I don't know about you ...

But I'm feeling 22!

S U B C O U T U R E | Release Review

Brand new floor of designer gear in SubCouture for us this weekend! I'm pleasantly delighted that it's neither limited nor for SS members only, it's great that we can all get in on these designer-inspired pieces!
This release is Philipp Plein and Burberry inspired, and in my opinion it really is aimed at a specific market on Stardoll - I just don't really fit into it myself! I feel like we've been seeing quite a lot of grunge in the more special releases on Stardoll in the past few years, and for me it is starting to get a little old, but hey, that's just me! 
This collection did have a good range of clothing and accessories, and I did find myself picking up a few of the lesser grunge-styled pieces from the collection - the Tin Bow Dress, for example, I bought and have seen rather a lot of dolls styling it these past couple of days, it's clearly a winner! The bags are pretty versatile with a great range of shapes available - I personally can see the Tough Love Tote a popular choice with it's oversized style, studs and leopard print, and it's price at 18SD's (pretty average for a limited time collection). However for me the most popular piece of the collection would have to be the Chunky Necklace, which is a great bargain at 10SD's - it's versatile, so not only does it fit well with most pieces from this collection, it will easily slip into my wardrobe which is quite the opposite of what we're seeing in this store! 
Overall, a pretty average release - for me, I think the idea of SubCouture is great, but I think the collections could be a little better!

V O I L E | Release Review

Sorry, I started writing this when the release came out but I ran out of time - better late than never!
At the end of the week just there we got a lovely new Voile release to prep us for the upcoming winter season which will be filled with glitzy parties hopefully^ I love the ad banner on the main page, shown above, for me it makes me want to check out the pieces and try everything on!
So there's just one floor to this release, and it's full of dresses with a handful of accessories in typical Voile formal style. Some of the items, particularly the Cherry Satin Jumpsuit, remind me a lot of Voile Holiday Boutique - I'm hoping we'll get a release of that come December! Some of the ballgown-y dresses seem a little unwearable to me, I'm more into versatile pieces and these dresses are quite specific in their style, however they will be perfect for some people =) One dress I do love is the Snowdrop Applique Dress, which has great sparkles along with a lovely shape and length. It is a little pricey for most members at 24SD's, but it would be a great piece to buy if you're just going for one purchase from the collection. 
Wasn't too impressed with the shoes, not sure they're that great, and more accessories would have been fab, that beautiful Spike Crossbody Purse is the best item on the floor and more like it would have been amazing! It's only 11SD's (such a bargain) but is for SS only, I know I'll be buying it as soon as I get a membership again!
Overall I haven't actually bought anything yet and I haven't actually seen much being said about it, so I'm not sure if this was a successful release or not, but I do look forward to buying that bag once I can!

Suite Style

A great interior styling to show you guys today, and this one is from alicevel! It's an amazing moroccan-styled suite room, and I didn't even really recognise the interior until I started moving stuff and really went 'Wow' at how it's been transformed into something so different and unique =) It's fab and you should definitely go and give some compliments!

Fallen Angel | S P E E D R E V I E W

Last week we got a new collection of Fallen Angel into our Plaza - I'm quite impressed with this release as I've never paid much attention to Fallen Angel in the past, so it was a pleasant surprise to find myself buying several items from this release! My favorite clothing items have to be the Lanvin Inspired Dress and the Gothic Bedazzled Jeans, which I've been wearing over the weekend:
 The Houndstooth Knit Coat is also great, and I spotted ndende97 wearing it super stylishly:
There were also numerous "Inspired by" pieces, both clothing and shoes, which is great and really making these designer-like pieces much more accessible across the site! This has really made me hopeful for more great releases in the future from this store =)
