What's red, and green, and leopard printed? The new DKNY collection, of course! Ok, lame attempt at humor aside, I think this collection is definitely hot. Very New York, very chic, very wintery, and very cute. The only thing I don't like is (you guessed it) the price. But, blame the consumer in me, I immediately went and bought a number of pieces. I mean, how could I resist? Have you looked at those dresses and jackets?

But now it's your turn. What's your favorite piece (or pieces, you're totally allowed to have more than one!)?

Kohls 2009!

Second post, here we come! I'm good :)

This time around, Kohls. Who's excited? I know I certainly am! Fun Kohls clothes for Non-Superstars? Count me in. As with any store, there are some hits and misses (like that suit.... I'm still not sure what exactly I think about it), but on the whole, I'm a fan.

Here's my review of the whole thing.

The Candies collection is super cute, from the checkered coat, to the purple belted shirt, to the peep-toe heels. I'm in love with the bag the Britney doll is holding and that black skirt in the back is oh so sweet. However I'm not sure what to think of the plaid blouse on the far right... is it supposed to be bat wing? And compared to past collections, the pants aren't too impressive this time around. But on the upside, I like the necklace that pants suit model is sporting. Over all? A -

Oh Abbey Dawn.... where to start? I've never been a fan of an entire Abbey Dawn collection and this one didn't make me change my mind. I'm of the opinion that everything looks like it's completely ill-fitting and is just overall not visually pleasing. That's not to say that I don't find ONE thing I like. This time around it was the black and pink dress that Avril's is modeling. I love it! This is one case where girly-rock works. For me, that dress is the saving grace of this entire collection. C +

Now for my personal favorite, Mudd. The Mudd collections continually impress me, they're full of cute, casual clothes that I can easily imagine myself wearing not only on my MeDoll but also in real life. I love the checked purple shirt, the gray sweater dress is adorable, the jeans are great, the bag is fun, the puffer vest, hat, and scarf are cute, what more can you ask for in a collection? Great shoes, you say? Well you're right, there. But incredibly they've got those too! Boots! How nice. I like it, Stardoll. I really do. A +

Holiday Party Themes

Hey guys! Lydia here, just in case you've forgotten who I am. That's what college does to you I suppose though. First semester is finished and I love it! I'm on break right now, so I figured I'd do a couple of updates on the old blog. Look for a number of posts in the next few days! :)

First things first though, the holiday themes Stardoll has released! For those who have been living under a rock for the past, oh I don't know, MONTH, Stardoll has opened a Holiday Boutique with two major themes

1) Golden Indulgence

2) Ribbons and Bows

The themes are pretty nice too! One look at the first floor of the shop and this much is clear, bright colors and ruffles are definitely hot this holiday season.

Another trend is prevalent on the second floor: gold. Let's just say there's a reason Stardoll called it "GOLDEN Indulgence."

I'm excited for this one: gold is a great color. It looks great on almost everyone, brightening skin tones and making a statement when worn as a dress (such as the ones below).

However my all-time favorite trend of this holiday season is definitely jewel tones. Just take a look at that GORGEOUS purple dress on the third floor! I'm also loving the off the shoulder red dress and military-inspired high waisted pants suit behind it.

But there's one thing that's definitely not hot, no matter the season -- and I'm not talking about the see-through blouse on the second floor of the holiday boutique. What's with those prices? 18 Stardollars for a single dress? I can make whole outfits for that much! Thankfully they've been fair and kept most of the shoes and bags Non-Superstar, but still. Yikes. I for one think low prices in a holiday shop would be a fabulous Christmas present. Who's with me?

Is anyone else finding themselves bored of Stardoll? Where's the excitement? The thrill of new releases? Or even a new nonSS perk?! Where's it all gone?

I keep coming back to Stardoll, simply out of habit at this point, because it used to be so much fun. What about now? Sure it's still the same basic concept, but something's missing.

Everyone's Favorite....

Stardoll's come out with some of our favorite things.... re-releases!

Remember these items? You should. We saw them about eight months ago. Both the Hjabs and the Aba'as are re-releases. But you'd think that they could at least wait a little longer, right?
The only other notable item on the page is the hot buys sweater. Personally, I'm not a fan. Anyone else agree or disagree?

Limited Bags

Hey guys!

Sorry for the horrendously long wait... I just started college and I'm in the middle of orientation week. They're keeping me super busy with all sorts of fun activities and such, so even though I've tried to get on, I haven't been able to!

But now for a brief news update.

Stardoll has released a handful of Limited items, all bags this time. I don't know about you, but I'm not particularly a fan of these.... Stardoll is perfectly capable of making nicer items, especially when they've proved it a number of times. Personally, I think these bags look like they were just trying to make something really fast, just to pacify us.

Just a hint, Stardoll: when you want to make us happy, release something completely gorgeous. We'll be a lot happier then.

Candies/Kohl's New Releases

Hey guys! Sorry for the extreme lack of post-age.... I'm in the middle of play rehearsals and we perform this weekend so I've had literally no time to devote to ANYTHING online!

Anyway, lots has happened since our last post -- enough that I can't cover it all here. But something big happened this morning! Stardoll released the next Kohl's, Candies, and Abbey Dawn lines! They even went further and released a Mudd line too! How awesome is that?!

The clothes are all non-superstar, which sure made me start to cheer. I personally have more nonSS friends than SS friends, and I think it's beyond time that the nonSS users got some super cute clothes!

I ended up buying about 57 stardollars worth of clothes from the total Kohl's line :) It was all just to cute to resist. Funny thing though, in the Mudd section there's this sweet little pink shirt with peace signs all over it... I bought the same thing in blue (in real life) two days ago. It must be like the sixth sense of mine ;)

MKA sale

There's a sale at the MKA store in starplaza! Now, since it's not monthly sale time, one can only assume we're getting a new collection soon, right? Let's hope so! I'm not a huge fan of anything in the current collection (except those gray and maroon shoes! Love those!).

I'm hoping for more Elizabeth & James clothes... the new E&J collection in real life is absolutely delightful and I know we loved having E&J on stardoll, even for a little while. Maybe stardoll will surprise us and give us E&J instead of more MKA? It would certainly match the glamorati theme a bit better....

I'm Back!

Geez, I go away and Stardoll gets crazy busy!

Let's see, how about a list of everything that's happened. That seems like a good way to do this, otherwise I doubt I'll get through it all! So we've got the makings of a HUGE post here, what with pictures and all. Well, let's get this started or we'll be here all day!

1) first things first. Glamorati. The new trend taking over stardoll. Personally, I like it. The purple dress is my favorite :) Miley Cyrus seems to be the darling of the trend, so many of the dresses are Miley dresses. Buy 'em now, folks, remember what's happened with other Miley dresses? They're now collectibles.

Speaking of Miley, recognize that white and black dress on the right? Yeah, that lovely free dress from a few weeks ago is now selling for 10 stardollars. That's right. 10 SDs versus free. And while we're talking about expensive, did anyone take a look at the price tag on that hot floral dress on the left? 16 stardollars. Outrageous!

2) New shop alert! Let's give a warm stardoll welcome to a shop that isn't filled with re-releases: Basics!
It's filled with, wait for it, basics. Now if you know me at all, you know I'm tickled pink at the idea of having a basics shop. I'm the kinda of person that loves using basic pieces, so this shop is pretty close to heaven on earth for me. I'm loving it.

3) Vivienne Tam's new collection was released! OMG! Again, very exciting. I'm in love with these colors and that black halter dress has me positively drooling. The only things I don't like are the prices. :( But be sure to pick up that darling maxi dress, it's too cute!

4) Now for a glitch. It wouldn't be stardoll without a glitch though, right? I wasn't looking forward to the newest Miley doll when I saw the preview picture (on the right) but then I saw the doll and went "what?" Those definitely aren't the same doll. But this time, I'm kind of glad. I really didn't like that preview pic!

5) Lastly, (no picture this time) there's a rumor going around on the spoiler sites that a new Elle collection is coming soon. Keep your eyes open stardollers, if this new collection is anything like the current one, it won't be one to miss.

Ok, well I think I've caught up on everything. Thanks to Maddy for keeping us alive while I was gone! :)

(oh and btw, RIP Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett.)
