Thoughts on the Latest AG Release Part #1

I know I haven't been posting much - but I just got to my vacation home and I'm now all settled in and ready to post some more! I happened to check AG's website and found out about the latest release of stuff. I don't know when it came out, so maybe this is late, but these are just my opinions on some of the latest stuff and the new Grace movie, too!
Grace's Sightseeing Outfit - $30
I actually am surprised by how much I like this outfit. I like how the skirt is separate from the top. I'm not a fan of the sequins at the top, but it is all okay. I probably won't be buying it, though.
Grace's Accessories - $28
I do not like these accessories paired with the suggested outfit (sightseeing outfit). The red shawl and blue heart glasses are both out of place, I think. The black boots pair nicely; even nicer than the sandals that come with the actual outfit. I think that instead of separate accessories, they should've forgotten about the shawl and glasses and sandals and just put the boots with the sightseeing outfit to begin with.
Grace's Hair Accessories - $22
I really like this hair set, but the only hair accessory actually worth anything is the bow made out of hair, and I could see that falling apart easily. The other stuff could probably be pieced together at a dollar store.
Grace Stirs up Success Movie
The movie was cute and pretty good. I liked how the girls weren't all overly made-up and they actually all looked believable as girls in the 10-12 age range. The whole movie was a little over-dramatic and predictable, which definitely contributed to the movie being less entertaining.
The big thing that annoyed me was that the movie didn't show or address the actual process of creating a business. If the girls were actually starting businesses with cupcakes to sell food on baseball/little league grounds, they would've definitely needed a permit of some kind. Also, I felt like they just made up a bunch of business ideas and forgot about them.
The movie was all over the place. First she wanted a new bike so she made a cupcake business, then she went to Paris, came home, saved the bakery, then went on Master Chef Jr. Master Chef didn't really fit into the storyline and I think that it should've been left out (however they probably couldn't because it was probably part of AG's sponsor deal).
Overall, the movie was alright and it had a few good parts and a lot of scenes that just didn't add up.


  1. Hello! I nominated you for an award on my blog!


  2. Cool post! I haven't watched the Grace movie yet (I want to though!) but I've heard it wasn't all that great from a friend. I love Grace's sightseeing outfit but I'm not sure if I'll get it either!:)
