Leaked Gold Dress for Beforever Melody or Truly Me

This lace gold dress popped up on eBay a few weeks ago and appears to be a new outfit, though it's not clear which line it is from. My guess is most likely it is either for the soon to be released 1960s Beforever character Melody, coming later this summer, or the Truly Me line. It looks like it could be a holiday outfit, perhaps released later this year with the fall releases? 

For some reason, it reminds me of the coat set we saw appear on eBay. (You can view the photos of the coat here.) I think these two would be cute paired together, and look incredible on Melody, as a Sunday church outfit, or a holiday outfit. ^_^ Full list of all leaks/info/rumors for Melody at the bottom of this post.

Update 6/10: Another listing just appeared which seems to show the entire outfit. Photos have been updated below.

Additional eBay Photos:
It looks like the outfit will come with cream/gold tights, black flats decorated with bows, and a golden hair ribbon/headband. 

The color of this dress is more apparent now in this photo, taken in more natural light.

Flat... decorated with bows... XD Can you get more AG than this?

After seeing these additional photos, I am much more attracted to this outfit. :D I'm imagining how stunning this would look on Melody, especially paired with that beautiful coat!

For me, the width of the bows seem a bit wide, or at the very least, it gives me the feeling of "too much". I don't know how snippable these bows will be with a seam ripper, though from the picture it looks like they're all sewn straight down the center. 

AG... I love bows as much as anyone, but please... change it up a little! XD

Back of dress
I hope it's the non sticky velcro! I'd hate to see that ribbon or those metallic threads get pulled and snagged to shreds. 

At the bottom of the picture, you can just see a tiny corner of the AG tag. Initially I thought this dress had gold lace overlay on the fabric (wishful thinking?) but now I see the gold lace design is woven into the fabric and it's only one layer. 

I'm a little conflicted on this dress. My gut says I like it, but the 3 bows on the bodice and the fact the gold thread design is woven into the fabric, not a lace overlay is a bit off putting. I guess I'll have to see it in person modeled on a doll (maybe on Melody with the coat? :D) before I make my final decision, though if it's for the historical line, it's coming here no matter what. ^_^

  1. It's so pretty! Could is possibly be a Holiday dress?

    1. It's possible. :) AG does like their golden holiday outfits.

    2. Read her second book and you'll know. ;)

  2. I'm undecided on whether I like it or not, but my reaction is still "Wow!" It's probably that it's just so different from what AG usually makes. I can't wait to see what will be done with it.

    1. I agree. It seems the recent leaked outfits are different from the stereotypical AG offerings, but I'm okay with that and glad they're trying out different styles and colors! :D

  3. Begonia dress that looks nothing like a begonia? XD I love it, and I love the coat even more.

  5. Not a Fan :/. I don`t like the gold lace, and I think it makes the dress look too busy. The bows on the top remind me of Marie-Grace`s Skirt Set. I`m thinking this is for Melody, as the style seems too dated to be a moddie outfit. I think this would look GORGEOUS with the leaked coat.
    If this is for Melody though, I`m glad to see that AG is getting rid of the theme color scheme they have with Beforever. Melody`s collection has a lot of colors and styles

    1. I was not a big fan of the set color scheme for each Beforever character just because it feels so limiting. I'm really glad they seem to be trying out a bunch of different styles and colors for Melody!

  6. Hate it. I really hope it's just a prototype.

    1. Is it the bows or design that you don't like? I'm still waiting to see how it looks on a doll. :D

      Delete
    2. Just the whole thing. I like the shape, but the colors, flowers, bows, and stuff I don't like.

      Delete
    3. The bows are a little overkill for my taste too. I wouldn't have minded just one bow but 3? XD

      Delete
  7. It personally looks like a prototype of Julie's holiday dress

    1. The silhouette is kind of similar, though I like these sleeves more. :D AG seems to be pretty flexible with their fashion designs for the historical characters.

      Delete
    2. Well, let's be honest, the time periods aren't too far apart. Some outfits that came out in the 1960s were still worn and popular in the 1970s.

      Delete
  8. Meh, I'm waiting to see better pics in case it looks more appealing in different lighting, but so far this is the only leak that I'm not liking. Maybe it just seems too mature for a preteen, I dunno, but if it's just a prototype, I won't be disappointed.

    1. I actually think Melody's Peplum dress is the most mature, but this one isn't immediately "zinging" me with love either. Hopefully it'll be much more flattering on a doll!

      Delete
    2. I think Melody is a pre-teen by the time she wears this...A pre-teen is between ages 10 to 12...

      Delete
  9. Huh! You say it is gold, but to me it looks like a light blue! It only looks gold in one photo ��

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's probably due to the lighting in the first few photos. :) But I'm 100% certain from the last photo it's gold.

  10. It look's like it's an church outfit, possibly an choir outfit? :)

  11. This is her birthday dress, not the red one. It states so in her second book.

    1. Thanks for letting me know! I haven't read her 2nd book yet. ^_^

  12. I know what this dress is for. I read about it in her second book. Hint: January 1st. :P Don't want to spoil it for those who didn't read the books yet.
