Wear My Closet Challenge #91

I actually finished a graphic last night! Woot woot, although I actually started it like 2 months ago, for me that's an achievement, maybe I'll start another today =) But I really like this outfit =D
Clothing:
Jewelled Blouse, Pretty 'n Love
LE Patchwork Jeans, LE

Accessories:

Sports luxe

I still like the 'Sports Luxe' trend, it's been going around for a couple of years now, and for me it doesn't get old at all, and it doesn't for DieDunkleMaid either - I really love this look! I keep seeing both the shirt and jeans being worn terribly and it makes me want to pull my hair out, so it was a relief to see a great styling - most people didn't pair the pieces together and for me the accessories really make the look, I am a particular fan of the shoes and bag =)

Wear My Closet Challenge #90

Both of these pieces kinda stumped me in the styling department when thinking about how to use them - so why not use them together, not sure if it's one of my better ideas, but I kinda like how it turned out!
Clothing:
Faux Feather Dress, Voile Holiday Boutique

Accessories:

Minimal florals

Featuring one of our guest writers today because I loved the outfit - BeautifulOval! So simple, and the bright pinks immediately catch my eyes, plus those shoes are fab! The whole thing reminds me of peony flowers, which I see EVERYWHERE these days, it seems like they're all over the magazines and blogs which I read, it's nice to get a little taste of them on Stardoll from just this simple yet effective styling =)


Sorry there haven't been many features lately, but I've been trawling around the site looking at close to 300 suites a day and really nothing is catching my eye to feature =(

An LE get together - BALMAIN Overflow

Finally styling looks from the last LE collection which came out in April (you can read my review HERE) - and it was a bit of a Balmain slap in the face! I love the Balmain collection it's based on and more would have been soooo amazing, but anyway, here's what I've put together - enjoy =D 
Thought and opinions? LET ME KNOW! Blogs thrive on comments and just because we can post a couple of times a day here doesn't mean that we don't need motivation to keep going!

Wear My Closet Challenge #85

Just got such a pretty pair of heels in Topshop, can't wait to wear! Been looking to style this bag for ages and I kinda love it in this look =)
Clothing:
Cozy Home Sweater, It Girls
Silver Couture Trousers, Giambattista Valli

Accessories:
Paris Bag, Young Hollywood

Float

Beautiful gold and white combination from ChristinaKisa - I think it's a great styling with the gold accents and not typically something I'd go for, so I love seeing others using it so well! Flowing skirts are very popular right now around the site, and this one definitely caught my eye among the ones I've seen. Plus I love the hair with this look, it clears the neck perfectly for those large earrings, which again aren't typically my taste but I love them here and would probably consider them in the future =)

Evening

Such a beautiful evening look from Miver - I don't think I've seen this dress and I'm now kinda in love with it! And the look really goes the whole way, with perfect shoes and bag for the dress, along with pretty nude nails and a fabulous necklace! Plus the makeup looks great - those pink lips are a perfect standout and the eye makeup is so complementary to the eye colour, love it soooo much =D

Subcouture Stylings

So Subcouture came out wayyyyy back at the end of March and now finally is my Styled Outfits post! Definitely far far too late, but I still wanna do it because I said I would =) I had actually done this all yesterday and then my computer decided to crash before I could save what I'd done, so I had to do it all again - searched for close to 2 hours for the real version of the trousers, but had no luck - found some similar ones but nothing identical - anyone know? So I included 3 stylings of these for you =)

Falling for interior design

{Sorry about the dreadful image quality - I'm on my home PC and although the photoshop version is like 3 ahead of what I have on my laptop, I can't seem to use the same editting and saving setting, v. v. v. annoying!}

Absolutely had to feature this wonderful suite which belongs to Arki. - look how much effort has gone into changing it from a simple and almost kinda strange interior to a bedroom that frankly we're all jealous of, I mean just look at that closet that she created herself =O Just amazing! Some of her other suite rooms are pretty fabulous as well so I suggest you head over to her suite and give her some recognition for that hard work!!! =D 

Legs long coat

I love this look featuring such a quirky jacket from funnybeach - I think it's amazing with the white lace detailed dress! Platforms would never be a failure in a look like this and I love the addition of the sunnies. Also think that bright lip works to perfection with the little red accents from the coat - fab look overall!

Wear My Closet Challenge #83 ~ Cannes

If I were in Cannes right now, these would be the maxi dresses that I'd be donning - another post with multiple looks, but you'd get bored of seeing 4 separate maxi dress based posts so why not lump them all together in one =) I also just went and had a hair cut, it's been a year since my last one, got like 6 inches chopped off!
And in an attempt to do more beauty parlor related things, I've also included the makeup looks which I used - fear not, this probs wont last long, we all know I'm pretty bad at makeup and the likes!

HotBuys Galore!

So I'd been saving up numerous pieces to style while I've been studying, and here are two of the Hotbuys which were released - I've also included the RL versions of these, both of which I really love! The pieces were both shown in menswear shows, which I think really brings about the idea of versatility onto the site, enjoy!
This blazer was 18SD from It Girls and came out in April (April 5th actually, I've been waiting to style it since then!) - I did show two featured looks with this piece here with both looks choosing skirts and bare legs, so I have opted to style with jeans =) First look went for matching colours, which made the red stripe really stand out against the white jeans and black accessories, and for the second look I ventured a little outside the box and chose jeans (love this boyfriend style pair, I might actually do a whole post on them!) along with black accessories. Seemed to be finding hats a necessity with this jacket, guess they work well and I love both of these!
This shirt is a May release and cost 15SD, I've seen a couple of looks around the site, but haven't featured any - I choose trousers/jeans for this piece again, skirts could look really nice, but would definitely require some thought to look great! I ended up styling a pair of jeans, a print and a simple black pair of trousers, and I think all actually work with this shirt. For me, because it is pretty long, you really need heels, but that's just my opinion and how I've dressed my doll!



P.S. 900th post on the blog, can't really believe it!

Caged heels

Great classy black look from P.a.M.a, I keep wanting to buy these heels or similar ones and then I stop myself because I've no idea how to style them, then I see this! Love them in the look, and love seeing a maxi skirt paired with a tee - it's definitely unusual, but it works! Accessories have been chosen well, and I love this hairstyle chosen, it goes nicely =)

Having a ball

Lulluplix is looking so stunning in this skirt and top combination! Plus I love the simple beauty that is behind the look, this is how that hair should be worn =) The top is probably regarded as an unconventional pairing for the beautiful flowing ball-gown-esque skirt, but I like it, and I am very much wearing a skirt (albeit a midi/knee length one) to the upcoming ball that I'm going to =D It definitely doesn't need a whole bunch of accessories or jewellery, the clothing really speaks for itself^

Plug

Bit of a shameless plug here, The Stardoll Beauty Spot has started it's summer posting, meaning actual regular posts, maybe not everyday, but a whole handful of times a week! I'm hoping this blog takes off and could have the same success as we have here at The Stardoll Lookbook, so I'd love if you checked it out by clicking on it's header below!

Collared Sunnies

Gotta love this look from our very own Guest Writer, SarahVIP! Couldn't help but feature it myself =) This is exactly the sort of look I want my doll to be rocking allllll the time! Adore the navy paired with black and grey, I think it works perfectly, plus those sunnies in the collar are fab, that's how I usually wear mine in RL!

A new segment, I'm feeling this will be the regular posts, with special features, reviews etc. spaced out when something crops up that needs a post!

Wear My Closet Challenge #82

I know this is very much a wintery outfit - however it seems that I have a lot more winter based clothes in my closet, I must have a good 10 or so winter looks that I'll be sporting in these summer months, will just have to persevere! 
I actually have 42 more posts planned out for this challenge, which gives me a bit of an odd number - I have a tiny handful of clothes left in my closet which I'm deeming un-usable for the remainder of this challenge, well most are dresses, which I can't call styling if I just chuck it on and choose shoes and a bag, but we'll see!

A Popular Style

A new MS.TQ collection was released this week, I myself amn't that much of a fan, but one hairstyle has really taken off around the site - lets take a look!
TOP ROW L-R = AnnMason Asya2004 J.Cool.J Mia1435 BOTTOM ROW L-R = Sarah.Parker. SarahVIP Polina_Bast AnaCleta.
I love how you can take just one hairstyle in one colour and make it work and look different in a whole number of different looks! I've been pretty bad with trying out makeup recently, but after snapping all these looks with the hair, I noticed each dolls makeup so much more, and it's great at the individuality between them, it's honestly becoming a bit of an inspiration and my little cogs are turning up there for my dolls makeup looks for the future! Plus I might buy that hair now, I think it would look awesome in a formal setting, but can't wait to try it out in a casual look, may look amazing with some sort of hat or elaborate hair accessory =) 

Ralph Lauren - Chosen Pieces

So back at the start of April we had a new Ralph Lauren release in the Nelly store and I've been saving up the pieces that I bought to style and show you guys! Been a while, but it might make you have another look and you could find something else you like =) 
I ended up buying 6 pieces, mainly accessories actually, which normally I complain about in collections - but this time I was impressed, particularly the nude pumps, gotta love them so much! Can't wait to incorporate the pieces into my regular wardrobe, but for now, here's something:
