Featured Designer: Acne

The fall collections are in. I'm still searching them through, but I'd like to share with you one of my current favorites: Acne F/W 2011. The collection consists of 26 lovely outfits, in a color scheme of different tones of camel, blue, orange, nude and so on. The fabric choice was also a great hit, if you ask me. Tulle mixed with leather, velvet and others. Very interesting choices, if you ask me.
Click here to watch the whole collection. Above is one of my favorites. So what's your opinion about Acne and it's F/W 2011 collection? Completely gorgeous or just simply tacky?

100sd Up for Grabs

This blog has been abandoned, really. If I'm honest no-one could be bothered to post and we were all doing some project, somewhere around Stardoll. My first thing I want to talk/tell you about is;

1. Progress

We haven't been telling you anything about our first collection; Venus. We just wanted to share with you the latest updates, whats going on and what will be happening in the run up to SFW.

Plamena and I, had our very first meeting with our Global Group mentor, Bruno. We discussed the usual stuff, what we had for the collection, if we needed any assistance, but we came on to a topic that concerned me and Plamena, which you may not have known yourselves. The Couture House, should we say 'Brand' is Couture Stardoll, hence the title of the blog. Our first collection we named 'Venus' containing Grecian Style Couture. So, no, the line is not called Venus. Secondly, it came apparent that we had two winners for the design contest. Yes? Well, we recently, very recently, set them a task which meant them having to design another outfit for the collection. Here was the brief;

As you won the design competition, we have another task for you. We need you to design one more Grecian Style dress. It can be totally simplistc or totally glammed up, but take into consideration what the other entrants got in their feedback. This should ensure your designs perfection and success. Both designs will be featured in our collection, that is in SFW, and as an added bonus and a thankyou, you'll get to model both of your outfits! You need to have submitted your designs by 8:00pm GMT on 23rd Februray. Good luck! We would also appreciate if you could do them before this date. Thanks! Designs to be sent to me.

Me and Plamena decided that the two winners, greatdj & Foxiuke, were not getting enough recognition so we required they create another design. and that they would both feature in the SFW collection.
Thirdly, I was thinking of making some CSD t-shirts for you to wear throughout fashion week, or just as a souvenir. The proceeds earned from these t-shirts will go towards future competitions and a raffle that is going to be held. But firstly I wanted to know whether you would buy these tees!
Finally, we are 5 designs, and 2 make-ups aways from the collection being released! We're all so happy as to how it has come together, and so is our mentor. At first, we believe we couldn't do it, but thanks to Bruno, we got a major confidence boost that puts us in the postition we're in today. We're quite glad about SFW being put back a week, too, as we wouldn't have done it without that week. Who would have thought a week would give so much.

2. Prizes
Our very own writer, pwincesssara, has kindly donated 100sd for prizes to keep the blog active in the run-up to SFW. We are still deciding on how to award people with half of the money but I have a task for all those graphics designers out there. As I have recently been signed to an agency, I need to build up my portfolio. I need everybody who wants to enter, to use me as a model, and create either and accessory or an outfit on my doll, basically modelling it. All winning entries will receive gifts but the main winner will win 50sd! Also, everybody who receives a gift, their entries will be a part of a collection called, the People's Choice. This is basically a collection made from Stardoll members themselves.

Runway to Reality: Denim Look with H&M

One of my fav shops on the high-street, which isn't that expensive, is H&M. Adore this shop to bits! I always manage to find something I like for a price I like-which is more than I can say about Stardoll. So, for this weeks "Runway to Reality" segment, I decided to use florals-after all, it's Spring!-and use H&M clothing.

I know they're not very floral-like, but hey, they've got the flowers on! I really loved these dresses, and the best part is they can be worn both casually and for a night out! Colourwise, I'd suggest going for the cream one or black, mainly because most my wardrobe is black! But the other two definitely have a spring feel to them! I'd recommend wearing a short white cardi/bolero on top of the dress-I don't think the sleeveless works well in Summer... Your choice though :)

Dw, they're only leggings xD It might be spring, but it's still gonna be cold out, so make sure you wear some leggings-black or white, depends on the colour of the dress you're wearing. Keep it neutral-don't go OTT! fav part :)

Which girl doesn't love a charm bracelet? They set off any outfit perfectly!

Carry around a neutral coloured suede bag for all your necessities, and that little bit extra a girl needs.

These were the best high-heels I could find online...Ikr? I don't like them much...If you're like me and hate high-heels, then go out in a pair of black or white flats with the ribbons on-you know, the ones that sort of look like Ballet shoes?  (x

I think next time, I'll try Forever21. I want to give a shot to a shop I don't see in my local shopping centre everyday... xD
