2014 LE Ruby Ballgown Review

Molly came home from her shopping trip with the 2014 Holiday Limited Edition Ruby Ballgown. I absolutely love this set!

 Doesn't Molly look darling in it?
I love how poufy the skirt part is, the layers of tulle are very soft.  If you plan on purchasing make sure and open up the boxes so you don't get a wrinkly one (although I've read that it's fairly easy to get rid of the wrinkles either by steam or damp cloth, no iron!) This one is straight out of the box, no wrinkles. :) It also comes with the gold shoes, metal hair clip, and a coin purse (not shown).

Closeup of the bodice. I like that it's just a touch of sparkle, very elegant. 

The coat is beautiful too, but I just don't like it paired with the dress, so I have Isabelle modeling it with last year's brocade holiday dress.  The material on the coat is a really nice wool like fabric, very similar to the one used on Felicity's red cloak.

The crystal (non-functioning) buttons are pretty. The coat doesn't close, but I don't mind because then you can show off the pretty dress underneath!

Aren't they a lovely pair?

 Molly was a bit chilly without the coat, so she found some furry accessories to keep her warm. The cape is from Kaya's Winter Accssories, and the muff is Samantha's. I also used her hairclip that came with the set as a brooch.

Last shot.
Molly says she feels like a "real life princess!"


  1. Molly is so pretty in the ball gown and Isabelle is gorgeous in that coat! Oh, and I love your backdrop with the Winter Chalet. It looks really good. :)

  4. Great review! I really like how you showed off the pieces. The coat is stunning paired with the brocade dress from last year. The ruby gown looks very elegant when paired with Kaya's warp and Samantha's muff. The retired Winter Magic outfit and accessories have similar accessories that would work too. Thank you for spotlighting this set with your adjustments.

  5. what a beautiful dress!! I absolutely love your photos! Awesome how you've shown of each individual piece and your own twist with added accessories :D So cool!! :)
