Thank you to the wonderful Gabbie who shared with me the link to an eBay listing for what appears to be an unreleased winter themed dress. I'm wondering if it could be the limited edition, store exclusive Truly Me winter outfit for this year. If so, I would guess it to be released around the end of November like in previous years. The auction is still ongoing so I will add the link to the bottom of this post once it ends.
Original eBay Photos:
I am assuming this is not the full outfit and that the final version would be paired with some sort of outerwear, hair accessory, and bag/purse like the previous limited edition outfits have been.
The dress itself looks a bit "cheap" to me just from the photos, partially due to how shiny and reflective the picture is, but I really do think it has the potential to be cute depending on what's paired with it. It's hard to make out the color from the photo and looks to be either white or a very very very pale lavender (though I'm hoping not since last year's dress was also lavender). The collar area on the bodice is decorated with rhinestones and the cap sleeves are a sheer tulle. There is a sheer tulle overlay on the skirt as well, decorated with glitter snowflakes and more rhinestones at the bottom.
The shoes are not exciting to me, just the standard AG flats, only glittery. I like the idea of mini heels like the first year's limited edition outfit.
Overall, I'm reserving judgement til I see this in person on a doll, just because it's so hard to tell from the photos what the final impact will be. ^_^ I both love sparkly things to a fault, and also don't want to fall into the gaudy sparkly trap so we will have to see. The outwear and accessories can make or break this outfit for me, but no matter what, unless it comes with a solid platinum cape, I hope the starting price tag won't be $72. XD
