glad I did. I wouldnt consider the pants leggings, more like tight sweat pants if that makes sense. sweater is beautiful, boots and headband are cute. great outfit!

I really like this outfit. The sweater is really pretty, and it's easy to use. The pants are easy to get on too and the boots are really cute. A very nice combination of colors! I like it on all the girls who've tried it on, but I must say it looks best on Molly!

Sweater – A+
The sweater is the reason I purchased this set. It’s a flattering, wintery blue and feels super comfortable. I sort of wish it was a little thicker, but it’s so smooth and comfy that I can’t bring myself to be that bothered by this detail. The decision not to have set-in sleeves is an interesting one from a design standpoint, but I like it. It’s a snug fit and you might have a difficult time getting it on a chunkier PC girl, but it looks nice on a Mattel doll. It fully opens in the back with Velcro for easy dressing (though I do wish it was the non-stick Velcro).
Leggings – A+ I really like these! They’re nice and thick and feel like they’d be appropriately warm for winter. Like the sweater, they may be hard to get on an older doll, but fit the current ones just fine.
Headband – B+ I’ve always wanted this headband to have a little more stretch. Maybe it’s just because I’m not a hair person, but I’ve always struggled to get this on a doll’s head. It’s serviceable enough, and I can’t complain about the actual construction, but I’d love some more give to it. At least it doesn’t have a huge tag like so many of AG’s current headbands.
Because of the problems I have with the stretch, I'm never able to get this very far up on the doll's dead. Hekla isn't worried because it keeps her hair back well enough, but I wish it didn't sit so far back!
Boots – A+ I wish I had a pair of boots like this! They’re soft, comfortable, and easy to slip on. They seem like they’d be nice and warm on a cold winter day.
I bought this set when it came out and paid the full retail price of $30 for it. I honestly think it may have been a bit overpriced for what it came with, but I’m happy with the quality overall and, in light of recent prices, would happily pay for it again.
Overall – A
This set has seen a lot of use in the six years or so that I’ve had it. It’s perfect for a casual winter outfit and its flattering, soft colours making it appropriate for either a holiday outfit or just a general, comfy winter ensemble. It’s been used for a couple of dolls over the years, but now Hekla has claimed it. Previously, it belonged to Saila (Maplelea). Two dolls with very different complexions, but it looks great on either one. A very versatile outfit!
Hekla, looking ready to settle down and open some gifts!
