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?
