Mysterious Sweater Solved! New Winter Outfit for Truly Me!

Ever since the mysterious, fuzzy, white sweater leaked on eBay last fall, we've been wondering what it's for, and when it would be released. I had started to give up on the sweater as a rejected prototype when it finally reappeared on eBay yesterday (thank you to SailorMolly on AGPT who shared the link with me!), this time with an entire outfit! It looks like a new winter outfit for the modern Truly Me line, and my guess is it will be released with the fall release. The auction is still live so I will add the link to this post once it ends. We were fortunate enough to receive photos last fall of how the sweater looks modeled on a doll from a fellow collector who purchased the sweater, and I have linked that below for anyone who is curious. ^_^

Detail Photos of White Sweater Modeled on Truly Me #26 Doll: 


Original eBay Photos:
Ta-Da! The full outfit... revealed! It looks like the white sweater is being paired with pale blue leggings, pale blue skirt, faux fur boots, and a faux fur headband. 

This picture and the one below of the white sweater are the same photos the ebay seller used last fall when the white sweater was sold by itself. You can see more detailed photos of the sweater and how it looks on a doll by visiting the original post here: http://lissieandlilly.blogspot.com/2015/11/mysterious-leaked-white-fuzzy-sweater.html

I'm a little put off/confused by the faux fur only being present on one side of the sweater. The back closes with velcro like all AG tops. 

The skirt and leggings both have an elastic waistband (to stretch after your doll chugs all that hot chocolate) and I do like the quilted detail on the skirt. 

The faux fur headband looks pretty simple, and a bit chunky, but it's probably to disguise the hot chocolate going to your head. ^_~

Cute boots, though nothing too terribly unique. I do like the light blue bead dangles which match the pale blue theme of this outfit.

Honestly? It's not my favorite and I do not see myself bringing the outfit home, even on sale. I much prefer the Soft as Snow outfit as my modern "white winter" outfit. This set looks like a mish mash or several previously released outfits: boots from Winter White Outfit, leggings from every AG outfit ever, quilted skirt reminds me of a shortened Maryellen poodle skirt in a different color, headband from the Snowflake PWP dress last year, and of course, the white sweater looks to me like the faux fur skirt migrated up and glued itself to the white sweater from the Soft as Snow outfit. XD

It has the potential to be a cute outfit, and great for those who don't have another other AG "white winter" style clothes, but it's just not for me. ^_^

    1. And to elaborate: I have seen one too many hardly-matching all-white outfits with skirts/shorts and tights. I'm getting tired.

  2. I don't know about this. Its cute....but it looks completely identical to older outfits from AG. I wish AG would do something else besides the snowy sweaters...maybe like snow pants and sled set? Haha i don't know about this tho.

    1. Definitely this outfit makes me feel like AG is recycling things, and not in the most creative way. XD

    2. ANOTHER WHITE WINTER OUTFIT, AG? There have been so many white winter outfits from AG and none of them looked cute or warm enough (*cough*White Winter Outfit*cough*). For crying out loud, the doll`s wearing fugly leggings in the cold, she`ll freeze to death! Atleast make her freeze to death in style!

    3. Like, AG Leggings always seem so thin like tights- if you take that in account, that means the doll is wearing a skirt during winter!

    1. Yup. AG needs more creative recycling. XD

  4. Skirt and leggings?? Nah, and most certainly not for Maryellen. Back then girls could wear snow pants to school under a dress or skirt, but they had to remove the snow pants once you got to school and put them in the closet. Consequently, I've never been a fan of skirts with leggings; worse yet is skirt with bike shorts.

    1. I'm 100% certain this is not for Maryellen, and since the modern style is to wear leggings, it doesn't bother me.

  5. The skirt is cute, but the rest is ick. Same old, same old.

  6. This almost looks like clothes a human would actually wear to me, ha ha, but it does lack a wow factor.

    1. Hahaha! I love the cold and live in a hot area so I can't even imagine wearing such a heavy sweater. :D

  7. *sighs* Oh, AG! Another white winter outfit?! Personally, I don't love it. I think AG makes wayyyyy to many white winter outfits and needs more color. Please, AG!

  8. I'm looking forward to getting this outfit I love the boots, & I like the skirt. Hated the furry skirt to the soft as snow outfit, so I passed on that one. I wasn't crazy for last year's colorful & expensive warm winter set, but I got it in a deal with a doll & a pet. I like the traditional white & light blue for winter clothes, & red & green for Christmas dresses. (If only AG would do green) Also wish they would make some fair isle type sweaters.

    1. I'm glad you like this outfit even if it doesn't really appeal to me! But I'm with you 100% on hoping for a green dress. :D
