Yesterday we were surprised with a Young Hollywood capsule collection inspired by Kim Kardashian's Paris Fashion Week looks. It consisted of a hairstyle and 2 necklaces (Balmain and Lanvin) but today the limited frenzy continues with not just accessories, but clothes worn by the celebrity couple Kimye. Prices range between 20 and 135 stardollars, nothing is SS only. Surprisingly, Stardoll made a lot of pieces available for this collection again, there are 1800 pieces of the jacket for example.

Sales are back with some decor this time! The staff decided to close down 2 of the oldest stores on Stardoll, Glamour and Bling Bling, so buy everything you like before it's gone! Also, Stardoll seems to be into making new dress-up mini games again, after Kendall Jenner they released a 3rd doll of Lady Gaga, click HERE to check it out. Her doll is inspired by her Oscars 2015 red carpet look and her clothes were chosen from different seasons of older Limited Edition and Antidote.
Are you planning to buy anything from the sale?
Show us how you'd dress up Gaga!

Agnes: Hi! First of all, congrats on winning SMW's March Medoll of the Month, how does it feel?
Sia: I must say that when I realized that I was the winner, I couldn't believe it! It feels amazing and I am extremely happy, as I wasn't expecting to win. As you can see I am still really excited!
Spring has officially begun, on my way home I've spotted lots of almond trees and violets that are already started to bloom (anybody else a fan of violet candy here?!) then I log in to see that Stardoll surprised us with 2 new floors of romantic vintage furniture and all kinds of plants and flowers - how amazing is this? Prices range between 4 and 35 stardollars, there are 3 starcoin items.

Hey dolls! As I logged into Stardoll today, I didn't expect anything new, just a normal thursday but as soon as I went to the starplaza I was so surprised to see new items had been released in the 'Fallen Angel' store, and I don't usually like the store since I wear all light colours but this one blew me away! Now now, I know you're all very aware because of the last post by our lovely writer LadyAnne Lena, so this is going to be a STYLING post! I will show you different styles, and which items look good together! Please remember that these are just my opinions however, and you can style these clothes any way your heart desires.
Stardoll surprised us with new release on Thursday, which is quite unusual. It's a whole new floor of Fallen Angel. The collection includes two starcoin items (blazer and bat necklace), while the rest of the prices range from 6 to 29 stardollars. One item is superstar only.

Hey dear dolls, Nimka here!
Today I am very excited as I’m doing my first makeup tutorial for you all, where I will re-create famous runway looks to bring some high fashion fun to your beauty parlour. Today I have chosen the quite simple but SO beautiful look from Chanel Spring-Summer 2014 couture collection to start off with, which is perfect if you want to add some sparkle to your doll. Here it is backstage on a model:
I wasn't expecting so many tributes shopping bags! Callie brought back Sea of Stars' Rose Coco Wilhelmina doll and three animated items (who wouldn't want those Harrods escalators or the Disco ball?) The prices go from 3-26sd and there are four starcoins items.

A huge hello to the readers of SMW and players of Stardoll! I’m the newest writer for this excellent blog, and perhaps introductions are in order.
You may or may not remember me but my name is Nimka (N1mka4eva), and in fact I wrote for SMW 4 years ago at the height of Stardoll society when the blogging community ruled! Since then most blogs have died, and those the quality of those that live on has gone extremely downhill - however, this beloved site has stayed iconic and true to it’s roots - still holding amazing competitions for you all and writing about the newest updates, which is why I’m so honoured to be back.
I have always believed that the most important part of blogging is the readers, without you, where would we be? I will be writing a few weekly posts including runway inspired & special makeup tutorials, how to style clothes, reviews, exclusive interviews, trend and anti-trend of the week, and much much more! I’m so excited to see this blog become even more influential, inspiring and entertaining just like the glory days, but we’re going to need you readers to support us, can we count on you? It’s time to come home.
PS. If you have any specific ideas you want for posts or makeup/outfit looks please comment so I can take them into consideration.

Two new floors of MS.TQ were released today, yay!
The hairstyles look gorgeous. The bases and the buns are just flawless and a big help for the ones who love doing DIY (although they could choose the same colors we have in Stardesign Hair, or allow us to use Dorée for these styles as well) Prices go from 3-11 stardollars and there's a pretty cheap and awesome starcoin item, the Chain Cuff Earring. According to Stardoll's Twitter page, the collection was inspired by beauty looks seen at SS 2015 fashion shows of Rodarte, Chanel and many more.

This time is dedicated to my least favorite article of clothing - the ugg boots. From the early 2000s until today, uggs have been more or less popular. Some were worn by celebrities, some designed by Michael Kors. They're worn by toddlers, teens, grown ups, even some older people. Claimed to be comfortable and warm and therefore perfect for cold fall and winter days, these boots are still worn even with shorts in the middle of summer. Some critize them and claim they're not good for the feet and that they don't give enough of support for the ankles, but yet uggs stay on their peak.
So lets check two outfits with these so popular boots.
NEW WAY OF PICKING MODELS: Answer the question at the end of the post, and the winners will be randomly selected. Winner will become an instant model for the next edition of Get The Look. You can only be model once per month.

This one seriously took me by surprise! They're so cute... this is how the store looks right now.
It seems that they will grow, maybe with Starpoints just like the tree in our suites?
Prices go from 9-55 sd, which is way more affordable than last time!

Dear members of the SMW Family,
I've been planning to announce my will for a while, but I think the right time has come today. X Awards was held on Sunday, I'm happy to tell you that I've won Blogger of 2015 and Stardoll's Most Wanted won Best News Blog of 2015. This couldn't have become real without YOU, my dear SMW Family. This award is your accomplishment too.
I'd like to thank my whole staff who's here to support me no matter what - JosephinaA, LadyAnneLena and Oayes for being the best and most reliable contributors I could ever wish for. Theshinystar for helping me out with creative ideas and supporting me during hard times. Crazycharmy and Modmayhem for their generous financial support regarding prizes. And at last but not least, the team of judges, katyperrycupcak, Mirdith, Miss.Privacy, and SkyKam for their great sense of criticism regarding entries.
Blogger of 2015 is the first award I've ever won in my Stardoll journey of almost 9 incredible years. I haven't been the main editor of Stardoll's Most Wanted for a long time, but I'm happy to know that my huge effort I've put into this site is getting widely acknowledged. I feel like I've found my right place at this blog and hopefully I'll be able to keep it running for a long time.
However - despite this great accomplishment, I had to sit down and think a little bit about my online life. I don't want to get into details about how it all escalated, but I seriously had to consider how much time I spend here, and how it affects my real life. Lately I started to feel like I'm losing my original energy and liveliness I used to put in editing the blog. A kind of creativity crisis has approached me. I've been running this site for 4 months now, overseeing every little detail, the everyday activity, how people come and people go. It's pretty time consuming and needs a lot of patience, not only when editing the blog but when you have to do the promoting yourself and handle all the social media platforms too. It's super hard to come up with the right impression.
That's why I decided to go on a short hiatus. It won't last for more than 1-2 weeks, I can assure. This means there won't be any comps starting from Thursday, however, store updates and comp results will get posted. I'll hand over the blog to the other writers to post about updates.
I'll be back with fresh ideas and comps. I just need a well-deserved break right now.
Attending X Awards, wearing Vivienne Westwood styled by JosephinaA
Decided to do a poll because we only had 13 entries (plus me, but I don't count haha)
Poll is open until March 13 (Friday)
Vote for 2 people!
Please no asking for votes or cheating. Polls are for blog members only.
No fashion week is complete without a trend report! It's already been 2 weeks since SFW ended but I enjoyed following the events so much, decided to edit my own little trend report, giving details about 5 trends I spotted. I've also included a special selection of Stardoll clothing for each trend, hope you will find your favorite pieces! Don't forget to show us how you would sport each style!

I swear I've JUST stepped through my apartment's door to find out the impatient waiting for the collection was completely pointless. Turns out Museum Mile is NOT limited this time, which is an extremely bothering fact after the day was spent in front of the computer by a lot of members. I usually have my Fridays off university but today I had to attend a special workshop which lasted for like 7 hours (been awake since 6 am GMT) and I've been checking Facebook for the latest updates whenever we had a short break.

Yet another floor of Nelly has been realeased. We had one floor on Monday, and one today. Most of the items are black, white or grey, unlike the first floor we recieved. I'd say that this one is better. The items are very easy to combine and the graphics are quite good. Price range is 7 to 23 stardollars.
IMPORTANT: Glitch on the lace t-shirt has been fixed.
