Upcoming Truly Me/BeForever Outfits, Holiday Dresses, and Photos

Aside from the deluge of leaked photos for the upcoming 2016 Girl of the Year, Lea Clark, as well as the 1950s historical BeForever character Maryellen Larken (released Aug. 27th), there have been numerous listings for potential outfits for the Truly Me Line, BeForever line, and Bitty line, including the holiday dresses and possible this year's store exclusive holiday dress on ebay.

I have organized them below. None of these are certain and are all my best guesses as to what they could be. Keep in mind the color could change, as we've seen that happen before. I am also uncertain whether all of these will be with the Fall 2015 release, or next year's releases.

A fellow AG collector who owns many of the following pieces has very graciously taken photos of the outfits on dolls and shared the images with us to post. Please do not repost the images without permission.

*Since these are either prototypes or grey market leaked items, they may be combined with an assortment of pieces across lines or from sets that are already released.

    1. XD Maybe a different color scheme can... work wonders? Though to be completely honest I love floofy stuff so I really hope the final colors are much nicer... :D

    2. Hey!!! That's offensive!!! I saved up all my money to buy it and I love it!!! And to buy it for $58 and have BethE make fun of it!!! You also called blonds hideous... I'm a blond, and I'm proud of it!!!!!

    3. Are you gonna say the gold dress is "Hideous" too? Cause I bought that too. :( I'm also planned by to buy that brightly colored Tunis top for Julie/truly me/goty2016, wait don't tell me, "It's hideous like the beautiful purple dress!!!"

    4. BethE expressing her dislike for the outfit is certainly not offensive. She doesn't like it and you do. That's fine. You don't have to like the same things but you don't need to be rude about it. Buy what you want and others will buy what they want. You're free to express here that you like the outfits just as she is allowed to express her dislike. Please refrain from such rudeness or I will have to mark your comments as spam.

    1. I do too! It's one of the first modern PJ sets I'm seriously considering.

  3. My first reaction to the possible store exclusive was Yeee-Uck, but on the other hand, that dress would be perfect for a Jazz Age/Art Deco-era historical.

    1. Hahahaha! I'm still hoping they color isn't lavender and will be something more flattering... XD Because I'm a sucker for exclusives and will get it anyway...

  4. Could the black shoes pictured with the holiday dress be Maryellen's Meet shoes? They look similar to the shoes on the cover of her book. Thanks for the great pics! - Niki

    1. I believe they are! ^_^ A lot of the leaks have a mish mash of items from across lines so it wouldn't be a surprise.

  5. I like the Bitty Baby holiday dress. And the pajamas. And the zebra sweater. And the sparkly shorts one. And the sandals at the end.

    1. Lol, it feels like we have similar taste because those are what I would have picked out as well. XD Which is surprising because I normally don't like Bitty outfits.

  6. So sick of the red holiday dresses, why can't they do a green one, most of this stuff is awful

    1. I would love love love a green holiday dress! I don't mind the red and gold, but green would have been such a nice change.

  7. I disagree - I think the store exclusive dress is utterly gorgeous! And the Bitty Baby holiday dress is even prettier. I will admit to being underwhelmed by the red dress, though - I've seen AG do better there. Also love the halter dress (it reminds me of sundresses from my 80's childhood) and the adorable Polar Bear Pajamas.

    1. You're the first one who I've seen say they like the store exclusive! ^_^ I'm still holding out hope they final color will be different though I love floofy ballgowns no matter what.

  8. I actually have seen the watch as part of Maryellen's accesories... I could be wrong. I like a lot of items except for the gymnastics set. It is not at all like what I wore to gymnastics!

    1. I'm not sure which line the watch falls into so I'll be curious to find out. ^_^ I don't do gymnastics so I didn't realize it's not accurate.

  9. Another red holiday dress, AG? And another gold one? Come on, I know you realize there are more colors in the rainbow. Look at last year's gorgeous blue dress, and the silver one too! The gold dress is fairly pretty, but the red dress could've used a lot more effort. I imagine the red dress might be highly passed up this time because of that, and because so many of previous years' (much prettier) red dresses are available on eBay practically at retail price or sometimes even lower.

    LOVE the Bitty Baby dress, though, it is absolutely gorgeous. Someone in my doll group is getting that dress, I'm not sure whom yet lol. Also really loving the black sparkle outfit and it looks like it could be a holiday outfit as well, really.

    Oh, and those precious polar bear PJs! I already have the blue polar bear PJs from 2013 but I need these too. I think these will do much better than the Fair Isle PJs from last year. I actually really like them, but these are a little more obviously Christmas pajamas.

    1. I'm pretty much in the same boat. I think the red dress is pretty but not special or unique in the line up of holiday dresses. The gold one is pretty through, and I'll be picking that one up for sure. Even though I'm normally not a big fan of the Bitty outfits, I think this year's Bitty dress is so beautiful, and it looks really good on the full sized doll too. I don't really collect PJs for the modern line, but the polar bears are really cute! ^_^

  10. I think the watch is for GOTY 2016. So many leaked items that could be from her collection have neon colors in them.

    1. That's a good guess! I can't wait to find out. :D

  11. The store exclusive looks like a wedding gown. Eww creepy child bride dolls lol. And I guess AG must think everyone celebrates the holidays some place warm, lol?

    Oh, well. I am just old and too frumpy to know what's in I guess. ;) Thank you for putting all these great finds on one easy to navigate site, Lilly Maiden! :)

    1. I am assuming there will be an accessories set with a coat/shrug. :) I'm glad you find the post helpful and fun to look at! Thank you!

  12. I L♡VE THE STORE EXCLUSIVE SAVING MY MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Hahaha, you are one of the few that do so far. :) I'm curious to see how it would actually look on a doll.

    2. Actually, I sort of like the store exclusive dress myself too. It just doesn't look like it's worth dropping $75 or even $50 on. The only store exclusive holiday gown I've honestly drooled over so far and wish I could get is the first one, with the blue dress and the fur cape.

      Delete
    3. Honestly so far I've liked all the store exclusives even though I didn't like the quality or prices very much. :D I think I'm just a complete sucker for things that are exclusives or limited edition.

  13. I think that alot of the items are super cute. So far from what I've seen, I'm not quite sure if I'm going to like GOTY 2016 too much, I think that she's going to look too much like Kanani, and I find that the items from her collection that I've seen are a bit to young looking in my opinion. Of course that makes perfect sense, since the dolls aimed towards elementary children and not middle school students.
    I'm actually wondering if the holiday store exclusive dress might be for Rebecca's collection? It reminds me of her for some reason. I'm excited to see it on dolls!

    1. That would be interesting if the dress was for Rebecca. It does look very dramatic and "movie star" like. :) I'm not even sure if it is the holiday dress but if so, I really hope the color changes. >_<

  14. I like the floofy special edition dress but I don't think I'd pay that much money for a dress. I think the shoes at the end are for the floofy special edition dress though.

    1. I am curious to see how well the dress will sell this year. The first outfit sold out quickly. Last year's was deeply discounted in order to get rid of it. :/

      That's a good observation about the shoes! I didn't make the connection but it does look like it matches.

  15. I expect to be buying the Bitty Baby Christmas Dress the next time I go to AGPSF. It looks so much better on an 18" doll than it does on a BB. I think it would look better on Ellie than either of the AG dresses for 18" dolls.

    1. I do think the design of the Bitty holiday dress is really cute, but personally, in general I prefer not to put the Bitty outfits on my 18 inch dolls, mainly because many of them are too short for my comfort and look too young for their character. Plus the outfits are big on the 18 inch dolls so end up looking baggy. :/

  16. im quite surprised how much every one seems to hate the store exclusive dress... im a sucker for holiday gowns in colors that arent traditional holiday gown colors so maybe that helps but i am just head over heals in love with the dress... i bought the store exclusive dress last year and want to buy every years dress as a kind of 'christmas tradition' for me and my dolls but im slightly sad bc i was really hoping for a lovely green dress this year!

    1. I'm actually a fan of big, fancy dresses in general so I have no beef with the store exclusive outfit. :) Like you, I also am planning on getting the special outfit each year! ^_^ Maybe next year it'll be green?
