Oh, I use it anyway. In my opinion, "une jolie fille" is a beautifull girl, and I use it as a synonym of "belle". Elle est vraiment jolie = elle est vraiment belle. (I hate hearing "elle est bonne", that souds horrible !!!) However, I woud not write the first one. But I guess it depends on the place you're from.
